i do like the rhino, the problem i have is with the 'motion' shots of the dodgeballs... when you see actual photos with motion blur in them, there usually aren't several instances of the object moving because instead of multiple exposures, the camera's shutter stays open. if you were to animate the balls and then render them with motion blur, you might get a better effect...

neo, I get what you're saying but I really like this effect with this project, it seems to add to the cartoonish style. Makes the ball look in action, it just seems to work with this pretty well I think.

i think it would definitely work style-wise if this were part of an animation, but for still images it looks a little odd...

but then again that's just my opinion.
