Jerry, A birds' eye view would be most appreciated. ... And not to sound like a broken record, please submit your wonderful work as an Armorama Feature article — out front and foremost where it truly belongs.
I love this! I love the wounded gun commander in the doorway (Jerry's best ever figure?). I love the story telling with each image conveying a particular episode and I love the clever use of backdrop to give a grander sense of scale. They say imitation is the highest form of flattery so consider yourself flattered cos Im going to try and imitate the hell out of this.
Great stuff again, Jerry.
This is going to be fantastic once it's done. As Tim said, one can almost sense them breathing...
Maybe put some paint on the edges/back of the foremost backdrop to hide the little white marks.
Really looking forward to the next post(s).
No worries re PM. Thanks
Hi Jerry - lots of good work and discussion going on here.
I like your readjustment of the backdrop - it looks like you slightly raised the right side - which in turn, slightly adjusted your vanishing point, making the painted building's back wall more in keeping with the perceived vanishing point of the built structure - whew!! A lot of words there! Haha - it looks spot on.
As to the conversation, less is more, keep it simple....for me those are more than simply valid points, and a lot easier said than done! Sort of like the apparent ease in making something look random - it's a lot easier to slip into some pattern or other...which you can't really see while doing it, but becomes immediately obvious when done. I think these challenges make this so interesting to try to do. Like knowing, or more honestly figuring out, when to add lots of detail and when not to - all part of the fun.
Ok - no more coffee for me! Nice work
