conundrum: Thanks for the suggestion. I am going to see how I can improve this, several people have pointed out that blur may be a little too much so I will have to adjust it accordingly.
Fahrija: I think darkening up the shadows on the people is important. I just hate to lose some of the details. But perhaps some subtle highlights and glows in the shadow areas may help bring back some detail. Thanks!
Tranchefeux: Thanks for the comments!
newcenturydsn: DOn’t worry, you are not being a pain in the ass. I rather you guys give me some solid feedback then none at all. I think I am going to try a different type of motion blur. I’ll probably paint in speed lines like they do in manga and comic books. Hard to explain I guess, but it works in my head. Thanks!
walrus: No worries! THe more you explain the better. I enjoy comments anyway. I agree with you with motion blur being a “cheesy” way of painting you can say, I don’t enjoy using it sometimes, but in situations like these where time is running out, and certain effects need to be achieved, they sometimes can help. But, I still have a few days so I am going to try a different type of blur. I am going to add motion lines like they do in manga and comics. It works in my head, so we’ll see how it works in photoshop Thanks! As for the riders in the background, I’ll try to make them more readable, but I want to avoid making them any larger because then the sense of scale will be incorrect when compared to other elements in the background. I think at least Thanks!
Falcor_: Thanks for the comments! I think I know where to go with this motion blur situation. You and several other people have pointed this out, and with everyones suggestions I should be able to fix this accordingly. Thanks!
Ilikesoup: Thanks for the suggestions! The forearms do look a little long, that shouldn’t take to long to fix, and the shadows on the riders will be adjusted. There is a second light source but cloud cover on the right side of the scene I think would prevent it from influencing anything on the ground. Unless you think otherwise
Thank you everyone for your thoughs and suggestions. I really apperciate the feedback! Once again I will adjust the piece according to several suggestions and I hope to have them posted tonight or tomorrow night (Friday). Good luck !
