for weekly challenge)
Looks cool to me.
wow, i'm the second
thanks you all again
now i want the first place
amazing! very good work.
Wow! This thing glows with its own lightsource. Great pic!
2Frost: well, you convinced me. Your variant looks a bit better
@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.
Fantastic one, got my vote!
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: img444.imageshack.us/img444/290/sun4edit.png
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)
Indeed, this is pretty awesome. I like how bright his head seems to be - nice job!
This is awesome! :D
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
The glow-effect is nicely done.
One thing that bothers me a bit is the slightly green tint in the bright yellow.
nice work, quite amazing
Great work! faved
thank you all:)
2TheoVision: may be you are right) i will try to do it and then I will see that will happen
Amazing, just amazing.
I'm loving the lighting and colors in this!
Wow, this looks great. Faved!
amazing, I luv it
This is just... a wonder! The octopus really looks very, very good! The shine is just great, man!
It's like the BBC did a nature special on the sun, and this is the image they came back with. Nicely rendered!
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.
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.
Nice one!! I like it!!
thank you, guys)
Ooh, this one is very nicely done
Looks great. I love the similarity between the tentacles and solar flares.
This is beautiful! I wish something like this actually existed... *dreamy*
Wow, love that texture
