Do Vampires Dream Of Emo Sheep?
Ah yes, forward the progress. This is my cover page for Digital Tools. I learned how to use custom brushes here, but did not actually use any. Any further edits to this that I make would be well and moot, since the grade won't change any. However, for the sake of improvement, further analysis reveals that the floating platform neither looks like its floating, nor does it actually conform to the basic lighting of the background. I suspect it has something to do with how there's no way cast shadows could extend like that in an environment of such diffuse lighting. The improbable floating thing is probably because the center piece was cleaned too sharply before being plopped into the background. Looks unnatural. The brushwork for applying the textures was a bit heavy handed, particularly in the cliff area on the left. (Note to self: create actual custom brushes next time).
