Nice - I would have thought over that time the water would have been a bit smoother?? GL

Nice - but I would try and source some more variations in the stone windows.. I am sure there would be a lot out there.

Is there a reason that there appears to be a smooth crisp line on the right hand side of the flame? Maybe blur the edge? Overlay some other flame sources already in the required shape? It looks like its just been sliced out. Good Luck.

BATTLE

You have a few perspective issues, but its an interesting idea. You might want to add another layer of coral further back, add some depth? Also your middle comet would have a smoke trail that runs off the edge of the screen. GL.

Maybe some more water source images or bubbles etc overlayed on the arm with added transparency? Just for a bit more depth? Steam?? Keep at it..

The Epic Wrestle
avatar animmax
animmax says:

Interesting take - you really need to polish it some more - there are lots of masking edges and colour remnants, especially in the hi-res, the inside corner of the water elbow as an example.. Plus the two vertical lines that run top to bottom could be erased or cloned out. I would also lightly erase and blur the edges of the water spray off the arm, they show a defined edge. You have time to fix this yet.. Keep at it. Good job.

THE CHALLENGE

animmax says:

While the depth on the noose line is well done, it would not be there in a real 2D situation. Not sure if its 100% appropriate for younger visitors to the site, but thats the mods choice.. Well done..

Its an interesting idea - but the shark is a little too blurry in my eyes. I would have another go at cloning out the part of the sky next to the sharks head. You can see the pattern forming there.. GL.

Nice montage - but your light sources are from different directions.. Maybe flip the background? GL

animmax says:

Interesting idea. But I agree with CMYK about the darkness. I feel you need to have the horizon almost visible for the distinction between the reflection, but thats your call. I would work more on your edges - like the fingers. They seem rushed compared to the rest of the image. Also your girl is in focus, the background blurred and the moon is also in focus? GL.

animmax says:

Nice - I would think about adding the rear curve of the water surface inside the blender, just looks a little odd without it.. GL.

(5 years and 2276 days ago)

Help me!
avatar animmax
animmax says:

Interesting idea - i just think you need to try and match your focal distance for the image. Some things are a lot more blurred than others, while some parts are quite sharp. GL.

Nice work - I would make a small change, I would take the engine out from under the wing of the plane. I know its not correct, but I think it would still suit. GL. Was this idea from a tutorial? I just remember seeing one on this type of image a few months back and I have not been able to track it down again..

Nice - i would add a very slight blur along the edge of the treeline to break up some of the sharp edges you have - especially with the mountains. GL.

I think the face of the watch could be a lot better without the reflection.. I doubt MS would allow the use of their logo etc though? Maybe change it to Linux or a different free or open source variant? GL

Maybe rotate the blade so the cutting side is facing downwards?? Maybe feather the opacity around the skull into the face some more? Looks just a bit sudden.. GL.

Um.. Im not too sure - but wouldnt beef jerky come from beef?? Author, just wondering if the blur to each side was by design? Maybe more of a focus blur?? I would take out the lens flare because your highlights are opposite to it.. GL.

Nice - but you might want to add a touch of blue maybe to the base of the wings to help with the blend? Also you might want to add your source on the main page or you might get asked a few times, not everyone looks at the sbs.. GL.

animmax says:

Checking the hires - you might want to refine the edge under the chin? it looks like some grass?? also maybe at the ear also? Hole is looking better, maybe a touch more shading darker the further down you go?

Maybe try a soft edged eraser on low opacity, that might blend it all a little better..

Maybe some bubbles out the side of the suit? From what i remember these style suits always had bubbles coming out the top?? GL.

interesting - but more work is needed on your hole. The rock texture is leaking through. Maybe select part of it and rotate it to vertical rows, then layer that with a little warp for curvature for the inside of the hole?

Interesting - I think your moon could use some work, hard to see it properly without a hi res, the lightning might be better if you found some stock for it - at the moment it looks like its from one of those static type desk lights? Maybe some extra storm clouds or something?? GL
