Pretty cool, but I'm not diggin' the mushrooms. Too straight of a line, they almost look like sprinklers or something

Pretty cool, but the perspective of the shoulders don't match the wings (she's kind of turned to the side a little, but the wings are head on)

Well composed image. The only nitpick would be the rhino's head where it meets the water. Just looks strange to me. Otherwise well done.

symmetry is not always what makes thing fine ...
it would be better if you had done some major changes in their pose or sth else

There is something very appealing or intriguing about this. But I have some issues: I find the car on the surface inappropriate considering they do not float and we can see the water is very deep (and you already have one submerged - great job!) The submerged person is too "bright" and sharp compared to the underwater scene. The waterfall implies two levels of water, with the rush coming toward the us; if true, that would require a large corresponding splash on farthest part of the left building, too, to show that forward movement.

You have so many sources, hard to find which one. It will help in the future if you title them such as "head and neck," "lungs," "wound," etc. instead of "Source 1," "Source 2," etc...

You're right, the body is unaltered from your source. It then becomes your overall composition that makes it seem too large and poorly placed within the image. This is a visual "illusion" created by the eye's movement from your other elements, colors, and value choices. But since your focus was a zombie effect, more than an optical illusion of distortion, I still stand by my last statement that your technical execution needs work to create a more visually believable balance of the elements used.

She looks too cut and paste, like she is floating above the walk path. The head is also anatomically off, with the face looking too large and far away from the rest of the head and neck.

An interesting concept, but the technical execution needs a bit more attention to detail.

Yes, it's great, though I would have made one or two changes, if you make a tutrial for it, love to have a go.

avatar Drivenslush

Do you think shrinking the entire snake body would help with the balance? (thickening the upper body of course to match the distortion) just that snakes are usually thickest in the top of the pipe, not in the lower) but this is surreal so it is pretty much fair game, altering the background insect creatures so they aren't so duplicated would create more interest in the overall effect as well.. great job.. and GOOD LUCK always, IMHO

I think a Dodge tool run over the frog might increase the image (visually) he's a cutie good luck

This is really cool. Did you intentionally make this diagonal? It also would look good flipped 90* counter clockwise. Although that would be less interesting. The way you have it now...sorta makes you think a bit...which is probably better. Nice job, author!

looks much better now... and i just noticed the tail end of another bird you placed to the left of the image... i liek the idea of a squadron of these, why not group some together in the distance behind her? great stuff!

Would be more believable if the shell were a lot smaller, like saddle sized. Otherwise it's a fun image.

Also, the rope is not in her left hand... It is behind it. Mask that hand below the fingers to have the rope thside her hand at the bottom.

Cool concept. But there are some shadow issues: shell on bird body, steering poles on shell and bird body.

avatar Drivenslush

Making the tail bigger might ground her more, but hell.. it's a fantasy image so what ever you see in your minds eye is okay with me.. (I just see the tail bigger and more powerful to move her body torso) GREAT JOB AND GOOD LUCK .... IMHO
