the original picture is A4 dimensions so it was hard to find bigger grass textures :( any idea how to make the sun look more realistic? i do not understand lens flares, I just put them where I think they're supposed to be, should it be on the other side?
well they're supposed to be where the sun is because they are the sun's rays reflecting off of the lens of the camera but I think you should do without them for now. As for the sky itself look at this picture [img]http://www.chinapictures.org/images/tibet/1/tibet-40106153542170.jpg[/img] notice how the sky disappears into the distance instead of stopping suddenly. your sky needs to do something like that. Finally you need to blend the images, right now they don't look right together, play with the contrast, add shadows, lighting effects, colours make it look more like it's a natural photo rather than a photoshop. The first thing that stood out to me were the blades of grass that you placed then blurred in the foreground. Don't do that, oddly it looks like the DOF from something like MW2, play around with it till it looks like something that you can see in a photo [img]http://www.goodwp.com/large/201103/15788.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.blackberryforums.com.au/gallery/files/1/macro-grass-1024x1024-wallpaper-5452.jpg[/img] you might want to wait for someone else's opinion though, I've been too busy with illustrator to work with ps so my advice might not be so useful. [editline]13th February 2012[/editline] Ah yes one more thing too, your grass is like a flat carpet, there's no dimension. Go over it with a brush to make it look like it's actually 3D
very useful it's hard to find some good exploitable grass so I just used Photoshop brushes, I'll try fuckin' around with it some more and do what you said. the lens flare you see is placed directly on top of the sun, but i'll just try not going with the lens flare.
oh it looked like the circle was the lens flare and the sun was behind those clouds. anyway, lurk some CG forums for really high res textures
I wish the format was more like this [img_thumb]http://filesmelt.com/dl/bar-02-03_bette1.jpg[/img_thumb]

Does any one know of any amazing Japanese tattoo artists?

The lighting seems to come from multiple point lamps, instead of the sun and bounced light?
i'm not sure how to make bounced light, and I don't own any 3D programs :( it does come from 4 light sources though

[QUOTE=Maloof?;34675411]Don't listen to the people who tell you not to argue with criticism.[/QUOTE] There is a difference between 'ignoring' a critique (when you don't really find it relevant) - but still thanking the person for taking his/her time - and just arguing with the critique. The latter won't do nothing good to you. That's the only thing I disagree with you.
[QUOTE=Rusty100;34679616]ya like its been said a thousand times probably not the best environment to post written 'art'[/QUOTE] Could you suggest a thread per chance, my good sir? :D
Anywhere not on this forum, because he meant the entire forum isn't so great for written art. There used to be a thread for creative writing and it died after 10 pages over half a year
[QUOTE=mrhippieguy;34679610]so wait, are you doing that all in ps? can't help you, then. don't own a copy m'self, and haven't taken any sort of initiative to get it.[/QUOTE] it's all ps. i spent ages figuring out how the fuck 3D works, and I tried merging to 3D layers... it didn't end well, so I just kept to that text. it was supposed to have more text.. but then I put in grass and a background and shit.
