Fountain of youth

Postby Ted » Fri Nov 02, 2007 9:51 pm

This Image is a reproduction from concept artist hnphan. I wanted to recreate this matte painting by hnphan because if shows alot of depth that i need to learn, as well as lighting, shadows, midtones, and highlights. This was a long one that i realy enjoyed and learned a great deal from. With a few additions to this composition, I feel like this one can be thought of as great learning for matte developement. again credit to matte painter hnphan, and inspiration to try and recreate the created. ( Corel Photopaint and Serif )

This is a very well constructed composition. One would think that the waterfall is the focal point, but it is not...it is a secondary one. The area in the center of the painting with the birds has the strongest contrast and draws the eye right to it, glancing at the waterfall on the way. What is really cool, is your eyes never leave the painting...they keep bouncing back in when you start to drift toward an edge. This is exactly what a painting should do. Great job!

Sorry for the spanking, Ted. I think the ol' blood sugar was down
or something! I do think that you always build a wonderful picture
but I notice little blobs of the air
ush when there's no need.
The air
ush critique doesn't apply as much in this very
interesting piece as it does in 'Victorian Nightscare' (also very cool)
The reason I notice is that I do the same thing from time to time!
If you like I can point out particular spots in your latest that
could've gone without. :) E

Very nice, Ted. If you could add a little orange on the sky behind the fountain tree, it would pop out more. It's blending in too much IMO. The trees, water and landscape are outstanding.

I've been mulling this one over. It's very well balanced, it's very evocative, it stirs the viewer's imagination and curiousity, there's a lot to investigate. But, for me, it lacks a focal point that would initially draw and rivet the eye, only then releasing to allow further investigation of all the various intrigues and enigmas.

Hi thanks for all the great advise, I will get to work on some adjustments. Also ehoeveler if you would point out some of these areas that I could do some fine tuning. Im trying new techniques to acheive the results I want. Skys, and water are very detailed and I move back and forth with the air
ush and smudge tools. maybe sometimes I spend to much time on them. Thankyou! Ted

Treehouse

Postby Carmelo » Thu Nov 08, 2007 9:48 pm

This work reminds me of a poem I wrote about "My Timeless Treehouse" of course in your work there are a few treehouses, perhaps an arborous village.
