Very nicely done gents!

I really like the earth tone blanket of the top picture, it feels very authentic.

And the bottom pic including mud on the feet and the snow effect really makes the figure come to life that hes trying to stay warm in that cloak. Makes that poor pakiderm feel really out of place and to realize why they did not get to their destination.

nice work to both.

I really had to look hard at these two entries. I went back and forth, back and forth. Then I logged off and slept on it.

That close! In the end, the deep red blanket with the square gold decoration and the snow on the top decided me. A big congrats to both contestants.

Wow, Mr.Andrea! Super job on the snow! How did you made it? That was the gamechanger for me as well as the shading on the elephant. But both entries are really nice. Congrats also to Mr.X!
