Final Coloring: The Messenger



Now the latest update. I'm still working with almost all parts of the picture. I added some coloristic mask but it seems that the left part of the picture bacame a little bit to heavy.
The plan to fix it: I'll paint a small building in lower right corner, where I left now the place for stairs. Still much work to do and only few days left, I will have to cut working with final details before 15-16 or I'll be late with uploading final image :( Damn...

Very nice work! I really like the way it's turning out, although I miss the color that you had in the intitial concept sketch. Great work nonetheless.

Really nice image, especially your colors. Looks almost 3D.

The prospect seems to me is slightly deformed. Especially noticeably on the left building. Try to check up it having turned a picture mirror across.

Work is magnificent! Very good light!

This really is a beautiful piece! I love the details you keep adding as you work.

I wish I could pend as much time in this stage, I might like my work better lol I seem to spend forever in the rough stage.

Great progress

If I can suggest one thing the ship on the right is too monochromatic... maybe some verry small color touch will make it more interesting... small lights, painted symbols, cables, anything...

Agree with KaleN, that will be nice to see some closeups...


Anyway this is a grand piece of art from far

Final Coloring: The Messenger



Here's another update. I took some more attention on detalis of architecture and city behind. I also added few new bulidings and so on.

Nomad-I'll work on ship today evening tommorow morning. There will be some more detail on it and I'll break its 'monochromaticy' ;)

Thumbs up

WOW! That's an amazing peice of artwork. The details are amazing. I have a couple of suggestions that I think would take this peice over the top. First, I feel like I am falling off the peice of artwork. I think that is because of the strong perspective that you have chosen which I think is great. I think what would help is to make the mountian in the far lefthand corner larger and bring it up about half way up the ship. The second suggestion is to overlay this sky with a subtle romantic sunset. I think it would help with the color issue and and help explian the long shadows that you have going. I did a quick overlay of your peice with these suggestion and will send it to you if you would like.

Good Luck!
