    To be honest, it looks too unnatural, but that's just my opinion.

    I like where your going with this...but it doesn't look finished. I think it would be neat if all the skin was that texture.

    That was my thought (about it being too unnatural and not finished) I posted it because I need some guidance on PS... anyone?

    As the title states.....Not so "Koi".

    It is a really neat idea, but back to the drawing board (sorry, pun intended....:lol:)

    Think about how scales appear, and how it would look on a body. The way you have it now, it seems to cover part of the back and some of the arm, and doesn't "flow" with the body.

    To make textures look natural they have to seem like they start and finish naturally, the way skin would. So I would put the skin somewhere else that it would fit more...

    does that make any sense?

    Personally if I was going to try to make this work I would texture more of the skin with the scales and use selective coloring in places although I don't think this shot is ideal for this sort of treatment the pose is too closed to give a real starting point it feels like there is no good place to start and end with the scales while with a more open pose.

    The scales on the back don't really look "scaley" enough if you know what I mean by that. You could also think about trying in on half of your face...the idea just popped into my head so it would take some experimenting.

    I've been wanting to try something similar to this only using a slide projector directly on the model. I just need a model. lol.
