I never try with different modes on the shape's shadow :thud:  But when we have perspective, it's a little more difficult to have a shadow in good way - at least for me.

Exactly, Aelin. This is why I said it only works sometimes. But as Nita points out, you can also Warp it to make it work...sometimes. It depends on the direction where the main light source with the shadows is coming from. If it's down low then that becomes a problem often (the long shadows).

With Poser you can render the shadows separately from the colored image. Overlay them on the image and then you have to play with the layer blending modes to get the right look and blur the shadows layer some - how much is up to you.

Seems i haven't your skill Nitab :psycho: The distorsion is always... distorted :thud:  But that leave me hope that one day i find my way like you.

That's something you have to practice and practice to get how to do it. Because of my cad-drafting experience over the years with 'rasterizing layers' with contours, aerials, etc. it's not a big deal for me. It can be tricky though. Just remember the eraser and layers are your friend there as well.

Good ideas, adding the BG in studio would have been easier. I rendered the characters seperately and had to guess on persective. The other problem I made for myself :) was not thinking about matching lighting, but I used a trick that sometimes helps. Copy BG and put it on top layer, then do a very heavy blur and change it to a screening layer. Lower the opacity and feather out areas were it is still to strong with a layer mask or eraser. You will loose some detail but it can add atmosphere.

Yes, mtd! It's easier with the background in the view so you can see the perspective better and pose them with less hassle...and I know you love perspectives! 

I've done what you're talking about as well with Screen, Soft Light, and Multiply layers - then erase what I don't want in each layer. There's always ways, aren't there? :smiley:

Yes, sidherose I think because of landscape photography interest I like panoramas and the distorted perspective from wideangle and fisheye lenses. I like doing postwork too, photoshop is so powerful I only know a little but try to learn new techniques from tutorials. I really like the effects you create, they are very flowing and artistic :smile:
