Dude I love the progression you can see through your concepts. And the last version is really mint (good).

Nice to see you working through alot of issues with the concept. On the last one I would really like to see a little more detail about half way down....just before the shafts of light run out.

:beer: Wicked work tho

Problem with images like that is that they just look too complete :) Maybe add some small details to give impression of scale ? I really love overal impression and hue of Your colours.

11 November 2003, 07:15 AM
hi ! i like it very - mostly forms, light and colour composition - but it seems to me you could add some light to foreground in stage for giving volume to the obgects that are closer to us. Also your idea is great

first try of texturing

tr1cky
12 December 2003, 09:00 PM
If I were you, I'd lessen the volumetric light a bit as it is too overpowering, and instead add more ambient light in the color of the main light source you want (yellow). This'll bring out the geometry better without washing it out. Otherwise cool!

JamesMK
01 January 2004, 01:18 PM
Great lighting going on here, I must say. Will be interesting to see how the finished cabbages turn out (or turn-ip perhaps...)

It seems to lack a bit of depth right now though... maybe the foreground in the top-left part is a bit too busy... (edit - I'm talking about the texturing render a few posts up now /edit)

Shows a lot of promise no doubt!

01 January 2004, 12:56 PM
That's looking heaps better, just a couple of things to watch for. It looks like the detail on the front buds is blowing out, maybe just adjust the lighting. Also I think you need to increase the overall contrast and maybe tone down the Post FX. It's looking great though keep going. :thumbsup:

01 January 2004, 08:59 PM
Looks like what grew out of the particlerain i firsttime saw i took a deep breath trough a coconut...;)
looks like some Microscopic world, cool shot. But I hope you won't leave your fantastic colored scheme now, the athmosphere is fantastic, just think the light is overshot, if the level dims a bit, the colorfull almost flourescent shine of the composition is absolutely awesome.

Keep on rockin' man!

X-tremely interesting! Must be something great in FR :thumbsup:

I think lights and textures will play an extremely imnportant role in your scene. Somewhere may be even more important role than than geometry complexity etc. Hope to see FR Soon ! Great work! :thumbsup:

Hi
I love everything, really!
Just one things if I can say - remember, the subject is a whole background, and should be believable, and therefore I like more the plants in front of a big gate like strucure than this last staff. But as I understand, this was just exercise?
In any case, GOOD LUCK:bounce: :wavey:

Hi again or for the first time.

Your vegtables are getting beautiful. If possible, soften up the blue color from The back, for some god 30% and you have a finished piece. Now, it is a little bit to strong.
In overall, very beautiful and unusual work.

Great image! I really like the feeling of it. I would not wanna see what kind of things lives in that cave, if there even lives anything, except those "cabbages". That image allows the imagination fly freely, the place can be anything. One feeling I get from it is a strong feeling that you are watching inner parts of some huge monster stomach.

I like it alot. Great work!:thumbsup:
