good chow brother! again same problem like your last chow the character is competing for attention with the background, reduce background color saturation bring focus on the character.
What I did here Is I added atmosphere in the background with a soft airbrush and at the same time reduced the strength of the darks which was too strong, then I added some warm color from right because it seems like you have too much of cold going on so it can be a good thing to bring in some warm colors, it might come from a fire or an explosion or something.
Then I used color dodge for the computer monitor to give it a better effect and covered it with a soft brush.
Finally I felt it could have a better impact if I darken the whole image a bit by using the curves adjustment layer to emphasize the character and bring in a more suspicious and intense mood to the piece, watch his butt it's a guy right? so watch out not to draw his butt too feminine. this was all done in photoshop because I know you are using painter mostly right?
Now look how crazy your piece looks man! and I barely spent 10 minutes on it...
render it out and play with the effects at the end when you got the basics down, also don't forget to check your values by turning the whole image into grayscale.
if you want the original PSD file to see the layers and effects I added let me know.
We should do a collab dude maybe do an open canvas session or something.
Whoa I'm inspired to do some kickass tech piece now...
Talk to you soon!
teapo WoW is fun but it takes way too much time, and time is what i don't have these days.
I use an old Mustek scanner i don't remember his number' i"ll get back home an tell you the number...nothing fancy though.
Sycra Thank you
Danny Thank you so much for the help! I saw your comment only after i "finished" and posted in the thread, i almost missed the deadline...phhh...army stuff takes too much of my spare time, so i really didn't finish the pic.
I"ll try to play with the values and the background, it does look so much better in your version.
About the collab- just name a subject and יאללה lets try.
ahh... haven't been checking up on ya ;3 love how the chow turned out and the WIP steps are really helpful. yeah i'm using a mustek scanner as well but not sure if i have the optimal settings for scanning drawings. crazy imagination going on with those last pencil works mate!
I love your pencil work, so energetic!
I quick note on the last chow you posted, don't be afraid to really push the lightning to extremes. I think the piece would be a lot stronger if you'd pick one of the lightsources you have, probably to one from the screen, as the main one and just pushed everything else back. It would make the piece a lot easier to read and strengthen the atmosphere.
