Feedback on image

My first attampt at graffiti on a brick wall. I added lighting and texture to bricks then added the graffiti using a brushes I made. I'd like to know whether it looks like the gritty urban scenes of grafitti? is it realistic enough?

thanks for your time

I am no expert on the subject, "or a lot of other subjects" Ho HO , but really, it looks too accurate for sprayed paint on a brick wall. Just my openion of coarse. Great idea to work with though!! Others will reply to you and may have a different idea though. " I have always liked all of your pics!! You do very good work! Best to you..

 Graffiti wall 

It surely looks authentic...I am not sure how a stock graffiti should look like, but you did a great job in photoshop :)

Thank you both Achilles and McKown - Hmmn, maybe I should adjust the brush to splatter more.

Well, I dont know about adjusting the brush. Im going to try and look up some graffiti, should be some somewhere on the internet. But graffiti has got so popular and there a lot of PRO painters into it now that maybe theres some being done which is more like yours.

Looks really good to me. If you are wanting it to look more realistic the only thing I would say needs done is the opacity of the graffiti layer be lowered just a little and maybe slight desaturation. But then again who says it needs to look 100% realistic. good job.

Looks authentic to me.

Great job.

Not sure what Phant means however. I thought a phant was a type of haircut.
