You think you're awesome, you think you know shit about Photoshop, but we'll see if you can beat this 20 minutes long bitch ass CnC.
To start off, you failed miserably at making your render the focal point. You overdid the textures, and it just looks crap. He's floating around in the middle of nowhere, yet there is ''water'' around him? How the fuck is that even possible?
My eyes are drawn to the left side of his right arm, there's a big white blob there that shouldn't be there. Fix it.
As for the flow, there isn't any. I'm a ''flow/focal/lightning'' whore, and I'm a master at it. You, on the other hand, are an : AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHA.
The render isn't even blended in perfectly, and you can still see some rough edges. --> left arm.
The whole piece is duo-tonish, and I personally disgust that, and it shouldn't be. Go for a blue/dark green/black'n'gray'n'white scaled tag.
The clipping masks in thi spiece are just ridiculously bad. Why did you even attempted to do it good? The right clipping mask, about 40-50'ish pixels away from his left arm just stands out too much.
If you were going for a scatter C4D type of signature, then why the hell did you add in brushes and lame black shit? You RUINED it instead of making it better by painting black all over the god damn place.
The borders are just lame. If you know how to execute borders, then do it. If you don't, then go for an all-round 1 pixel border, 'cause this is just making me laugh my fucking ass off.
As for the lightning, oh god, please. You said my lightning sucked, but what kind of shit is this?
You just brushed white with a low opacity setting in a layer, put that ABOVE the border, and screwed the whole thing up.
You misunderstood the meaning of blending too. Why the fuck would you blur all of the effects that are behind the render? That's fucking raping the depth. If I were you, but I'm not because I am smarter, I would pin-point several nice effects, sharpen them a bit more to make them stand out.
I wouldn't even give this a 4/10.
You came at me, but I won.
