Piranha plant in a tube

Link Thread Closed
I shot this picture out in my garden and decided to do some kind of SMB reference. Kieran told me to post the picture here (I go to class with him)

SUPER HI-RESS for wallpapers

I giveth ye two and a half thumbs up.
This looks pretty damn cool. How did you make it? photoshop I pressume.

This is amazingly awesome. New wallpaper fershure

Epic,what tool used for that image??
Simply did it with Photoshop. Found a picture of the piranha plant on the internet and sized it up a lot, then pasted it in and made a cut out of the part of the pipe that covers the bottom of the plant and put it on "top" of the plant layer. Also did a black gradient on the plant to give it some shade. The picture I took myself :)
Very nice 16-bit/reality mix going on here. I don't know why, but this picture really reminds me of the Piranha Jungle level from Yoshi's Story.

If you plan on doing another shot like this (and you should because you're quite talented), take a picture of a plain stretch of highway and photoshop in the Mario Kart 64 characters racing down it.
Very clever!
Your layout has been removed.
Very good! Besides being in 3D, it looks a digital photo. Congratulations!

i just lurk sometimes

win! i put it as background image :P

I might put some sort of signature here once. I guess.
Beautiful art!Congratulations!
So is he going to threaten you with a knife if you don't sticky this?

Very cool idea, actually. I am impressed.
(And I never would've seen this if you didn't death threat Kieran either, since I never check the Art forum.)

SMWHacking? I rest my case.
SMWCentral? I leave it to rest.

Okay, this picture is pretty cute. Imagine day you're in your garden, and then suddenly a 16-bit Piranha Plant grows out of the dirt. Adorable :D

EDIT: JELLO you fucking ninja, I'm supposed to be the ninja!
Man, I just came everywhere. This is hot.

-hands you some towels- Never knew it had that much of an effect on you, good sir.
Hate to put a damper on everyone's mood, but this kind of art is hardly new. For example, this, this, and this are all examples I found under a single guy on dA, and they show considerably more effort than this ten-minute photoshop job. Here is one I made in under 10 minutes.

(It doesn't use the sheer effect, but meh. I think that makes it look too flat.)
