I separated the bevel and emboss highlights into a layer and offset the layer upwards so it would more accurately depict where the light was coming from. I also softened the highlights a little and adjusted the color and size of the stream (Fig.11).

At this point I was almost finished with the illustration and it was time to incorporate a background. I decided that I would use a real photo of a kitchen to serve as a backdrop for the warring bots as that would add to the realism of the bots themselves. However I immediately saw that it wouldn't work as the photo was too overpowering in its details (Fig.12).

I tried a heavy lens blur on the image and it looked good so I added a marble texture to the lower part of the picture and blurred its edge. Now I had a nice counter-top. To further integrate the counter-top into the image I brushed some white streaks on a layer over the marble texture and ran a small hard edge eraser through it. I added dark scratches to the war-torn counter to add to the feel (Fig.13).

I added the final touches like the shadows cast by the bots and a slight reflection. I moved the toaster's shadow lower on its right side to give the illusion that his right feet are off the ground and he is about to do a dodge move. I put in some minor details such as the markings on the side of the toaster and I finished off the image by adding a Levels adjustment layer to enhance the contrast.

And I was done (Fig.14)!
