Good image, shadows under the blanket & saddle will make it better.

author says:

You're right. I had some but they didn't show up well in the final version. It's like they disappeared. Maybe I clicked when I shoulda clacked and turned them off by accident. I made them darker, even darker than before. Thanks for the tip.

author says:

Updated SBS to show shadow changes. Added scarf to monkey.

Lots of intricate detail work has gone into this. Well done.

author says:

TY SA. It looked so ordinary on the beach and was considering changing backgrounds. However some smushed in some clouds and messing with colors gave it a nice dreamy look. Wanted to put them on a horse track racing horses but could not find a suitable pic on a dirt track.

The guy on the right was smoothed out with a technique called "Frequency Separation". The cracks under the mail sign were made using his eye wrinkles. Letters for mail sign were copy/pasted from the "mail sign" source image and rearranged. (4 years and 337 days ago)

Nice work. Just put a 1 pixel blur on the sharp edges, and include a link for the hand.

author says:

what do you mean by "sharp edges"? specifically where?

This is an interesting interpretation on the contest theme. I like where you are going with this.

In MHO i think you could fix the shadows where the hand makes contact with the letter and where the letter is entering that slot. Maybe the tone/density of the shadow around those points might help. Just seems a little flat at the afore mentioned places. Pretty cool though.

author says:

Thanks man. I will try.

Also, nice lighting even if is coming from everywhere. lol

avatar CMYK46
CMYK46 says:

All edges, but especially the face. The lighting looks consistent to me.

author says:

Sounds interesting. Let me see if I am understanding you. Select the man. Select > Modify > Contract by "X" Pixels. Select > Inverse. Now I will have the outer edge of the man selected. Then apply a 1 Pixel Gaussian Blur? If this is correct, how many pixels should be selected around the edge? Can this be done faster by Select > Modify > Border?

CMYK46 says:

First of all, the default setting on my lasso or pen tool is always set to a one pixel blur so I don't have sharp edges to mess with later. But all I'd do is select the outside of the face, expand 1 pixel, and then Select/modify/feather 1 pixel and clear.

author says:

A one pixel "feather"? Got ya. was confused by the term "blur".

author says:

Something wrong with my Photoshop. Think I have to re-install.

avatar skyangel
skyangel says:

Well done. The only thing I would get rid of is the highlight on the bottom lip. It would be in shadow with the arm coming out of the mouth.

author says:

Thanks SA. Good suggestions.

author says:

Now this is weird. The colors get messed up in anything I open in Photoshop. I tried to edit my entry's Photoshop file and the colors and lighting are weird. Even if I save the file in PS, and try to view it in another programs, the colors are weird. It's like PS changes them once it gets opened. I tried a hard reset with Ctrl+Alt+Shift to reset Photoshop and it didn't work.

I made a printscreen with PS on the left and the same exact image opened in MSPaint. See how different they are? It should look like the one on the right which is much more vivid. Both of these were copy/pasted from the hi-res version of my entry.

these are my color settings which really shouldnt matter https://i.imgur.com/RfJTF55.jpg

author says:

I have no idea what was wrong with my PS but it seems back to normal. Tried resetting PS and rebooting my computer and nothing worked. Woke up this morning and all is fine. Weird.

Anyways, I think I did everything you all suggested. Took out that lip highlight, reworked the shadows on the thumb and letter, and smoothed out the hard edges. Here is the old ver. for reference. Thanks for the help everyone!!

Good grief, this is top notch. Love the message, and the photoshop work is sublime. Thank you for describing the process, it is good for newbies to learn.

author says:

Thank brother or sister still. I made two versions and here is the other. I made a disclaimer in a post below about the bad guy that is in this image. It was taken care of in the final version.

Thank you thank you. It was hard to choose between the two versions. (see my post a few posts below for the other version)

Congrats on your win, you are some artist!

author says:

Haha. I struggle with almost every Photoshop I do here.

author says:

This was another version. It was so hard to choose which one. This one with the woman is mostly done but doesn't have the finishing touches.

I worked on this Photoshop for a couple days before I realized Hitler was on the stamps. OMG!! I liked the way the letter looked so that's why I had to use a separate stamp source for the final version to cover him up. I just wanted to show this other version, so please don't be offended that he is still on this stamp as I had not yet noticed.

I like the mail box one the best out of your two versions.

She looks really evil. I think you could soften the border of the hair a little bit.

Dreams can be strange. Sometimes things make no sense but amaze you none the less. Animals talk, you walk on the sky, and even light may not cast any shadow! (Added for those who may notice no shadows in this entry! :D) Anything goes in a creative dream. (5 years and 2188 days ago)
