This is Rosie, Chronotechnician 50016 and Slig Soldier 50017. This is my first attempt at greyscale and truly I don't know why I didn't just do a single figure on the first go. There must be something wrong with me to have thought I could pull this off, but once I began, there was no turning back. I entered it in the Reaper Paint into a Picture Challenge. One of the requirements of the Challenge was that the work be photoshopped into the picture. ShadowRaven most kindly did that for me. We were only allowed four photographs for the Challenge, but I did take some close up shots to show more of the small detail within the dio. I know I made quite a few mistakes here and those were do to inexperience and lack of planning. However, I don't regret completing and submitting the piece as it has been a good learning experience. C&C are most welcome. Any input on the composition of the scene would be greatly appreciated as I think I may have crammed way too much into the scene. Thank you for your time.
Okay, so I decided to try something new and I may have gotten myself into a bit of a pickle. In an effort to get away from assaulting people with so much colour, I've decided to do an entire vignette in greyscale. So here's some test shots of where I'm at right now. Rosie, Chronotechnician Slig Soldier I used grey's that had a blue bias, but I'm not sure if that was the right approach. Things seem to be running together a bit and I don't think I have enough separation between clothes, skin, weapons etc. I've looked at these pieces for so long that I'm losing perspective. I could use a fresh pair of eyes and advice from people who understand the fundamentals of the technique. Also, I'm not sure what kind of background to shoot this against. This isn't working and I can't afford to print off a whole load of backgrounds to find one that is right. So if anyone has an idea of what hues I should look for it would be most appreciated.
