SW, agreed. There is something dynamic about those meteorological shots.

Deacon, I sometimes have the urge to redo the shot because I feel the effect is too subtle. Maybe need to start adding the original images to compare the differences. winkngrin

Well, the original of the last one is in the Screenshots thread.

For the most part I like the effect at larger sizes. It looks like a full sized painting. Shrunk down to 1650, it loses a lot of the detail.

Some of the more pronounced shots here look more like, say 8x10 sized paintings where the oils look a little less sharp. I tend to prefer the larger sizes since I have always been reminded of the big oils of artists like Stokes when looking at WOFF shots.

Something like this shot where the lines are still pretty sharp.



The portrait shots of course show more of the texture.

I just have to accept that in the default viewing size on the webpage, the effect is diminished. I'd love to be able to post a 2k shot, but understand the size limitations.

Ah well, they look good on my desktop! biggrin

Fullofit, don't add the original images, this is the pleasure of the WOFF Art Thread. The pictures on this thread should stand on their own, whatever differences, they take on their own life. IMHO SW

Yeah, Steve brings up a good point. This is a no judgement thread. If you want to paint it pink, have at it! Self expression is the rule of the day.

Worry not Gentlemen. Just thinking aloud.

Deacon, you mean something like this?

Well, actually your shot above (love the paint job BTW) reminds me more of a large oil where the details are very sharp.

The lower one is very cool and the trees and the clouds particularly look hand painted. I think the aircraft look just a hair softer which gives (me) the impression of a courser brush or a smaller canvas.

On the web page though, the lower shot really highlights the paintedness of the picture, where the upper looks more like the direct screenshot.

All subjective of course. Both shots look cool and I could absolutely see someone thinking they were paintings.

For my own part, the shots that I really think come out looking cool in 2k, lose much of the effect as I resize them...even if I resize them first.

Another great artist is our own Roen. I think he really captures the surreal quality of a good aviation painting. That almost too sharp to be real quality.

I'm hoping that he doesn't mind me posting one of his images here:

Ah, no worries from me, I'm just enjoying what's being displayed. I've submitted in the 'regular' WOFFUE image thread, but I've been a photographer for years, and although I like 'straight' photos, I'm always fiddling. So this is fun. Keep 'em coming guys. That 'too sharp to be real' quality is interesting. I have the whole set of books illustrated by Rikyu Watanabe, WWII. They are captivating. I've probably seen more of that look for WWII rather than WWI. SW

Maybe these incredible Artwork shots are what WOFF UE will look like if the advances of WoTR are ported back into UE. smile

Nice, cptroyce! Very cool.
Sun just coming up, intercepted a flight of Gothas heading home. Murderous buggers! but should be big enough to hit! even for me.

Thanks Steve; really enjoying this thread and everyone's postings here.

WOFF graphics and mods lends itself to creating terrific WW1 aviation shots!

Fullofit, close quarters huh? Nice, and has that great weather atmosphere too.
Got one! SW

Way to go, Steve! And not a scratch on you.

Yeah, almost too close. I always press the pause button when one thing flies close to another thing. Usually good shots come out of it.

Fullofit, well, not yet! There's always the talk about immersion on the forum, but I can't help hitting pause and enjoying the sights. Really a dream come true. SW

I was feeling pretty confident so I thought I'd have a go at a second one.
But he wasn't too happy to see me coming. I don't like the welcome I received.

I fly recreationally, so I don't mind the pause button either. Otherwise you'd see cockpit views only. Did you meet those Gothas in a campaign, or did you set up a QC mission? Nice soft glow effect BTW.

QC. Since the time that the Gothas were introduced into WOFF I hadn't checked them out. Wanted to see them and have a go at an interception. Ugly critters aren't they? In a beautiful WWI kind of way. SW
