Still mucking about with fake sunrays in photoshop, am I getting any better? Asides from the fake rays I also used a second image change up the grass on the creek side so it wasn't the same anymore since the original had a bunch of underwater grass and such that wasn't very aesthetic.
For poops and giggles I uploaded a before and after image here where you can see the original photo and the final: [link]
I couldn't have asked for a better set of conditions for this photo, on the left we have one of my favorite buildings in vernon (couple more shots in my gallery), on the right you have christmas lights (squee, my favs of winter), and in the middle joining them you have a great sunset. The powerlines also draw me in more.
Ok, the idea for this project came to me when searching through my collection of images and finding this famous image by M.C.Escher. He's well known for these works of perspective. I decided it would be fun to apply a "Blame!" theme to it. Little did I know when I first started Toha Industries was actually like this, so that just made the whole image sweeter. Anyway yeah, only took something like 20 hours to do > _<, and it only has 72 layers . It doesn't have as much detail as I would like, but i'm getting to that point where I just wanna push it out and don't wanna spend more time on detail. I suppose I should explain the lack of faces, well there's two reasons: 1) I cannot draw faces, especially really small ones. 2) Escher's work didn't have faces . And also as a side note, this is my first CG image with my new imprint on it signifying it is mine. the Kanji in the middle is 'Ookami' = Wolf (BTW my initial's are TWS ).
I'll end this by dedicating this to the Blame! Fan Club to which I am now a member of.
