    Pulse your tag is awesome, just blend the render a bit more

    Take a dark and light color from the BG, the more dominant ones preferably

    Make a gradient map with it on multiply

    Make sure you move the render upwards to the top btw, below the map

    make a clipping mask between the two

    play with the opac

    then ctrl j duplicate the gradient map

    put it on overlay and play with the opac



    thats how I usually blend renders, but hot realism Pulse

    And great as always Kennedy, thats one of your best tags ^_^

    Y'all better hope that Pepsi doesn't enter or you're all screwed.

    I had an awesome idea for a realism tag last night but couldn't find the stocks and now this...black hell.

    Pulse and Kennedy, nice stuff.

    Pulse awesome to the max, even though I have already told you that.

    I assumed that when they said the words "realism", and "as they appear in everyday life", that they meant stock images of real people. As in using a picture of a real person standing on a street corner, waiting on a bus or something. So far, I mainly see the usual sigs of Master Chief, and other gaming or comic characters. I'd like to enter of course, but I just grow a little weary of seeing the same characters used all of the time. Don't get me wrong, but is this what this week's SOTW is supposed to be about? Or real life people, instead of gaming characters? I just need to know before I try my hand.....

    "Realism in the visual arts and literature is the depiction of subjects as they appear in everyday life, without embellishment or interpretation."

    So I would say yes to your comment, more than likely.

    exactly. there is regular realism, "computer game realism", "future realism" and i can invent more. So atm I have no idea what sig i can enter and what not.
    i probably cant enter with this tag but others are entering with "game realism" tags, so imo theres not much difference.

    im porbably doing new tag anyway
