View Full Version : Shipwrecked

04 April 2006, 01:40 PM
man, im hesitant to post my work here.... so many talents! i hope to receive some useful critiques and comments on this little piece i am working on!
I want to create more depth and detail but i am not sure how to.... working with light etc is challenging. i also plan to add another element into the picture on the right, a ship/shark/alien/thunderbirdsisland/whatever. :)
thanks in advance

Don't be shy,...frequenters here are kind!
I like your comic style, and I think in the color progress, it will be nice to keep it..
So, maybe you have to work with simplicity (for ex, joins betweens diff parts in clear lines, and not to much, or not at all realistic material )
For ex, the island is a bit blurry for me...
To have depth, try to invert the blue on the sea (foreground becomes background..)
It is just my opinion!
Perhaps, in general work on it like a Flash anim style(software)...if you like this kind
Hope you understand me

Grass has a strange colour, but I like the character!
Go on, nice image

another update, i like working on this picture :)

anyone has any comments? i would like to receive some feedback on this, since it's my first image in photoshop. previously i worked with painter, but i wanted to give good ol' adobe a try.

Try to add more shading to the island and maybe make the bottom of it more round to make it look less flat. Actually the island looked better in the first image. Try to keep the shading when you add the grass. I agree with dEDa about the grass color.

decided to remove the island completely... it was just not getting right.

hope you like the new composition!
i wouldlike to thank you guys for commenting on my work! it really helps me!

another update from me!
i know my work isn't half as good as you guys here, but i am getting more and more satisfied with this image!!! hope to receive some comments on this! i feel this picture has progressed quite a bit and i am proud of it! i still am not totally satisfied, but i can't put my finger on what's wrong... some tips?
thanks in advance!

added some more details, reflection in the water, and started to work on a sail, on the right of the picture, balance seemed to be thrown off by the boxes on the left. let me know what you think!

Well the only thing I really see is the shadow underneath the guy sitting on the shipwreck wouldn't really be there if the light source is coming from his left.

I like that you removed the island, the ship makes for a cute addition.

What's "No Shark!" supposed to mean? I cannot tell other than maybe the shark is trying to be funny... but it could just be I havent had enough coffee this morning.

i think the shark is supposed to be funny, but well, i dont know... hehee

the shadow is not really right i guess, will fix that! thanks!

I like post #7 the best - it is simple but fully conveys the humour of the situation.

I like the concept with the boxes etc. I also like the clouds very much ^^. The only thing I can think of is that the shark's fin is too round in my eyes. I think it needs to be more flat. But it can be I'm the only one with that problem, so dont take it too serious ;)
