Aleksei, thanks! I've just noticed your entry, like how you managed to combine two elements in one little jar Although I didn't get "going for the gold" sentence, you mean for the golden colors?) I'm slow in the mornings before coffee


D-Artist, nice entry!


And umm, I think I've missed something, are mini-challenges judged with voting and not with the judges?

no, I meant going for the Gold in main Battle Royale matches, as if being busy with the big battle and not having time for the small skirmishes. Where did you get time to do this one? I barely had few hours I could fit in. So I feel, I didn't do a good job, :P
And yes, D-Artist, very nice entry indeed!
I think, level of the battle Royale is drastically going up, which is good. But it's getting tougher and tougher to win!

Aleksei, you are too modest, you did a good job in those few hours.


At first I thought that I will definately miss this one, but yesterday I decided to give it a try and came up with this entry. It was made in 4,5 hours, I fell asleep late at night and now my eyes hurt so much (


But it was really fun to work on and was worth a try )

Very nice for 4,5 hours, I need to work more with Photoshop, definitely, How did you developed your paintery style? Do you create book illustrations or something like that? I am nterested to know, how did you started and how did you reach this level? If that is not a secret of course,

Aleksei, thanks! I actually developed this style in BR, cause I usually don't do such photo manipulations for work. But I work as freelance illustrator, so I guess it helped somehow, cause lots of practice is the main secret in this business )
