Final Image: Scarecrow_final




Story:
Because of the polluted water in the nearby area the crows have mutated. The environment filled with radiation caused the birds to become aggressive. So they wreak their anger upon nearby scarecrow, who frightened them. Scarecrow tries to escape, but it is stuck in the mud. The rest is your own imagination :)

I call this the final image. At some point you just have to say it is done, or otherwise you are constantly changing something:)) Comments and critiques are appreciated.

Great work, I think you have a good eye for detail. I am impressed with it I only have one opinion about the toxic sludge that you have in the ground. I would make it stand out more because the sludge helps tell the story completely with out a naritve. The sludge also explains the reason why the scarcrow is alive to begin with. Of coarse its only one mans opinion

gpepper: Thanx for the replay man. I really appriciate your feedback.

nwiz25: Thanx mate. I am glad you like the workflow. To be honest it wasn't exactly planed from start to finish, the way it looks now. It was more like trial and error and adding stuff that looks good. It is basicly the first full image, and I did alot of experiments to come up with final look. The hardest part was to render and composite the whole scene. I learned alot and I plan to do full tutorial in near future.

Artisan-Hawks: Thank you for your constructive reply. I am happy that you like the final image. I wanted to emphasis the toxic sludge, but it was way to agressive and the picture lost it's focus. It would stick out too much if you look it from far. Thanx for you observation.

Nemesix: Thanx man. I am glad you like the colors and lightning. It was also my favourite color choice. Maybe scarecrow will eventually run away Who knows?

OKMER: Thanx mate for your kind words. I am happy also that I went trough the finish line.

THECLYKE: Thanx man. For me. Finishing the picture is already a big win.

Ferx: wow you are making me blush with your kind words. I sure am happy that you apricate my image so much. Thanx.

Hey Vatrobot. Sorry for the late replay. I have been very buisy. thanx for the kind words man, I really apriciate it. Fortunatly I don't live to close to Krsko, so I am fine, or am I?

But lately there has been so much talk about environmental problems, and us destroying it, that I had to make something that will reflect todays main topic. And Krsko power plant served as an inspiration about radioactive vaste.
