Merry Christmas and all that jazz. And always, let me have it! Oh, background image was off SCX. The rest is source and brushes.

I actually like this better than others in comp that are similar. Same ideas are always done, it is okay, just some look for originality in ideas. I would say you have found near enough the perfect external for use with the bauble, great shadow work too

this is nicely done. look out for a teeny artifact at the bottom and top right of the ornament. looks like a little silver poking through there. use the clone stamp to rid yourself of these before you merge your ornament layer.

I'm seeing that other people did this too and that I really should have looked before I chopped... sorry if I ripped anyone off, it was unintentional.

Wasn't this a speed chop?

happens often that people have similar ideas. it doesn't mean you can't do YOUR interpretation! And yes, this was a "speed" chop, so advantage didn't help.

My mistake. I didn't see that it was a speed chop.

No worries either way. I just didn't want to be disrespectful at all. That and it could have been avoided if I'd looked through the entries first. Thanks for being cool about it!
