Halfway through I almost gave up because it wasnt looking very good, but Im glad I finished it now. To me, the best way to view this is to actually look at it while removing layers, so if u want PSD, ask! Those are burns, not shadows, on walls

Voting has ended, but you can still leave a comment

Brilliant job. But the shadow of the cross and that of the doorframe cannot coexist. The crossshadow does not fit otherwise too.

Mason, this is truly a extraordinary tribulte to your brother in the Marines! Beautiful and meaningful imagery... I hope you can e-mail it to him and/or print it out for him. I'm sure he'd love to know what his younger brother has done! :D

I experimented with many different lighting styles, but I picked this one b/c I liked the soft lighting. Also, I did the dirt overflow into the room several times, but this is the best I could do. IF anyone has any good tips on doing dirt on tile...;)

In case anyone didn't notice, I made the shadow of the window frame cast a shadow of a cross. Hence the title.

People, please don't let your political views get between you and the vote or comment button; The chop is purely for the art itself.

I know, queen. but then, 99% of the chops on this site couldn't possible exist! lol

Actually, queen, they are on Tatooine. two suns. yeah, thats it. Tatooine... ;)

The binary system —Tatoo 1 & Tatoo 2 -are, in reality, widely separated in space but just happen to lie in roughly the same direction as seen from our vantage point.So still 1shadow.:-)
