a drawing of the super tall birch tree that lives next to our apartment, drawn with reference, just for practice/stress relief.
this is based on the view of the tree from our five-storey-high bedroom window on a sunny winter morning, which is narrow because the curtains are usually only slightly open. my first view of this tree in the morning says a lot about what kind of day it’s going to be. weather has a massive impact on my emotional state so a view like this basically means optimism and hope to me.
drawn in photoshop cs5 with a cintiq companion (full version - not the hybrid). for more info on my artwork please visit loish.deviantart.com/journal/6…
F.A.Q | LOISH.NET | BLOG | FACEBOOK
is so precise and nicely detailed and the sunset's light warm and realistic.
I wonder if it would look better without it, though. Have you tried something using the CMYK channels instead of the usual RGB?
But you would shift three channels, not just two. And the overall effect would be different, because the RGB system is an additive color model and the CMYK is a subtractive color model, which means that combined, the colors tend to black rather than white.
It may or may not look good, though. It's been a long while since I did that. But I'm sure that you could do something waaaay better than what I could.
Love your stuff, BTW.

Spread Some DA Love, No. 66
Welcome to the latest installment of my "favorite faves" -- the best, in my opinion, of works I faved recently. Some of these pieces you have no doubt seen; others you may be viewing for the first time. If you come across something you like please let the artist know -- give them some DA love in the form of faves and comments; also take a look at their galleries -- you might like their work so much you'll want to watch them!
Remember, everyone could use a little more DA love!
(Many of the works shown below are included in the galleries of two groups I founded. Visit Ugly-Mug-Portraits ugly-mug-portraits.deviantart.… and Surreal-Landscapes surreal-landscapes.deviantart.… to view even more incredible art created by very talented DA artists in need of your support!)
I love the colors !
The weather means everything to me, too...
