Very nice piece, thanks for sharing! I like how it’s moody and realistic, and stylistic at the same time. I really like the water, and the lighting (quick question: lotsa spots, or radiosity for the GI? I’m guessing the first…). Also the postprocessing is done very well, the contrast is spot-on to my eyes. And I like the foreground blur.
This view seems rather orthagonal. Sometimes you can adjust the apparent scale of a scene by moving the camera closer to or further from your subject while adjusting the FOV so as to keep the same general composition.
Other than that suggestion, I really like work here. Nice job.
I agree with some other comments that it looks like it’s on a small scale though, like a toy. It’s the lack of small details that makes it look like this. Everything is too clean and smooth, add small scratches and dents and it will look life-size.
Apart from this I’ve nothing to crit about the model. It’s very well done
yes it does look too “clean” and all, but the modelling is still good and so is the atmosphere.
Just out of curiosity, did you have to do a b/w conversion in photoshop, or could you have set up all of the materials to be grayscales and renederd it like that? would it have looked better or worse? has anyone ever tried this?
