View Full Version : Stop image looking like a Sticker

01-26-2011, 06:33 AM
As you can see from my image the turtle looks like it's a sticker on a pane of glass.

I've tried layer blur, but this didn't seem to give a satisfactory result and now need some help from more experienced Ragers as i have no idea how to tackle this problem.


Thanks in advance

WOw...um this is a toughie.

I would try some seabed flora and add some other sized (depth) fish. The turtle looks fine but the blurred background seems kindof empty.;)

Well ,,, just an idea. For what it is worth.:rolleyes: Also, I would make the shell more lifelike 3d looking. It might help too.

OK, I wish you happy painting! Love to see it when it's done! :eek:

Kinda ike this:

The image is a WIP and before progressing further i thought i would ask for some tips/advice

Just trying to transfer the Sketch to digital and learn the techniques and of any shortcuts. :)

Just looked at the Sphere's painted by Picaso and Someonesane on Water Color Bleed thread and they don't look like stickers, but as though they are part of the image and i'm thinkong how the heck do those guys do it :):)
