love this.. the only thing I would do different ( now all the hard work has been done) is blend the bottom edge of the stand with the sea bottom.. eg: if it was sitting on the floor you would not see a clean bottom line with little blades of grass . But it is a very minor thing to maybe keep in mind for next time.

example here to what I mean

this would look better if you removed the headlights nearest the door..

Nice image, but I agree with cmyk46. The headlights look like it's on the side of the bus along with the doors. Really supposed to be the same angle as the tires.

You've done a great job improving your entry! Listening to helpful advice from these good members will make you a better artist. No matter what the outcome of the contest you should be proud of what you've done and your willingness to accept advice has earned you my respect.

Your corners are still too sharp on the 'cups' using the ellipse will create the correct shape, also the dark line at the top of the cup would also have a slight curve - following spacerangers advice regarding eye levels. Lastly take some time to clone out the repeating patterns you have on all the cups. (make the two front different to the one at the back)

cool! now take the farthest cup reflection, and erase gradually. getting heavier with the eraser as you get closer to it. This one in the back would be less prominent then the others. Also gently erase the reflection where the bottoms meet the existing cup. I would say about same distance as your shadow.

Author, the balloon is still completely flat with no shading. It needs to look spherical.

you know what would be nice...is if you,
duplicated the cups
flipped vertically
Gaussian blur about 40%
drop opacity to 30%.
then you would have a nice reflective surface coming from your tiled counter. look sharp!

You always have to think..."where is my light source?" even when collecting stock photos to use. I have turned down fantastic stock photos simple because the light source did not match with the piece I was working on. If you don't think where your shadows are CMYK46 will be the first to let you know! lol isn't that right Bob? :P
He does know what he is talking about.

The perspective is off. The cups in the foreground would be much rounder top and bottom and you would see into the cups at the tops since they are below eye level.

I don't see them, and you've created conflicting light sources by flipping the cup at right. The light on the others is from the left.

Yep gotta agree with everyone above. Nice thinking with the source image. I like that you think a bit outside the box. Chalty has a good point about the perspective.

Not sure what effect your going for, but I would like to see the ground transformed with the perspective tool. The cracks should look smaller the further they get from your eye. Good Luck!

I think that is very creative. Yes, it would look nice a little dirty, but with the refelctive surface it reminds me more about the cups.

I think the image is kinda empty... a lot of unused space in a particulair color that drags a lot of attention to it when theres nothing to see really.. The little creature is cute tho

The reflection should show the underside of the object, not just the front flipped. This takes away any suggestion that the object is 3-dimensional, as it looks like a flat surface being reflected...

a gentle warp on the tattoo (just to curve it to the body) would really help.. (IMHO) just to add to the realism.. very funny idea
