that looks great but im not a pro at photoshop but i could create a background image and add 2 layers 1 for latios and the other for latios rotated (for the shadow) what would make it awsome would be if the shadow matched the sea but its still a great pic

OT: pokemunna, your sig's oversized.

But anyway, nice job Steve. The Latias could be bigger, and it doesn't really blend in with the background, but it's pretty good for a first try, and with Photoshop 7, at that. ^^

i use photoshop 7 -_- well, it's pretty good for a first try. it could be less pixelly, but the shadow is almost perfect. ^^,

the latias could be improved by:
-not putting it in the middle
-latias could've be bigger and had a little dimension, i believe ps 7 can do that.
-o.o; you could've also have air brushed it, and erase the outlines, makes it look more 3D
i like the background you chose, and the shadow was awesome too^^
I'm not a pro either :P don't worry

Hmm, there are tiny little white pixels on the latias not removed exactly... but because of the white body, you'll have to do it slowly ^^
You might want to shift it up a little, and have a slightly reddish inner glow, so that it looks like it is standing in front of the sunset...

Here, I made something similar, kinda following along with what the rest of you suggested, but because it aint his work, I am gonna post it in a new thread for me :P

I just saw DarkPhoenix's and now I see yours, Steve. Yours is good but Latias does not match the background, since the background is realistic-type and Latias looks really cartoonish. You could try blurring it a bit.

^what she said, air brush it and make it look 3D
