Fetus Christmas Card

on: December 11, 2008, 08:30:36 pm
Merry Christmas everybody! So here is my story...

I bought one of them folding photo album things that you can put two pictures in (in this case, two 5x7 inch pictures) -- and I also went to the craft store and bought some various colors of nice paper. I will cut the paper into quarter-inch pixels and glue them onto a black background to make a beeyootiful picture.

Now the beeyootiful picture is as follows, but the colors are not right yet (I need to scan all the paper I bought so I can see what actual palette I am working with =P). This is just blocking things out, not that there is room to do much more (I am already going to be gluing for a long time!).

(also it does not need to be perfectly readable at 1x, because remember, the pixels will be quarter inches)

The most pressing question for now then, is how to make the Fetus Jesus look okay. I am not sure He looks close to accurate at this point.
(of course any other suggestions are welcome as well, but we'll see how it looks when I get the right colors and do a bit more work :))



Thanks! =)

Hm, here are some color tweaks (palette is fixed now because these are the colors of the paper that I have bought =P)

I will have to start making it soon -- do you see anything that desperately needs changing? Or have you any incidental thoughts?

Thanks ;)

Well, if you're not intending it to be seen at 1x, I'd suggest maybe posting it a bit bigger.. That aside, I don't see anything wrong, per se. Though, due to the apostrophe in "I'll", the lack of one in "dont" kinda bugs me.

Ack, no, post it at 1x. You can zoom into things here by clicking on 'em.

Something to keep in mind is that the higher the res the more noticeable banding is, so be careful to avoid it!
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)

Oh wow, I didn't know that. xD I suppose it's pretty obvious that I'm new here.

Are you referring to the banding on the baby or on the sky?
(I agree it is pretty bad on the baby =P)
