@catf0x- Aw, thanks!  I had the idea to do a still life based on a videogame or cartoon, but it took some thinking to find one I like with more than one glass object

This is very original for the challenge, it made me sooo excited when I saw it in the Challege thread!   So awesome and wonderfully executed, I especially love the middle area of the dragonball and the glove.

Brilliant piece!

The glove just makes me drool...

@Lucas- Yeah, CELS was making a joke, he edited that screencapture to say 9000+.  It's a Dragon Ball Z reference and meme.

@Lucas- I am disappoint. Learn about important internet history here.

It's only 24 colors, look here: http://www.pixelaria.org/ferramentas/contador-de-cores/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.pixeljoint.com%2Ffiles%2Ficons%2Ffull%2Fheadchala3.gif

Aw, thanks, guys!

@Manupix- I see what you mean, but I kept the refracted light somewhat subtle so that the cloth underneath the effect would read more easily.  I tried a wider value range, but it started to look like there was something on the glove/symbol.  As for the folds, you're right, and I think it's probably obvious that I struggled with that section a lot 

Thanks for the crit!

I liked it alot more without the dithering but it still looks amazing!


user

Really great!  Although manupix does make some points.  But I just love how it looks almost like a classical paintings despite the DBZ subject.  Awesome, great idea.


user
Skoby (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/13/2014 06:47

Fantastic, I'm not a big dragonball fan but other than that it's brilliant


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/13/2014 05:48

Great still life =)

The light effects could use more contrast though. Glass balls focus light: the light spot should be much brighter and surrounded by darker shadow. Also the shadows in the lower right 'fabric' aren't dark enough for the volume and folds to be obvious.

The glove is awesome


user
usr_share (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/13/2014 05:28

Awesome :-)


user

According to PJ Specs, this has over 9000 colors. 

Great work. Another award winner, for sure!

Brilliant, I love the rendering of the fabrics and the way light interacts with the glass objects.
