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.

When you have problems to solve, it can sometimes give you a headache.

I have never tried to do anything like this so it was certainly a learning experience. The wonders of this site, making us try something totally different.

Thanks to dead-stock at DeviantArt for the face.
Thanks to pj_vanf at Flickr for the apple.
Thanks to asmozz at DeviantArt for the background. (5 years and 1208 days ago)

AWWWWWWWW, IMHO you should have retained the Fissured Tongue... it would have added so much to the creation.. again IMHO.. (I had a very close relative with fissured tongue, and anytime I see it in anyone else I get a bit gooey.. LOL.. good luck and good job

author says:

My focus was on keeping the eyes in the one slither, unfortunately the tongue couldn't be.

author says:

Similar concept, thanks for pointing that out. I'm sure most entries here will have had similar things done in the past. I don't frequent Worth1000 so I hadn't seen that.
