    This is the first video entry I've seen.  Well done.  I like the ambiguity of it all.

    (62) Irregular Orbit : Attack of the Extraterrestrial Medusozoans!

    Digital art & photo by VoxPopuli


    Note: no space backdrop was used in this piece. The background, and all refracted light, is from the aquarium environment with its dark blue shadings and the "stars" were real-life aquatic flecks of some sort. The geography of the PS planet is actually the digitally manipulated elements of another species of jellyfish and surrounding water.

    I like all of these, but 'Irregular orbit' is my favourite (so far).  I'm impressed by the way you created the planet.

    Thank you for your comments and welcome back after a few days away :)


    The planet was created using the following tutorial (and the texture I mentioned was manip'ed using the features of another species of jellyfish):

    If interested, it was also the tut I used for my artsy map contest entry and at the following link I show the layers of the planet I made in the original elements spoiler:


    http://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?/topic/30149-artsy-mapping-contest/page-6#entry294323


    There are a number of very interesting Photoshop planet and space tutorials that I want to try. The linked tutorial is the one I used probably because it was the first I clicked on and it seemed easy enough to follow. :p

    (24) Rebirth : It lives! The nefarious Dr. Shimura sets off an atomic reaction beneath a Japanese lake and revives the legendary monster of mass destruction.

    Note: the name of Dr. Shimura was chosen as a tribute to one of my favorite Japanese actors, Takashi Shimura (a great actor, who not only starred in Godzilla and other monster movies, but was a Kurosawa favorite and was featured in Ikiru, Rashomon and Seven Samurai).

    With the way my scroller was placed, I read the "Hell in Hello" line before seeing the picture.  This was one of those moments when it was a genuine 'laugh out loud'.  So funny.

    I have never been a cat person.  I can now justify that preference, thanks to you.  How useful!

    Lol, I'm not a cat-person either, but when my son moved to a place that did not accept cats I inherited his!


    So I'm not a cat-person who has had a cat now for 16 years.


    Hmm, I wonder what the motivation is for my Mecha Hello Kittyzilla series? [scratches head] :)

    (11) 33 1/3 : The GOOD new is that Mecha Hello Kittyzilla (a.k.a. Mecha Maneki-Neko) destroyed only 1/3 of San Francisco, the BAD news is that ... --> [note: to see the bad news please check out spoiler since it contains references to the new Godzilla and Planet of the Apes movies and if you have not seen them you may not wish to check out spoiler, even if my "spoils" are inaccurate]*


    The Rampage of MechaHelloKittyZilla : Scene III


    The third in an infrequent series involving this creature of lore. (WIP)

    Original photo and potential movie spoilers by VoxPopuli in spoiler:

    The GOOD new is that Mecha Hello Kittyzilla (a.k.a. Mecha Maneki-Neko) destroyed only 1/3 of San Francisco, the BAD news is THAT IT DESTROYED 1/3 of San Francisco!!!. The additional BAD news it that Godzilla destroyed another 1/3 of San Francisco and Caesar and his Apes destroyed an additional 1/3 of San Francisco, thus the score:


    Monsters: 3


    San Francisco: 0
