Wow! Those clouds... cool!

d9nis (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/5/2016 02:31

Well... I don't know about saturation, but the image is a little bit too darker ihmo. For the washed out appearence it's one purpose since it's look more ghostly.

Thank you for the feedback anyway :)

Theoden (Level 8 Marshal) @ 11/5/2016 02:27

Great work, my only critique would be the dull and washed out look of the colors. 

I think you need a little more saturation on some parts.

The preview doesn't seem to compliment this piece properly :(

Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 11/18/2011 03:43

You could have fixed it in about 5 seconds adding a slight outline on the dark side.

Superbe pièce !

L'image semble morte, ça a vraiment un aspect fantomatique, ce qui me plait beaucoup personnellement ! Vraiment, la grande classe ya pas à dire :)

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 11/10/2011 10:20

 C'est très agréable à regarder et quelle dimension ! Toutefois le manque de couleur se fait sentir. La scène serait plus "vivante".

d9nis (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/10/2011 04:46

lulz! It's not! It seems I fail to render correct perspective :p

Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 11/10/2011 01:36

Heh nice surprise. But why is the middle ship cut in  half?

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/9/2011 11:36

 Eeeerie.... fav'd!

Liberlive (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/9/2011 08:06

 WoW. Puissant dans la composition, admirable dans le gestion des couleurs et du dithering. Je suis moins convaincu par le ciel, neanmoins.

Ca reste superbe.

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 11/8/2011 03:02

Almost didn't click on this, but I'm glad I did! Lovely job!

d9nis (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/6/2011 11:57

thanks for advice Reo!

Reo (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 11/6/2011 11:46

The piece is sadly quite overdithered, and mostly the dithering has a sort of banding effect instead of being a transistion between colors.

The Dithering works best with the clouds by the moon, the saill are an overdithered pillowy mess

The scope of it all is very impressive though. And the ''underlying drawing'' is great! Very cool subject matter!

d9nis (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/6/2011 09:13

I've serious probleme with my palette, totally monotone :/

I've to change it for next piece

grinningCat (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/6/2011 09:09

 This is amazing. Only 24 colors. o_o

xxmantisxx (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 11/6/2011 08:17

So very, very smooth, I love it!

Mathias (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 11/5/2011 23:45

Haha! He's still going! Huge. Nice stuff!

d9nis (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/5/2011 17:14

CobaltHex, so totally not! x)

CobaltHex (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/5/2011 17:05

 that preview definitely does not do this justice 

Christoballs (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 11/5/2011 17:02

I'm most likely wrong to doubt you, but this does look a lot like it was a render or based off a render at some point. If not, my apologies!
I think the clouds could do with some highlights.

Ceci dit j'aime beaucoup la palette sourde de ta série. :)

ThePixelKnight (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/5/2011 16:47

A trap I'm glad I clicked on ;) nice one! Fave

d9nis (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/5/2011 16:31

I know, it's an evil trap :p

Ponteiro (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/5/2011 16:04

I admit I underestimated when I saw the preview

mdog95 (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 11/5/2011 14:18

 Cool stuff.

Dont (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 11/5/2011 13:30
