    Cool New Album Cover

    My latest. An album cover for the band Montgomery Moth.
    Space man has lost his way, finds himself in an alien Canyon (Canyon is the album name), surrounded by weird things.
    I did the colors in PS7, and I'm pretty pleased with it, but digital art is still new ground for me, and I'd love to hear some comments from some of the many more experienced digi practitioners here.

    ooh, this has a nice character to it! it looks a little dark, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

    Can you get us a larger view? I know there's details hiding in there.

    ah, it looks like my initial impression of darkness can be blamed on the uncalibrated monitor at the day job. at home it looks much better.

    I still want a larger image though!

    Red face oops

    Well, here i was thinking no one was posting to this thread. i thought i would automatically get an email for each post, neglecting to actually click that option on the screen. Guess I was crying myself to sleep for nothing.
    Anyway, heres a bigger pic.

    Really really nice job, love the piece. My only beef is the lack of contrast. Maybe you were going for this style, but we all know, and realize how powerfull a good light source and a good sense of contrast can be.

    cheers!

    I like it alot! I think the low contrast gives it a great mood.
    Very cool creatures and the spaceman is superb.
    great style!

    thanks jobesu, i too am a fan of the low-contrast.
    however, i can see the sodomizer's point, and I must admit that the piece is in fact lower-contrast than i had originally intended, at least on the value plane. there is, however, something to be said for the contrast that exists between the shapes and sizes of the figures.
    if anything what i like best about the piece is the way the eye is able (forced) to roam about the page. i hate how the pelican's bill breaks that up.
    while i agree that a strong lightsource is a powerful thing, i also find that it leads easily to an image that has the look of a lighting studio. what i usually strive for is multiple light sources of varying intensity. that's tricky to manage tho...
    thanks for the comments.

    no pics

    jobesu,

    i tried to check out your homepage but couldn't view the pics. based on the frontpage image and the blurry thumbnails, it looks like wicked stuff. has anyone else been having trouble with it or is it just me? i'd love to see it...

    Cool work, with great characters! Gotta a sort of a Dulac feel to it, but Dulac never painted anything like this!
