This is so gorgeous. I have to say, I got the prints from the Kickstarter and I'm a little disappointed that they didn't preserve the contrast nearly so well as it shows up on the screen. They still look good, just not as amazing as the digital versions.
Yeah, I noticed that the colors on this one in particular lost a little bit of contrast in the 11x14 prints, but I think they're still okay. The giclees turned out really great, and the version in the book, as well; I'll just have to try to do a better job calibrating to each individual printer (since all were printed through different services) next time. The place I got the 6x8 and 11x14 prints was my first time working with this particular printer.
I totally understand; I do a lot of digital prints myself and it's always a toss-up to see if they'll print correctly. I only got the prints, so I don't have any comparison to the giclees or the book.
Are you planning to offer prints of these images in the future? I would maybe consider re-ordering one or two of them (like this one) that lost a bit of contrast in printing if it meant I got an image a little closer to the digital version. And there are some of your other pieces I'd like to maybe get prints of as well.
This is absolutely beyond words. It's so beautiful! I love the contrast of her robes with the sky, the patterns on her robe and the design in the sun, and the night sky beyond her, like she's the night itself and tucks the sun away inside her arms while she sleeps with the rest of the world. I love this so much. Absolutely gorgeous and stunning!
A few questions: will you be selling prints of these after the Kickstarter? I would LOVE to buy all the prints, but I am low on cash right now and don't know if I can afford to contribute, even though the Kickstarter deal is fantastic.
Also, what program do you use to paint? Photoshop? Painter? Something else?
This figure, and any that could accompany its world, should have it's own mythos. This is so evocative and fantastic, you've really created something gorgeous and the sense of power and wonder you set up is stellar.
