[WIP] Metal stuff

on: December 15, 2006, 12:03:06 pm

Well, i Don't know iff you can call it metal... Did it in purple-yellow first, and thought, hé! How would it look in greyscale?
So started up Graphicsgale and tried it out...
Now the aa color is to light, but it think it gives a good fuzzy look. Removed it on my name though, to make it a tad diff from the rest.
(my name on alot of other forums is nonamenl so...)

Here's the purple-yellow version:



Think I'm gonna finish all 3 versions.
Oh yea, here's another version, this was all in the beginning.

Any idea's? Its all fantasy stuff, and i don't want it to be 1 concept, like these lines...
You may edit  :)
p.s: A friend told me that this is really simple to make with photoshop, i can asure you its 100% paint  ;D
p.p.s: I know its way to saturated, I started out with the thought: lets make an eye-hurting piece. Maybe I will re-do this concept with the colors de-saturated :-P.
(I toned the colors of my screen down to make this  :hehe:)

Why is this so common nowadays? It doesn't seem like an endeavor one would take on if they want critique or if they took the piece seriously. It's like a painter deliberately painting like a four-year-old.

As for it being metal, it looks like it needs some more contrast. Darken the darker shades of grey to add some.

All I can say is that you're totally right.
I'm sorry... But really, I did not painted that bad on purpose...  :-[
This is all just a experiment for me, because normally, i pixel with really low saturated colors...
And I wanted to try out new things.

As for saying its an eye hurting piece, maybe thats just my sick sence of humor  :-\

I'm not saying the grayscale one is bad or the art so far is bad, but rather I don't understand why one would want to make a work of art intentionally 'eye-hurting' or ugly.

You have good potential if you keep working and it's great to experiment, but even in experimentation it's best to keep in mind the fundamentals of art.

Hmm, you're right.
Maybe that's what I've done wrong here, knocking down all the fundamentals...
Oh well, I will keep working on it, think I'll got an edit soon, thanks for the tip about making the darkest shades darker.  :)
