Hey guys

I don't really do much Photoshopping much anymore, but yesterday a mate suggested (jokingly) that I photoshop a monster or something into one of my photos, so I spent a couple of hours on it and came up with this.

I think it looks alright, but any advice on making it look more real, or making the 'splashing' look any better would be great :D

Be brutal, but gently :)

Thanks

Hi Mannos, for me the star wars machine is just perfectly blended, nice job(maybe some wet texture in the legs if you want to be extra picky XD). The water splash needs some work, the waves only goes in one direction and are to big for a calm wave(i dont know how to said it in enligsh XD), they finish to abruply, too bright and need some perspective and ilumination work.

My advice is to start again with the splash trying diferent splash and water movement pictures.

Cheers!

The water was the bit I was 'Worried' about. thanks for the advice. I may look into some tutorials when I go back to it :)

Ok, second attempt :D

haven't done a huge amount, but decided to make it a little wetter

Again, any and all advice/criticism is welcome, it still doesn't look perfect, but can't figure out why. plus I'd like to have a small canvas of this, and want it to be as good as I can get it :)
