Line Art or Model: Bit more detail



OK, just had time to spend an hour or so adding some more detail. I repositioned the small fish, too. Hopefully they won't be a distraction now. More tomorrow :)

Damn, now the forum's compressing my images like a mad thing! Sorry about the quality but the upload procedure has reduced the file from 120Kb to like 50Kb, taking out all the detail in the process

It still looks quite fantastic.


I dig the concept. Its terribly simple, but it really works well for this scene.

The subtle rainbow is fantastic, it's a magical scene! It really works for me, but for some reason I thought the old man was carving a fishing pole which could be more interesting than just fishing. Like maybe he noticed the fish in the sky and started to prepare to catch them? Or what about a sort of kite-fishing-pole?

Good luck, I really like this scene. It might be what one would expect to see in the competition, but it's got such a unique mood that it really stands on its own. The only thing that is a little off to my eyes is the yellow barn. I'm guessing that you wanted it to blend in more with the grass, but growing up in a farm community I always sawa dark red or grey wood barns. Anyway, keep it up!

drewfarr - Thanks

StuntMan - Thanks for the suggestions. Trouble is, he's caught two fish already I'll try a couple of things with the barn and see what happens.

Looks like your angler has better watch out for the shark, that beast is flying low... getting ready to turn and swoop down maybe?

I'm in love with the 'stormy and sunny' light you've given to this piece, surreal and perfect.

great start to the challenge and a really interesting concept, what kind of brushes do you use in painter? i love the program but sometimes find the brushes i use tio be a bit unweildy but you seem to have a nice balanbe between a painterly look but controlled use of the brush.

One more thing... you might be able to put in some cloud shadows on the ground to further show depth and break up the big yellow spot on the ground. It'd also lend itself well to the stormy feel, having sun shining through on tiny spots and not everywhere.

i always had a strange relationship with fishing, although i never was a frequent fisher i always felt that in some parallel universe i was made for it. then again i perceive myself in many roles, but i guess that fishing is the only recurring one.i really like this piece because of this fact, its nostalgic but yet still full of wonder and mystery. defiantly one of your best works.
