Thanks, all! Glad you like how it’s come out. There’s one more thing I’d like to try with some key-lights, think I’ll give it a shot this weekend. Either way, looks like I’ll be uploading the real final image sometime next week, before I go off to E3. (Hey, with so many game artists around, who all is going to E3? Anyone want to meet up?)
GhostInTheMachine - Sorry, office’s full! No, seriously, I just can’t see squeezing in more coworkers. Even as is I had to make them disproportionately small just to get in the three I have!
Lilya. Tris, & Xric - Thanks!
Wil - That makes sense. Oh, yeah, I did at one point talk about adding some post-noise or something to this piece, didn’t i? I think I’ve changed my mind - it doesn’t seem to need it.
Cameron - Thank you!
Funeral Laugh - Thanks for your suggestions. I should be uploading the large version next week, so you can make a print from that. Are you going to sign this when you leave it on his door? Hey, just don’t get ME into trouble, okay?!
T-lapia - Thanks!
Jeromoo - Thank you for pointing that out. I didn’t want the candles to have too distant a range, but if they’re lighting up the man, they probably should hit the boss a little, shouldn’t they? I’ll go in and add a little of that. And you’ll definately be able to see my final piece. Once it’s up, it’s up for good: You can even go back and look at everyone’s final images from the last challenge on the Grand Space Opera thread. So you might not be able to see it soon, but it’ll be around. Have a great vacation!
cuppacam - Thank you thank you thank you!
MK - Thanks, Patrick!
Okay, off to go play a bit more ‘Psychonauts.’ (This game rocks!) I’ll post more comments tomorrow, and likely a new revision - the last one? - Saturday.
