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.

Thanks Olga.

I also used some metal texture brushes from https://www.brusheezy.com/brushes/57221-free-metal-photoshop-brushes. Wood source, filtered with radial blur and used as an overlay under the spark layers. https://pixabay.com/en/oak-tree-slice-old-round-nature-18557/ (1 year and 26 days ago)

Steam punk indeed showing the old with the new and the colours are very Victorian....antiqued. I like the power of this upload, it is crisp and clearly seen. Nice work.

1. Prepared all the images i used by cutting out only the parts i need.
2. Created the a semi realistic explosion using a Tutvid tutorial as a guide line (source url 4).
3. Arranged all the elements in there end size and position.
4. Added shadows and motion bluer to the platoon and the explosion victims by using copies of the layers.
5. Used adjustment layers (Hue/Saturation, Levels, Exposure) to blend the segments together.
6. Added Orange - transparent - orange & rendered some clouds ( all to about 18-25% opacity) to make the image look a bit more realistic.

Thank you all at sxc.hu for providing grate stock images

Edit: Added SBS Guide. Hope you like it.

Edit2: Decided to redo explosion

Please comment. I like to see what you think. Good or Bad, I like to hear it all :) (5 years and 857 days ago)
