[C+C] Mega-Vas

on: January 04, 2013, 11:46:41 pm
Hey guys, just found this place from reddit and was hoping you could give me some C+C on this Megaman Vas I did for a friend.

I wasn't sure about the legality of doing this since it was heavily based on this image http://www.gamergirltay.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Mega-Man-Video-Game-Characters2.png (not sure of the original owner).


I'm pretty new  this and it is the first time I've ever done scenery as well so I would love some critique to help improve it

- Mountains colour from brown to a blue
- Removed dithering on mountains
- Removed some dithering from water
- Changed hues and saturation of water to blend it more
- added more foam to water
- added more shading to clouds and moved them around
- slightly reduced size of the clouds to reflect size the mountain
- modified shading on the hills underneath the trees



Things I would love help with is making the sand look nicer, should I add shading to it? Maybe try and create small sand hills?
The forest is another area I want to improve, it just looks like a field of dots at the moment

Cool little idea, im guessing it's Far Cry 3?
Anyways. I really didn't know how much detail you wanted in it, but since you added shading I guess this is right. I fixed the water, because it would not be very deep on the shore line. I also added darker regions to the mountains, and made the forest look more clumped together. The Sand could have been fixed better, so you may want to look back on that. Last thing you may want to rework is his feet, the strap covers over the left foot.

didn't get much time tonight, but I updated the water. It wasn't until you did it differently did I realise it wasn't very good.



here is the picture I used for ocean foam reference

plan is to work on the sand next.

I wasn't sure what you meant by the strap covers over his left foot? does the outline of his legs impede with the detail?

changed the beach and the forest in this one.

the beach I'm quite happy with now, except for the centre area of it. need to be a bit more grainy

I tried making the tree's look more like a large group of foliage, not sure what I think of it, but it is definitely an improvement

clouds will be next
