Originally I changed the spots on ladybugs, but eventually decided to leave them like they are.
Hope you like. =) (5 years and 1863 days ago)

Maybe give it more light, the vignette makes it very dark...

author says:

Nah, when I brighten it it looks to contrasted, and when I remove the vignette, it looks bad... I'll brighten it just a liiiiittle bit cause you're right about it being to dark =)
EDIT: Done. did +20 to the brightness, and it looks OK to me now. =)

Nice work! But a suggestion: instead of using a new layer filled with pure black, try to use, on this new layer, a very large soft black brush with 10% opacity, applying half of its diameter, or less, around the image border until you get satisfied with the result. You can always use the eraser tool with the same settings. It'll give you more control on your work and it'll look more natural Good luck!

author says:

Thanks Divair! I'll make sure to try it out with this image and update it if needed. =)

Great message and nicely done. I like that you took the time to make them different sizes etc.

author says:

Thanks. =) I also changed the spots on each one at first, but then I decided to leave them all the same, since it kinda fits the title even better. =) Tho, maybe I should've changed the spots on the blue one....? Nah, nevermind =)

Very nice idea,lighting is very good,maybe to make upper right corner a bit lighter because is closer to the central bug then lower left,and u have the same lighting on both sides...Beside that very nice final result...good luck author

author says:

Nah, I actually like the kinda 'asymetry' of the lighting compared to the blue bug.... The bug is already in the centre of attention.

The vignette was done well and I think it puts more focus on the blue one. Well done and good luck.

Thanks. =)
