The eyes on the kettle appear to be floating. Masking around the kettle needs some attention to make it look like the background was always black.
The whole pot could probably go a a shade or two darker and have some edge shading.
Nice work on the handle. -Edited by Moderator on 7/29/2007 12:08:28 PM
Very nice. I like so much when the object of the challenge is the main focus, and not only part of the scene. Good job. Congratulations.
You did impressive work making the spider-web handle of the kettle. I agree that eyes look somewhat floating though. perhaps decrease their contrast somewhat and make their edges a bit flatter to follow the curve of the kettle.
