In progress work, any body got any thing for me, I'm open. Top left is going to get a castle or a big animal like a mammoth. I don't normaly do this fantacy "Brian Froud-esque" stuff..so i'm excersizing my ability to leave my comfort zone.
Please MorganDesigns, if you would...
I see a river. Do you know what that means? It's the woman's g**it*l. Then I see flying power balls something with tails. That's s***m. No,no let me continue. The sky in the distance is purple something. It means that the judgement day is close. It practically means that the woman will get pregnant soon, and it's your deepest fear. Then I see a few animals, but they mean nothing.
What?...What?..... Dude Your High, I cant wait untill they kick your ass off of this site you punk. I've seen your posts, and you need to be delt with.
i really like sky and the overall mood of this piece. to me it seems the horizon is a little tilted to the left, which somewhat bugs me. and the perspective on the river seems to be off a little. and i donot like the two guys on the left, if i were you id leave the left side blank of organic beeings. otherwise i really like it . keep up the good work.
just ignore this troll.
nice colors.. the purple/redish tones work very well with the green..
i like the whole athmosphere to it..
Congratulations, Morgan: you've been snot upon by our local troll. Pay him no mind; he is fierce, but tires easily. I think it's something to do with the medication...
This is very nice, with a peaceful, solid feeling. The tilt detracts somewhat from that feeling, however. There's also a problem with that shot of bright light in the lower right corner: it realy sucks the eye over there and won't let go. It would probably help the composition if you were to do something to reduce the attention of the little guy (contrast reduntion, re-placement, etc.)
It's coming along very nice, though. Looking forward to updates!
wel how much you will hate it i have to agree with Paer .... as for 100% honest crits i have this : your horizon is almost in the midle of your "composition" and thats the BIGGEST NO eva ! that light thingies that are supposed to be flying around are actualy disturbing ang give a cheap filter effect to the picture then the fact that no objects are being afected by the perspective is kinda disturbing too (ex. horse , small dudes are all been made front view however you show that they are on dif level .. ) now the sky is actualy verry wel done and the feeling of a sunset is captured wel so the biggest problem will be is the fact that your sly is detailed and good rendered and the rest of the pic looks messy and unfinished ...
and as far as "ban kick" that "punk" ....i mean you suppose to be an artist, if every bad crit taken that way its bad but if every bs crit is taken that way now thats just horrible... if crit is given with good intentions take if its just bs just ignore it ...
this guy didn't criticize me yet except for telling me how much he hates me for "stalking" him and that he will kill me..
i respectfully disagree with eew:
why is having the horizon the BIGGEST NONO EVAR!!!1² ?
i think it really fits well with the rest of the piece..and, i actually like those lighty things that swirl around in the air..
eew... who should hate you for your crit? i dont get it... you didnt say shit like "the river is a vagina, and the creator is afraid of getting a pregnant wife/girl/whatever"
maybe you would understand our reactions on mr paer_j better if you read bullshit like there or there.
make up your own opinion about him... maybe youll still call him sarcastic and a good laugh... some statements probably are, but some others are insulting nothing else. and i dont see any reason why anyone should tolerate such a bad behaviour...
Thanks for the input guys I will take note. As for the other two critics I wont waist my time.
dogfood/Lim/Some one- good stuff I'll post an updated vers. soon.
Here is a Modified version with the helpful crits in mind. Its looking alot better to me. The castle Darker?
And this is the older version to compare the Changes made.
Okay - I like it (psychological interpretations aside )
I will agree with the horizon line comment only to establish a point of focus. A higher horizon line would force focus toward the foreground with the critter and log. A lower horizon would focus more on the sky, dragons and background.
I really dig the colors and mood. The sky is awesome. To punch that up I would suggest a bit more atmospheric perspective. It seems as if the greens and shadows are all the same color and value from fore to background. Colors in the distance lose a bit of saturation and value and tend to be cool, colors in the foreground tend to be saturated and warmer.
The magical effects are nice too (comparisons to biological elements notwithstanding).
Hey Great points Patrick, I think the atmospheric perspective needs to be pushed, your right.
Yeah, the castle could be lighter a bit, to push it back it's looking better = great! Good job man, i like the colors going on here!
Patrick-thanks for the atmospheric perspective tip
Gaussian3d- Yeah the castle looks better pushed back and desaturated.
Thanks guys I'm really happy with the feedback and its effect on this piece.
It keeps getting better each with each tweek.
Version Three makes the most sense considering its a dawn lighting.
DON'T CLICK THIS
Nicely done your third version is a vast improvement over the very first one.
The detail and contrast added to the foreground help the painting out alot.
