wow, un escenario con mucha con mucha complejidad, un increíble manejo de perspectiva áerea, y excelente composición, además que el manejo de colores es muy agradable. Un detalle impresionista que te hace ver la imagen por muchisimo tiempo. También me gustó mucho tu manejo de luces. Hay un espacio que hace descanzar a la vista, que es aquel punto de color crema del cielo que aun nos hace ver algunos edificios muy lejanos, en mi humilde consideraciòn le hubiera dado más espacio, ya que siento que el punto visual de descanzo es importante para no saturar tanto a la vista y cansar, pero es solo un detalle, la verdad la escena funciona a la perfección.
I know most colors in your piece uses warm colors, and it's much more different for what I'm going for in this picture. I was just wondering how your experience was and what thought process lead you to choose these colors and know where to put them. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Hmm, well, to be honest, it seems to be a very popular topic that of cluttered buildings, specially those that have Japanese or Chinese letters and symbols on them.
I got inspired from photos of Hong Kong, and some brazilian "favelas". The design is not that hard, really, is easy to develop such a look, as I said, it has become quite popular
As for the lighting. Well, thats a little bit harder. XD It's hard for me to explain how I choose colours. Many people asks me, but I often get to the point were studying, practicing, and direct observation, are key.
I've seen that many people just add colours form what they think the color is. But what I've recently noticed is that if you actually think of color as a piece of light being reflected, and not just as "red" or "blue" you can achieve much better results. What I say is that try not to think on single colours, such as "reds" or "blues" but try to picture the source of lights and how the light travels along the picture.
Lets say you have a red bulb. That will shoot red light rays, and they bounce on a wall, which makes two things: 1-it absorbs some light, 2-it reflects another. The reflection is the actual color of the wall. then you keep "tracking" that ray, figuring out what is happening to it with the surroundings.
Yeah, think also of color theory, to add that "style" and artistic sensibility to the picture. You can enhance certain areas, tell the viewer where to look, by changing some colours, pumping up some saturations, etc.
Well haha, not sure if what I've written is clear enough, or makes some sense XD But please, let me know if it helps you, and I'll be very glad to see where you go with it So, if you have any questions, or tips, or ideas, let me know!
By the way, you've got quite a nice style, keep it up
