I'd remove the drop shadows on the pieces above his left hand. Otherwise well done.
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.
The sparks are a light source. There couldn't be cast shadows on them.
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.
ouch ouch ouch ouch ouch (great chop) ouch ouch ouch ouch
Motion blur comes to mind.
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.
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.
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.
Congerts SA. Really nice use of the source model and blending it in with the exploding egg.
Congrats Skyangel, it looks so real
Thank you very much everyone.

Thanks to Ahrum-Stock and Starlightspoint7 for their images :) (5 years and 1522 days ago)
Great Image! Looks sooo cool GL
wonderful choice of images and a very good idea -- lighting is well done and the chain through the sphere
Edited comment -- chain explained
Thank you guys Alan, i'm not sure what you mean, if you're referring to the chain that touches the largest sphere, my intention was to make it look like the chain was indented into the object. Maybe i'm just not looking closely enough.
I think you should intensify the light on his face to give a more dramatic touch. Very nice concept!
I can feel the pain!
OMG !!!! I absolutely LOVE this!!! Not cause it's my pic you used but what you did with it and how awesome it looks
