From the Layout that you have I wouldn't use brushing.
Look for a thread in the Graphic Artists section and look up Both Crash's work and Pineapple Enimas work, they might give you some Idea. And definatly check out reps work for some serious styling

Id think gradient maps is what they are called on PS.
Might be all it needs in a layer between the background image and the main render

I rarely use brushes, and if i do it's usually for blending around a render (low opacity spatter brushes, kinda looks like smoke). Smudging with renders with jitter usually works out cool for backgrounds...

Gradients I use a lot, usually over the entire sig then maybe put a copy of the layer render at a lowered opacity over top to sorta make it pop a bit...

C4D's tend to look better than brushes, IMHO, there's lots at planetrenders.net...set them to overlay, color dodge, etc...

I dunno I'm pretty much crap compared to Crash or REP though...

For that Bumblebee one I think I'd lose him on the left side and just do a cool background, he sorta distracts from the focal point, which is the one on ze right...

I agree on the bee.

Or if you really want something. maybe overlay the Autobot symbol into he background.
At least then you dont have 2 of the same type image in it

The Bumblebee sig is awesome man. And I ment use the eyedropper to select colors near the render and then on a new layer set to softlight use a soft brush to highlight him with the colors.. Wink
