Hey

Hello, and Merry Christmas.
This is however not the correct section to post a general What's up?

Do you have any work to show, or a website link?

Cheers,
Neil

Monkey

Give a monkey photoshop CS4 a HD cam, Zbrush / Vue and the latest greatest computer on earth and you get lots of the showreels I've seen over the years. Horrendous unbalanced attempts at emulating...

Church

I think it would be nicer, if you turned the building to make it look more dynamic, and make it a little smaller in the woods.
Looks a bit big to me with very open plain faces - making the scale...

Yes, when you put the two together the original photograph shines out as being amazing.
Making your matte look quite badly composed and lit in a confusing daytime and evening light - both at the...

I'm just making it up as I go along. I feel a bit defeated by this image.
I'm chasing something in my head that I can never realise.
I think I should just start something new and stick this thing...

Hmm, seeming as the first thing I did was disable all the buttons on my Intuos 3 - I'm not sold.
I've worked at home on the Intuos 2 for a long time, and that was more useful to me.

Show us some more, as it stands this image is a little flat. It looks like it just has a midground and a background, with nothing linking the two and a very flat composition.
You also have two huge...

Nice image, but looks over saturated on my screen.
I'd darken the left side of the image and remove the blue sky, replacing it with the gray orange colour.

Give it a try - it might look more...

Awesome

That is really good work.

Did you colour pick from the original photo as the colours seem spot on for the lighting.
It's useful for remembering what colour range to pick from in future paintings....

Finding the middle

Going for it

Cheers for the reply - my 21.3 inch Cintiq is on its way!
At a much higher price than if I lived in the US!
Damn.

Does anyone who has the cintiq have one next to a CRT.

Maybe I should, it might be more entertaining than...

Never feels like they are right.

Great

Looks amazing, although the castle is lit strongly from the front, but the sun is behind it on the left.
Perhaps a bit too saturated too (colour wise) - reminds me of a disney illustration of a...

This is a canyon for a sci-fi scene to be built in 3D.
Any ideas to make it more interesting?

Light

It should be casting some shadow above itself as it has a metal top.
