I have a weird question -- is your computer monitor callibrated to show a tonne of contrast? For some reason on my computer and JKatkina's, most of the images we see are not super contrasty, and I am wondering if it is a stylistic choice or if it's differing technical specs! I like the colours you're hinting at in this but I think it could stand to have a lot more dark/light contrast for added drama!
Probably a little of both! I've worked on a laptop screen for the last 9 years of my digital work, and only this year moved on to a full PC which I haven't done anything to adjust so far. I just haven't looked into it yet as it wasn't something I ever dealt with on Laptop..
And I'm not really a huge fan of 'Concept art' style extreme contrast, preferring more to let shapes and color dictate the image rather than pushing super darks and highlights to the point everything looks black and glowy.
Since I'm pretty much limited to what I see, and what things look like on an iPad, I have close to zero idea how my art is being translated to anyone else. I'm more than happy to accept any advice, guides or input on getting a better contrast set up going for my monitor to cut out the technical issues on contrast when viewed!
