    here's just some sketches for me to get down some ideas, and a little bit of a wip.

    going with the biblical idea of the watchers - angels that slept with human girls and were doomed to silence.

    alti: thanks for the kind compliment I love how you laid down your background texture. It looks almost watercolor-y.

    update on page 2.

    does anyone know why the icture i'm uploading on photobucket are looking desaturated comared to the originals? is there some issue with my saving options or with photobucket?
    I never sed it before as i could attach the pictures to the message, but i can't do it in this particular thread ...any idea? thanks in advance =)



    Sorknes: i don't know if this can be of any help by i'll try anyway eheh: i like the colors and the mood with the flying creatures, also the lonely feeling of the watchtower. think there is something wrong with the lake, it should probably reflect the mountains as they seem to be quite near it more thn the sun (judging by the angle of reflection...but i might be wrong with this...) or anyway recede in the distance color wise...as should the whole landscape. The mountains in the back should fade more...as they are quite far indeed. (please correct me if i'm wrong =) ) also maybe you could play a bit with the tower see if you could find some other nice design and maybe with that get some ideas on the whole piece... eheh just some thoughts =)

    Yeah, pepps, I've gotten some other good inputs as well. I have a serious problem whenever straying away from my browns >.< Thanks! Crits and comments are ALWAYS welcomed when it comes to stuff I do, it just makes me better!

    Also, if you have uploaded said picture in, lets say, a sketchbookthread first, you have to change the name on it to upload it again here. Just throw in a random number or letter. I think that might be why you can't attach it here. If you haven't attached it anywhere else in this forum, I have no idea, sorry...

    J.L. ALFARO - really nice concept! perhaps you should change the texture on the ground in the foreground. I also think that you should remove some of the outlines you got going on the ground. GG!

    pepps if you have the image in Photobucket you just copy past the one with the IMG tags into the post. No need for the attachment manager at all.
    if you prefer to use the attachment manager to up load the image you need to go to "Advanced"

    A lot of people have had the Washed out problem. When you Save for web out of PS seems to be the problem. I've taken to adjusting the colour. Ive tried nearly eveytnhing I could think of.

    chaosrocks - for some people in some threads at the bottom it says that they are not allowed to post attachments, and as such the attachment manager in the Advanced section of a post is not there. This is something that I'm sure has been brought up to the admins but I will bring it up again.
    It's odd though, because in my case I can post attachments in most other threads, but none of the ones in the Art Crusades sub section.

    Pepps - perhaps your color config have been messed up .. try shift+ctrl+k to change between different RGB standards... And well, I don't think you should use the "Save for web", instead just do the usual "save as" and chose jpg. There you will be able to get some better quality. Another thing, when I'm converting to jpg I don't use "Embed color profile : -the screen I'm using- ". However, you will have to accept some quality loss when converting though, but not that much.

    pepps Hey man, You tend to get desaturated images if you save for web. kalas is right, what i do to make sure its a decent size for posting is go to edit, image size then make sure you have constrain proportions ticked then resize the image to about 500pixels wide or high depending on which is the largest in the original pic. Save as a Jpeg and then add it to pbucket that way...then you have a nice sized image for web viewing with no loss of quality. Hope this helps.

    Stu.

    thanks for the feedbacks.
    I am using the img tag, but being my images hosted on photobucket, and thus looking washed, i would have preferred to have them attached =)
    I save as a jpeg and if i open the file in Ps it shows no remarkable change. But once i upload it on photobooth the colors are washed like chaos said.


    i don't use save for web, i just save as, but i used "embed color profile". I'll try not to use it next time...see if changes something.

    edit
    sellis: that's what i also do =) ehehe


    about the attachments i'm on the same boat as dose206, can attach in other parts of the forum..the sketchbook for example, but not here =) (neither in the "advanced" options)

    hey chaosrocks, thanks for the offer =) but i've just discovered that the problem lies in my PS wich actually displays colors in a different way...Oo i tried attaching the file in my sketchbook and it shows the same as in photobucket. I'm not really sure what's wrong with Ps =)

    as a side note, i'd need an opinion on my wip. The idea is that these huge creatures where used as watchers to guard the path...so they woud be both watchers and watchtowers. Is it ok, or am i out of topic? =) (wip is in the first page)

    cheers =)

    Chaos, Pepps: I've seen more people complaining here that they couldn't attach an image in this particular area of CA. Probably an effect of the implementation of CA 4.0.

    Hope you're still up for the headhunting Pepps I'm going to start tomorrow...

    A lot of progress going on. Some quick comments:

    alti That's one way of getting in the watcher and the tower. Huge!

    nightblue I love the design of your tower, it's so techie.

    form Ooohh!

    I'm going to get a WIP up, even if it's thumbnails. Trying not to over think this one.

    muffin - perhaps should try to "push" the statue further back.. you could try to loose some contrast (pretty much like u did with the buildings beneath it)

    Hehe, I'm soon finished with mine (starting to get rather bored with it)... so what the h*ll will I do till the 9th... study? >_<

    keep up the good work!
