Meh, been too long since I played with pixels. I'm a bit rusty, I'm afraid. :( I really shouldn't have used such a giant canvas size, but too late now.



And a3um blows my mind as usual. :D

I can't explain it to you any better than the link itself does

Crepuscular rays are rays of sunlight that appear to radiate from a single point in the sky, specifically, where the sun is. These rays, which stream through gaps in clouds or between other objects, are columns of sunlit air separated by darker cloud-shadowed regions.

Or just type "crepuscular rays" into Google Images.

is "heaven" in the sky? And seeing how it's called "God-rays" I would say yes, but it's up to the admins to decide.

too much dithering. Try a more simplistic look, and see how it looks.

Well, here's a wip. Tried to keep it simple, should use 6 or so colors.

It also has a dragon, I guess.

I like this dithering. Do you think I should change some colour of the palette? (17 colours)

@NeverCreature: ...That's 17 colors? Whoah! Yeah, you might want to do something about that. And not ALL of the dithering needs to go. I was talking mainly about the noise in the center of the bluer parts of the cloud. Seems unnecessary in my opinion.

@Graindolium: What's with all the creepy stuff?

@NeverCreature: UPDATE: Oh, now I see why. Forgot the shafts of light doubles your color count. I think you're fine. Still think the dithering needs some work, though.

a3um - it looks like we're going down a very similar path in terms of subject matter. however it should be worth noting that i went the opposite approach - less evil/dark, more natural/light. should be interesting to see how your piece finishes up. the composition is very nice :)

@Jeremy crepuscular rays come from the sun, not the son. See what I did there? I'm sorry, I had to.

I'm thinking I'm going to go for some "holy crap", a cartoon-ish piece of poop with some rays on it. Any thoughts?

That description doesn't sound like a crepuscular ray. Not every ray is a crepuscular ray.

Grandolium, you would be a great artist for the band Tool 

Philippe, I always love your scenes, but it seems like you have a consistent problem with pillow shading, which really hurt the look of your cool scenes.
