Its' free and it takes less than 10 seconds!
This is intended to form the centre of a larger design, which will probably be based around a variation of the same pattern. Comments please!!
Scetchbook: View the exhibitionist's stuff.
It does seem to be a nice design. Also, it looks very professionally done.
As a graphic, it looks somewhat interesting. I can't comment on the context of it, because you've provided none.
I'd be personally interested in knowing the details of what program you used, what your process was, and how you applied this design, to accomplish this so far. Beyond the 3 seconds I spent acknowledging that it looks interesting, and the extra 5 seconds I spent looking at the pretty girl who posed for you (okay, 10 seconds), you're not showing us anything of interest, or anything of substance.
I don't know what kind of comments you're looking for on a cropped piece of something that's incomplete. I would hope that you at least include us in on the much more interesting details of your process, maybe showing us step-by-step visuals on how things developed? Of course, we all understand that you'd be blanking out all the naughty bits on the pretty girl you used.
So, beyond the novelty of seeing a portion of a cropped section of a larger piece of something that you're not showing us, what do you wish for us to comment about?
I'm hoping to see more.
Thanks for the comments folks! OK here's some more info about this piece:
This is a personal project, really a learning piece where I'm trying to stretch myself and use functions of Photoshop that I've not used enough before.
The entire piece was created using Photoshop 7 and a Wacom Graphire tablet.
The background came from earlier experiments with Photoshop: An abstract doodle in one of my small sketchbooks was scanned, flipped around, mirrored and bits were sampled and multiplied, swapped around, subjected to various filters and small enhancements (ie. bits were picked out for highlighting or shading, over- or undersaturating etc) which left me with a small collection of related pattern designs which I kept for future use.
Looking at one of these patterns recently , it looked like it could use a figure embedded in the centre, so I experimented, tweaking the design using the Liquify filter. Then I decided to make it a full-blown girl embedded in the machine.
The girl in the machine is a composite: The face, arms and legs all came from different sources (the arms from a CD-ROM of victorian porn, for instance!!!) and once they were spliced in, resized and the image flattened, were heavily overpainted to match each other in colour, texture and lighting. The girl's "Space Pants" are a shrunk-down sample from the background design, distorted for perspective and re-shaded for scale.
The version presented here as a WIP isn't cropped down, but will be incorporated later as the centre of a larger design (which I haven't done yet! When it's finished I'll repost in the "It's finally finished!" forum)
Anyway, here are some of the ancestral pieces....
go futuristic/celtic with it ^+^
Here's an update of the alien machine/girl picture with more of a background and a lot of tweaks here and there. I ain't finished yet! Later I might change the machine. Or the girl. What do you think?
I think this is a great concept, but for me what's really detracting from the piece is the pixelation/warping/blurring around the edges (it looks too much like bad jpg compression). I really want to let my eyes get lost in the detail, but those blurry areas are really killing it. I really like your color choices though!
co0l desighn, ths for share
This is a pretty crazy cool design, but I have to agree with some of the previous points.
The warping blurring is really quite distracting, and not helping the feel of the piece.
One thing that stands out is that she doesn't have a chest. Its flat as anything flat could be.
While I hate to say it, she seems totally out of place in the piece. Too relaxed and chill like she's gonna ask me out to beers later.
"Wanna grab a beer?"
"Sure, aren't you kind of trapped in there though? How do you pee?"
Her head and torso are enveloped but her arms and legs are free. To do what exactly? Are you gonna add more crazy stuff to them shes perhaps more enveloped by this.. stuff? I feel like I'm looking through a kalidescope.
The rendering on the girl (if it is drawn) looks fantastic!
