Vampires dont have reflections, so whether you meant to or no I dont think their soap should either.

The blood master strikes again! ~ I had a feeling we would see some realistic blood work soon enough" ~ great job, and idea! lol

The detail level with the blood on the towel is simply fantastic. Explanation necessary (my guess is a huge pot of coffee and hours of tiny smudge tool - then again I'm a noob and it might just be an effect that I've not found yet)

i like the little details ("for the monster inside," "tooth whitener," etc.). the blood tends to overwhelm those details a bit. still, creative thinking.

I see you darkened the wall but didn't darken the wall in the reflection. On purpose or an oversight?
Stevster Stevster
Love the no reflection idea, just like the movies!
roy Green roy Green
I never understood the no reflection thing about vampiries. Apart from the fact that we would not be able to see behind them in the mirror image because they are not transparent, why cant we see their clothes!!
Alex Alex
Drowe Drowe
The whole not seeing them thing I think goes along with how superman's clothes never get destroyed. There is an aura around them that makes everything vampirish making the clothes see through. Also I love "Soap for the monster inside"

what Alex said...
arcaico arcaico
Tofu... that is called "flaw"... not to mention there's no reflection at all in the mirror... but hey... marco can just show up and say it was on purpose to justify his lazyness on doing it...
mason4300 mason4300
arcaico, the "no reflection" is because it is Vampire stuff. Get it? Vampires don't have reflections? haha. He did that on purpose obviously. I do agree that the reflected wall needs to be darkened, though.
arcaico arcaico
I don't remember asking you anything mason....
arcaico arcaico
marco, please put yer little pup back in the leash...
mikey mikey
Stop being so jealous! ~ just vote for it! ~ you know you love it!
arcaico arcaico
actually, no I don't mikey... if I had liked it I'd have voted for it. And if I had to be jealous of a chopper in here, for sure marco wouldn't be in the list...
Drowe Drowe
If i could have voted for it twice i would have so it would have been like arcaico voted for it. You can only do so much
Goat1981 Goat1981
It's pretty obvious that Marco made the "vampire" tubes out of the tubes in the original image that already [i]has the reflection[/i] of the tubes. Hence, I think the *removal* of the reflection is intentional, and not lazyness.
Goat1981 Goat1981
Goat1981 Goat1981
Oh... that's how you do italics. Oops. I suck at the interweb.
Goat1981 Goat1981
All of the above! Yay!
marcoballistic marcoballistic
lol I go away for an evening and it all kicks off again ha ha.... well basically Arc whether you like it or not, the removal of all the reflection and the fact the reflection is duller than the main image are both intentional
marcoballistic marcoballistic
the reflection gone because as everyone has already pointed out, the reference to vampires, and the dullness because the vampires world reflected is duller, or thats the way I understood it. If it going to come down to your opinion versus mine...
marcoballistic marcoballistic
...well I guess we could surely write a few books on that now lol
TheShaman TheShaman
ok marco, I get the whole Vamp products thing, but what about blood in the reflection? Isnt that from his/her victim? or the towels & the display case? those apparently are vamp products too? I also agree about the wall darkened.
marcoballistic marcoballistic
The entire thing was vamp products Sean, from my point of view, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I did what I set out to do, the reflection dullness is also open to opinion, basically if you like it like it, if not not, its all good :D
TheShaman TheShaman
hey its cool marco, but I guess I just dont get it at all... geez more I think about this, the less I understand lol chalk it up to a case of the Mondays I guess....
arcaico arcaico
Goat... what's easier? To edit the reflected tubes and splatter reversed in the mirror or just to erase them and put a plain reflection? And thanks Sean... you saved me time on pointing the splatter is obviously non vampire...
marcoballistic marcoballistic
lol obviously I must get some 'real' vamp blood next time
mikey mikey
There is a thing called, an idea too people" it's all not about perfection! so stop complaining and picking it apart! vote for the idea! amen.
arcaico arcaico
I only vote for ideas for those who do not claim to be top notch choppers... top notch choppers should not have flaws... have ya seem flaws in my chops being forgiven by good choppers?
Feral Hamster Feral Hamster
araico - yes. and since when has marco ever called himself a top-notch chopper? others may say it for him, but i don't recall him ever being an egotistical bastard about his success. and erasing the reflection isn't laziness. leaving it as is woul
marcoballistic marcoballistic
I must agree Arc, can't recall saying that either....
arcaico arcaico
last time humbleness to earn votes... didnīt work though...
