NICE! alti is back.
great piece - I really love the ambiguity of your moods - very mullins like sketches! Textures and Perspective amazing. Just a little nitpicking: I would expect a bit more detail and clear decissions in the very foreground..
Other than that - great job man, as always.
hey glad you dig the sci fi goodness, as work has me doing alot of steampunk stuff atm.
lewiston> thanks , i think its the chains throwing the scale also, like the more i look at it the more it annoys me, unless they are massive chains.thanks for the crits always appreciated.
nephilim> cheers, oh i know the primes are serious baddass, i'm doing some ship designs to illustrate the sheer amount of baddassary they are.
Dragonspit> hey thanks i'l pop afew into the environment thread once i got afew in the same theme, and afew wips too.
as far as the piece goes, could use some more clarification as to whats what.
I would agree with this.
At first, I was attracted to the bright colors and values, and the heavy texture. I love texture like this - it's hard for me to pull off, personally...so maybe that's why I'm finding it so nice!
Really, though, there isn't much depth to these pieces. Yes, there's texture. Yes, there's value and yes there's a range of color...and I can somewhat tell what's in the foreground and what's in the background...but barely. And the background doesn't seem to have any variation in depth - it's just a flat wall of texture. The only way I can tell it's in the background is because the colors are lighter, slightly. I would suggest employing "smaller" textures, higher and more precise value ranges, a blur....etc. to help the foreground be very clear against the background, and to give the whole piece a better range of depth.
awesome man! Im reading pandoras star these days and ozzie and orion just got through the forest! perfect timing. This is a great sketch. youve truly portrayed the cold mood that hamilton sets in these regions. It's an awesome book by the way.
Don't give up too much about the plot in your texts man! I'll be watching these pics. and I'll be reading.
