The old thread was here http://forumarchive.daz3d.com/viewtopic.php?t=189999 but unfortunately we can no longer see the images at the moment.


Would people either like to repost them hear (but no larger than 800 pixels on the longest side please, due to limitations of the forum software at present), or else post them directly in the Contest thread..


THanks

I think I posted mine the day everything went down.

Now, I'm swamped at work and in a class I'm taking. I don't know if I'll get another chance to touch it.

Mr Hyde doesn't look happy about being asked to pull over.

Would like to hear some of your thoughts, thanks.

Ya! For the site being back up! Here are the pics I posted in the work in progress thread.

The first one that I later changed and then the second one from all the great advice I had received.

I like it but the image seems a bit grainy.

I like the framing of the figures. One thing I would suggest is try focal length of the camera. For action scenes and comic book art i often use a 35 mm lens or lower. This enhances the foreshortening and gives the image a more dramatic comic book feel. I have used as low as 12 mm on an image before, but 20 mm to 35 mm is more common. Another trick I have often done is for vehicles i do short animations, often just 5 or 6 frames, just to add motion blur on the spinning tires. That and some dust clouds will really add to the feel of motion. Other than that its a really well composed scene.

I like the original better, just for the framing. It needs something for sure, but being tight on the character's face is better to me. I like expressive faces, tell me the story in the face. Having a background in Illustration and comic books, I am always looking for the story. I want to see an image and instantly know what happened 5 minutes before the image and what it about to happen. I want a sense of who this character is, where he comes from, what he is doing and where he is going. You can convey all this information in a well composed image. You have a good style, i see your work as close... but needs a little something to kick it up a notch. Trouble is that something is often hard to recognize. I see this often in new artists. Some times its just a lack of confidence. You need the courage to be bold. Often times a new artist will know where they want to go but hold back. You never achieve greatness from doing what you know you can do, you achieve greatness by doing what no one thought you could.

I also like the set up, I think you go make it seem much more action packed by tweaking the camera a bit so the wheel of the motorcycle is aimed more at the viewer then to the side. Hunching mr Hyde over the bike could also make it feel like he's going faster as well.

Thank you Frank0314 and LycanthropeX!

I also have to agree, that I like the framing on the first one better, I prefer close ups on faces. For the story It is still incomplete and I'm torn on different ways to express that last piece. The second one does need something, but I been able to get my idea work on the next step. I tax the program and it likes to crash on me. I still have a day so I'm gonna work on it some more and see if I can get that last little oomph I'm aiming for.
