Hey guys, here are some new stuff.
I'll eventually get around to slowly post the 5 years worth of pictures my mac account deleted if I muster the courage. I'll do it bit by bit I guess. Hhhhh....
Anyway. I'm back
I posted that a while back but it disappeared with the rest. F*****G hosts taking their server down, I'm doomed. Hope image shack will hold up, never tried that way beffore. Easy enough to upload the pictures, that's always nice.
Thanks for posting. Great artwork. I really like the image inspired by Moebius.
I hope you don't mind two small questions
In the last image with overpass (steps between 7 and 8) you moved from more less contrasty and desaturated palette to more intense one. Do you achieve this more by painting new colors on top or just using levels/curves. I ask this beacause I tend to sometimes start with first colors in similar way. They may seem to look harmonious but very gray and it's sometimes hard push them into something more vibrant without loosing the initial mood.
Also in some of your images the light looks overexposed while the darks are pushed a bit less. Is it done on purpose to make it look good in print or is it just your stylistic choice?
Farvus> it's usually a pass with levels, curves, color and saturation adjustments. I tend to always end up trying plenty of things to fine tune the mood at the end.
As for the darks and the lights, it's just a matter of personal taste, but I usually mix it up.
