A desktop pic I created for posting online. Pattern created in Illustrator and the rest of the image done in Photoshop. Some filters used (Lighting Effects, Spherise, Ripple) but a lot of handwork as well.

Interested in what anyone thinks of it. :)

No, seriously. Nice job!
Getting a glass sphere to look real is difficult. Hope to see more of your work soon.

Excellent glass sphere.
I can`t begin to imagine how difficult it was to create that image as accurately as you did. I suspect it would convert to a stereoscopic image with equally dramatic results.

Looking good! Maybe a little more light in the shadow? Some very strange effects happen in the shadows cast by spheres, many times not what one would expect, depending on the light source, etc... Love the background.

When I first saw this, it was so realistic I figured you'd used one of those fancy automatic rendering programs. But, NO, you did this the HARD way!! :) Impressive. Excellent job!

Love the sphere! I use PS only and man it is very, very hard to get the result you have achieved! Good work!:clap:

Looks great:

sphere shading and high lighting is exceptionally well done.

Perhaps the amount of distortion of the background pattern as seen through the sphere, does appear less than one would expect.
