You don't see anything... by psyAlera You don't see anything... by psyAlera
Yes-yes, you don't see anything, this is an absolutely blank canvas, shhhhh~ e v e

I know I shouldn't be submitting this, but I couldn't resist!!! I spent the last 4 days working on it and nothing else and I just wanted to share. This is actually a 3D model, rendered, lined and painted. I spent a day and a half modeling it, in Maya; one day for lining, in SAI; and the rest was shading in PS. @A@ And even though the model and lines were mirrored, the shading is totally unique for the whole thing. When I lined it and put the base colours it looked sooo stiff and boring and fake, I totally hated it. I spent quite some time finding the right colours for it as well, different kinds of shading until I ended up with something a bit more painterly because I thought it gives it more life than boring solid shadows. Then I still didn't like eeet. And I thought of just scrapping it and try to think of something else, but then I decided to try something I read in a tutorial recently, a lil tweak and... OAO It suddenly looked sooo much better! I loved it and now I feel damn proud of myself =w=b

It's supposed to be a hotel btw. But shhh, remember, you've never seen it in your lives~ e v e /

Wow, this is stunning! I love seeing 3D paint-overs. I don't know if you already did this...but did you try coloring and lighting it in Maya before bringing it into Sai and PS? That might give you a head-start trying to figure out how to tackle the palette and shading next time :D
But I think all your hard work paid off, because it has such a nice moody atmosphere. I'd want to explore the place!

Yay!
No, not for this one, the model was quite messy actually so I would have gotten all sorts of crazy shadows. XD I might try to redo it though, my 3D has slightly improved now, I think XD


Thank you! >w<

You can totally be proud of how it turned out! It looks wonderful! I really like the eerie feeling of the hotel OvO

The only critique I can give to you is that you could try to integrate the hotel into the whole picture a little more. The background suggests that it's a dark night you've painted yet the white parts of the hotel remain extremely light. If you make those parts a little darker the hotel will fit better into the background.

Apart from that the picture looks really wonderful! Keep up the good work ;D

Thankies!!! >w<

Thanks for the tip too *^* That white really was bothering me.
I actually have another version of this, an improved one, but the white isn't fixed there either. I'll work on it some more~ owo
