Coloring WIP: another color comp



Here's another stab at color- hopefully tying elements together better.
 
  12 December 2004
I think that flows much better. It definately works.


added this to my watch list...

It looks really good, and the colours do work well together. Only crit. is that I'm getting conflicting messages from the piece, the light blue sky suggests all is well, but we know from the big robot it's not - maybe change the sky colour to something more imposing, I dunno.

draco- thanks for adding me to your list!
Stevetwist- that may be a good thing- what's going on is things ARE good, but they weren't always that way.
 
  12 December 2004
Ahhh, I see (my mistake) - well in that case the colours work really really well.

I thought that the big robot was posing a threat to the little child, so either I missed something along the way or I got the wrong impression from the start.

Look forward to seeing more detail in the coloured version.

Hi Eric,

I very much like your composition and your technique > very loose and blurry but when closing eyes just a bit the sketch gets sharpen. Especially your thumbnail versions look very convincing and convey your content very well. Like andreasrocha I also like the color range you´ve choosen. The diagonal arrangement of your background shape adds some dynamic into the end time topic.

Greetings
Fahrija

great revision of teh colours, it's coming to life. I like the looseness, but has to be balance between clarity of subject matter and painterly approach. Look forward to more

Coloring WIP: color WIP



Here's some colorWIP- the background started.

This is one of my favorite entries in the competition and every update keeps reaffirming that belief.

I love the lil' girl in the FG and the rest of the image is wonderful.

Beautiful work so far!

It'll be interesting to see how you handle balancing out the pastel color scheme (which i'm liking) and the reflective or dull qualities of metal. i think you may have found one way in your color comp you posted second to the last one where there is more contrast in the foreground

Looking really nice, Eric! Sorry for not responding to ytour question you posted, but it feels like you've been working your way through your own solution to your issues. I like the pastel tones you're using, very clam and soothing without being monotone at all. The white scribbles in your second-to-last post, they remind me of grafitti or chalk drawings, which is probably completely different than you were intending (I'm assuming they were supposed to hint at metallic reflection hilights?) Works either wayfor me, and I like the colors and how they come together. The warm ares definitely draw one's eye towards the girl. Did you remove the spaceship behind her? I liked how it was framing the piece.

Anyhow, good luck with it!

cgkrusty-Thanks! Monday will go a lot better after that comment.

Hillartsympho- I'm following the color comp, so the pastel background is meant to drop way back- and the foreground will be high contrast like the comp. I'm going to keep everything else on a layer in above the BG to keep them seperaet while I work on them.

walrus- the scribbles are chalk scribbles, but only on the plate of metal the girl is perched on. The other scribbles are, in fact, MY scribbles. For the comp I worked zoomed out so I wouldn't noodle, those scribbly spots will be metallic glints, more subtle probably.
