Funny, and nicely done, love the blurred second image ( The arm holding the weights is not quite right though, the forearm is much larger than the arm closest to the viewer, and it appears unattached to the body because of the scale and perspective)
qtrmoonshop... your right, good eye, thanks for catching that, can't believe I missed it. This should work.
I have only just started using Paint Shop Pro and am self taught, any advice on anything will help me, so feel free to give me constructive critisisms as some of the work I have seen on this site is amazing ... Member reactions:
I would suggest the following: 1) remember that shodows are your friends 2) Text is too edgy. It looks like you cropped it out of doodiee background. Why not type the text right on the picture. However, as the great minds say, good entry should work without text. 3) Work on more accurate masking. There are many tutorials out there. I like the concept however - I think it can make a strong entry if properly edited.
Hiya, thanks a lot for your advice NM, my masking definately needs work on, i also really need to look into reflections, shadows etc, as not very good at them. The text however was typed directly onto my image, so not sure what happened there. I have loads of ideas which I think are good, but some of my best laid plans do not come to fruition . Hopefully soon I will be up there with the best of you .. Thanks again, much appreciated. Lu ;o)
