Its funny, I looked a the thumbnail and immediately knew this was a James Lee piece.
Wow that's rough. He's not even trending.
Nice work, I especially like your edge lighting. My only critique here is that adjusting the brightness/contrast of the picture would really help the character and the environment stand out.
What this needs is some lighting elements that help bring out the front figure's outline, particularly around the hair and upper legs. The face details as already noted seem to be bleached out... either too much light, or the skin is too white (there have been times where I had to make white surfaces grey in order to balance out strong 3d lighting).
Rim lighting can really help out in these kinds of renders.
Thanks I'll try that gray skin thing- I'm trying to make a sort of dark washed out noir look where only the blues really shine through, the problem is some of the lines get washed out. Still learning how to use After effects
I loved Zero Dragon, and I think you gave that cell-phone smashing hippie some justice.
I'd say this comic is pretty accurate. Gotta love the space screen saver; I'm not sure why they removed it in later versions of windows.
Indeed!, I guess screensavers are not as necessary anymore; but yeah, I remember some of them being pretty amazing (at the time); they even had a lot of customization options!
Very worthy choice for Pico day; WoN brings to Newgrounds original, insane-quality animation, storytelling and even a dash of music to the mix. Kudos to your art piece; I too see a nice appeal with the mixture of purple and yellows.
Glad you enjoy it!
Well, this satsifies my sci-fi fix for the day. I like how the rock formations accent the buildings and how you didn't overkill on the lense flares of the ship.
Excellent and interesting scenery which could certainly tell a story. A well-deserved front page.
A very well-deserved front page piece. I really enjoy the clean lines and the sharp detail.
Thanks you. I didn't even know it got to the front page till i read your comment haha! :)
