Stronghold Crops by Hideyoshi Stronghold Crops by Hideyoshi
Aren't these cute? :)

I love cropping out certain frames of bigger images in order to create whole new little pics with interesting compositions.

Actually, the original image is so big that these crops are still only 50% of the original pixel size... o_O

I have adjusted the contrast and brightness.

Composition is something you're really into, isn't it..
I mean... usually someone cares most about an idea or emotion or something in a picture, but you have fun just messing with composition. That's neat.

yeah, I think so. I always make sure my composition is good, because in my book, that's very important for a successful artwork. :)

Your work is always so fun to look at. I get lost in it. There's a strong Syd Mead likeness going on there. Nice images.

naming Syd Mead in one stroke with my own name is always very humbling! Thanks!

Nice. It recalls Tank Man.

Cool if you think it as a (section of a) narrative, too.

jah wow. look at all those details.

do you color the image when it's really large to make it easier and then shrink it when you're done? just wondering. o o

I normally work at a resolution of 4000 px wide or high when I do a detailled painting. Shrinking down is only done for web-saving.
I work at 300 dpi also...
Thanks! :)

Very smooth. It's almost more of a 2d design piece.
I do feel like the tanks could be cropped a little better to make that frame more interesting.

i get the feeling that the tanks would get wtfpwned by other tanks if they don't have a decent air support with them... but i don't want to be the infantery meeting one of those evil things
