Re: floor Reflections

Once you make, dup and flip the image, use transform (skew), liquify and/or warp to fit the reflection. You'll need to deal with the platform separately to make it fit properly. Finish by painting to touchup details, etc. Your faux reflection will never be perfect, but you can get pretty close.

NM2007, if you select, flip and skew to align her feet, the base of the platform she is sitting on will not align properly since it is on a different plane. My meaning is you'll have to deal with this with separate additional manipulation.
