Now I see. Too flat, yep.

CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/11/2014 21:32

I think he means that it looks very flat, even though you do have a clear light source.

Romson (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/11/2014 00:57

Pillowshaded? Seriously? Naive, I thought I marked location of the light source. And it's not centered, obviously.

Romson (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/11/2014 00:44

||||, thank you!

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/11/2014 00:21

that dithering is so out of place, you really dont need it at all.

not to mention how absurdly pillowshaded this is.

Great interpretation of the shape.

Romson (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/8/2014 09:28

Next one is one-third the size of this. As for me it's a quite big difference: in one case, the distance between elements is 3-4 pixels ("I'm sorry, sir, but there is no free room for dithering" ); in another case free space about dozen pixels.

But you did it so well on your next piece!

At least try to reduce it!

Romson (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/8/2014 08:54

Manupix, I tried, without dithering is much worse.

Romson (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/8/2014 08:51

Thank you very much, lads!

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/8/2014 08:42

Textures look great, well done.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/8/2014 08:36

Nicely creative. Love the pink version =)

Now please kill that dithering. Watch out for banding, in the stabilizers shading and highlights.

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/8/2014 06:55

Woha, very nicely done. The shading and textures look amazing.

Using the colour just as a reflection on the glass is very clever.

Muxaun (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/8/2014 06:43

It is the best use of the orchid shape so far (especially on the frontal wings).

Belzenev (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/8/2014 06:31

cool metal texture! 

CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/8/2014 05:17

That looks fabulous! 

Romson (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/8/2014 04:54

But wait a minute!


Romson (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/8/2014 04:41

Thanks! Sure, I can make it pink... but this is going to be pretty dinky bomber, isn't it?

CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/8/2014 02:45

This is all kinds of awesome. Very creative, kudos. Not exactly an overwhelming amount of pink, but hey
