Did you try adjusting your screen settings?
Even if I did it wouldn't make a difference. I just don't understand why you would make it so bright. I mean there's obviously a reason but it really puts me off hiring people who do it. This is on DA btw not here!
I'm sure some artists use the effect well. But when many jump on a trend, they're not necessarily all capable of controlling the results?
And if the characters aren't recognizable, it could be an artistic 'cheating' technique as well.
Don't know what you're referring to exactly so I'm all speculation and leprechauns here.
On the very blinding bright side.. I have good news! (kind of..).
It's the way they colour in, its almost as if someone is shining a bright light on the picture and the face looks really white.
an example. It's not that the art work is bad or anything, its just the unnatural brightness puts me off.
Such pretty art! but I understand what you mean. There is a lack of contrast. It's true we see this coloring style a lot, esp. for covers.
I know, the art itself is great, but the brightness ruins it for me!
