I'd remove the drop shadows on the pieces above his left hand. Otherwise well done.

author says:

Thanks CMYK. I added a gradient mask to the shadows instead which lightened the shadows above his left hand because removing the shadows completely just did not look right to me.

CMYK46 says:

The sparks are a light source. There couldn't be cast shadows on them.

author says:

OK, I understand that but if I take the shadows away the bits no longer look like they are flying through the air. How do I make them appear to be flying through air without shadows?
Any tips will be greatly appreciated.

Motion blur comes to mind.

author says:

Of course. I should have thought of that. Thanks CMYK. I will try it and see how it looks.

IMHO step 3 is better then end result. Personally I do not like the added egg shells.

author says:

Thank you Rob. It's nice to hear from you. I will try the motion blur first as CMYK suggested and maybe add less egg shells but I like the added egg shells flying through the air. To me, step 3 looks like the egg head is exploding into glass instead of egg shell bits. The glass is just supposed to represent the sharp stabbing pain of the migraine.

author says:

I removed all shadows, repositioned some pieces and added zoom blur to some pieces. The zoom blur layers were blended on screen mode.
Hey Rob, now it looks more like step 3 except with added egg shells flying off the head.
Thanks for your help guys.

Well I read all your comments and to me this looks like it has a point to it, and looks well done. I like the fire the explosion effect and it marries well with that face.

author says:

Thanks Olga.

I saw the image and had to do it, I loved this ad when I was a kid.

This image is based on a Maxell ad called blown away I just used it for reference. I used a free set of brushes/textures

WOW!!!! THIS IS AWESOME!!!! You wouldn't happen to have maybe a step by step? Pretty please

author says:

@MnMCarta. Thank you!! Please bear with me and keep your eye on this entry. I will recreate the SBS in FULL soon. This is a really, really old entry from PST. (I rarely keep my SBS's beyond a few months as I have a smallish HDD and it gets clogged) I posted a few steps to keep in-line with the contest theme requirements. As it's you I'll do the image again with the full SBS.

avatar MnMCarta
MnMCarta says:

OH TY!!!!!! and can you detail the "how-to" as if I never used PS before? I remember a lot of buttons just the terminology kills me! I'm just a southern gal with a little vocab. LOL

Wow, really nice effect. I would love to say that you've got a sure winner here, but looking through the other submissions, you have a few others to contend with. Personally, I'd say if this doesn't win, it'll at least be in the top three. Great concept and just as great entry. High marks from me, good luck.

avatar gopankarichal

be original, please don't imitate or duplicate

avatar chaplain

I like this alot. Would recommend doing something with the rendered clouds in the bottom left. Kinda detracts from the overall coolness of the peice.

avatar LKY
LKY says:

wow......very cool effect + awesome use of brushes....Love this entry....but wats Gopan saying "be original" ??

avatar gopankarichal

Hi LKY, please go through all entries, you will understand why I said like that.

avatar OliviasArts

while it is a great image, i have to agree that its not original... there are atleast 2 others that did similar image with smoke bruches. still get a vote though as it is good work
