Here's my entry: Photoshop, 15 minutes (Wacom)

@ Nilk Narf : Lol, Your really made me laugh

@ Taron 333 : I like the lighting on the ground

@ Acocan : Nice try with the lighting. You might consider making the lighted effects more of a yellowish or reddish hue, because usually reflected light takes on a color somewhere in between that of the object and that of the light source. What's more, light travels in a straight line, so you can estimate where the reflection, or the light source is, just by picturing a ball ricocheting off the surface towards the eye. I hope this helps your trial.

Any suggestions about my piece would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Behind door you really want to know?

This one was more of a team effort between me and DragonMageXVII (mostly him), I did a basic sketch for fun and he added some photoshop magic. Maybe...1 hour while chatting? paint, then photoshop editing.

Thank you nilk narf, phade and DmageXVII for your comments. I'll try to make the best of them.

By the way good work all! Even though there's isn't a piece that hours have been spent on; there are many very good ones.
