photoshoped real quick, plain background and no dancin women better? realistic bubbles to provide diversty?
Can you keep these all to one thread? It's hard to compare if it's an improvement or not.
The second was I think the best, but it's hard to say having them all over the place.
the painted one with the women inside the bubbles...? or the quick photoshop
i dont know how to make 1 thread
I think it's awesome with the realistic bubbles and no dancers. The realism of the bubbles offer a nice contrast and a good 'pop art' feel. But I think the dancers are too much. They simply aren't needed for the piece to stand out, IMO. Looking great!
Yeah, just ask a mod to merge your threads. Then after that, just reply to the same thread for all new images.
As for your painting, it's really hard to tell because the photoshop one is of lesser quality due to it's "hack and slash" nature. It's just sort of thrown together and the other one is actually presented as it is.
If I try to look past that, I have to say I like your original version more. Especially the background. I'd stick to the background that you had and just try to improve on the bubbles themselves. Specifically, some hotspots from a lightsource. Reflections would be nice, but I don't think they are even too necessary for the style you are going for.
Uh. The main problem with this that I see is that you seem to have taken another artist's work: http://cosio.deviantart.com/art/growing-Up-38188084 , and then hacked it to pieces with Photoshop filters. It's hard to judge the image overall because it's large, but the colors and filters really clash, and above all, you're just manipulating somebody else's photo, and that's a big no-no.
EDIT: Oh, I see. This is a painting and then you photoshopped the edits in. Hm. You said you're doing this for a show? Because I would not want anything of dubious copyright put into a show-- that's just going to invite trouble.
If you really want to salvage this piece, I would work on the rainbow theme to make it a bit more interesting instead of having everything so uniform. Put some dark darks and some highlights in there, and give some good contrast. I would also highly highly highly recommend doing something to the image so that it does not look like a direct rip-off of the picture below. Artists tend to look poorly upon people who copy their work so closely. :/

Work on blending the traditional and digital elements together better.
