    I can't help but feel some of the proportions are off, or maybe it's just those teeth in the background that are distracting....EH..I'm being picky, because this is an AWESOME piece, good work!

    What's going on with the ratings? A lot of previous 5 stars now have 4 and this one 2! I have never voted before because I totaly agreed with more or less all of the ratings. I'm sure this is some kind of bug. If not a serious crime has been commited against the captain.
    5 stars easy.

    Well done! I would say can be a winner compared to the images currently displayed there.
    A minor thing: the smoke on the right side can be more subtle in my opinion.

    cart, thanks man. I have no idea how the stars work exactly, happy to get any!

    mik1190, thanks, it was tough changing the levels around, hard to know where to stop.

    This is really wonderful work! Congratulation!! I would suggest you to work a bit more on post production on it. I mean for me looks a bit too clear everywhere, I would do some post pro- rust, dust, dark sports somewhere.. the same time keeping this realism on human.

    5*stars for the Gallery!
    Goog luck

    dont know how you did it but the hair looks incredible, the best rendering of hair I have seen made with Blender by far. The image is great too

    Is this cycles ? How much time it took you to render ?

    Thanks guys.

    kilon, thanks, I spent some time on the hair, it has pretty high segments, like 18?, and it's combed around a modeled cone. This render took about 40 hours, mostly due to the volumetrics and low light. The Work in Progress thread is here. And yes , cycles.

    Wow, this looks really great Photox.
    I think you really nailed the materials, especailly the ocotopus tentacles, they look really superb.
    My only critique would be that the cigarette sticking out of the lips looks a little wierd, I think the lips need to be more opened there.
    But besides that it is great.
    Good luck.

    Carel, thannks, really enjoyed watching your entry too.

    mickeyjoe, thanks and yes the lips should be separated just a little bit more. What we need is a sculpt brush that acts like proportional edit, connected mode. I know you can mask, but it's tricky in areas that wrap around like that.

    You have become quite adept at material creation for sure, the only reservation is that the glossiness of the tentacles could use a bit of tweaking (along with some SSS and glossiness tweaks for the women's face).

    Also, it's very unique for steampunk, this alone should make it a contender for the top spots.
