Well, it's a good thing for your legs that I always UIR updates in which I have a pic posted... ;)
Nice collab. I like the first pic showing up as a poster, it's a fun little easter egg thing. The figures themselves are well drawn and coloured. The motion on blur on Spidey looks a bit overdone to my eye. This would also really benefit from an actual energy blast from Shocker at Spidey. You could use Dan's tutorial in the Art School for that, or since it's supposed to be sonic vibrations, you could try to play around with some of distortion filters (wave and the like). I just think it'd look cooler if there was SOMETHING there.
Cool job on the background, though the angle of the roof is weird. I get the impression it's supposed to be flat, but to me, the texture and the angle relative to the wall make it look like it's sloped. I also like the puddles. They're a bit plasticky, but they fit the style of the image quite well.
Good job, guys! :D

Pretty cool, nice work guys. I agree with B that Spidey's a little too blurry, but overall I like it.

Great dramatic angle though like B sez, it gets a little funky in alignment. Spidey does get a little lost in the effect but I think it adds to the drama a bit. I'm not so crazy about the puddles, myself. They look more like a water droplets on the page style effect. Puddles don't rise up high enough above the edges to cast strong highlights. The image kicks butt though! The extras are a nice touch too.

Yeah, I was trying to get a faded halo effect on Shocker, but I couldn't figure out how. Like I keep saying, I'm better with a pencil and sketchpad then with a keyboard and a mouse. But distortion filters....have to remember that for the future.
The puddles...yeah, too high, I need to finetune the layer style, I suppose. But since I almost never use the waterdrop style, there's really no point, I think.
And thanks, Chris said he liked the extras too. I just wanna see if anyone can find Batman in the image. Really hidden away there.
And I get to keep using my legs! Happy!

True enough. Actually, although your filter techniques aren't always 100% successful, you get plenty of bonus points for your creative uses of them! :D
