No Safe Haven - created by arca


No Safe Haven
Favs: 9SBS: 20Hi-resRank: 3/14Score: 63% (25)10514 views

A little dark. Thought something haunting would be appropriate for coming up to Halloween.

It is a visual depiction of horrors and sense of entrapment Mental Illness can cause.

Thanks to Rebecca-parker stock for the model. Other images used are my own.

Fantastic ! love the contrst between the grey and the orange/red

Ressiv says:

Very nice scene! I also like that you've used mostly your own images. One think you could work a little on; the transition between de fore and background. They don't look connected. You could at least blur the far end of the bridge/edge since the back is blurred too. And maybe make the front part of the mountain where the bridge is touching it grey too like the foreground. Good luck!

A.W.E.S.O.M.E

author says:

Sorry it took me so long to get to this. I have been out of town and did not have access to a sort of took Ressiv's advice but instead of softening the end of the bridge ... which I had don a little already I sharpened the mountain just a bit so it would me the same sharpness as the bridge where it connects. And I added a little gray to the portion of the mountain.

I did not want to soften the back ground too much as I wanted to have a more surrealistic look than "natural" I hope I have achieved that???

avatar langstrum
langstrum says:

Agree with the others' opinions. About the background I don't think you have to work more on it, now it's fine. The purpose of using the shallow DOF is making the main subject standing out. In your case, the path behind her has the pattern which is uniform enough to lead the focus to the girl, so it's okie, not mention that you also achieved the surrealistic look . But I still have some questions for you, author. Why the hair is longer than her left hand when they have equal position horizontally (I mean both of them are limited by the ground, so the end of the hair should be higher or equal to the left hand, which is a bit in front of the hair). Why the statue hands behind her have the long, straight, and sharp shadows but she has just blurry and not clear shadow (the hair needs shadow on the ground also)? The last thing is the nails of the statue hands look distorted too much.
All in all, the first impression on this work is very good, especially the wise use of color and smart composition. You really have not only the good skill but also the artistic eyes, congrats!

avatar spaceranger

Love it! Spooky feeling of horror without the blood and gore! Beautiful rendering!

author says:

Langstrum ... thank you so much for all your advice.

I have redone the hair (shorter and now melting into the ground like the hands), softened the shadows on the hand statues and added missing hair shadow! For the distorted hand statues I touched them up a bit but I am trying for a sinister, surrealistic look and want them to be odd... so left them quite warped.

Regarding her body shadows ...the shadow is not as sharp as the hand statues because she is between the buildings and the light is not getting to her (this was intentional, to depict the darkness and claustrophobic feeling of being trapped inside a mental illness). I also avoided strong shadows on the statues in the corridor around her for the same reason.

The lighting is off on the whole image to some degree. I wanted it to be nightmarish so I tried to make things not quite "right". So, just like in a dream where everything is off but still feels real I thought that the lighting and shadows was a good area to mess with, if you know what I mean???
Thanks again for your well thought out critiques ... great help!

Birds Haven - created by DigitalDreamer


Birds Haven
Favs: 6SBS: 5Hi-resRank: 2/14Score: 64.4% (30)8433 views

This was an old entry I had done, I have made some changes that I wasn't able to complete at the time when the older contest ended.

*Fixed the grass some of it looked duplicated around the edges

*I couldn't fix the red hue where the sun was shinning on the tree, it's not red it's just sunlight, :( I did try but it just didn't work well.

*those were all the sbs steps I had saved I couldn't find the others. There should of been one where it showed the part where I added the back and the blending of the pillars.

*I changed it a bit brighter seemed a bit dark

*I also added another part of the building to go behind it sorta to give the image more depth

8/18/09 sorry haven't had time to make the changes I would have sooner

I changed it a bit darker to give an almost night effect up top and added stars and a falling star in the top right corner

I also hope that I fixed the depth in the bricks

Thanks guys for all your input
Thakns to chris gin @ flickr for the tree

and to alharaca @ deviant art for the bird brushes (5 years and 1919 days ago)
