Guardian of the Skies.


The ramp source has been OK'd by Rob. A couple of the images are in a Gallery, so I put down their gallery numbers.

SBS has been updated to reflect changes. (3 years and 246 days ago)

This is a well put together chop, lots of imagination and work put into it. Be that as it may, there is something about the shadows bothering me. Specifically the tones and consistency. It seems to me that those gun turrets, the ropes from the balloons, and the side of the ship need some shading. Also, I'd think there would be some shadows cast onto the fog from the different elements in the scene.
I like the mood you're trying to set, a few tweaks would bring it over the top IMHO.
Good luck.

Thanks Ichappell. I re-did a bunch of things. Too much to type out but it is all written out in the first step of the SBS. TY for the suggestions. I didn't do any fog shadowing though.

Nice changes, especially those cables/ropes holding the balloons.

I really like the surreal dream like quality to this chop and I'm not so sure about shading because without it the end result is otherworldly. It is only an opinion on my part.

author says:

Image has been updated. the old version is in the SBS if you want to compare.

Play with the levels and curves maybe.

author says:

Thanks for your help with this. I didn't know what you specifically meant by "Play with the levels and curves", but I did darken the entire boat/sub some with Curves.

A recruiting poster from an alternate reality. Rather than just having a Dieselpunk image I wanted to add the graphics which I find adds an interesting touch. Looking at the source reference I really liked the various poster designs so I thought I'd go that route myself.

Most of the work went into the vehicle with a great deal of fixes and modifications. The Rocketeer appears in many Dieselpunk images so I added him to mine as though he's endorsing the recruiting campaign. This is a real fun genre with many design possibilities.

This time, instead of chopping apart things and reassembling, I thought I'd try to make a creation in 3D. Beyond the beginner stage, I consider my techniques at this point to be intermediate - I've got more to learn, but am satisfied with this. SBS shows stages of construction.

The bomber command figures and the coal mine machinery are both up shots, and don't match the perspective of the rest.

I'm aware, thanks.
