    You’ll never be able to tell by the pixels.

    Before, this bear was just fishing - but now he’s rocking out.

    Pretty impressed, spent some time looking at it and if I could have achieve it.

    Not sure I could. The bear reflections in the cello are spot on. The lighting parity is amazing in the two layers. Did you have to alter them, or were you lucky in having images with similar lighting conditions.

    My only suggestion would perhaps be 1px of feathering around the cello and maybe the slightest touch of outer glow.

    But who am I to judge, this is awesome on a technical level and a composition level.

    Great work.

    Hey, thanks. This was a “joke” I did for something on Reddit. So I didn’t put 100% or too much time into it. The reflections, in my opinion, still would need a ton of work to look real. If I had the PSD, I’d blur the cello body reflection and bring more of the sky image I overlayed in. I’d manually draw fur in over the cello too [didn’t have my tablet nearby, as I did this on my MBPro].

    I usually google image search for images to match the lighting, then tweak a tiny bit for colour/contrast/shadows.

    Best part is I get to have some fun!

    EDITED TO ADD:

    [url=http://i.imgur.com/bMvhCA6.jpg]Here’s[/url] another one I did as a joke called “A Beautiful Sunset in Ireland”.
    I can’t find the source background image, but I managed to find the [url=http://www.pbfingers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/running-leprechaun-st-patricks-day.png]magic ingredient[/url].
    It’s my current desktop - I get a chuckle out of it everytime.

    So much for the free market :p

    And BTW I have been using photoshop professionally since 1993 so all of you please know your place. Thank-you 😎

    iawgoM, we should have a good ole’ fashioned Photoshop battle. Take an image, and then take turns adding elements to it until it becomes a horrible, horrible monster.

    Chris, by the looks of your picture, you would have been about 9 in 1993 - did Thatcher’s reforms really bring the country back into the industrial dark ages? I mean, breaking unions, sure I get it, but child labour?!
