Ilu is correct, we can only accept the peice if the glowing effects are removed.
To be clear I think this is a very nice piece and the effects are nicely done.
But if we allow airbrush, then we have to decide how much airbrush is too much. People will complain we are moderating according to taste or, worse, playing favorites. So as long as the no airbrush rule (#5) is on the books, we have to enforce it.
I look forward to this piece (without the glows) being added :)
These all look fantastic the only thing is those smooth gradients behind the halo and girls weapon need to be removed. Smooth gradients are not allowed in submissions for the gallery. If you would like your piece to be considered for the gallery, please revise your submission.
