Something random I did in Photoshop for a bit of fun. I could have spent more time on it and made it better, but I quite like how it turned out anyway.

Nice job here I like the reflection effect you pushed on here and different from the background it was really good I think the background should be a bit deeper and darker while the reflection be more shiny that would be a plus of things that actual main focus here was really good though anyways nice work here

More reflection and a darkening backround


The random colors are nice, but the bottom looks strange.


Again, the colors in your work are really good. Not as vibrant or interweaving as "Mike's" but still attractive nonetheless.

What really helped me get into this one was the reflection. It gives the picture a sense of depth and just adds to the work overall, and the fact that it's a little blurred improves it's realism.

Just like we used to make :)

When I was at school as a kid (We're talking almost 20 years ago now, WTF?!) we used to do pictures like this - coloured background in wax crayon, then paint over the top in black poster paint. Next day, take a matchstick, or other blunt wooden implement and scratch out the detail you want, which is then picked out in many colours.

But this is much more! It's got a reflection, it's got degrees of focus, between Colin himself and the background and it's got a hell of a lot more skill than a seven year old can produce in school :P

Man, you're one underrated artist - do you do any otehr styles, or just the psychedelic shadow puppets?

Looks nice

I think this looks nice. The colors are pretty psychadelic but they also go along well with each other.

I like the reflections in the image, but I think the "reflection line" is too visible. It would be nicer if it was more subtle, maybe with only a slight color change at first and then slowly change the colors more (ie you change the color from yellow to orange immediatly, but I think a slower change would look better here).
