    I could be very impressed but judging by the level of blending I doubt it. How muc did you do?

    I guess it's fine, but it'd be better if the guy was in the middle so that the focus would be on him.

    Interesting choiuce of effects on the background, but going from a photo realistic stock like that on top of an obviously false image (thats not intended as an insult) doesn't really work well.

    He doesn't seem like he belongs. The color palette conflicts with him, the resolution conflicts with him, just about everything about it doesn't work with him.

    Think of this, if you were in space with those colors of light sources, he wouldn't be that color, he reflects. In that image he is reflecting the New York sky and surrounding buildings, in space he would reflect differently, not to mention the shadows on him would change.

    I would try to create a background that matches his colors and style (or re-colorize him to match this but make its style more in tune with his).

    Check these out.



    See how the background has a bit of grain to it, but so does he, and the void of space and passing stars and asteroids match him very well.



    On this one its the same thing, he has the same coloring and texture as his background and his lighting makes sense.

    Plus in both his quality matches theres, he isn't photo real on top of an illustration or photoshopped image.

    You might want to try to find pictures of him like these to work with.

    I don't really like it, it needs better blending and I don't like the bg all that much either looks like you just rendered it and pasted it on.
