Inspired by the movie Annihilation.
Dude holy shit that looks like one of those surrealist paintings, what was your editing process? It's spectacular
Not sure, really. I just went nuts.
I had the regular procedure of taking multiple soft lamp screenshots form different angles and merging them as screen layers with low opacity in photoshop.
I also played around with an alpha pass by using it as a layer mask and then using the saturation option to reduce saturation (CTRL + U) some things at various distances and make others pop.
I just spent more time than usual. If you do that when editing, usually stuff pops in your head. I also didn't build this in a day. When you take a break from gmod and sleep over it, new ideas pop up in your head.
I'd say the biggest tricks I've used are the color tool to color the moss plants and the effect resizer tool to enlarge and resize things. Also using the material tool is great for this.
Please don't crop it. At least not the two soldiers on the right. The soldier that is closer to the middle, his pose is spectacular in my opinion because you can see he is standing in wonderment very clearly even though his back is to us. Among OTHER things.
Creative use of those props to make paint/colors flying
Absolutely jaw dropping. The style here is incredibly unique, some mix of industrial fallout type apocalypse, and the Annihilation feeling is very much there. The plastic/metallic splashes frame and compliment every subject and add a great deal to the composition
The picture was perfect in its original frame, don’t crop it.
This is pretty cool!
I love the atmosphere and its like one of those scenes in movies where the screen goes super slow and they play a music like this. I absolutely love it.
This is crazy good, love the colors and the editing! I really wish it was at higher res so i could see al the details up close.
If only I can camp in The Shimmer.
Ask and you shall receive.
16 MB version, might take time to load. I only go as high as poster 3 command because I'm afraid that it will crash gmod so this may appear jaggy up close.
If you'd told me about this color contrast on paper I'd have said you were mental but in practice it looks fucking amazing.
i like this very much, yes
