A tree that ive drawn
*revised so people can see it, and reduced colors*
The black background is melded into the picture, and therefore is part of the piece.

I tried what you said iLKke but i cannot tell if it has helped much. Maybe another pointer? =P

Brokencode (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/10/2008 14:20
very particular

Personally, when I zoom this once, I can see even the darkest colors.
I always try to keep contrast and brightness so that I can see subtle color differences and yet avoid eye strain:
1. Pump the CON to max, keep BRI in the middles, untill you can see everything. Use pics with subtle shades in darkest and brightest parts for reference. On some monitors too much CON can give 'overglow', thus reducing clarity.
2. Reduce CON gradually, and increase BRI, trying to keep the clarity while reducing the 'glow'
3. The goal is to bring it as much as possible to printed-on-glossy-paper-look without looking too washed out.
This is for TFT monitors of course. Everybody should have a TFT.
If anyone finds this useful, then I'm a happy man :D

Trippy! I like the style.

macula (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/9/2008 08:18
Thats a really cool tree.

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/8/2008 22:20
looks much better now (I DON'T have an lcd screen )

Ditto what everyone else has, why is there little hints of an almost black hue, here and there in the piece?

*for some odd reason, I feel like I've seen this piece before on the interwebz...Must have been something that resembled it. Oh well, until I'm proven correct, this piece is fine...*

I have LSD, but still don't work ..


Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/8/2008 15:32
I think it's incredibly hard to see. But the style and design is great.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/8/2008 15:22
its more like you have to higligth the image. or else, its just a black rectangle :P   

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/8/2008 15:00
The design is hot.  But you need to complement it with your color choices! 

HoofFoot (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 1/8/2008 15:00
I have to agree with everyone else. It's too dark, but what I can see is beautiful. Just a little brighter and it'll be good.

Smifff. (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/8/2008 15:00
Yes, too dark :s. But still looks very nice.

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 1/8/2008 14:57

you sure your monitor is calibrated properly?? I have an LCD, and I had to zoom in like 6x to see that it isnt jsut all black :D

regarding the art itself I liek it alot :D

Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 1/8/2008 14:45
WHOA. Some contrast would be nice.

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/8/2008 14:43
YEah, make it way brighter.

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/8/2008 14:43
From what I can see it's pretty good! But you could brighten it a little, I really have to stress my eyes to see anything..

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/8/2008 14:26
Member voting has sent this through.
I still think its too dark but...

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 1/8/2008 12:02
Too dark, I don't get clear picture what´is there. I liek the texture I can see :D

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/8/2008 10:38
It is way to dark, but once you make the rest of your screen black in paint, it looks quite good... Nice shapes, but brighten it up...

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/8/2008 10:10
Too dark to appreciate, me thinks : /

*on crt, lcd and flatgloss

Krazykatz1995 (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/8/2008 09:36
I like the way that the edge of the tree is all twisted and so... cool.

chess (Level 8 Shodan) @ 1/8/2008 05:55

Zethell (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/8/2008 01:05
