Hello all! Some of you may remember me from before; some of you may know me as Jenkem. I was logged out of my account and unable to log back in for quite some time because the password retrieval system was glitched (it wasn’t reading my password, and it told me it didn’t recognize my e-mail when I put it in to reset my password).
My first picture is a bit of an experiment. For anyone wondering about the squiggly visual effects, they aren’t a Gimp filter; I used the morph tool. It was in an attempt to simulate either visor glass or perhaps tear/sweat-blurred vision (it’s already blurred a lot because the guy is dying and probably cannot concentrate very well).
This picture is more of a concept than an actual posing attempt, and I’m not pleased with the actual picture itself. It’s just to show a concept for a potential humor comic I thought up (working title “Team Epic”) involving a mish-mashed team of dimension-hopping mercenaries. Here, they are seen holding off off-screen pirates on some water planet, floating on their space barge built from old train cars.
I remember you, Muffin. Anyways, I really like the second picture. The editing isn’t perfect but it’s a cool picture. The first picture is odd - I wouldn’t have know it was an FPS pose if you didn’t say so because the hand and pistol are so far to the outside of the picture.
It is kind of far off to the side, but he’s also supposed to be kind of faint and woozy from being injured, and therefore he isn’t going to line up the shot just right (his arm is laying beside him, and he probably just picked it straight up to point it at the Russian guy). I’ll try to avoid that problem in the future, though.
DoF tends to fuck up with water for me, but in the first picture there is an border on the roof where the blur randomly stops, its pretty distracting from the main action and looks like simple DoF (Instant edges)
