Please attribute to Molasses on Cobalt.

Final Entry here



Love it! I wouldn't be surprised if this gets selected (and asked for a few additional details & adjustments).

Thanks, Nordenx.

Adjustments might include:
Making it look less like a pack of life savers and a giant stick of butter.
Adding texture.

Unfortunately, the more exciting parts of the loom are covered by the pirate. The other entries were much better organized in this respect.

Textures needed, definitely. Wood, textile & floor... and a bit more shadows & ambient occlusions (reflected light and atmospheric shadows & blurs).

The arrangement needs a bit of adjustment. :P It's really difficult to make maximized use of the limited amount of space around the pirate image, especially on the single pirate portrait. This is why I always use the cutout on a top layer and work around it (keeping in mind that other objects may block most of the left hand side; weapons & items held and pets on the bottom).

This is actually closed, yes? Personally, I'm disappointed not to see Phillite's final piece, I quite liked the sketches.

As far as Harlech's:
The details, especially in the loom, are wonderful, and it really is a shame they'd be covered up. I didn't think of butter, but I do feel a different palette would better suit the piece. They're a bit...distracting? I suppose.

I do love your linework.

Hey Apollo, am I safe to swap the categorys on the tag so it archives, or shall I wait until the results are posted?

I think it's probably worth waiting until the next set have been judged now, and just resetting for the October contest. :)

Next post will be the winners!
