academic dithering on the sky ;) nice composition

Epic!   The reflection of the yellow part could be a little bit brighter :)

Verry perfect. I love your dith


user
TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/10/2012 13:49

You got a point there Adam - it seems I have to admit that dithering is not always the best way to go...


user
Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/9/2012 14:44

awesome stuff! love the reflection! I would definitely like to see you work a little less with dithering, though-- makes the water look more solid than it should and the flower could use more solid clusters as well. either way, great job!

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/9/2012 06:36

Thanks again folks, you make me blush...

Thanks all for your kind words!

Thanks DawnBringer for your feedback, it's appreciated as always.

I chose a contrasting color on purpose to emphasize the contrast of the sunny side and the darker murky under water view.

Furthermore I was smiling reading your "root-comment" as I have been thinking of adding such a root myself, but in the end decided not to do so, as I couldn't really figure out how to do it right (exept adding a root-line into the eye socket, which - in my opinion - would just be an ample attempt to connect both worlds). So if you have any suggestions: I'm all ears!

Amazing!

A good old "Raster Effect" friendly composition.


user
wish04 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/4/2012 19:10

Love that reflection on the water.


user
DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 7/4/2012 16:46

This is pretty great...but that bright-blue background just seem a bit too strong to me. Maybe darken it a little and make it more purple? Would also be cool if the flower had a root feeding of the skull directly (perhaps into an eyesocket) 


user
Gavralcraw (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 7/4/2012 15:33

Wow. Great job.
