PBJ: page one

as promised, a surprise.

if this looks unfamiliar, check the very first post of this blog.

words pending.





















i'd also like to make an open request.

i'd like to ask my fellow fauxmos to do me a favor. from henceforth, please be decisively critical regarding my contributions. i trust your perspective, and i know there's room for improvement.

on a serious note. how does this work exactly? are you working with a composite of photo textures and painting?

the lighting is phenomenal if this is right off the dome then we may have to bring you down.

I really think that is what really does it for me, the way the lighting is working to really create an atmosphere and depth. That style of environment balances really well with a character drawn in that style.

you've got it. various photos; chopped up, pieced together into new arrangements, and then the entire surface is painted over. personally there's still too much of the photo's presence here. it's too obvious.

i think this technique may serve as a fine crutch until i no longer have to rely on photos to achieve the same effect. but i've been using this technique since Butt Bean. Used it on the tree in Zwei also.
