A small number of new details. This time I’m showing it at 50% resolution. I’ll post a link to the whole image (at low resolution, but without the image degradation) right after this …
Great details, Mark! I especially love the little worm-shaped alien in his little worm-shaped spaceship. Liked the details on your process, too. I have an action just like that myself, expand 3 pixels and fill with foreground color, I use it all the time.
Anyhow, only crit I can think of at this point is maybe varying the materials a bit. Everything is painted with a similar matte material and it might be nice to choose a few metail things (like the aforemetioned spacehsip) and give them some sharper speculart lights to make them a bit shinier and more metallic. Anyhow, just an idea. Looking great overall, though!
Great update Mark, i realy like the little pack of dogs, and the goldfish is classic.
Wonderfully entertaining pic Mark. Very good. I would agree abt varying the textures/materials, but it has to be in Your eye for this other ‘feel’ to the pic. Great job overall
I follow this thread every time i’m in…we’re at home LOVING IT :iTS TRUELY one of our favourites!!
Keep em goin’ Mark:applause:
Hey Mark, great details!! Love to see your image, again and again!! a great joy !! The fish is simply a incredible cool touch and the dogs!! great!!. Awesome work Mark!! Cheers my friend!
Thank you Mike. Your suggestions are consistently thoughtful and helpful and I really appreciate them, especially knowing how busy you’ve been lately. You are right about the lack of variation in materials/specular so I’ve now got a new specular layer and have had an enjoyable time adding some harder-edged specular highlights to many of the materials
Thank you! I was happy about the pack of dogs too, but I’ve now made their outlines a bit thicker to more closely match the look of the linework throughout the image
Thank you! I appreciate your kind words/feedback
Thank you very much. That is very kind of you to say that
Thanks buddy. I think it’s getting pretty close to going final now. I’ll post a few details from the image after this post
Here’s a detail of how it’s looking since I made the walls a deeper colour. This is seen at 25% resolution. I’ll post a few more details from the scene. I’m thinking it’s getting pretty to finished now
A screen-grab of the next bit of foreground. I’m still needing to degrade the image quite a lot, even at this size but it’s close enough to get a good idea
And the last screen grab for today, a chunk taken out of the middle, also at 25% resolution. From here I’ll be looking some more at materials/specular highlights because I think I can go further while still keeping the watercolour look about it
Hey Mark, again enjoying your great illustration hahahahah the flower aliens!! cool!! love them!! Now you’re starting the details of the specular and lighting details, I think it´s a good idea to take a look on some Moebius works, maybe that be useful and for sure inspirational ( the palette that you are using reminds me some palettes used by Moebius on his cartoons, cool!) Again, incredible work my friend!
Excellent developement. Your small characters are sooo funny
First: I’m glad to see you have thought about such important stuff as a good sewer system and piping - from the look of it we could never guess your engineers are on vacation!
Second: Yes, that color shift makes all the difference as far as I can tell - just a tad bit more contrast to keep the different levels apart. Good work.
And so, all the details are just lovely - the flower heads made me giggle, could it be an hommage to your space pilot?
The shark on wheels are a classic, and so are the bigfoots.
And now, if we could only see them animated…
Love every sinlge piece of detail in there, really tough to pick any individual to crown as
my fav, cause I see very cute characteristics within each one of them! You really ARE
brainstorming there, and it looks like you got a lot more in storage! Talking about an
imaginative brain! hehe!
Despite other comments/requests desiring to see it heading more towards 3d, or contrast
changes, I would personaly not changed it a bit, I think the coloration, If I may put it that
way, is “just right” right now, a watercolor wash, as you self refer to!
hey man what’s up! I love what you got so far, it says mark david all over it… I’m sure you’ll make another great one, can’t wait to see it done!
simply incredible bro!! … a month and a half … you’ve come this far with so much detail! my respects! :buttrock:
hehe … a lil smthin … them aliens will be sayin ; wanna meet our creator?? … he’s name is mark
I love those screen grabs Mark-each one could stand alone as an illustration! superb-Your characters are completely brilliant! and the high res was great but I’d love to see a link to a super high res when you’re up to it!
The pink shark with wheels is probably my favourite. Hard to choose…
I love the way you’ve given each character a different personallity.
