Sand & Screw. No outside sources.

I was happy with it. BUT
I should have done more. Wasn't 'interesting' enough.

...and looking on the bright side: I did get the blackfox's vote!

By far the quickest H2H entry I've ever done. I figured making a ball ripple would blow away my competition... but the ugly perspective of the tee is what caught the attention. Embarassed Congrats madonnemay.

I used the sand to create the planet. Just filters and blending modes. The background is all PS. The foreground ships are created from the screws using the template, and the background ships are external.

Originally I was going to put the cat's head on a human body but ran out of time. So I fried it instead! Twisted Evil

Hi. Thanks for votes and comments - much appreciated!

Claf asked how much was drawn versus use of externals... no externals. Not many good narwhal references, hence the intentionally comical asymmetric look and sinister demeanor. Cloned/warped the sand to use as narwhal skin - more evident on narwhal on right - dark patch on belly is dark patch from sand. Applied blending and adjustment layers to smooth out the texture.

Seelcraft noted low res... umm yeah, noticed that too once live. My vision kinda comes and goes - looked great when I posted. lol. Especially wtf re bubbles... all I can think is that they got covered in bear fur to make them so fuzzy. Smile

Salvezza noted that image might be perfect if screws retained source 'look'. Had them as such originally, but turned sinister narwhals into sadistic narwhals and was concerned the kids might cry. Smile Actually I created this image for a friend and she didn't like the 1st look, so changed it knowing there would be risk. Worked out OK.

It was a lot of fun to create. Inspired by this song:

- you know, they can beat a polar bear in a fight (because they cheat! lol)

Lots of great images in this round and some tough choices too. Good luck all!

Cool! Nice work! Some illustrative talent! Smile

Hard source! Didn't know where to go... went this direction, and posted this "plenty of flaws" chop! Hope I'll be more inspired next round...
