I really like the direction of these pieces. The colors are excellent and the mood very different from anything else of yours I've seen. How do you draw the edges of your colors, directly with a paintbrush tool or with a selection mask that you fill with a gradient, perhaps?
thanks chuck i use the selection tool and then dodge or airbrush them in, i only use gradients for large fill areas
This is awesome stuff, Travis. Whatever form this finally takes I will beat a path to buy it.It's a great idea. Digging into the past can be such an inspiring and fulfilling process. I have a couple of these historical fantasy ideas lying around the Blue Moon pile (as in I'll get to them in the next blue moon). I have an exploration of the evolution of culture and religion via Arthurian romance featuring an all animal cast (gasp) and a sort of fantastical history of Kentucky set mostly in the mid 1700s.What inspired you to use WWI and II?
I dig your curly clouds. In fact, they inspired me on an upcoming ATLAND.
i just had family fight in both of those wars and i was a history major in the few years i went to college- which I still sort of dabble in at times for ideas. I love though 1910 to about 1947 - the art, style everything is very cool.Thanks nate - i am glad you can play with the clouds and that it inspired you:)trav
You're absolutely right about that time period. It was incredible on all fronts. I guess the same can be said of all periods, but that one holds a special place. It isn't every day you fight a world war and make paradigm shifts in science and philosophy.
