I don't know why the silhouettes are blurry, in photoshop they look ok

What was the size and resolution (pixels per inch) of the PSD?
What was the final size of the image submitted (MB)?

author says:

It was the same size, it's pretty small, I started somewhere 1024x768 and crop to 867x651. Only 200kb has the file.

I noticed that when I'm a little zoomed in on the picture in PS, it also looks blurred, but when I zoom out it's ok.

Maybe I will redo the entire image at a bigger resolution

The problem is resolution. I always work at 200 pxls per inch (sometimes larger). Canvas size 10 X 12 inches minimum size, (most always larger).

I rescale the JPEG usually never less than 100 pxls per inch and reduce the size (dimensions) until I get as close to the maximum 5MB size allowed for submissions. Always make the final size as close to the 5MB max as possible.

In Photoshop edges get softer when they are enlarged so working larger, even with type sizes, will help keep sharp edges sharper in the final JPEG submitted. Vector images as in Illustrator remain sharp at any size but Photoshop uses pixels and the more pixels the sharper the image.

nice job

He's WONDERFUL.. I wanna play fetch with him..hehehe... but I'll let my brother retrieve the ball from him LOL

this could be just me..but is there a way to blur the stroke line around him.. it's okay.. but it does make him look cartoonie.. or that could be your goal.. he's just so wonderful, that the line makes him look like an animation.. if that was your goal, then ignore me.. but it would be cool to see what would happen if you soften the sharpness of that stroke line

YES!!! the soften lines makes it more real, (it's the price you pay for HIGH RES.. hehehe. .I probably wouldn't have noticed in regular res, but in high res you can see everything) good job author

author says:

thanks golem. i softened the stroke line a bit.. i suppose this is what u wanted to see. or is it something else?? i like the softened one better.. thanks for the tip..

Great job drawing him! What's he standing on...wouldn't there be footprints? Blur the shadow a bit, otherwise it's lookin' good.

the dinosaur should be brighter on the side facing the moon, gl

author says:

thanks a lot CMYK. will work on gettin the footprints right away.. @Kid: i haven't shown his body which faces the moon.. from watchin jurassic park movies, i had observed that the dino skin were a bit 'shiny' at places.. i wanted the moon light on the earth surface to be bright, hence u can see a bit bright sky, see features on the ground and the body of the dino. The bright ambience also makes the shadow not thick black.. hope i am right on this..

author says:

edit: added some footprints, blurred the shadow and added some dust near the foot.. hope it is better now.. @Nator: I tried using the green skinned dino.. but i did not feel satisfied on blending it with the environment. So i went for the brown-black dino..

very nice

zatrix says:

nice work... If it's water he's treading on - there's gotta be ripples on the surface, if it's fog - there have to be twirls, i think.

author says:

@zatrix: he is walkin on a bit sandy solid ground.. the shiny pat of the ground are certain shiny sand crystals and the dust is sand dust due to his heavy walk

Nice work - but that cloud over the moon looks like it could do with a touch up..
