Author when I'm having trouble with how to do a shadow I Google image search for pics which might have examples of real shadows in a similar scenario/landscape/light setting, in this case maybe a tree with a large canopy, something like this perhaps

You know, the flame at the top left of her head, looks like another face, and when I look at this my mind gets fixated on it.

Perhaps this is one of those times when 'maybe it's just me', but there you go.

Having looked at the original image in the SBS this looks mostly the result of a particular free filter I can't remember the name of. I could be wrong mind you. Either way it's interesting to me at least...I like images that inspire the viewer's brain to make its own interpretation.

The problem I have with creating SBS's is that I like to experiment with different methods all the time, and often change my mind and make drastic changes halfway through a work, so making an SBS will usually take me a lot of time.

I don't really understand why people place so much importance on them; I'm more than happy to answer any questions from individuals who might message me asking 'how did you do that bit?'

Author a handy thing to remember in these situations is to be guided by the light of the source image; in this case the light is from top left, so the front and top faces of the cube should be brightest.

I think you'd be better of not putting a second vader head on the front face because it confuses the eye.

kcinsti says:

Awesome idea. Well conceptualized and sourced. Maybe a sourced rather than painted background would work better IMHO because there are some issues with it. I'm not sure why you would paint a second tree rather than alter the first, just to add to the consistency. The zebra's shadow doesn't meet it's feet as it should. I'm only mentioning these things because for me at least they make the difference between this image being good and excellent.

kcinsti says:

I *shudder* totally agree with CMYK. The eyes and nose aren't sharp enough to justify the focus of the rest of the image either way. I love the idea (reminds me of WALL-E btw) but the blurriness is putting me off.

Firstly, interesting treatment. I like it. Maybe I'm being picky but shouldn't the dragons reflect on the black surface the same was the symbol does? Also - at least looking at it on my monitors - there are some grey artefacts on the black surface that shouldn't be there.

You still have time to edit, there's also a dark line just below the pendant that shouldn't be there

Carved In Stone

You might want to soften the edges of the camel to match the sharpness of the surrounding image.

Also when adding shadows make the 'connection' of the two surfaces similar in darkness. i.e. the camel looks a bit like it's floating because the darkness of the shadow you made doesn't match the parts of the camel that are meant to be in contact.

The shadows are about right in strength, you just need to add that much darkness to the camel as well, or lighten it up where it's darker. If you don't understand what I mean (which wouldn't surprise me because sometimes I don't express myself very well send me a PM so I can illustrate.

PS: Just want to help!
