    Crossing Guards Walking Through Volcanos
        • This is truly impressive. You did a wonderful job with lights and shadows and the colors to bring all the sources in a harmony. Love how you used the DiCaprio source in the background
          The original you submitted is only 800 pix wide though? Please realize that we allow up to 500KB for submissions, which leaves plenty of room for big images (at least 1000 px wide). This beauty needs to have a much bigger size in its "original" link.

  • Crossing Guard Wearing a Barrel

    Crossing Guard Wearing a Barrel
        • Interesting idea. Perhaps consider using a different barrel source as this one looks too flat. Also the woman's hand holding a bag looks like it was just roughly painted - better replace with some photo sources. Legs need more work too they are roughly painted with jagged edges and missing shadows. The areas around the legs and barrel are also painted over with one flat gray color, killing the photo feeling of the image. Better stay away from the painting method you use as this does not blend well with photo sources.
