Hi everyone, I think this will be my finished version of Mr Hyde vs. The Law. Do you think I went overboard on the explosions?
I have taken Daz to a new level with the purchase of a 24" monitor today, for the first time I can see all my tabs and the scene at the same time. WOW what a difference it makes.
First, congrats on the new monitor! I couldn't live without a decent monitor to design on. As far as going overboard on the explosions, I don't think you went to far, but I think your placement could be better. One of the great things about that piece is the bike looked like it was ready to pop out of the screen. With that explosion in front of the tire, it really takes away from this. Another thing you may want to think about is where are you first looking when you see that image where do your eyes go from there? (I print things off, then turn them upside down to see about this, and it helps me with proportion and flow a lot.) I like how this image is coming along and I think it will be a great peice when you finish.
Quite welcome, and I must say that your final render has come a very long way from where it started! Good luck in the judging, your entry has my vote for sure! On that note, I am already looking forward to next months competition .... perhaps we will see mono color renders I would love that!
Its still in progress at the moment. I am pleased with the angle of the shadows in general, but I feel like its missing something. I dunno maybe she should be holding an egg?
There is alot of 'background space' taking up the middle of the image. Maybe move the perspective a touch so either the girl or the dinosaur are more centered. Alternatively, move the dinosaur a bit further to the left so its taking up the bulk of the image. It might also give the impression the girl is cowering from it rather than just assessing her options.
