A digital mini-painting made for Inogen games. Wacom + Corel Photopaint 8
Lol...dont worry about it Matt...Its an honor that I even get to be in Epilogue in the first place. I walk among giants here, true professionals in their respective fields. I am but a beginner, and I thank you for gracing my humble little gallery sir!
That was weird, I think I must have pressed the wrong button, anyway, just wanted to say that this is one my favourites. I love the smoky atmosphere and the moon is superb. You have some really nice stuff in your gallery Chris!
Hi Chris, I can't believe I haven't commented on your work. I feel a little ashamed of myself considering you always
All I can say is that I really did not cut and paste a photo of the moon in this image. I hand rendered it on a wacom tablet while looking at reference. I think that if I had just cropped a photo of the moon, it would really look out of place because it would be too "perfect" and detailed
I dig that it looks like charcoal on a phot of the moon.
Uwe, you are very kind and friendly person. I thank you for having the capacity to admire the works of we more amateur up and coming artists. I have nothing but the deepest of respect for you and your amazing works. See you around.
amazing - your new posts are gorgous!!!!! - wow! in this one you captured a great spooky mood - really great piece!!!!!
Thank you Jenny. According to my hit statistics, this is the most popular image in my gallery right now. I appreciate your kind words. By the way, love your vast collection of watercolor works.
Oh, very cool image! I love the mood, still but menacing. Great play with light and shadow.
Now that you mention it, this image does have a widescreen aspect ratio heh heh Also, I painstakingly rendered that moon from a photo on my Wacom, I'm proud of how it turned out. I notice that when we artists draw from life, our mind and hand processes it somewhat, changes it, creating a new image with slightly different characteristics. For instance, I think when you draw something from a photo James, you actually make it look better. It's like you only see the best qualities of the image and enhance them to a new level of perfection. I try to do that too, and I find that fascinating. Thanks for your kind praise.
Oh Man, Christopher, this has the feel of a movie about it, eerie and atmospheric, your detailed moon is awesome!
Thanks Christine! Corel is kinda like the poor artist's photoshop heh heh, at least for me it is. I got a copy of Corel 8 off eBay for a $1.00 once! I hope it wasn't stolen or something, gulp, but I couldn't resist! The bid price was only a buck! It came with all the huge manuals and everything! The seller was honorable to his word and mailed it to me even though no one else bid. I never thought I would get it, but I paid the $1.00 anyway, and sure enough, 2 weeks later, I got this wonderfully powerful program in the mail!
And yeah, maybe one day I will do a blown up version of this. They only wanted an image that was 1X3, or 2x4, so this is actually bigger than what was called for. I found that it was impossible, even on the computer, to fit a satisfying amount of detail into such a small space, so I had to make the image bigger. Thanks for dropping by!
Thanks Marley, I like the points you mentioned as well, and I knew you would because you are the "Cloud Dude". ^____^
Woohoo! I immediately wanted to see a larger version, so job well done! I use Corel and a Wacom too...huzzah!
Thats a neat one chris, really spooky ambience. I particularly like how the moon melds with the cloud structure around. Cool figure work too .
