You can stop the wheel by clicking on it.

To be honest, I expected another outcome, though I can't tell you what I find odd about it. Maybe it's the multiple limbs action. But I spent too much time on this one as not to submit it :meow: As you can see, it's a homage to the Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci, put into a steampunk setting.

I had to submit it to the Flash section, although I consider it more a photo manipulation.

Once the image loaded it clearly impacted me in a great way, Da Vinci is one of my personal favorites when it comes to artwork and yet this image just as the orignal version from Da Vinci strike a strong cord within my core. The models shading and facial expression reminds me somewhat to a pin up model of some sort yet her attire comes to me as a female version of "The Rocketeer". The wheel in the background with the runes is a great addition, I clearly don't see what you can consider odd of this piece of work, I personally believe you should consider working on more art like this, though as you said it's considered more a photo manip' but I'm looking forward to see more of your work. Great Job!

I like this. I would like to add a few observational comments, though which maybe is part of why you say you see an oddity to it.

The image takes on both a 2d and 3d effect. one side you can see the lighter hands on the right tend to get to the 3d side while the left side looks flatter. Thus the overall image becomes somewhat of a "cutout". The shadow effect is on the girl also, but not on the frame around her against the wheel nor does the wheel have more dimension to the outer rim.

What might be interesting considering the steampunk theme would be to make the wheel have cogs and powered by something Da Vinci-like for his machines. He is probably my favorite artist and more because his inventive ideas over his paintings (though also great).

I like vintage photo style and that would be nice to see along the frame and outer border along with maybe more parchment writing or something to go along with your rune type markings.

I don't mean this in anyway as being negative, and I am sure it's been much work into it. I think the idea works, and I like the images you chose. I'd just like to share a suggestive idea and maybe see the additional vintage and steampunk filled out further and maintain the dimensionality it can create in the layering effects, but not necessarily needing to be overly busy.

I'm off to see more of your work now, as you caught my eye of interest.
