Elderscroller´s humble museum of color and light

Postby Elderscroller » Tue May 20, 2014 7:03 am

Here is some of my finished stuff that I consider portfolio worthy. Not that it´s exceptionally good, it´s just the best I can conjure at the moment. But with time and practice the paintings on this museum´s walls hopefully will improve. Constructive critique is of course more than welcome!

Hiya Elder, you've got some pretty good rendering skills going for you. One thing that bothers me in all of these though is how sharp everything is, it makes it seem like everything is important in them. Take the first piece for instance, no matter how far away objects are in the background all the edges are super sharp. I can see each and every door(?) clearly, nothing is suggested, every detail that will fit is visible. This isn't how our eyes work(though it is how a camera usually works), we can usually only focus on what we're looking at directly, with details becoming less and less perceivable as they move farther away from our focus. This type of focus can make for a powerful tool in illustration to help guide the viewers eyes exactly where you want them to be, as well as make your pieces feel more natural. I hope that helps :).

totally agree with Ambiguity's comment. You need to contrast the amount of the details, the sharpness of edges, the value range.. Take time to analyse that kind of things in other paintings and when you observe the real world.
It would add a lot of value to your paintings. Great work keep it up :)

@ Ambiguity and Necrokosmos: Thanks very much for your comments! You´re both right about the sharpness. It is partly like that because I used to apply a slightly overdone sharpness filter in PS as one of my last steps. I´m toning that down now or use it selectively. I also put in too much detail :)

Another illustration for the undead supplement for the RPG Arx Temporis. This is a Revertor, kind of a reanimated champion. Not necessarily evil, but he blindly pursues a task, he couldn´t fulfill in life and stops at nothing to achieve his goal
