thanks you all again

apocalipto9 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/19/2012 12:07

 amazing! very good work.

hnt6581 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/19/2012 05:46

Wow! This thing glows with its own lightsource. Great pic!

ripatti (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/18/2012 17:52

2Frost: well, you convinced me. Your variant looks a bit better

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 7/18/2012 14:18

 @Frost it is extremely impressive that you got that close with the RGB-values. sheesh. 

anyway this is very good, I think the face or the brightest pert whatever it is could use maybe a bit of clarifacation. very good otherwise. 

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/18/2012 10:04

Fantastic one, got my vote!

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 7/18/2012 01:37


I checked the actual color and it turned out that the RGB-values is 228,255,40. Close enough!

I also made a quick edit with my estimated values:

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 7/18/2012 01:27

ripatti: if you check the RGB-values of the brightest yellow you'll see that they are something like 230,255,40. That means more green than red, thus the slight green tint.  I'd guess that something like 255,230,80 would look a little bit better.

(I love doing palette-edits in my head without actually checking the results... Keeps the brain up and running. That kind of exercise is pretty good if you want to improve your color-skills)

SolarLune (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/17/2012 13:01

Indeed, this is pretty awesome. I like how bright his head seems to be - nice job!

CaptainLuksy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/16/2012 17:51

This is awesome! :D

ripatti (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/16/2012 14:15

thank you all again)

2Frost: hmm... may be it is feature of my or your display (or both o O), but my yellow is not so green as for me

Gamamoto (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/16/2012 03:53

amazing !

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 7/15/2012 01:55

The glow-effect is nicely done.

One thing that bothers me a bit is the slightly green tint in the bright yellow.

Grimm_Dingo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/14/2012 15:06

ThePixelKnight (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/14/2012 14:15

2TheoVision: may be you are right) i will try to do it and then I will see that will happen

Muiriled (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/13/2012 19:11

Amazing, just amazing.

SolarGears (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/13/2012 17:51

I'm loving the lighting and colors in this! 

Mr. Matti (Level 5 Sniper) @ 7/13/2012 08:38

Wow, this looks great. Faved!

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 7/13/2012 08:22

 amazing, I luv it

A2J2TIWARI (Level 4 Murderer) @ 7/13/2012 07:39

This is just... a wonder! The octopus really looks very, very good! The shine is just great, man!

Great work!

Wayne (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/13/2012 01:58

 It's like the BBC did a nature special on the sun, and this is the image they came back with.  Nicely rendered!

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/13/2012 01:58

It looks like the octopus is translucent and emits it's own lightsource. Very impressive!

One note: now the head looks a bit seperated from the tentacles, by adding just a bit more yellows to the tentacles it will make it more look like a whole.

Thumbs up!

sodium (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/13/2012 00:09

This is the best entry so far. All the other entries that I've seen look all messy and don't flow properly, but this one hits the nail on the head.

Nevercreature (Level 9 Whale Shark) @ 7/12/2012 23:29

Nice one!! I like it!!

ripatti (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/12/2012 07:03

thank you, guys)

WhyMe (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/11/2012 12:16

 Ooh, this one is very nicely done 

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 7/11/2012 10:37

 Looks great. I love the similarity between the tentacles and solar flares.

offwhite (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 7/11/2012 08:58

This is beautiful! I wish something like this actually existed... *dreamy*

Dredlockz (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/11/2012 05:49

 Wow, love that texture
