Little boxes

By TanyaH
Oddly enough, this one was part of the recent art walk I did Smile Not art as such, but quite artistic for a mass block of human habitation! (The tilt is deliberate, by the way - I really couldn't be bothered to do the whole correcting verticals thing, so went the lazy route instead!)

Will all the occupants slide to the end?

I like this - it's exactly like a model I recently made.

Certainly a good way to avoid having to correct your unvertical verticals!! Grin Works very well, Tanya Smile

And they're all made of ticky-tacky. And they all look just the same.

Looks like good urban decay - you have to look closely to see they are still inhabited.
The moody treatment looks very good, and as I really like the muted colours (the blues contrasting with that one yellow lamp) I don't think a mono version would be as effective.

A tad scary, reminds me too much of a desk top computer with the people inside just components.......Sad

Good picture though! Smile

Thanks all Smile
Keith - I did try a mono version, but it lost those cool blue hues and, of course, that one yellow lamp that hints at habitation. This version is actually a combination of the original (blue/green (as it came out of the camera) and brighter) and a mono version. I can't remember which blend mode I used at what opacity, but that's how this particular subdued feeling came about.

Seems my thoughts re mono were on the similar lines then.

That's an interesting technique, combining mono and colour. i've done something similar on the odd occasion though I think most of the time I just changed opacity and I certainly wouldn't remember which blend mode. I tend to flick through them until I find one that I like.

Quote:I tend to flick through them until I find one that I like.

And you think I do it differently, Keith?! Grin Nah ... I do exactly that. Flick through them until something leaps out and says 'stop!'. In theory, I know which ones are in which groups and (loosely) what they're supposed to do, but it's much more fun experimenting somethings ...
