Default FOCUS GROUP: "Knights of Steel" Manip Poster

Hey guys, just got finished working on this. Spent a couple hours in photoshop and wanted some constructive feedback. What do you think?

For Batman, I maniped the Arkham suit, with the TDK cowl, and Affleck's jawline

Change the title, it's horrible. The rest is perfectly fine, not sure it deserves it's own thread though, would be fine in the fan art and manips thread. Also, Batman is missing the tops of his ears.

No, and did you seriously have to make a thread for this?

I would not go with the lighter colors. Also, I would find a pic of them fighting each other head to head like street fighter. New title also.

I don't think there is any immediate feedback that can help it right now at this time.

You need to study and mimic other artists who are better than you until you find your own distinct style. Look through Deviant Art and the forums here.

The whole thing looks cheap and amateurish and you probably have a little ways to go before you start to improve. But keep working at it.

Also, there is a Fan Art thread we have which is why you are getting some of the responses you are getting. It's not really proper etiquette to just make a whole thread for your own piece of art.

The fonts look really plain, that definitely stands out. Doesn't give off a professional vibe at all, the name Knights of Steel is almost comically bad as well. The proportions are off, Batman looks much bigger than Superman and neither figures mesh well with the background. Also that composite of Affleck is made up from too many sources. The cowl looks weird on that suit and not proportionate and the pose is awkward.

thanks for the comments

I will look at deviant art

However, it is definitely an amateur attempt and just a fun visualization of what the overall movie vibe could be.
