It looks really good. But personally, I'd really like to see how your work would look with less brushes, and more realism.

I try and work on it a bit Plazz but have a lot of problems not making the fighter renders look obtruding, making them appear more natural is the biggest problem for me.

Yeah but that's the fun part. You gotta practice practice practice. The more natural you can make a sig, the more aw inspiring it is. Because afterall, anyone can slap together a few brushes and make a hot sig, although you've mastered that because you make nice sigs.

Just like, try and work with lighting, photo effects and transparency more. Broaden your horizens.

its all about how much time u put into it... im not near the best artist here but heres what i normally do :

first i use quick selection to get the large areas out

then i enlarge the pic to it gets really big and use a 1-2 pxl brush and go around all the edges. ( remember to have a coloured layer underneath so u see the rough parts better )

the feather effects are used sometimes by me but i dont really like em cuz i feel they sometimes "cut" to much into the pic.

ALSO and heres a personal trick of mine....the blur tool.
i know some ppl here wouldnt like using it to smooth the edges but i actually think it works nice ( it has to be a somewhat high quality pic though ) after u have brushed the edges then use the blur tool too smoothen it.
PS. too high pxl on the blur tool will make the edges give out a faint glow. there are several ways to get rid of this but the way i do it is to go over it once more with the eraser to take out the glowing "white" areas the blur might have left behind

i use multiple render layers to blend my renders in
usually smudge a few layers then guassian blur one and put underneath the render, use a fade eraser around the edges of the unedited render and then click edit>fade eraser and set it to like 20-30%

adding c4d's over the top also helps just takes awhile to get used to them.

but yeah blending takes awhile to master
