First of all I am not trying to sound like a jerk, but I am going to be honest abrage...that one just dont do it for me. I like the idea of it. It just doesnt go together that great. The background seems too bright/ plain and I am not sure what that red around Ortiz is supposed to be? Again not trying be a jerk but I also think the cut could be a lot better.
Here is what I would suggest (if you want my suggestion).
First clean up the cut of Ortiz. The bat is very jagged and around the visor could use some touching up. Next the background. Use the same pic, but this time add some different brushing, blending and lighting to it. Last I would take that red shadow or whatever it is behind Ortiz out. If the background was darker that red shadow may work, but since its a very bright background the red really stands out. Again I am VERY sorry if I am sounding like a jerk. Trust me I am no expert myself. I am always learning/ trying new things and I know you are always trying to get better yourself, which is why I am offering my thoughts and ideas. Take them and use them or just ignore them. Either way I wont be offended. Btw I like your Loney one. Its simple, looks good and is clean. Nice job.
