it's been awhile, I'm slacking like a month already.. some light hearty speedy to lighten the mood. A preliminary sketch for a local mag cover, though going to dump this since they want something else.
color fading.. you mean like D.O.F (depth of field) or something. If that is I'll take note, thanks and don't bothered by all the ohs and wows too much, suggestion is the warmest of all reply. I really appreciate that.
DOF usually means blur, but color fading is something you see everywhere... for example if you look at landscape you may notice that objects that close to you have more vibrant colors (more saturated) with strong values while distant objects tends to fade almost mixing with background colors. If you take the same object and place it on foreground and background the colors wouldn't be the same. In painting it means don't paint with the same color everywhere, adjust your palette to create an illusion of depth (of course you can use DOF effect too).
Opinion is a clause friend. A knight's worth is his sword, do he live or turn long-forgotten soil underneath an unmarked grave. Treasure it, he abandoned knighthood. Carve it, a biblical destiny, an ages of conquest, honour and prosperity.
