yeah mine looks too washed out, but his is way too saturated. Next comic I'll have a healthy mix of both.
it doesnt look too washed out, its a nice washed out. washed out can be good. but his is way over saturated, fitting in with his regular style [editline]10th February 2012[/editline] hes taking way too much control for a 'guest' comic, aka have idea, get someone to do most the work for me but i wont say any more on it i shut up now
Honestly I prefer the original piece. Feels more... tranquil, lets me look around peacefully, makes me think of, well, something post-apocalyptic. The altered version just seems like [B][I]WHOA CHECK OUT WHAT'S GOING ON HERE!!![/I][/B]
basically he killed the mood of the original (which was really good) and replaced it with an oversaturated look that just makes it seem like it's trying too hard to push the radioactive thing.

I also think a happy medium would be best. He's all "If it's going to be radioactive it's gotta be a ACID TRIP! WOOOOOOO!" whilst yours is just too washed out making it lack contrast and focus. Personally I prefer his version only for having better readability because of the increased saturation, but it's way too overdone.

[QUOTE=Detlef;34621172]you wouldnt have noticed it being washed out if it wasnt compared to that over saturated shit.[/QUOTE] Who knows. Does it matter why it's noticed? One of the main things I find important in distinguishing a masterpiece from something "good enough" is paying attention to those details others won't even notice.
he changed the color of the rabbits eyes but didn't change the color of the wolf's eyes. i'm taking it the wolf is actually the evolved rabbit, or at least looks like it, so that makes it harder to figure it out. he also added unnecessary green shit on all antlers plus a bunch of other useless crap. he fucked your comic, detlef. not to mention that he took credit for your stuff even though all he did was shit all over it. he's like: [quote]Artwork by Luna133: [link] Concept and final touch-ups by Vitaly S: [link][/quote] he really wants credits, credits and more credits. you did all the stuff and he fucked your piece, killed the mood you set by raping the saturation and over doing the colors, changed the animals aesthetically and made it harder to distinguish what the fuck's going on, and at the end, he gets the bigger credits and sorry to say, the one that calls most attention. i've been working on of2 for quite a while and giving credits is something very delicate, as if you include two titles like "modeling and texturing" you already call a lot more attention than just "modeling". he should've put it as "detlef - artwork/asshole123 - editing" or something like that, because that's all he did. he didn't do "final touch ups"; touch ups would be fixing up mistakes or whatever. what he did was add his own non-sense "details" that clash with your mood of the piece. it looks out of place. he even changed the bloody protagonists, it's like some dude re-wrote moby dick and added "it had green glowing veins all over it". it's an useless detail that takes you away from the original piece. i'm not sucking your dick or anything by defending you so much, it's just that this really pissed me off since it's happened to me before, with my band. [editline]9th February 2012[/editline] it's just really sad to see all the effort being, well, sort of thrown away.
for some reason, I don't really care too much.
[QUOTE=Detlef;34621551]for some reason, I don't really care too much.[/QUOTE] i knew i'd be wasting my time doing a huge post about it lol
I dunno what to do about it [editline]9th February 2012[/editline] ok I sent him a note.
[QUOTE=MenteR;34621468]made it harder to distinguish what the fuck's going on[/QUOTE] yeh i have no idea what the plot is
got answer from alexiuss [quote] I just adjusted the colors to be more vibrant. Most people have sucky lcd monitors so the more vibrant something is, the catchier it is in general. This painting on DA has 27'000 favs for example because people eat up vibrant: [link] Anyways you can post your version on your DA if you'd like to show it off and sell prints of it. I'll direct loooots of traffic your way, just like I did with grimhel. I got her on frontpage of DA and you'll get there too. You're getting a journal mention soon, and a lot of these are going up as daily wallpapers. I'll make sure that the people will notice! Also if you saved any of these as steps we can post a nice "painting tutorial" of it on DA with full credits to you.[/quote] Fair enough yeah.
da is fuckin serious business
He got your wolf antler drawing thing front paged.. congrats [url]http://www.deviantart.com/#/d4p6n36[/url]
but that's just a still from her comic. in all honestly that should have been posted by detlef
alexiuss gave me one year of premium membership! :o

I don't think the style needed to be changed just because it was a guest piece, you know? Either way, you did a crazy good job with it.

Also I think this is a happy medium: [url=http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3655193/DettyComic.jpg][img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3655193/Dettycomicthumb.jpg[/img][/url] (click it)
Eh. I can see some of the differences in both the comics, but nothing that really offends the eye. If this was a one off guest comic, like the others he had a wile back, it probably wouldn't of been edited that much. It looks more like all the other RA strips. But I still understand the frustration of having your own art tampered with.
I haven't uploaded anything from my sketchbook in a while, and you will probably see the reason now.

en fleibete abegatt
you remind me i've got a whole book to upload [editline]14th February 2012[/editline] but it is not as nice as your pages
are we looking at the same sketches.
i meant the first few nice pages of studies and character doodles/designs rather than the rest of the shit
shit huh. hm.
Chesty your idea of "shit" is probably my definition of amazing. Also great sketches detlef.
> speak degradingly of your own work > question praise of your work > go all moody when someone speaks degradingly of your work in a hyperbolic way [editline]14th February 2012[/editline] ?
hey I did NOT say my work was shit, but I do believe you can do better than some of the stuff I did.
