First Timer - Workshop

on: January 13, 2017, 04:57:48 pm
A simple workshop, tried to avoid pillow shading , have I done any better? :)

Thinking about desaturating the background since it will be only decor in game, maybe darkening it might have the effect I'm after.

Great job for one of your first works. I wish I could have started that good.

As to desaturating your background it all depends on your characters. Your colors are pretty decent already, I don't think a little desaturation will hurt at all though. If your characters/foreground start to blend into the background to the point that they aren't distinguishable then you might have an issue.

I made a partial edit to the image to show how sometimes avoid black outlines can help bring some depth to the image. I messed with the table, sign, file cabinet, and the bulletin board. I changed the outlines to instead edges that are lighter/darker depending on the location of the light source (the sun and the lamp). I did shadows on the bulletin board but none of the other objects I mentioned. (the sign wouldn't need any).



Great job and keep up the good work.

One thing I'm noticing is that hanging lamp. Is it supposed to be giving off light? If so, try to rework the lighting around it and use it as a reference point for lighting on other objects in the scene!

@Double7 Oh wow that does add some depth to it , thanks for the tip man, I'll start adding that to my workflow. Thanks for your nice comments!

@MysteryMeat Yeah that light I added near the end, I'll either rework the shadows like you recommended or simply take it out of the scene :)
