RED DAWN by tigaer RED DAWN by tigaer
Most of the time i sorta like my work. I'm never 100% happy. And basically, as an artist, you should never be 100% happy with what you do. Just to stay motivated and inspired. Now with this piece i'm almost 90% happy. And that's a lot.

I'm a sucker for backlit, sunset scenes so here we have another one. I would also say that this is pretty much a matte painting quality again. Haven't tried myself in that for a while. Now the plate i rendered myself with Vue really kicked a**, and i wanted to make it look somewhat photo real. The rendertime needed for the plate was something around 26hrs. Global Illumination and some good quality settings took some time there. I also got some nice photo reference material from =tendence and used some in my painting. Thanks for that. :nod:

Hope you like it as much as i do!

I really like the shear depth and thickness of the atmosphere, and the way the twin suns shine through it. It would be a spectacular place to visit.

I agree with you on the sentiment that artists are never happy with their work. I always try to improve some aspect of my work in some way with each and every thing I create. It's that desire to improve that keeps me going :)

Amazing work! It's been a pleasure watching you grow as an artist. I've watched you since your early Terragen days.

Aren't Binary Sunsets fun :sun: :sun: I'll admit that parts of the landscape seems to be all over the place, but it looks like this world was probably shattered at one point and brought back together by gravity :D I do like that mountain near the middle 8-)

Great work. I love the brush work with the sons. I also like the little detail touches like the birds and the stars. The textures are also quite good. There is one thing that bugged me a bit. In the background on the right there is the mountain that is lighter because of the way the atmosphere is lit. It is a little distracting for me. I believe that if some more of the red from the left made it's way over there the overall composition of the piece would be better. It seems like the density of the fog drops off a little too quickly. Anywho great work.

Th placement of the mountain in the background on the right (bottom left on the moon) seems a bit awkward. I'm not sure if it was supposed to be "framed" by those two jutting rocks or not, but it just seems like an awkward angle.

Aside from that, this picture contains the usual jaw droppingly beautiful scenery and masterful painting that we've all come to expect from Tigaer peices. On a "normal human" scale of things, I'd give it a 194/100, on a Tigaer scale, Probably a 92/100.

Sehr gut gelungen. Das Gefühl von Weite, vor allem im linken Bereich, ist fantastisch. Der Wald sieht ebenfalls Klasse aus.

Die Texturierung des zentralen Felsens in der Mitte des Bildes ist perfekt, aber die rechte Kante des Felsens erscheint mir im Gegensatz zu den ansonsten weichen Kanten des Bildes etwas zu hart. Bei der linken Kante desselben Felsen stört mich die der harte Übergang nicht.

Der Felsen ganz oben rechts wirkt nicht so gut wie die anderen. Eventuel ein bissel mehr Schatten um die Dimension zu betonen. Wirkt irgendwie platt und 2-dimensional.

Top Arbeit!
