I've noticed you using a lot of final effects on your pieces lately. Usually it comes out pretty well, but I have to ask: Have you ever considered making this an integral part of the piece?
For instance, this image: It looks like you've applied an old rawhide canvas overlay, which adds a spiderweb of light and dark tones across. It works real well on hazy fire-lit stone, which is probably why you chose to do it here. Would you consider actually going out, getting an old-style canvas, and painting a piece like this? I'm always a fan of trying new things, and I think it could look really cool.
At least, I'm pretty sure I'm reading this right. As always, correct me if I'm wrong.
Oh, and - I recognize a lot of the symbols on the wall there. Is there a hidden message here or did you just draw pretty pictures XD
just did pretty pictures but i wanted it to be related to the elements of harmony of centuries ago.
oh, painting in real life sounds really interesting,but i´m afraid the two or 3 times i tried, i failed epically.as it is interesting i will try again sometime, do not worrie but my first challenge is making something really simple,just base colors and linearts in photoshop. i tengo to add things all the time i overdo it :/
Don't worry, I've failed at painting pretty much every time I've tried it.
Let's see if we can retcon this...
Last four lines are: Tongue, ~, Eye, (several covered symbols), appx. equals sign, crow's footprint ++, 3dCart plane, a cloud, 3 hoz lines, (covered), two hoz lines, lightning glyph, two hoz lines Balloons, Rainbow Lightning, Sun, Wind, Tornado, Sleet Iota, III, Ladybug, Fly, II, two hoz lines.
I'm going to say... (Tongue, ~, Eye) "What I say is what I have seen." (several covered symbols) "The key to find the next bearers of the elements" (appx. equals sign, crow's footprint) "Will be those who can fly." (++, 3dCart plane, a cloud) "Many souls, living high above in the clouds" (3 hoz lines, (covered), two hoz lines, lightning glyph, two hoz lines) "Bound together by a blinding light." (Balloons, Rainbow Lightning, Sun, Wind, Tornado, Sleet) "Surprise, Dash, Celestia, Soarin, Fleetfoot, Rapidfire." (Old version of Pinkie Pie, Rainbow Dash, Princess Celestia, and 3 Wonderbolts) (Therefore Symbol, III) "They may be, or bring to bear" (Big Bird, Little Bird, II, two hoz lines) "all the future Pegasus of the Elements."
You can make up something for the symbols to the left of that, perhaps introducing the prophet who wrote the symbols. Sound like fun?
PS: Retcon means 'retroactive continuity' - adding an explanation to something and pretending it was meant to be that way the whole time.
whooo! that was very amazing! it´s great what you did with my gibberishes XD now the picture has some interesting value thanks to you rettro,seriously i am very surprised how well it works your retroactive continuity <3
