Very creative and curious idea.

avatar DanLundberg

Very creative, but the butterflies/moths look flat, not three-dimensional. Some Burn Tool on the bodies and refinement of the shadows falling on the background (different parts of the moth would be different distances from the background and thus would cast a slightly different shadow) would help. A stick pin through each moth might add to the realism.

Hi, everyone!┬ĘThanks for the comments!

@ DanLundberg

I didn't want to touch the original texture much but, you're right, some things should be improved. I uploaded it and decided to see what the others would have to say . I appreciate your suggestions and, yes, burn tool just might be the best solution for the "fake" inner shadows. i will try to improve that part!

And as for the pins- sorry, i just couldn't! ))) I made the pins and in the end decided not to use them, I couldn't stab the poor creatures!

thanks, erathion!

I made some changes! DanLundberg, thanks again for the suggestions- burn tool really did do the trick (I don't think I use it nearly as often as I should ). I did my best to achieve a more 3D effect and I think it looks better. I also used both burn and dodge tool to add the same effect to the frame. Then i added some smudges to the background and to the tags- i thought it should be older!

Anyway, I appreciate your inputs! Thanks!

i like it !!!!

I think there's some more depth now. BTW if you create a selection beforehand, that constrains where your burning occurs so you can easily get hard lines between burned and unburned areas..
