    Just playing around with some effects and lighting, not sure what to make of it, need some text adding I think somewhere. Just thought I'd post it up for opinions etc, any C&C will be appreciated. It's still unfinished too, just got a bit bored. Moving on now I think.

    Edit: Just to point out before anyone asks, no brushes are used, I RARELY use brushes now, it's all done with filters and the pen tool.

    Looks nice. You should add some effect to that hands. Maybe add some sharpeness to it so it stands out.

    I say this because our eyes immediately go to that area and I'm guessing it would look cool. In fact, the whole render looks a bit too dull. It would be nice to have some sharpe areas so it could look balanced. Other than that, it's great.

    Aye, the problem with the photo is it's too damn blurry to work with but it was the best photo which inspired me to use, it's just a stock photo from DeviantART but thanks for your input, I'm going to get into a studio soon with some friends and do some proper photo's of my own to work with, I'll get a better quality image then and it will look clearer.

    Thanks

    That sounds nice. You have anymore to show us? Or a link to a portfolio or something. I like your graphics, well from this one image.

    I like how far you've come, keep it up man. In fact, you inspired me to open up the ole PS and give something a try. I'll a topic if it's any good.

    Good luck with it, just experiment, look at tutorials and try new things out, don't be scared if it doesn't look "good" you can argue the fact it's amazing since it's art, and there's nothing right in art

    Unless it's for a client and the clients are always right
