Ok so I think it's time to start talking lighting and stuff. Here are a couple passes I would really like critiqued before I move on to finishing the piece.
Blue shadows, tan rocks. Blue sky, big sun. This one has more of a just-after-sunrise feel. Jeremy said it should be warmer.
Above is color corrected for my stupid laptop. I will fix these in the future.
Not color corrected.
Warmer rocks/shadows. I wanted you to see the vastness of the landscape. The idea behind this one is that there used to be a traveled side road going to a place called "Big Al's Oasis" and that's why a gas station popped up. But when Big Al's shut down there wasn't much hope for the gas station. (The gas station is called Brigham's Squeaky Clean Gasoline). The gas station I wanted to feel like an "oasis" (loosley meaning a small populated area) too in the middle of a very flat, dirty and empty desert landscape. The clouds act like mountains on the horizon in every direction. Why? Because I thought it'd be cool.
Please comment. Thanks!
