    EOW 197

    Hi everyone

    first time after very long absence from CA - travelling for more than 2 years, missing real big art dearly haha - and just two quickies, one in colored pencils, one an acrylics piece to find the mood. Kinda going with the pure environment here I guess.
    Not sure whether I can pull it through since I am a busy bee these days.

    I feel like tiling these takes away from some of the individual moods, but I guess it helps to see what pops
    I think the one in the middle right column as it is clearer it is a sandstorm, but I love the cool to warm transition in the gray and really dig the early morning mood in the middle left. Keep that one and use it somewhere else for sure!

    I spent last night working on a rough 3d model to set up the composition. May bring some elements into the foreground and change to portrait orientation.

    WIP. Kind of lost the sense of scale I had with the early thumbnail. Gotta work that somehow back in.

    Dayle I like the idea hope in the final you add a little more to the composition
    Android 411 the machine in the back looks way too flat and out of place fix it a little
    prepsage great idea just add more value and depth to the pic

    Turns out I'm not that good at refining final (I think or maybe not)

    @Android
    I think it has come out quite nicely in the end. Couple of things to suggest are:
    1.The consistency of shadow and lighting overall. You have combined both hard edged and soft edged shadows in a way that doesn't feel consistent across the piece and vehicle in particular. There should probably be a cast shadow from the vehicle on the ground and dust..this darker value would also help drive the composition add a bit of depth and break up that really bright midground to the right a little.
    2. The walker in the back looks wonky...


    @varguy
    I like the perspective and feel of the piece. You could add a few repeating elements from the foreground (the plants, Rock features). going back into the distance but scaling them down. You could add another smaller vehicle or birds or something recognizable but smaller being caught up in the dust. You could imply the relative scale of the dust and keeping the size as it is but pushing it back into the distance by bringing in some blue, perhaps have some landscape features being obscured by it as well.

    Hope that helps! :0

    Some brilliant stuff here. Haven't participated in about a year but I thought i would chip in

    Not finished with this yet, definitely needs some work, any crits welcome.


    Also If anyone can help me with a possible setting problem. When I uploaded the jpeg of the image, there is a significant colour palette change to the original image the yellow tint becomes much more prominent) not sure if i'm exporting incorrectly but never had that problem before.

    Hey, I like where this is going. Looking at it I feel the urge to crop a fifth or so off the bottom to tighten up the comp and accentuate the horizontals a little more. There are some tangents with the flag and the background so I think fixing those would help with the depth and focus. Not sure what you'd do about it but there is a lot going on in the right hand half of the image and lots of empty space on the left...maybe play with the foreground element and switch sides to frame the piece better?

    About the colour palette change, have you switched to a non colour managed browser by any chance? It actually makes a difference to colour rendering! Firefox (by default) and chrome (with settings) can colour manage well...IE doesn't by default I think? have a google on that anyways and see if that helps?

    Cheers Monkeybread i will have a play around tomorrow with all of the things you suggested, think you may be right about cropping the bottom of the image.

    By the way i'm using Safari so don't know if that effects the image colour

    I totally gave up on my old painting, it just didnít felt like I was coming anywhere with it, even though I worked a lot with it.

    So I change my concept to a more dramatic scene I guess. A lot need to be fixed of course, so if you guys have any critics to give, please donít hesitate.

    Leaping on in here, its been an age since I last did one of these, it was tricky to try and find my approach, though not as tricky as it was a couple of years ago .


    The top one I spent the most time exploring - more doing random shapes then seeing what I could see than specific scene building, tbh, which isnt a technique I really like, but does help take away the white canvas sometimes.

    I started to get a little paranoid about ..well, its not exactly close to the brief, and the composition isnt planned out or anything, so moved on to a couple of (not exactly that different from each other if I'm honest) alternates which didnt really do much for me either, so I moved onto some studies from ref to try and get me in a sandy mood.

    Still have to ponder more, but my problem is more 'whats the story here' than anything!

    This may be a final, I'll probably go back and do more corrections when the finals thread is put up. I feel like I should add some color to strengthen the mood, but I have no idea where to begin.

    I'm absolutely loving the variety of submissions in this thread. I wish I was qualified enough to give everyone the crits and praises they deserve.

    Edit: If anyone could point in the direction of a solid tutorial / guide on how to add color to an image with set values, i'd give you many lovings.

    The Sandstorm in the Hourglass

    Here's a rough sketch of my scene. The Magi escapes the sandstorm by trapping it in an hourglass. He is able to harness it's energy to be unleashed at his will.

    Have been adding details and playing around with the colors since my last post.

    Feels like the painting is pretty close to a end, so I donít think that I will give it to many hours before I call it final.
