It's good but I'm not scared of clowns at all and there are no spiders, so title is a little presumptuous.

I don't understand how this got DD.
Step 1: dress up and photo models in extremely generic pose, no expression
Step 2: place them over a background
Step 3: use edgy downloaded smoke brush preset on a layer behind the woman, smudge smoke to create claw-like effect (on the right there)
Done.

Additionally, here's a few reasons why this is amateur
The woman casts no shadow, except parts of her smoke (coincidentally the parts that were most easy to draw shadows to)
The characters are misaligned in regards to the floor (observe the woman's feet)
The colors are raw from the photoshoot, no touchups in terms of contrast, color correcting, filtering, etc.
Last but not least, project lacks any innovation. It's a kid holding the most generic kid-toy in the world, and a clown with edgy smoke doing a Scooby Doo villain-esque pose behind him.

Now to give credit where credit is due, props for taking the time to begin your projects in the real world, not just sit down behind the computer and draw some stuff up. It's very good to not be lazy, which working with models really tells me you're not. Good job on that.
The peice Scavenger of Human Fear is much much better, it may be straight up but the production screams of being several steps above that of the piece above.

Hopefully there's something to take to heart here, apologies if it's harsh
Keep going, you're doing good

Hey Hattersin,

I'd like you to know that this shot looks exactly as I pictured it in my head which is incredibly rare to achieve when i'm not the one taking the shot ^_^ 

Happy to get detailed criticism even though it wasn't requested but right now I'm not looking to alter this shot in any way nor do I plan to do this kind of shots in the future where your suggestions might alter my ways as a model.  

Cheers anyway, 

Drac
