Cafe Atlantis II by ekster Cafe Atlantis II by ekster
After a slight hiatus, I've decided to relive an old theme :)

So, here's another rendition of my Atlantis imagination, and I'm doing this one with a more vintage feel. The original one can be seen here: [link]

Edit: Added more outside scenery stuff for fun

Yeah, it's been awhile hasn't it... I've been working soooo much lately, and by the time I get back home I'm just so tired to do anything else but watch movies. Well, I do have an extended break coming up soon, so I'll probably do more projects then :)

Like mootsie said, it's too heavy on the right side, but I also see that it lacks of some dynamic overtone. To put it in some binary opposition, the light on the top right against the cream sofa shrouded the lady in the middle of the scene. The lady wore dark colors, as the background is relatively dark in tone, the visibly prominent figure is the sofa and the light due to the contrast they shared, but if we draw a line from the light, to the sofa, and straight to the left, you'll see how the picture felt pretty much static -as in dead.

Really good, this sure is an improvement! Composition is really much better, even if I think this is a bit "unbalanced": on the right part you have the lamp, the head of the woman and the teapot, that are all "heavy"... while on the left you have just the dolphins (that are part of the background, so they are less "prominent") and the cup of tea. Nothing that really matters, sure, but I just wanted to tell you my opinion :P

Hey thanks so very much for the in depth criticism my friend, I really appreciate that :) You definitely give some very valid points, and it's something I should definitely work on a bit more. Basically I got a bit lazy after finishing the cafe scene before going to the ocean, but now that I've had a bit of time and space to re-view it, I think I'll definitely try and add some things into the ocean scenery :)

wonderful! it really is. i actually like this one more than the original. maybe because its not as open as the original, i like the amount of space more. being closer makes it more of a place for thought and quiet like i believe the ocean would be. i think the tight space compliments the dark blues and works with the light to make the setting very comfortable and warm...if that makes any sense :) im also drawn into this version more probably because i like the choice for animal life,.....a dolphin is a very friendly silhouette to have. fonts are sometimes very difficult to get 100% right but you my friend did it, that font kicks ass for this piece! :D i missed this work, i love your style with it.
