Sorry about this.

First thing I see is this filmgrain, which is not necessary IMO ;) And little suggestion for the plate: boundary between canyon and desert looks not right. Also, agressive colors of buildings do not help in blending them with landscape ;) Keep working:wip:

PS I see pics only when I hit "reply" button :shrug:

Any Comments Please....

as for the blending of the canyon and desert, don't know what to do!!!!

I assume You have it all on layers, so best solution would be using some rough, textured custom brush for masking, along with some brightness adjustment.

Azazel yes is in layers...
one more question, wich section should I change section 1 or 2 or both,



04 April 2003, 04:46 PM
Section 2 first, but some tweaking on section 1 won't harm, either. You can find some nice rough brushes here ( (it's link to thread on eatpoo forum ;) )

I would try to fix it with photoshop, but i was thinking to model something like a platform or loading bay in section 1 or little comunication building,,, unn running out of time !!!!:surprised
