Light The City by katcrunch Light The City by katcrunch

COMMENTSPLZ! :la:



This was started mid-January. During its journey, I've had 2 hiatuses or whatever because the sheer complexness has perplexed me so in many ways :ohnoes: In total, I've probably used 2 and a half months of my life XD

:party::la::dummy:BUT IT'S FINALLY FINISHED!:dummy::la::party:
/failemoticondecor

From the last time the last WIP update as posted, I've been working semi nonstop (I ate, browsed a bit, and fell asleep for an hour) for 12 hours, traversing the night :dummy: hurr.

It started really from little me wanting to do more than just pitch black haze as a background, so I thought a city would be nice! As its lights and sparks would allow me to do lighting in such ways as my usual pictures :lol:

I had to raid some of my friends' Facebook albums on how nightlighting is 8D

The result is as what was expected, though some certain things planned before had to be changed a bit or even cancelled, but they're insignificant :B So I'm quite glad, even though it still looks messy.

Ohgod. I want to slap myself for those ads and movie posters XD

aaaand I just realized that I forgot some small bits and pieces here and there OTL

Thatisall! <3
Sorry if this is inaccurate of what big skyscraperful cities are like. My knowledge of such things consists only of pictures

Wow ajib!

Btw komen dikit ya :D

Secara perspektif, ini menarik banget karena agak2 distorsi. Kotanya oke, gedung2nya fine, environmentnya dapet banget. Tp agak drop karena mobil2 di bgnya agak kurang pas perspektifnya. Contohnya VW Kombi yg di sebelah kiri itu bagian bawahnya terlalu datar sehingga kalau nggak dikasih bayangan, terkesan VWnya rada oleng ke kiri. Menurut wa sih coba disejajarin aja garisnya sama garis2 di pembatas jalannya itu.

Trus bus yg warna merah juga agak out, terkesan si bus ngadepnya terlalu ke kanan (naek ke trotoar dong XD), karena kalo kamu coba tarik garis lurus antara gedung 2 lantai yg jendelanya nyala kuning2, sama busnya, ke arah titik hilang di sebelah kanan, pasti titik hilangnya beda deh. Sama mobil biru di belakang busnya juga sepertinya mengalami hal yg serupa.

Sepertinya karakter bukan jadi poin utama di gambar ini jadi ga wa komen banyak, tp kembangin aja, soalnya orang2nya ini jadi foreground aka hal yang pasti diliat, maka dari itu sebisa mungkin harus dibuat menarik juga.

Soal shading udah oke, tp pada pewarnaan sepertinya kurang "sentuhan2 final" (cie XD). Coba setelah gambarnya finish, di-color correction lg biar ada moodnya. Kalau kayak gini sih emang agak berkesan photorealistic, tp negatifnya, kadang2 ini bikin moodnya berasa biasa aja.

Yaa sekian dulu deh, keep up the good work :D

Ohmaigat, andai komen bisa difave :'D

Berhubung gambar ini dibuat setaun lalu lebih jadi udah sadar mana aja yang agak off haha ^^; Kalo ngeliat udah ngerasa banyaaak banget yang salah tapi masih seneeng aja XD

Emang pas buat kendaraannya bagian paling susah dan ini juga pertama kali gambar mobil dengan detail (bahkan sekarang masih kesusahan!)

Kalo bagian orang-orangnya emang aslinya sengaja dibikin gak begitu mencolok tapi emang aku setuju juga beberapa agak bland gitu. Mungkin ekspresi sama gaya tubuhnya kurang keliatan kali yaa.

Maksudnya color correction kayak misalnya kamera pake filter gitu ya? Pas gambar acuan lightingnya emang dari foto kota tanpa edit sih jadinya yaaa gitu :B Rencananya sih akhir-akhir ini kalo udah gak sibuk mau bikin gambar sejenis ini lagi ohoho.

Thankyouu! :heart:

Daaaaammnnnn, child. this is quite a scene to set out to do, and you sure did a great job. The background is what impresses me most, it's not glaringly out of perspective and it has just the right amount of old and new buildings like most cities.

All that hard work definitely paid off, I think this may be the most amazing thing you've ever done! I couldn't make something like this in a hundred years, it is beyond epic. :D

Oh, and rest assured, that is TOTALLY what big skyscraperish cities look like. It's a lot like walking in New York City Time Square, lol. :dance:

HOW DARE YOU :ohnoes: Elves are not meant to decay in any corners of a room. They're meant to fling dwarves, shine, and be adored!

If I'm not mistaken, you've sneezed on her, you must at least make a WTF expression of her XDDD

YESSIR. :heart:

I KNOW, I AM ASHAMED OF MYSELF. GIMLI MUST FEEL DEPRIVED. But then again, Arwen decided to choose a mortal life, so..... :giggle:

That would be most amusing, but I didn't sneeze on the actual picture... I sneezed on my reference picture. XD
