    Cardinal Draschaounteaunt

    probably you have enough of grand space opera, but here's another one. hope you don't mind. i'll be happy to read some comments.


    cgtalk entry page

    image itself:
    Cardinal Draschaounteaunt

    and a short story i've made up:
    "Cardinal Draschaounteaunt is getting back home on the deck of his cathedral ship. Although he sees a Nebula destroying his World he's not afraid. He's a believer. He knows he will go to hell..."

    Beautiful work. Great sense of space. I love the ship. (Like the old film grain effect )

    Yepp, I'm a believer - that's sure got my imagination running.

    Some constructive crit to come with - It feels like the perspective on the city and the air ship are aligned to the same vanishing up to the left. Perhaps if you vary the vanishing point of the ship a little more, say 15% degrees, so it faces us alittle more...? Not that this would make the picture better necessarily but it would show off your perspective skills better and add more variation to the picture. I also feel that they are abit high up, like in the stratosphere - personally i would block the horizon view on the right with some distant clouds.

    The cloud perspective feel a little off in relationship to the earths perspective if you imagine that the clouds are sitting on a sheet of glass over the earth.

    Great piece! I downloaded it and added it to my inspiration archive, hope that's ok with you. Thx for posting it!

    best entry i've seen so far.. great contrast and colors.. i really dig those "noise" things you did with the pic. and i love the ship's angle.. slightly tilted towards the viewer.

    magnificent.

    What did you use to color that?

    Is it Photoshop or real paint?

    If it is Photoshop, are you using any special plug in?
