lookin nice...needs a bit more touching up but it looks like it's coming along nicely...good too see you skinning again.
...i even like it better than romulus...looks more sleek...hope to see it up and running soon.
Yeah man lighting can be tricky for sure. You're lighting isn't bad at all man. There is only 2 or 3 spots that are slightly off but the rest is great. You can tell you have put thought into which is what counts.
The end result is what matters really. Nothing in the design is out of place or in your face so all is good. Keep flowing with it buddy. I'll be keeping an eye on your progress
I'm really liking this one buddy. Great design. It all flows well too. Can't wait to see the final result
One improvement would be to pay a little more attention to where abouts light is coming from. A few areas are a little unrealistic. But hey, that's scraping the bottom of the barrel of being picky. It's all great work. Take care now
I've honestly never been too good with lighting but i do keep it in mind. for most of my skins, including this, i picture the light from the top of the skin, but i just lack the skills/experiance to draw it up exactly the way it should be. I think of lighting as the biggest weakness in my skins. judging lighting is one of the hardest things for me to do. i dont know if some designers just picked it up or took a class on it to figure it out, i have pretty much come this far by trial and error.
Good designers have always mentioned it to me in my skins and i try to improve with every new design. it blew me away how lighting comes so naturally to some of them.
oh my god!!!!! i almost want to kiss you! so glad that you're back skinning! i want all the "old" skinners to do so, and i wish i could do something to make them want to make skins again, like you do, but i have'nt got the skills anymore i feel.. never that i have HAD any either, but i was better before..
thanks. it does. im also doing a better shine on the lcd - this one was just for the preview. some more lights here and there too. the layout on the lcd will probably get changed eventually. I haven't had an idea for it yet.
