The skull pieces need some grass blades in front of them so they don't look like they're floating. Try using the smudge tool at a very small brush size around 75% strength or less.

Nice image, just a few ideas Instead of blurring that part of the mountain maybe use some low lying clouds or even try get hold of another image with mountains in the background, you could then keep the foreground of this image. When doing hair its hard, we all go through it but if you use the lasso tool etc you can adjust the feathering Took me a long time to catch on to that one. Lastly is the skull in question, it still looks like its floating on the background, it might be because of the bluring in the rest of the image, makes the different textures stand out. But hey, you have a week to play with it. Goodluck

Yes, it is much better now. As a final touch you can add little shadow where the girl's hair meet the donkey's face. You can also use the smudge tool to add some hair there, so they look more natural.

Nice idea. I like the fact that the tree trunks have the same inclination as the man's body.
Just pay more attention to your masking. The man's edges seem transparent, at his legs there is a white rim, the donkey's head where it meets the sleeve looks transparent too. Also, do a better blend for the girl's head where she touches the donkey.

I like how the edge is in contrast to the knife color, but your counter top is pretty busy and takes away a little from your subject. I'd love to see this knife on a solid colored background to accent the edge. Just my opinion. Nice entry author.

i loved it because i'm a big tennis fan, i'd add some tennis rackets and and balls in the back seat of the car for more realism and as a justification for using this particular background, good luck.

Edit: also i'd clone or somehow remove the reflection of the car shown in the silver tires

Bear in middle ground should be smaller. It's almost the same size as the forground bear. This image is kinda funny, but not well thought out. The bear & bale in the foreground would have reflections.

The eye looks like it was pasted on the sky, you should try to blend it a little better. Great idea tho.

A somewhat odd concept, but the biggest problems are the perspecive and the blurriness. The blurry bears on the top half, and the blurry hay roll in the water do not blend well with the rest of the image. The falling bear on the hay roll does not show a motion blur, it just looks blurry. The drop off to the water also looks very strange, since it is a different perspective than the field and the water at the bottom, and has a different light source.

nice room...
avatar Drivenslush

Without and SBS there is really know way to tell you how to fix the distortion issues on the sitting person. Distort/Warp/Puppet could help correct the odd body angles(his faded outline edges are a bit weird compared to the rest of the realism in the room.. also the lack of shadows cast by the standing figure makes him float...

While the concept (love the room walls) is quite good, the execution is a bit muddled. A little tender care might help this image a lot. (Good Luck)

suggest re-shape the head of snake, can use real snake for reference.. the tongue should be a split ended one (like a ribbon on a present type)

good choice of background.. alas, no surprise or danger.. suggest add a frog as prey or something

one way to do minimal change is to convert the pizza-guy to a signage instead, with white edges all-round (a cut-out look)

MossyB says:

The shadows on magicsteve do not correspond with the drop shadow beneath him - one is lit from the side, and one from above...If you also look at the other people in the background, you do not see such heavy shadows on one side of them, general ambient lighting is stronger.

You can try using the Dodge tool or Image>Adjustments>Selective Color>Blacks to try to bring it more into line with the rest of the image.

I think there should be no light effect on the balloon but around the balloon. Because you are facing the sun, so there should be a lights coming out from the behind of the balloon. May be it is a rays of light and it stretched out (but it should be very thin because it is a sunset). and there should be a small diffuse light on the lower right of the balloon because it face the sun and also to give it a 3d sphere shape. I also think that texts were write on the balloon, so it would be round like a balloon, so you can use a warp tool to do so.

Too dark. The figure in front appears to have no head, and the crayon appears to be crooked and tilting to the left. The shadows of the people are too distorted and kind of goofy looking, not to mention the directions they are all going in signifies a very strong light source centered behind the crayon, and much lower than the lighting on top of the clouds would indicate...

This just doesn't seem to be very well thought out.

Nice idea, but the features look pasted on, like cutout paper, rather than actual facial features. Perhaps using a Bevel and Emboss Layer style set to "pillow emboss" might help integrate them better into the balloon people.

MossyB says:

The lighting on the top right of the balloon is inconsistent with the very obvious low sunset...
Also, the lettering looks flat, and does not conform to the shape of the balloon, in addition to being difficult to read because the left side of the image is too dark.
I'd lighten the overall image, bend the type to fit around the balloon better, and correct that top lighting.

1) select the green body using "magic wand"
2) use "dodge" for highlights (lighter part of the body towards the light source)
3) use "burn" for shadows (darker part of the body)

add simple bumpy texture to body:
1) add "noise" (not too much, need to experiment)
2) add "blur", "gaussian blur"

add depth for water background:
1) select the water area
2) choose a darker blue, use "paintbrush" paint at the bottom portion of the image
3) add alittle "noise" , then a little "motion blur", then add "ripple" or "wave" (under "distort" to taste

Hope this helps, of course there are more methods that can be used... do some exploring online photoshop tutorials

avatar MossyB
MossyB says:

The lighting on the front of the woman is inconsistent with the lighting on the crayons, which is from above and far less intense. The edges are a bit too sharp, enhancing the "cut and paste" effect of this, and by blurring the crayons, the perspective is thrown completely out of whack, since the red crayon is at the same depth as the blurred ones next to it...
