Looking very cool! I like the scale of the grass. Perhaps the scale of the background pumpkins might be enhanced by having the fog decrease towards their feet?
Thanks stumpf and same to you as well! Great modeling on your little skeleton in the wooden car.
Thanks Harmonic and I did just that by changing Lil' Punky's angle and size.
Thanks Marsysas. I'm not sure if I'll use any fog in the final render or not, but I had it in the first render temporarily to make it easier to separate the foreground from the backround so it didn't look so busy.
As you can see, I'm now working on the foreground with Lil' Punky. I've touched up the grass in ZBrush by painting in some variation using RGB only mode. I've also added some small rocks and painted in the ground a little bit more to show some variation.
This piece is a lot of fun I'm looking forward to the finished version.
It's is a good thing that that hack Rick Baker didn't throw his hat into the ring too so you didn't withdraw.
As I have mentioned to some of the others ,this would be great in the October Shadows art show, Maybe next year.
THE MAN has posted and I don't know what to say. I have always admired your works, style and imagination and to recieve a favorable critique from you is really flattering. I'm speechless
Of coarse you know I was only kidding about you entering. I would be really curious to see what you would have come up with for this contest.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and post.
WOODY It is more like THE OLD MAN .
I have a piece that I did for the October Shadows show that I was going to post on ZBC once the show finished and the on line gallery was up. It would have fit in well for this contest, I did it about a month before this contest started.
They keep telling me that the web site will have the gallery up and running any day now , but they have been saying that for about a week and a half now.
When it's up and running you can check out my stuff and a bunch of cool artwork here
If you go there now all you won't see much except for the artist bios and some last years work. It was a cool event this year with lots of great Halloween images.
i like how you made the grass ... keep it up
There is no failure, except in no longer trying.

this is a crisp looking image, and the perspective is great. i still have trouble setting up the fog in my images, you seem to have that under control, well done.
Starting to look very polished.
Love the whole concept and style.
This keeps looking better I really like the perspective.
Hey that's really cool.

Thanks again guys, much appreciated.
I've just been taking a break from my final render tweaking cause I tend to agonize over it to make a turntable video of Lil' Punky.
I know that sometimes the video acts a little oddly, but go ahead and watch it anyway....you know you want to hehe.
Tried to embed video, but didn't work ( html not on )
Here's the link Lil' Punky turntable
