Awesome work overall, though the shadows could use more work
I see you are making up for any shortcommings in the next one . Want to know a quick shadowing trick. This chop for instance,,,Copy the roo, re-paste with softest edge selection. You want the shadow edge to be as fuzzy as you can make it. Saturate all the way to full black. Grab the black layer at the top and compress down 2/3rds or so. Swap layer to fit behind the roo and reduce density to 15-25%. Set eraser tool to 5% and fade out any areas of shadow that don't look right or leave it if it looks cool. I use that method quite a bit when the image allows
Hi, where'd ya'll go. Even Rajesh has not commented. It can't be the pic, stupid thing won a cup. So, did the rapture happen. Did ya'll disappear. Is it my breath. I think I figured it out. The little bear farted and cleared the room, right.
Congrads on the cup, how's that, this is more work then a penny is worth.
Congrats on the Wood. Bet if the head were moved just a tiny bit to the left it would have won (should have won anyway, in my opinion).
I agree Bob. I struggled with that collar big time. I realize after it was over that I goofed on the corner of the pocket. Thanks for the votes folks.
Photoshop this image of grumpy guy (click to download) any way you wish. Some examples are: re-dress this grumpy man, make him walk in unusual places, use this grumpy man image in advertisements, movies, paintings, etc. These are just some ideas.
