Who ya gonna call? by sstarkm Who ya gonna call? by sstarkm
Ugh, finally done with this :P

The ultimate monster, the Stay Puft man. Is he a demonic God set unto Earth to wreak havoc, or just some dumbass monster who got dragged along by Gozer? Who the hell knows. All I know is that he's awesome.

My first matte painting ever. Matte Paintings are a combo of real life imagery with paint (or pixels). The photo was done by wwarby from Flickr, and if I knew how to contact Mr. wwarby, I'd let him know about this.

Now go have a happy Halloween y'all!

EDIT: Did a few minor and major edits.

I know: He IS Gozer.

Gozer given form, come to lay waste to the world.

Awesome picture, BTW. Really great!

Pretty cool photo manipulation (or digital composition). You have some of the glow of the building in the marshmallow man but he is very blue and the photo is very yellow. I wouldn't recommend just turning the whole thing orange on that layer, but I would make an orange gradient ONLY on the Stay-Puft man (after using Wand or Lasso Tools) and then apply it going to transparency and set that layer to Overlay and then mess around with the Opacity. Did you get that?

The vehicles in the foreground combine well (because they look like they belong) but the fire and lightning are a little too bright and don't match in values to the rest of the piece.

"did you get that?"

Lol, not really. I'm confused on which part of the man you're pointing to.

Personally, I believe the fire looks alright, but I agree with you on the lightning somewhat. The lightning itself isn't the problem, it's the fact that the buildings act as if it's not there.

/ic/ has critiqued this before, I just haven't really gotten to it.

Oh, if you already know the errors then I guess it's a bit redundant.

The whole man, really. Like, he's too bright. And blue. Nothing else in the picture is that uber-white.

True, I admit he's too bright. I think it's actually because my original plan was to have some sort of giant lamplights (ala Bat-signal) shining upon him. I think I never got to adding those in and forgot he was so damn bright. I'll fix it later though.

Well, the game was practically the third movie, I'd go check that out. It's really fun.

Crossing fingers for hope that there won't be a remake.
