Just a question, I am starting an E-Magazine. I am looking for art work for it. Its called "The Cauldron" Can I feature this for the cover art for our inaugural issue or would you like to put up fresh ink for it? It is a mag about all sorts of odd witchy things and other information. Thank you Eva DelaSangre
its not difficult at all, you just need to separate the planes. first plne are the characters, the focus is all on them and what they are doing, they are the most important thing on the picture. if they were not properly illuminated or treated in the same way as the background the message would not be as clear. nest i have the cabinet which is in the 2nd plane, its not really important but its interesting to be there because it gives us more information about the surroundings, but since characters need to be in focus, i slightly blurred it, while still maintaining visibility and items that are identifiable. and the 3rd plane are the candles and place behind the cat. its not very detailed, its only there to add additional atmosphere. the perspective is actually a one way perspective, the simplest possible. but the planes are when sets it all apart
o.o Amazing, thanks for telling me all this, is just like if your looking at it on real time, and when you focus your eyes and vision to make something your watching more or less blurry right? fasinating.
you can use the same trick for planes by playing with more saturated colors in the focus (foreground) and less saturated for the background, and when working with planes, 2nd plane is less staurated, while 3rd is the most. also, playing with cool-warm contrast, bringing warmer colors forward, while cooler stay in the background (and vice-versa)
She looks very content and even happy here! Hopefully a silly/fun scene she has to look forward to after her rough first night!
The outfit is really fun (hooray for assigned uniforms perhaps?), the lighting on her is gorgeous and the background looks beautiful! Some great depth and space in that room, and a lot of life in the many neat little details all over that look amazing!
