I dunno, there is something about this that I like. Sure, it's a bit confusing and could have used a background, but I still like this

I like the effect of tree ice. With a little more work on the hair and a better background this entry would have rated high.

I've seen the ice effect using trees on the text tutorial... you'll notice on that, that the main body of the text becomes 'whiter' on the outside, which I think in this image is missing... ultimately whne using a texure like this everything else has to follow... just using a tree brush like this is just making the image look as thought it's somewhat clipped inside...

It's too dark and indistinct. Is the figure flat or 3 dimensional? Is that a tree on the right or a frost pattern?
No background hurts this image more than helps it.

The face growing out of her shoulder blade throws this piece off. I think she looks good without it.

Good effort, but you have too many gray tones in the "sketch," which is what is causing the visual confusion. Try adjusting Brightness and Contrast to make it more of a Line Art paper sketch, and adjust your burnt edges a bit, making them larger. They are too "lacy" at present.

You've gotten pretty close with the effect, though!

Ahh I see it now! My comment looks a bit silly now

What I might suggest then is trying to create a little more depth to show the distance of the old drawing and the photo. You could do this bu adding a shadow from the paper and hand, or adding a slight amount of blur to the photo.

I like the idea, but my questyion is if you are ripping the picture, why would her face still be underneath but in B&W? Perhaps it would be more effective to have her face blank and maybe an inverted (mirror image) of the smiling face on the back of the torn piece...

Great job author!! What if you made the area behind her on the left where the smoke is red and yellow to help make that "pop" a little more....maybe a little darker gray for the background just behind her...have it fade from dark to light.....Just a suggestion and best of luck

Nice image overall, though I would suggest burying a part of the statue head, he looks a bit floaty now, and if he was still sinking, the surface of the water would be very rough from the impact. I would probably dull down the bubbles a little too, they stand out and look a bit artificial at the moment.

Nice clean manipulation! I'd try to watch out for the black edges around the model, but other than that you've done a good job. (watch out for light sources and shadow direction too)

Nice idea. I would suggest some gaussian on the shadow with greatly reduced opacity. The ambient light would make the shadowed grass visible. Also, since the grass is blurry, a little blur may help the diner fit in better too.

My only suggestion would be a smoother color transition from the graphic blue into the splashy blue, and that's only subjective. Over all I think this is very artistic and well composed.

Nice. But if you match the colour of splashes with sunflower petals, it will look more dynamic & realistic.

Stunning work; very impressive and love the colours.

There is one thing that I noticed in hi res ... there is a very thin line that runs - horizontally along the midway point, through the neck of the bottle, up the side of the bottle's neck, through the where the red and pink horse met and across the top just over the yellow horses head. I am sure you just missed it or it is something to do with the upload compression but thought you might like to know ;-D
