through the forest by Apsaravis through the forest by Apsaravis
This image took me about a week of hard work, that background was the most time consuming. Painting it was really boring:roll:
I noticed that after uploading the pciture it gets a bit darker than it actually is, but when you look at the print preview it looks alright:O

Photoshop CS2

STEAL AND DIE.

Ooooo~ Another Deep-sea Angler inspired beast!! I personally like how it's so dark...it emphasizes the glowy stems and butterflies more! :aww: And the details of the background are amazing - I love how light filters through the trees as if creating a mist around the dinosaur (or dragon). That's a very nice effect! ^_^

This is so fantastic.. it made me hold my breath. The atmosphere is so enchanted, so intimate and fascinating. Wonderful. I'd buy the print but someone told me that dA prints are rather low quality... hrm.

Moim zdaniem bardzo klimatyczne... Podoba mi się ta głębia i te małe punkciki w ciemności, jakie stanowią zakończenia tego... Prześlicznego stworzenia.

Fakt, ta minaturce była ciemna plama, dopiero full view sprawił, że coś tu widać.
Widzę, że już na dobre polubiłaś te światełka, w sumie tu pasują bardzo, bo dzięki nim praca zyje, nabiera światła, bez którego byłaby zwyczajnie bura. Świetliki (czy co to tam ma być;) też nieźle tu pasują.

złudzenie, to przez jasne, świecące tło strony wydaje sie ciemniejsze XD

Śliczny jaszczur swoją drogą, zwłaszcza ten motyw z fosforyzującym grzebieniem.wygląda po prostu bosko :heart:

Gorgeous, I think it looks better a little darker.. could be the way your monitor is setup aswell ;)

Just had a look at the print.. think it's more to do with perspective, if you do small view on the original it has he same effect :aww:

Thanks, I'm really into dark and desaturated color schemes but I'm always afraid that people with older screens wouldn't see much:)

If they've got older screens it's their fault :P

Or are you talking about the lack of contrast with LCDs?
Which is true, they suck for that...
