Nope. This is a digital mash up of elements at best. At worst (the actual), it's a bumbling deceit of seriously bad composited parts: the 3D model with some laughable attempt to add... what... your personal creative expression? Sure, I would be fine with that, if you generally stated that was your intention. But no.

. Over and over again. You cannot even fall back on a double down lie and claim you meant to say it was all digital. Hence the above quote, plus all the responses you have made in the threads I happened to scroll down. If I go back further, I assume it's more of the same lie upon lie.
