I had to flatten more layers than I'd have liked to get this under the 20MB limit.

Hmm, right brain in overdrive.

I pasted a quote here but it has totally disappeared. Coleridge.
In Xanadu did Kubla KhanA stately pleasure-dome decree :Where Alph, the sacred river, ranThrough caverns measureless to manDown to a sunless sea. In Xanadu did Kubla KhanA stately pleasure-dome decree :Where Alph, the sacred river, ranThrough caverns measureless to manDown to a sunless sea.

Perhaps istock doesn't like poetry.

I've been looking up Coleridge to find some rants against istock but my best guess is still 'Water, water everywhere'


The blows have made me think about lighting effects and how I ought to be more adventurous - and go back to the Tutorials. Big switch Christina, gives change of scale for Mark to incorporate in the next blow. That threw me more than anything else in responding to a blow - the scale at which figures came to me.

One of my favorites, Christina. I'm watching, have no idea where this is going but can't wait to see what Mark is going to blow up in this shot! Real nice twist!

I'll try my hardest not to blow anything up. I can't promise there won't be an alien though.

Something cookin', Mark?

Something is indeed cooking. In fact, it's probably the third attempt for this round.  Unfortunately I'm unable to post in the forums when i'm at work or using my phone, so I can only get in here from home.


I will of course post once something resembling a finished image appears

A battle is quite demanding really, especially for people who don't do this sort of thing for a living.

I find the first two blows come quite easily, and then I run out of steam a bit. My current image keeps changing shape and won't settle on one thing, hence the slower reply.


By the way, pretty sweet seeing our images in the Top Rated Designs column!
