  1. Haven't been here in a bit so I'll post in this thread. 

    Currently I'm in the army, deployed to Afghanistan for 9 months with a little more than 2 months left over here. Place is shitty, obviously. Gonna get out of the military soon and go to college, so I'm excited for that. And I'm married now to my beautiful wife so that's a thing as well. Miss you fags.

  2. I've always loved the "color blobs", for lack of a better word. It adds an interesting style to any piece and rarely looks bad, especially in something this well done. Gj m8, put together well and I'm liking the atmo I get from it.

  3. Pretty spot on, yes! However, I try to use various tools provided by Photoshop to enhance the overall outlook of the piece. I'll also try to leave out text from now on and see how it turns out. Nothing good's ever been said about my text, so I feel it's better to attempt disregarding it. I understand what you mean by the stealing focus statement. I'd like to try to provide more effects, but steal less of the 'shine'. Maybe I failed to do so, I could have afforded to erase some of the C4D.

    Thank you! I appreciate the feedback.

    Yeah, after I applied some highlights, I thought it looked good then. I'm oblivious to 'eye-wandering', as I purposely do it continuously throughout making the piece.

    Perhaps this is a little better?


    The proper term would be eye fatigue. It's just too much in one spot, when the rest is very blurred and dark. Basically you just slightly overworked the lighting, and that causes a decreased focal quality. It's hard to word, but I think you get the idea.


    Don't get me wrong though, great piece and probably one of the best I've seen from you. KIU.

  4. Personally, I think suicide is a pretty, blatantly put, stupid concept. For some religious purposes, I can understand it; you believe there's more than our mortal life. However, for anyone who isn't religious, I don't fucking get it.


    Assuming you're not religious: there is nothing more than what our life is. How can nothing be preferable to even the shittiest situation? I think it's such a short-sighted decision, even if you're facing a terminal and painful condition. People should always hold hope and faith in their life, and if not I personally consider than, by definition, just stupid.

  6. Holy shit brady.

    This is absolutely fucking beautiful. I say this almost every time, but this is geniunely one of the best pieces I've ever seen from you. It's fucking perfect. Gift it to me m8.

    Jesus this is fucking good man.

  7. Didn't mean to attack you. It's just literally what you're saying is flat out wrong. There's a clear field of depth in this. It's as if the focal is in the near-center of a room, with it darkening behind him and in front of him. He couldn't have made the depth any more blatant.

    I mean this isn't really something you can debate. I respect your opinions, but it's not an opinionated subject. Maybe you want [i]more[/i] depth, which is understandable. But there is a very clear field of depth here.

  8. [quote name='Game Master']The only thing you can really tell is of humanoid structure is the head. The rest just looks like abstract grayness. There's no depth in the focal/background; you can hardly even tell that there is a background. There's no blending between the render and effects placed on this, it just looks like blocks of gray. It would be cool if Batman looked as if he was fading away into these blocks of gray, but that would call for depth, focal positioning, blending options, and blurring/sharpness.[/QUOTE]

    I can tell you're not familiar with Metalst, or professional design. This tag demonstrates every necessary element for a design to a t. The depth is there, and obviously so. The effects are, also obviously, blended with the focal. That's the entire concept of this piece. You say it'd look cool if he was blending, but that's literally what he accomplished with this.

    I don't understand what you're saying because what you're criticizing isn't actually applicable to this tag. The things you want added are also already there.

  9. I disagree with Gm. The composition is incredible, as it always is in your work. The online thingthat could be improved IMO is just some more vibrance in the color, and overall sharpness. It's a great tag tho, kiu.

  10. [quote name='StevenAbraham']Congrats man ;)

    So how long does all this training and school take in total?[/QUOTE]
