Perspective.

Perspective.
Not sure if this is the best place to post this, but here it is.

I was wondering what folks think of the perspective, if it looks right or if it looks off, and the general make-up of the picture. I've been working on it for a while now, learning how to do all the different effects, and have got a fair few things to add to it.
In case anyone wonders what it's all about...well, this is my theory of one way the big bang could've happened.

Well, the perspective is ok to me, but there's a great sense of unfinishment in the picture. These are a few tips that might help your work:

- the corners of regular walls have a fillet or chanfer, you could add that to your scene. Also, you could add a texture to the walls.

- The stars seems like a stain of blood. There are really great stars/space tutorials for gimp out there, like this: http://www.gimptalk.com/index.php?/topic...s-in-gimp/

- there could be more vapour in the lower part of the scenes... like covering most part of the floor.

- it seems like a closed room. You should try getting the composition better if you want to show that it is 'outer space' on the back wall.

Well, now with the positive points:

- the left and right engine got really good. It looks like it's 3d.

- the pillars and the inside of the sphere got a nice effect of metal. Did you make them in inkscape? the gargoyles break the pillar a little bit... you could try to make them look like if they were made from the same material. But they are quite good already.

You can get a good result if you keep working on it Smile

RE: Perspective.
Thanks for the tips and comments, freewanderer, it's nice to know what folk think of the designCool

I did some more work to this one then submitted it to Deviantart. I'm not overly happy with the end result but as an early days piece, I'm still only a few months into digital design, it's not so bad. Here's a link for anyone who wants to take a look.

The engines and pillars were done in Gimp. I made a texture first and then added drop shadows to give the image of depth, then mapped to a cylinder. After that I scaled them in various ways to get the different shapes. The gargoyles are from a picture of a gargoyle that sits on a self in my home, I'll have to have a go at making them more metallic looking.

My space scenes have got a long way to go so thanks for the link.

I'll have to take another look at this picture and try out the things you suggest, cheers for the ideas.Smile
