 Haha, thanks for going through the trouble for my eyes! I quite like this one, I think both your entries are great and perhaps the top 3 for this challenge. :)

Seriously?! hmmm....Going to replace the link and the image itself now >>

Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 3/8/2011 16:59

Nope, link is broken too... :<

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/8/2011 06:03

 Oh no :l okay, so....i edited the description and added a link to it. Hopefully everyone who couldnt see it before can see it now.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 3/8/2011 00:06

I'm also unable to see it. :(

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/7/2011 14:55

 Really? Hmm...that's scary Dx i wonder why you can't.

Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 3/7/2011 14:07

I can't see it but it looks great from the preview...

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/2/2011 17:06

 @|||| Thanks. And yea they are supposed to look horizontally stretched ( decided to use wide pixels instead of normal pixels for a couple of reasons: 1) I've never used wide pixels before and thought it would be cool to use them. 2) The canvas looked way too empty with normal pixels )

My other option other than wide pixels was to repixel the whole thing but bigger but meh, i kind of liked the wide pixels feeling so i kept it. 

@Riva Hmm when i was doing it, the way it rested seemed okay to me, but now that you mentioned it, it keeps bothering me =l. And yeah i guess you could shade the bulb better but idk, i tried my best and that's what i came up with. Would you mind showing me an edit? Would really help :)

Very nice little still life.. though the pixels look stretched horizontally slightly in the larger version. I wanted to say this yesterday but forgot my log-in pass heh.

DemonSpawnn (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/2/2011 14:35

strange... I can't see it on my computer... :(

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 3/2/2011 11:22

I like the style and it has a certain quality overaly.

The bulb (both in preview and image) is not shaded well. I would define its shape 1st, then choose a differen - cleaner - way of stylising the glass material. Also it doesnt rest right on the surface.

nice shading, nice colors, nice AA, great job :)

eNerGi (Level 1 Private) @ 3/2/2011 02:02

Awesome, the best I've seen for now :)

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 3/2/2011 01:11

like it, although it seems like the whole is a bit squashed (e.g. the sockets are oval in stead of round).

Jv's (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/1/2011 16:57

 Very Nice

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/1/2011 16:39

 Thank you :)
