<TheLoneBadWolf> Oooh!! I love it!!We've been very busy putting together the Before & After Competition. It's all about using feedback (like this) on an old deviation to create a new one! If it sounds interesting, be sure to check it out!
<CrypticManifestation> very nice, I like the organic pose
<Taly5> thank you both!
<CrypticManifestation> very fluid and dramatic, I also like how the the contras between the background and the sky
<MilaineSummerset> yussa, this denies the title when not knowing the character is named stiff
<Taly5> haha - never thought of that
<MilaineSummerset> it's very lively and excellently put into motion
<CrypticManifestation> but I find myself wishing there was a bit more blue in the image, maybe reflected in the floor or the walls of the stadium
<TheLoneBadWolf> I love the weapon!! - A bit blue would have been nice too
<Taly5> I see your point
<MilaineSummerset> or just as well give the sky a bit of halftone yellowy for overall effect, also an option
<Taly5> I tried it - but the commissioner said he wanted plain day - and the yellow halftone made it look like evening
<TheLoneBadWolf> Yeah understandable. Commissioners can be picky
<MilaineSummerset> well then, question of taste also
<Taly5> well I know the background isn't much, it was my first try at a more uh... realistic one? - not the clouds though ^^
<TheLoneBadWolf> Well it was very good
<MilaineSummerset> i like it, it also has a dramatically looming perspective bend to it - kind of like a fisheye lens
<TheLoneBadWolf> Oui I agree
<Taly5> wish I knew what that was -.-
<MilaineSummerset> fisheye lens?
<CrypticManifestation> the bg is well done, varying the focus on it a bit more to differentiate the background from the main character would have brought more attention to the focus point
<MilaineSummerset> you seen the effect in inumerable documentaries and stuff i daresay
<Taly5> I bet I did but since I have no idea about cameras and stuff ...
<MilaineSummerset> it's that strangely stretched out picture with a wide angle of view, circularly extending the area the camera picks up - at the cost of a distortion of the flat view towards a bulged ...bubble thingie - or a fish eye, if one wants to call it that way
<Taly5> aah! gotcha! - thanks for explaining
