Preparing for the Big Day
A really really over due post for Austin Madison's CHADES Challenge. The theme was "hairdressers of the dead". I had a lot of fun with this picture! There's nothing like creepy crawly creatures to keep us ladies looking our best in the afterlife!
I'm starting to worry about the colors showing up on my cintiq vs. the regular monitor again. (The last color test I polled delt with colors that were applied mostly with my old tablet, then adjusted later via cintiq.) As per usual, colors on the cintiq are always so much more vibrant than the colors I see on my other screen. To combat this, I've been trying to up the saturation and mess with the levels a bit...but then I start wondering if the colors look blown out on anyone else's monitors.
Here's what the original image looks like without any tinkering:
Compared to the colors I see on my cintiq...my regular monitor makes the colors appear very dull and sad looking. But who knows? Maybe the colors seem a bit brighter for everyone else? Does the top image look too blown out?
Please let me know...once again! XD
