Good morning, everyone!
I've finished a new chop and would appreciate to get some feedback on it, especially on whether it looks convincing to you... it's a self-portrait blended with a photo of a fighter pilot and I did it just for fun, it's not meant to participate in any contests ;)
Thanks in advance.

Looks like a good job to me so far, there's no high res so must guess here but it's always a good tip:
Create a new layer on top, select "sample all layers" take a small (2 or 3 pxl) soft blur brush (set the strength to 60 or so) and go over the edges of the parts you've added, this makes the blending look much better.

But so far great job, you added reflections on the helmet (transparent part), the angle of your face is good enough (might been a bit better but it's good), shadows look good. Maybe the colour of the face is a bit off, might need a bit saturation but that's hard to tell without seeing the hig res.

:-BD from me.

Thanks, robvdn... I'm posting a high resolution image this time so you can evaluate it again :)
As soon as I have time I will play with the saturation/levels of the neck so maybe it matches the colour of the face - it might be easier for me.
I'm not sure about blurring the edges of this particular image though, because the blending was actually done in the skin areas, not the edge of the mask :-?
More opinions welcome :)

In that case you do not have to do it ;)
