I am increasing the contrast as you suggested. I also stretched out the Phantom's left wing. I hazed out the ground in the front and increased the darkness of the Stealth Fighter. Good advice, thanks! And I sharpened and increased the highlights on the Phantom. Also touched up the characters a bit.
Things to do-
1. Darken the blue of the sky.
2. Increase the rim lighting on the clouds.
3. Add elevator flap lines.
4. Add more plane insignias.
5. Consider (try) sunlight streaks thru the clouds.
6. Increase the roads and runways and hangars.

Great to see you here, I was just admiring your work. That landscape is awesome. I like the Myst feeling, and later read someone else got the same impression. Yours is one of my favorite entries. And the water...perfect. Can't wait to see it completed! That tough character you made isn't one to be messed with either! Nice skin texture! Keep rocking!

Are you almost done or are you done with it? The sky looks tight dude. Very nice work on that. If you are not done yet, then keep going. I'll be here to cheer up a fellow AAU since i'm finish with mine. Now i can just bombard peoples thread with spams, hehehe.

cheer dude.

I darkened the sky and used Ace4016's advice to make the clouds thinner and spread across the sky. I put blue into them to thin them. Time is running out, if you guys have any other crits send them in cuz they are a lot of help! Now I have to check when the deadline is in California, I think it is a day earlier, anybody know? Now I wish I had about another week to tweek.
I guess i'll finish it tonight and send it in tomorrow, which will be the 17th here.

I'm almost done. Thanks, glad the sky is good.

Old 05 May 2005   #53
I think you guys are 8 hours behind in Cali. So hurry, hurry, hurry. You are almost there bro.

It's !:05 pm here now, Monday afternoon.The 16th.
Arc80-And congrats on the finish! I like the station setting. As I just said on your thread, it reminds me of when I named the Play Station for Sony. I was thinking of the duality of the action of actual movements like in sports and the stationary nature of playing a computer game. In your piece I see a duality between the active minds of the people on the platform and the stationary waiting of being at the station.

The sky looks great, glad I somehow helped. As for more suggestions: mayeb the phantom's camo colors could be sharper in thier transition to each other, looks lkind of blurred. Also, maybe a sort of motion blur effect to emphasize the action going on? Your almost there, and so it the deadline, keep going, you can do it.
Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids.

Thanks dude. I'm glad you like my piece and really happy that you've interpreted a couple of the idea behind it. I wanted to make them feel like a butler. Just standing there and waiting for their master's order, but at the same time, make it feel that they have more connection to her than just your typical MAster & Servant idea.
Anyway, i'm not going to yap a lot. Good luck on the finish and will be waiting.

cheers bro.

I'll get on it tomorrow. The camouflage IS too soft edged, I'll try to fix it tomorrow and hopefunkly do some motion blur too, great crits again...!

I was toying with the idea of having a missile truck in the background fire a missile at the stealth plane, a missile with a long winding, twisting smoke exhaust trail representing an erratic targetting flight as it tracks the crazy flight the dog puts the stealth plane thru...just an idea, don't know if I'll have time to put it in...was thinking of two or three fired missiles actually. What do you think of that?

If you do add the missles I would feel sorry for the dog, poor guy wouldn't have a chance. Also if you do add a missle to the scene, where would it have come from? Keep going, you'll make it.
