I, as a woman, thank you for the message. But I have to agree with pingenvy about the note stuck in the chain. It looks a bit fake, needs some real text. And you could fill man's back - just under the collar - because it's cut on the original image.

Great message. I'm not too sure about the paper on the floor. Some actual text, even illegible might work better for that and the paper is transparent. Great idea and good luck!

Great work, author. IMHO you should have left more of the factory background visible since as it is now the character doesn't fit well in the rest of the scene.

Scale problems: Leaves are too big, cat is too big. Woman figure has white outlines that could be easily removed by selecting the figure, contracting 1 pixel & deleting. Good concept that could benefit with some tweaks...GL author.

Impressive amount of work and love the results. Nisha is right ... the mood is wonderful!
I do think that the arches/pillars could use bit of clean up ... there are tiny bits of the original image showing when viewed in high res and the edges could be improved.

As the stone in the arches and pillars are old, the edges would have pits, dents and cracks that would show when viewed in profile. If you use a layer mask you can "push" the mask in with the smudge tool in places like where the round stones meet each other (there would be a slight indent). Roughening the edge and taking away that straight-edge mask look would really help. Let me know if this doesn't make sense and I can try and explain better.

EDIT: Changes look good.

Fantastic work on a box author...i like it very much...coins are well made too, especially that from the right side which is preparing to fall from the box...best of luck

avatar Drivenslush

Author..just a suggestion.. see if placing a duplicate copy of the box over itself and use multiply or overlay .. this might get rid of the chalky dusty look of the coins.. placing a duplicate of the same coin beneath itself may increase the thickness.. IMHO

I love the idea but in my eyes.. the coins are looking like flatten Pringle Potato Chips.. and I don't think that was your goal... good luck (it's a very good chop all around.. I'm just making a suggestion)
