    I really like the pallet in the 4th one, among other things. would be really nice to see how that one was made.

    Really wonderful stuff you have here. The only thing that really stood out to me was the wing on the ground in the 1st image. It looks as if someone has cleaned and waxed it. it is very shiny while the rest of the plane is covered in dirty from the crash.

    hi to all, and thank you for the nice comments. Yes! some of the paintings are made in SketchUp6 (3D) and then painted on top. And others are just painted from nothing. namely painting 01, 04.
    I do use photo, because there are so much infomation that one can't recreate. I find that this helps me when doing concept art for game environments.
    (Plus I did not do these over night!)
    When using photo I mainly use a "High Pass" in (filters> Others> High Pass).
    Set it to 28,0, and then Overlay or soft light. Paint under it and then paint the color that i like and not and a new color as normal overlay does.

    I Will try to post the 3D base i made for the japaness yard painting...

    I hope I have answered some of your questions.

    (And sorry for my bad spelling and English!)

    All are really awesome, but especially nr. 5. Maybe you could've worked a little more on castle, though, even though it's supposed to have a scetchy feel.

    Real Color wheel

    I like your work.
    I paint 100% on location and developed a color wheel from it.
    I think you will like it.

    If you do like it I have palettes in RGB and CMYK for you to use as an image palette in CS2.

    Hi donjusko
    Thank you for the color wheel. I will try and use it. Always open to try new things. My colur pallet does go wrong some times given that I am color blind.
    (P.s. I'm not kidding, Red/ Green colorblind)
    But anyway I will try it...and thank you!

    Color blind are you. Fine say I. Made for you this color wheel was. The complementary colors are true opposits.

    It has a full range of colors and yellow doesn't go to dark green, it goes to dark brown instead. Cyan doesn't darken to a blackish, greenish color, it darkens to blue, like the sky.
    I can't put the tif cmyk palette on the web, and the file for the rgb pallette is just too large. So.. I have to send it to you in a zip. Having a cmyk palette let's you print without colors dropping out of gamut and the rgb palette is great for the computer.

    I can show you a screen shot of what it looks like on my computer.

    Nice work, Ditlev. I particularly like the steampunk scene, though I find the areas of greatest contrast (and subsequently the areas that draw the eye the most) are the digital billboards, since the red stands out. The design and subject matter are great, but the composition is not telling me what I should be focusing on. The steam-powered exoskeleton is a great idea, but it mostly blends into the background. Perhaps that's as intended, that it should just be more detail for your world, but then I'm at a loss for where to place my attention.

    The cherry blossom scene is absolutely beautiful. There is something in the perspective and the convergeance of the ground plane that seems off somehow, though. Since you did it over a 3-d block model I'm sure it's technically correct, but somehow it still seems like you're looking down on the ground plane too much? Not sure...

    Anyway, wonderful work.

    Phil

    perspective

    While your at it.. could you change the line of the top of the building. It would actually be a slight curve at the center of your viewing angle (not the sharp lines I drew in). I noticed today that I drew in the center line of your picture too far to the right so the left side angle would not be so great, but it wouldn't be straight. both sides would be bending down to the vanishing points The VP's would be way out of your view, normally one VP is visible, the other being 90 degrees out. A normally painted picture includes 60 degrees so often no VP is seen.
    Your front view would not have both sides of the top line in a continous line. I still like your work.

    whoa a double artist post, as much as youre helping him, I always think it slightly rude to post your own art on the artists own post. A link alone would be better i say, or a pm

    Great work man!

    adn his/he r value relation ships are really good
    I was going to mention that hue is only one aspect of color. And i know several other colorblind artists. the power in their work resides in their high sense of value realtionships and saturation. both of which are controllabl e independantly of hue. and are quite powerfull in their own right

    your enviros are lovely . you should try the weekly activity
