What may seem like a pretty good photo manipulation eventually falls short on the smaller bits of detail. Not that this makes it a bad quality photo manipulation, but it definitely could have been executed better.
The background is great. It gives the whole photo a slicker look that really compliments the rest of the piece.
The character itself is well manipulated on a first look, but when looking closer there are some faults that can be easily fixed. For example, the lighting on the character does not go well with the lighting on the background (The "Flare" near the face and the overall lighting source of the background, which looks like the center). The render itself is a bit choppy, and you can see some mess-ups with the splatter and smudge effects (On the edge of her hair on her left shoulder, on the side of her stomach, and so on).
To sum things up, this is not a bad photo manipulation by any means. However, minor mistakes hold it from being a truly great deviation.
I really like the colour scheme, the blue and silver works wonderfully. I am a bit bothered by the pixelated edges around your figure, It takes attention from the piece. If you cleaned that up I would be wonderful! Keep practicing you have got some good ideas here.
wow no kidding! our styles are almost similar i like the color tones on this one and the disintegration you have going on, the only thing thats bothering me is that little chip part on her lower left part by her waist, almost all the caos is going on on the right side so i almost feel like the left side should be clean, you know what i mean?
but i like the background design you got going on as well [link]
Thanks for taking the time & Yeah I get what you mean. I noticed it and was like hmm... I was going to go back to fix that but thought maybe it wouldn't really matter. My initial thought on how to fix it was to add that patch onto the bear to make it seem as the bear had a nibble on her but then was like what if thats just stupid, so I just left it >.<
