Object Reflection

Hi,

I've got many images to add realistic reflections over a flat surface. But they are not square like a software box, instead they are rounded base or irregular base, like the figurine attached.

How do you do this kind of reflections?

I tried with "duplicate image" --> "flip vertical" --> "transform warp" but the results are not good.

what would be the steps to get results closer to reality?

Thanks!

I painted with white color in dodge mode and added some gaussian blur(1-3%)

Re: Object Reflection

I think OP wants a reflection on the surface that the model is sitting on (like drop shadow).

Re: Object Reflection

good starting point, but eveything has to be reflected, you cant just copy paste it. 1st give away is the symbols and highlight on the base part of the statue.

Re: Object Reflection

Selection, flip vertical, liquify tool, few layers of gradients + a mask with random painted black/soft/thick lines treated with motion blur

Re: Object Reflection

Aleksman71 could you explain the steps you did in your example?

Chillin, your sample is good, just I find difficult to work this reflections with Liquify. Plus I've got many images to do.
