Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl



Good idea, mz. How's that?

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

Yeah, that looks much better. :> The concept stays the same, but to me, this way looks more "with the signature", if you know what I'm saying.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

Nice concept! I like it. Don't really have too much to say, as it seems like a more conceptual piece than anything.

Tried an abstract piece this time around...



Kinda meh, but w/e.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

The render looks a lot like Amy from the Sonic games.

It looks pretty sweet.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

I think there's a bit too much chaos and too little flow, in my opinion. I mean, it's a pretty sweet abstraction, but C4D's on their own give a feeling of too much entropy. Also, the orange does throw everything even more off.

I mean, I personally don't like it, but I could see how this would be very appealing to others.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

To me, it looks like you just threw a bunch of renders together and called it "abstract". Can you tell me what thought went into it? What was the concept you were trying to portray? To me, an abstraction isn't random renders all put together.

To critique the signature itself, it's okay, but really chaotic. There's no real focal point; maybe blur the back renders a bit, and sharpen the foremost render up a little. The colours are good for most of it, except that little orange splotch throws them out of wack. The other random sparkle/splatter things also draw my eye, too, which isn't good, either.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

Looks cool enough. Seems like it was sparked by Cobra's, and it looks like you took my advice to him. Could you tell me the concept that went into this?

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

It was actually definitely not inspired by Cobra's. I actually made most of it myself, I used 2 C4D's in the entire piece.

I was trying mainly to convey feelings of softness and hope, even in the most chaotic and unusual of times. And how the things lost may not necessarily be a bad thing, why sometimes it's just the impurities being cleansed; washed away.

That's what I was trying to convey.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

Well, I can, in some parts, see the feelings conveyed. It seems to me (and don't say I'm wrong or anything, but this is my own interpretation) that the bubble in the middle is sort of a source of light for the rest of the piece, and the black swirly things are the impurities. This source is lighting up the darkness and washing away these bad thoughts, etc. But whatever. I'm going to stop faking like I know what I'm talking about and get on with the critique.

Inside the bubble-type thing, the dark parts are WAY oversharpened, almost to a point of pixelation. The purple parts on the left and right sides of the black things are a little distracting, as well. However, the colors are really nice and really warm.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

Thanks... I'm trying to work out the over-sharpening right now.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was going for. You should try doing a few abstractions, Muzz. You'd be pretty awesome at them, methinks.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

Ooh, I like it, TB. :]

It makes me think of a sunset or a sunrise. Very beautiful. I'm not too keen on the text, though. It could use some work, or you could ditch it completely.

Here's my most recent piece.



I think I overlighted Zant a little bit. >_<

Yah, that's pretty overpowering. The lighting, that is.

Work more on the text-- but I really like that border. Also, what's with the background?

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

It's very strange. Please show me the stock. Is it a tree on a snowy day? That totally doesn't fit Zant.

Re: Signature/Small Work Showcase [V.III]: Photoshop Pterodactyl

No, it was a dead tree with no leaves on a dark night. I added some brushes and a fractal render. I try to avoid C4Ds now. I think fractal renders look cooler most of the time.

There. I actually wanted to keep the dark red color, but I wound up trailing away from that. >.>
