I like the idea but I think the two elements used could be made to look a lot more natural. Just a bit more blending and colour matching.

I saw the wonderful textures in the source and naturally thought of dragon skin and shiny horns! So I spent hours turning the source into this guy!!! (5 years and 2302 days ago)

Your dragon has some nice work, but what I really like is how you integrated it into the background sources - nice lighting effects.

Thanks to connalee for source.

**updated**

"Flat white" look of eyeballs modified: New layer added, eye whites painted with deep rose squiggly lines to create shadows/veins, Gaussian blur added, color balance adjusted to add overall yellow and red to eye whites. (5 years and 2437 days ago)

Nice effect, but a little soft for a Dragan photo IMO

avatar MossyB
MossyB says:

Good texture on the facial skin, but the whites of the eyes are too bright and look painted. Eyes are never "pure" solid white, they are always a bit off-white, because they have veins and arteries running through them.

A bit "over vibrant," for a Dragan.

avatar Drivenslush

hehehe. .the original photo is SO CHEESY AND AWFUL (Something you'd find in the back sections of a BlueBoy Magazine of the 80's (SHE BOP))... and you author, made it into a work of ART.. VERY IMPRESSED.. LOL.. (extra points for the conversion, oy the original is so BLAH, (the Model is wonderful though, and I know what the original photographer was looking for.. cute boy.. what a miss LOL)

author says:

Thanks, MossyB - great point about the eyes - made some modifications.

author says:

LOL!! Thank you, Drivenslush. I think it was that cheesiness that drew me to the image.
