Very creative idea.. wonderful work

Edit: In my opinion the kite doesn't add much to the image, still it's your vision. Great entry anyway G'luck!!

The frame is almost unnecessary, but nice work with the mood of the image.

Great job in constructing the room, the realism in the lighting and shading looks great!

I can't help but notice a black outline around the potato, i suggest trying to remove that. You could try Layer -> Matting -> Defringe (by one pixel)

Good luck

Very creepy.. nice work!

The shadow that the tail end is casting could be a little more transparent, but other than that it's a great entry. Well done

Great image author! The rain looks great, and the shadow looks very natural. I can't say huge things about the originality factor, but it was executed really nicely. Good luck!

Really nice scene... excellent work. The line separating the skull is a bit distracting in my opinion, but other than that this has a very nice feel to it. Great masking too! Well done

The inner part of the boat shouldn't be completely black, rather the same material with a gradient shading.. Still, good mood, and you only used the source to make the background (which looks great)

Good luck and well done

I like your shapes and your figures, and i also like your idea.. and it's great for a first try with a mouse... i suggest however trying to work on lighting and shadows that would help to make this image seem more real. Good luck!

Nice work author. My suggestions would be to paint in a little bit of hair because in high resolution the selections around the heads look a bit too jagged, and also i suggest trying to remove the white edges around the man.

Very good image otherwise... nice idea and well blended.

Nice idea author, but i think the ripples let the image down a little. The trick that i use is to use the ZigZag filter. If you make a circular selection around the base of the neck and feather that selection by about 40 pixels and then go to Filter - Distort - ZigZag and play around with the options, you will get some nice ripples.

Good luck!

This reminds me of an entry I made a while back..

I suggest trying to work on the perspectives, the ground the sofa and the doll all have different perspectives. Other than that it's a good image with a nice idea behind it. Good luck

It's a great idea, but i do agree with Widair, rough selections are quite obvious especially in high resolution. I would also suggest lowering the number of stars in the sky, it seems a bit clustered at the moment. Good luck

Nice idea.. very tricky source to work with. I think the shadows on the roof would be a lot sharper than they are. Good luck

I feel like the shape and proportions of the cat are a bit awkward, the cat head seems to be a bit too big.. my suggestion would be to add a subtle shadow between the cat head and the body to help separate the two a bit. Other than that, it's a magnificent image. Great job.

ponti55 says:

Author there's a similar tutorial on the internet, if you used it as inspiration be sure to post it.

As for your image, it's a nice idea, but try to fade the shadows a bit as they distance themselves from the scarecrows, at the moment they don;t look too realistic. (Maybe try blurring it a bit more and lowering the opacity)

Good luck.
