_A little while back I decided to give Rexy's SMS Set 7 a try since I had just gotten PSE 8. The model was provided by Evergreen and it was an open edit. The results just came up and I was like O_O I won. Woot!
There are two categories: Non-hair editing and Hair editing. I got first place for non-hair editing.
Below is the picture and comments. I know I have a long way to go to improve, but I feel like this picture is some of my best work, minus the flaws I need to work on.
_ Rexy: Wow LE!! I’m nothing short of captivated by your entry. It makes me think of dark magic…mystical secrets. The picture as a whole emits a very powerful, striking mood. It drew me in the second you submitted it. First of all, I absolutely love what you’ve done with Maria’s dress. She reminds me of a noble sorceress who’s out on an epic quest with her trusty steed. Speaking of which, I love the editing you’ve done on her horse as well. Despite all that, the lines around Maria’s body, and especially in her hair, are a bit sloppy and I see remnants of the original background. The same thing goes for the sky. It looks like you replaced the one in the original picture with the purple sky, and there are some bluish splotches. I’m not as concerned with the ones around the trees (because those are difficult to take care of), as I am with the splotches smack dab in the middle of the open sky. However, your picture has a beautiful color scheme and really tells a story without words. Congratulations on first place!!
Jake: I. Love. The. Dress. It was DEFINITELY awesome, and definitely an editing stride for you. Her bewb area is a little weird with the coloring, but the part you added is fantastic. I agree with Rexy, I LOVE the horse. Beautiful. And is that an Oblivion/Skyrim/Other game background I spy? Your editing was superb, but as pointed out by Rexy, there are white lines around some stuff and there are smudge marks on the bottom, where the rocks are, and that kind of distracted me. This was a very good picture
