Similar values in foreground & background don't help the figures to stand out, also some blur on background might help.

good feedback so far author. I look forward to seeing the changes you make. I think Skogan has covered most of what would improve your image. Love the concept and how you have used the image to make it your own.. all the best.

The shadow shoudn't be there on 'right leg/knee and face. I think the image without that shadows/dark shades will fit with whole lighting. Good luck

Nice job If I may offer some advice? You should be a little bit more consitent with your water reflections I think. The boat reflection is distorted and that is a nice touch but then all of your reflections should be the same. You have very sharp reflections under the shoe and under the boat but basically the whole image should be reflected equally in the water.

I really like how you did the water over the shoe!

You have a bit of a conflicting lightsource in the picture with light coming from the right on the gnome and from the left on the boat.

Anyway, nice image and good luck!

Really nice 3d image you started with. Although I must say I do very much prefer the second or third image in your sbs. I think after those steps your image became harder to read, maybe because of the darkness. Also I really didn't notice some of the nicer details, such as the birds until I enlarged the image. Would've been cool to see a camel or something in step 2 of your sbs, or a greater focus on the birds. Even if they were closer in the final composition. Overall good job, and good luck!

hmm I always thought buoy was the stuff used in ocean for markers and marking of anchor and crab pots locations. I heard that in some place fishing floats are also called fishing buoy. But Swimming floats or Swim Rings ?

Oh well good job . The only thing you missed is the ring ridge seams where they heat sealed the air filling assembly piece to the plastic sheet that make up the tube. Its generally about 1/2 inch around the blow tube. on the one I have seen.

Author!!! Fantastic job! Now I can cast my vote! I am very glad that I was able to help you. I am not a 3D master, or anything. But I have been in school for animation for a while, which is why you don't see a lot of entries from me. I just don't always have the time for my own projects. But I like to see what other people have submitted and critique them, and see others' critiques. Makes my own projects better. I hope that this was a good experience for you, too!

Author. I found it. It's called caustics. Look that up and see if it is something that you would like to add to your image to make it better. If not, the image is pretty good. But caustics gives light that quality it has when it passes through a refractive surface, like water or glass and lands on another surface, in this case the book.

I know what it is, but I have forgotten what it is called. I will find it and tell you.

My only concern is that that red book seems to be reflecting the glasses. It shouldn't be reflective at all, I don't think. There should be shaddows cast on the book, and the light passing through the lenses should be show on the book like in the source image. But your book is oddly reflective for the material it is made of!
