Hey, it's been a while since the last fully detailed piece. As you can see, I deviated a bit from my usual color palette (because I really find greens hard to work with in general). Kind of a self-induced challenge with some spark by ~bloknayrb caused in this comment. If you don't mind me, I'll be going back to blue/purple tones again now
During my vacations, there was no internet; hence the distraction-/procrastination-level was low. Original size is 6400 pixels wide and painted at something like 200% mostly (yes, I could've chosen 100% @ 12800px as well, but my computer died at this res already ). The hyperbasic idea behind: spikey rocks. There are about 250 of them in there. I didn't really count but if anybody's having no life, you're welcome to number them
So, as usual, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did while creating it
Factzzzz - Original size: 6400 x 3200 pixels - Time spent: 1 month - Software: Photoshop CS2 - Power outages causing me to redo 30% of the piece: 1
You like this piece? These might be of your interest as well:
Thank you! Green is insofar dangerous that it becomes really ugly once you slightly increase the saturation. Can't say the same about yellow, purple/pink might be one of those (let's call them) "radioactive colors" as well, though.
Indeed. The only thing that I can think it looks good for is scenes with vegetation. But with your piece I noticed you did not use that much green as you mixed it with blue, which as we both know works very well and quite a bit of yellow that works well as light. So, when using green it has to be mixed with a colour that the eye can feel at ease with, as what I did here (It is just a sketch): commandereve.deviantart.com/ar…
Although, purple and pink go well when you combine it with blue. But personally, I do not like using too much colour from right across the spectrum. I find if you are using red, it is nice to have a blue tinge to the shadows, the same with any two contrasting colours.
That's incredible!!! n..n Indeedhas many details, musthave cost youquite a whileto dothis piece,or maybe not? Although costing you work with color green, it looks pretty good to me. n..n Anyway:great job!
A faster way would be to simply resort to textured brushes... but then again, I feel more like I've accomplished something when I don't have to rely on anything. Essentially, it feels great to create something from practically nothing with no help whatsoever
