Satellite Soda Go!
This is an image I made a couple of weeks ago to promote the rather cool Satellite Soda, a group of artists I joined some months ago. We held on to it for a bit, but seeing how Nov. 1st is the site's one year anniversary, we thought it would be a good time to release this, before it gets too old.
And we've got some art jams running on the forums in tune with the anniversary, so be sure to check those out as well!
The image was made using Photoshop CS for the background as well as several little touch-ups and color correction, whereas I used Painter 9 to color the characters (which were drawn with a pencil).
And I can assure you, that even though one might be able to interpret a whole slew of symbolism/metaphors from this image, none of them are intentional. My main reason for this motive was that I wanted to play with light/dark contrast a bit.
Thanks in advance for any and all comments!
High resolution image here, for those who'd like a look at it.
Also, the art on these boards blows me away, so I'll try and become a regular in the future. For definitely.
looks great, the only thing I can say is that the "Satellite So-" is very subtle. Too subtle? dunno. Looks hot though.
Hey man, really glad to hear you like it. I had tons of fun making it, so it's good to hear. Thanks!
About the Satellite Soda. I was unsure there as well, but I really want the spraypaint to be this bright and vibrant yellow. And since it's fresh, it'll be glinting in the sun, so that adds to the brightness... don't really know what I would do about that.
In the end, I think it reads fine, but maybe not too eye-catching...
this is cool work.. i like the style...
beautiful stuff. my only crit is i would not allow the graffiti near the corners be so high in contrast. a simple layer mask on top would help focus the eye just a little more towards the kids.
props though, it's nice.
this is fun!
very cool style.
no crits here really.
