Re: Verving the Pipeline: Multi Program Workflow

That would be such a cool feature, It would elevate verve perhaps to true commercial. :beer:

Re: Verving the Pipeline: Multi Program Workflow

I have been doing quite a bit of writing lately. Needed to do something else and give that part of mind a break. :ud: :) Did a different version of the image I needed to correct earlier

Re: Verving the Pipeline: Multi Program Workflow

I like your graphical/cartoon treatment. Very rich and dry colors.
The content is a little bit all over the place, leading to unfortunate associations of body parts, hahaha, and it's a brave choice to have such rich colors in the background, but the main focal element in almost muted browns and grays. Especially since the armor is almost chrome/silver, you'd expect it to really reflect a lot of the environment.
But it sure looks dramatic! :D
It sure is great to take a break from one discipline and rejuvenate your spirit with another. I keep doing that myself, too. So important.
Here to help! :D

Re: Verving the Pipeline: Multi Program Workflow

Thanks Taron,

I do like breaking the rules to try something different. It took me awhile to find the unfortunate associations lol. At least it's not as blatant as the Sfx shooting out of an earlier works ... :lol: My thought here was to try to create a center with the character. The background represents memories that take precedence. A note on color and blending. (This for the very stray person just learning) I didn't use the controls for hue and saturation to control the color output. I started with a subdued selection of color after I flattened the colors to lose complexity. Using that as a base I duplicated the base 3 times and used overlay on each copy. This caused the richness. There were other blending changes used on individual elements such as subtraction. I attempted to create an X focal to keep drawing the eye back to the less spectacular center while thinking the background would keep the eye roving around from front to back. Still very fun to do. c:! :D

Re: Verving the Pipeline: Multi Program Workflow

One more experiment before I get back to my writing schedule. I've had this little guy for years and never used him. I saw him again as I was trying to drum up an idea for a decent image. No decency here :lol: I made him a geo shell and applied a fur shader I have been playing with. Poor lil fellow looked cold. :ud: ;)
