ok here is a visual demonstration of a use for a filter

btw clicking the image will let you see the effects better

first: take your image and fit it to your canvas as you see fit, i centered mine cause it fit the picture better. make a new layer and apply it


2nd: go to filters at the top and go to gaussian blur. as you can see i set mine to 1.1 setting. apply


3rd: go to the bottom right corner for your layer options: choose "lighten". this makes a sort of haze appear an makes everything kinda shiny and a smidge blurry


4th: this isnt a step actually its just a screen of how it looks with nothing done to it cause-


5th: i selectively erased the non bright parts of the person and the parts that are kindve "sticking out" towards you, for better depth perception.



this is just one use of a single filter, there are many other ways to change and manipulate filters.

i hope this helped somewhat, ive never tried doing this before

Latest update. It always looks better before I save and decide to upload :l

Anywho, most obviously I fixed the fuzzy clouds thing so he's more prominent. Still not completely satisfied though really.

I also added some highlights to his mask. Open for critique as always

Edit: Thinking I need to stop using black clouds, or make them darker or something. They're coming off as grey

You weren't trying to adjust brightness/contrast, were you?

I was, but it was on a different layer. This image is somewhere at like 12+ layers now.

Adjust the contrast would actually probably help. I'll look into it when I'm inspired again

brighten the red visor and dont make the top of his head so black, it looks "fake" if that makes any sense.

when you do something like this you want to make it seem as if his is a very day occurrence for him, like hes in the "zone" so to speak

/ramble

also try making it less taller with a border, i think that might help some too

That's why the clouds turned gray in the first place.
