Well first of all i would like to tell i havent finished any of my thread and this is the one i really would like to! So i work hard and do not make inpossible aims :)

c&c welcomed

Hmm... very interesting, I'm working in greyscale now to understand light and form interaction(and to keep it simple lol :rolleyes: )

Here I instantly see the importance of that theory, the rocks which get reflected light on them seem extremely well done... I checked your otherr threads, there's definite improvement in your quality and finesse. Very interesting.

It looks like it's going to be great too btw. :thumbsup:

Oh yay! Thanx a lot! These words are inspire me :)

About grayscale... hmm one time i tired to use it but its not my style.. i have problems the colorize after the finished picture(with the gray pic).

Hmmm one other thing. In perspective the further things are lighter and blurier(? i dont know how to spell it) any idea how can i achieve it? Just take a big brush with a lighter color(or white) and a attack the rocks with low opcity?

I like the rocks too. Man you have such a good idea to study light like this. Everything seems to be in place so far - I love the silhouette of the shanty shack especially!

Keep'r going!

Thank you MattVogt!
The idea of the light study wasnt in my head first of all, but now i realised need a lot if brain activeting to make it realistic. Grr a lot of work needed on it...
Well about the shanty i will add some details on it a little bit of light and thac all, i will leave it in the silhouette style :)
Thanx again the kind words

An update. Need some help. About the dinamic of the picture. at the last update the picture was unbalanced. The right side was too "stressful". I added an other shanty to the other side of the brigde too, well... i donno.

Need some tipp

:cry::cry: Still have the problem!!! Please someone heeelp!
Isnt it too undinamic?

ahh an other little update... Really hard to finish these rocks!


08-31-2005, 04:38 PM
Well, maybe it's undynamic because you haven't aded the full horizon yet? I think attacking it with some delicate big brushing to add depth and atmospherics would really help, and adding a haze in the background towards the horizon too, a really narrow band of lighter colour. :)

It's going well I think. :thumbsup:

Oooo! Good idea, i completly forgot the bg.
The horizont line sould be a lighter blury line, doesn't it?
Oh and a new idea, some bird to the up-left empty place, and some sweet cloudsto the bg (i havent made any cloud before, i hope i will be able to).

Thanx for your help jmBoekestein!!!

Great lighting and nice colours, well done!

I don't like the silhouette-structures as much, though. I guess you're still working on those aswell? :D

09-02-2005, 11:30 AM
Oh well! I had a feeling some people wont like my silhouettes, i have a terrible stupid jungle craze, u know, these suspension bridge and these wooden silhouettes etc. Any other idea would be nice to replace these things. Maybe a man, or something?

If you like them just keep working on them. I would suggest making them lighter. They both are the darkest colors in the picture, including birds. You could use a fact that the smaller one which is more far away is lighter than the one that is "near us".

I like idea of the picture. Very nicely done shading on rocks.

Horizont line and lighting was already mensioned, so I'm not going to repeat it.

Keep it up :thumbsup:
