The Watchmaker

The old man gazed into the view when he saw nature embedding herself into one of his greatest works.

The modeling and details are amazing, but the low contrast and dark lighting make them difficult to see. It’s already a great artwork, but it would be even better if the details were more visible.

I also really appreciate the short poem. It’s not every day when I see an artwork with such an attention to story building.

Thanks for the insight man, I’ll definitely try to adjust them.

I agree. This is a classic scene idea – recently seen in the sequel to Disney’s Alice in Wonderland – and excellently designed. But there needs to be just a little bit of “global illumination” – a source of light coming from the front – so that we can in fact see those other delicious details as slightly more than silhouettes. (There’s quite a lot of detail in the foreground of your model that I can’t see at all.)

You might consider giving this additional source of illumination a non-white color. For instance, a bluish tint. This will work in contrast with your generally-reddish existing color palette, without overtly drawing attention to itself.
