This is what I thought of when I read the 'Film Production Design'
Mainly I thought about what would be used best for color and lighting.
Photoshop 1.2 hours. I think i want to expand on this idea someday. I really like how it came out, all moody and all.

10 mins Wings 3D for basic shapes and perspective.
1.5 hours photoshop with mouse

Finally back from vacation....really missed my internet.

OpenCanvas1.1 :: 1hr :: WPE
PhotoshopCS :: 15min :: levels, reflections.
~edited :: gave it a glow +5min OpenCanvas1.1
here is the previous version before the edit


GrizzlyBrice :: I like it a lot. The only thing I would change is to make the queen look more like a female. It kinda looks like it has a beard or something. Maybe some breast highlights would help.
ElysiumGX :: Nice,,,, a mouse....thats tough.
DrawMonger :: sketch looks great.
robinayles :: Funny.

Sorry, only had time for the queen...
(you could see it as a production design for a very dull throne )

PainterIX, phshop, 2,5h

cheers guys!

Art2, fantastic lighting!! what do you think of painter 9?
  10 October 2004
Art2, man, I'm sorry, please forgive me, but what the heck...this is the best piece I've seen from you so far....this is absolutley positively outstandingly brilliant!

What the hell!

C'mon...tell us something more about it! It's just too brilliant really! Brilliant style, brilliant execution, brilliant posture....I'm fcking blown away!

Thanks guys! That's too much praise really, I'm blushing...
I still have lots to learn regarding light.

Drawmonger: I have Painter8, this I made with the demo of 9. What really stood out is the speed. In my eyes worth the 147euro upgrade. So I'll be upgrading soon
At the surface it just looks like 8, but I haven't explored every bit of it yet.
I heared Ryan Church finally switched from version 6 to 9, because he thought it was worth it. That's gotta mean something, heh?

Taron: dude, what's there to tell? I wanted to make a black queen, the rest I decided to make up as I went. The canvas was a lot bigger than what you see now. But I just didn't have the time to complete the rest of the room. I definately wanted to add volumetric lighting, because I thought I should push my boundries. Just curious if I could pull it off.
I wasn't satisfied with the final result in Painter, so I called in the help of Phshop. Played with the levels a bit and achieved the final result.

Still feels a bit like cheating really :(

Cheers fellas!

Taron: 8min ? Sillhouettes are fun, aren't they.
