good integration.

wiz you are very talented and have a great eye for detail. i looked at the flickrphoto and don't really see the big deal. chopping the source into a existing photo or vise versa is what we do. so great chop and source intergration

sorry, I'd have voted for this one, if "oldage" didn't show us the picture on FLICKR.COM you took the greatest part from... I'm a bit disappointed.
Oldage Oldage
I remember seeing that pic few months back.

This is a case where the original artist (Peter Bengtsson) should be mentioned for that is where the true impact of this piece comes...

after seeing the flckr link, I am a bit shocked, this should have been linked. I really thought all the octopus had been added to this scene and shadows and highlights added.

All of you who commented are good and great choppers, and it comes right in your face that there is a simple work of integration made by Wiz, i think cheater is a bit offensive
TheShaman TheShaman
D'oh, well at least he did use the source... & I agree, Cheater is a bit much.

Wiz has a style all of his own which many times relies on modifying an existing piece of art or advertisement, some of which people recognize and some do not. Occasionally it's more his work than someone else's. This shouldn't be a suprise to anyone.
tadams tadams
In this case a credit should have been given because the piece is more about the strange octopus than about the clever integration of the source.
tadams tadams
Wiz? Wiz? Are you tangled up with your octopus? :D

"You won't get any older 'Oldage' by calling me names!" If like Andy, you'd asked me for a source image, I would have PM'ed it, for you to see. But sadly you operate without putting your brain into gear!"
Oldage Oldage
you have used someone else magnificent work without giving him credit. That is cheating. To me you ruined it.
Wiz Wiz
"Sorry I meant to say Marco, and not Andy in my last reply". (FYI: inquiry as to the source I used in my 'Arch' entry)
Wiz Wiz
"Just keep out of my crosshairs Altziemer!"
Soze Soze
Chopping is not only manupulation of source or texture and brushwork!!!!! Integration tecnique is very important in a chop to let it look realistic. I think not only that the word cheating is too much.
Soze Soze
i think also that it is completely wrong to say something like that. Wiz maked a chop in his style. He did a ggod work for me
Soze Soze Look on google the voice HOSTEL and see what a poor integration i did. But it looks terrific good. Sometimes a good idea is better as a lot of work
Wiz Wiz
"THNX Soze for your moral support, remind me to mention your name the next time I get a speeding ticket!" ;-) LOL!

cheating is far too harsh here, it isn't cheating, I just thought more work was done, the intergration is still quality

Agreed cheater is harsh, though originally looking at the chop without viewing the original is a bit deceiving. As I thought more work was put in to it. Don't tell anyone though, I've had a few chops that are a bit deceiving too. hehehe. ;)

unfortunately there have several chops here lately that have been snagged from elsewhere and not noted as being so until they're "caught". as soon as I saw this the thought that came to my mind was "worth 1000?"
WhimSea WhimSea
I think externals should be listed not pm'd to just one that asks... especially in the case where it's obvious that it was photoshopped and could possibly be thought of as your photoshopping - this isn't just about this entry either.
WhimSea WhimSea
I have been suspicious of a lot of entries lately... even in the prize contests. Let people know exactly how much work you did. List your externals right off the bat.

Bernardo Barbi is the artist that created this art piece "Octopus" (that peter guy just had a link for the art). Check out Bernardo's detailed page about he created his CG art.
WhimSea WhimSea
oh, and one more thing - this is copyrighted artwork, so shouldn't be used in a chop at all. even in the PSC rules.
