you search for psd coloring and then you download it. Just like how you get the fonts, you extract or unzip it then go to gimp and open file and select psd. To use it, just drag the psd file to your canvas. For example: (I use PSCS3 but I remember when I used GIMP 2.0 the steps are practically the same)

need advice on this one. didn't want to put up the text yet.





Hi sakura! if you don't mind I'll try my best to give you advice, critics and suggestion ^^

First - Let's about the positive and good things about your work.

Good Job on doing this!!
I can really see you took your time and nitpicking looking at every part of the edit, you tried blending the Render with your background and your front ground. I said blending is because you wanted the render to fit in with the photo as a 'whole' not making it out of the photo, you made it part in the photo by putting a fractal c4d and other textures in front and at the back as well.
Another good thing is that you've manage to blend the bottom part of the photo and the right render.
Thought it might not have blended well you can fix that with some magic (well this is how I fix mine with magic - which will be shown later)
The attention/attraction of the photo is the Middle part that is where everyone looks at first (tips: but if you want the attention to drift to another part on the first seen basis, you use fonts and lightning to get the attention of the viewers to the font but if your purpose for the edit is the EDIT itself try your best to blend the font with the edit so it won't steal the attention, but if your purpose it to advertise something using FONT, then do so ^^)


You are almost there sakura-san! You know what's missing for you? It is colouring.

Second - Fixing mistakes + add correction to your mistake

The edit itself is already nice Sakura-san. Though personally the RENDER most likely would fit with a different style of Edit.
Reminder: You should look at the render first of what you've choose or pick as it depicts the style of the edit style you will use! The render on this photo would suit very well on a collage style edit. Thought it's not wrong to experiment new things like this ^_^

If you see on the top Photo I circled the part of the wafer stick. If you look closely there's a stroke like on it, based on my experience viewers are really picky and they nitpick on those small little things, next time try your best to get rid of them if you can't
There's always a saying if you're in doubt, dab/blend it out!

Mistake's that every new editor does, also to some old editors (like me xD I still do this mistake) is that they forget to add colour to the edit! Colour is everything. It changes a lot on the photo! Example for your one. The colours aren't contrasting with one another. And colour also helps blending and making a not good edit (I'm not saying this to your edit, I'm saying this about mine ^^ my Teacher edited my ugly work and it turned into a beautiful swan just by simple adjusting and adding colour to it) into a nice edit.

This is one of the first edits I've done (I couldn't find the 'before' photo)

my teacher made it look nice by adding a Gradient Map and blend the layer to Hue then adjusting the Opacity and Fill


It's easier to show you, then explaining > w <
Colour can help blend the photo by changing the colour of your render and everything around it

We successfully changed the colour, now it has kinda blend in with the background however you have to look closely on the red it looks too red, now this is where we adjust filters and add filters

Now it looks less red than before! ^_^ you can see also the hair of the blue girl has blended well with the background and other parts of the render too, but that's still not the end of the Magic! with Sharpening

Go back to the photo of where I encircled a yellow circle on parts of the edit? It's because they weren't blending well, but that's a not a problem with Sharpening! It sharpen's the edit making it edgy and purposely like that It helped it blend with the background.

There is another way of blending those edges where I mark yellow circles is highlighting and blurring

Though I might haven't done it properly especially the red bit part > w < but you get the Idea. If you can practice on these small steps bit by bit you will love editing so much! Sorry if my commentary might have hurt you and might be hard to understand I just hope you improve which I why I did this commentary to help you grow!
