The drop shadow makes it look like the dinosaur is standing in front of a picture of a hill...

avatar Drivenslush

An easy way to make a shadow for a creature INSIDE a picture is to duplicate the image you want to shadow, then choose the UNDER layer and darken it to black with lightness (under saturation and hue) then use DISTORT (center manipulation square top edge) and pull the black image into the photo and shape where you want the shadow. Once placed use a blur filter (I use Gaussian) and then use opacity to get the right look. Takes some practice, and pay attention where shadows fall in the image so you can get it to match right... Just one way of doing it... (IMHO of course).. good luck author

Beware the Snark - created by IDt8r

Beware the Snark
Favs: 12SBS: 4Hi-resRank: 1/6Score: 70.1% (41)9523 views

Arrogantus Pretentious, or the more common name, the Snark, is a parasitical animal that attaches itself to people at birth. Using their sharp, little claws to hook into its host, its growth is dependant on cruel, thoughtless or careless comments uttered by said host. The Snark believes it is an expert on everything and considers common decency to be a sign of weakness. Very often, the Snark will defend itself by indignantly protesting that its comments are made in jest, are unvarnished truth or meant to be instructive. Although one can never completely rid oneself of the little pest, one can reduce its size significantly with kind words, tactful comments and a willingness to apologize.

I don't know if its the change in the weather, the start of school or my neighbor's constantly yapping little dog (ban pit bulls? They should ban any dog under 3 pounds in weight!), but my personal Snark MUST go on a diet before my family bans me to the garage. This has not been one of my finer weeks.

avatar jordyponce

Nice it!!...

author says:

Slushy, don't let its looks fool you! It looks harmless enough, but that just allows it to dig its claws in deeper. And then, before you know it, you're snarking at someone and then THEIR snark gets going and before you can say "Facial hair looks good on you. Too bad you're not a man." Wham! You're in the middle of a fight.

I've been trying to starve my snark all week, but I don't think I'm succeeding.

LOL! They still look too green to pick...Great image!

avatar aheman
aheman says:

agree with MossyB, make some red ones for picking... and "booom!"

but seriously, change the sky to real sky and make better 'shadow-n-light' of the grenades

author says:

Aheman, check the source photo...that IS the real sky. And if you check the source pics of the grenades you'll see there's plenty of light & shadow added. Enough for me, anyway.

author says:

@Deki, yep, took some liberties THANKS!

avatar woodztockr

Top notch idea and finds on the source... this is superior thinking and application... great job author!

Is the reflection line too crisp or I'm a blabbering nub... lol... cheers author! My eye was just drawn to the side, left of the bears, I'm not good at this maybe someone else... can help ;o) I'm just drawn to that line to the left of the bears... other than that... this is the bomb!

Great job!

author says:

@woodztockr, well I did blur and burn the reflection line a bit, (it was MUCH sharper before, but I kinda like that sharp edging (thanks Buddy)

avatar aheman
aheman says:

cuteness aside... you need to:

1) make the bears more white
2) the slate of ice, it is best you clone from the surrounding ice

just some suggestions, cutey you... ahem... I mean the bears

Enjoyed this quite a bit; however it proved extremely challenging and almost beyond what I have taught myself in photoshop. I kept with it.

Please comment to let me know what you think!

Thanks (5 years and 2679 days ago)

I like your concept, however the main part of the jar appears to have no thickness. If you could move the images 'inside' up from the bottom and in from the sides to give the glass more dimension, it'll be more believable that these are in the jar. I'll wait to vote - GL!

edit: yes, that's lots better! now, if you can move the image inside to the right a tiny bit to make the glass thickness a little more even, and bring up the opacity on the sides like you have the bottom of the jar, that will be a huge improvement!

avatar wazowski
wazowski says:

Apart from what pearlie said, I think it will help too if you remove the dropshadow. Right now the shadow makes it flat. Good luck!

author says:

Thanks pearlie I went back and brought the image in so that it gives the glass more dimension. I also added a few filters to give it a distorted look like real glass does.

wazowski that you so much I also removed the dropshadow and I think it looks better!

I love comments since I may think something is done only to find out I may have missed something small. Helps me get better. I appreciate it.

EDIT: Brought the inside image to the right a bit and raised the opasity just a tad. Thanks again pearlie
