General Guan Yu part 2

Posted in WIP on March 31, 2009 by yuquan

i retouched on the photoshop/painter assignment and i gotta say it looks better than the first attempt. i changed the angle of the stance, focused more on the forshortening along with many other minor adjustments. for comparative and convenience of viewing purposes i re-posted the first picture.guan-yu4


guan-yu23might give it one last go, but probably wont get back to it for a very long time. also, i had pretty hard time saving it to view on the web, being that the original is in adobe 1998. The colors came out all bland and almost monotone, but i think i fixed it by saving it in photoshop as “save for web” (a-duh! i’m such an idiot.) and made sure that it was sRGB instead. :p

Saturday i went out for my friend Justin’s birthday. I didn’t get home til 3 am. i slept till 7am and had to go to work from 8-4pm. got home… procrastinated a bit and finally around midnight the snowball has picked up enough momentum and size to go down the hill by itself. I didn’t sleep thinking the assignment for Willam Low’s was due. turns out it wasn’t. we have another week on it. he said it wasn’t going to make much of a difference because with past experience most students who plead for an extra week to hand in an assignment don’t have any drastic improvement from what they already have. This is what i have

guan-yu1project is to find a picture and change the clothing, scenery and lighting on it. i’m not done with it though, theres still a couple of things i’d like to do with it.
