Perceived Color at Low Light Levels
At low light levels, blue and green objects appear brighter than red ones when compared to their relative brightness in stronger light. This effect is known as the Purkine Shift.In the Purkinje shift, the dark adapted eye becomes more sensitive to blue than to red as the retinal rods take over from the cones.When the light become brighter, there is another in hues, called the Bezold-Brucke effect. This causes most colours to appear less red or green and more blue or yellow as the intensity of the light source increases.
Hey, thats slightly more in-depth than was required, but yes. Also, as the retinal rods take over almost fully (the green receptive cones are the last to give up, hence the Purkine shift) night vision becomes less color sensitive, with less perceptual hue contrast.
What this boils down to while pixelling is that in shadows, or night, or low light, the colors are not just darker. They usually lose saturation as well (or applying saturation loss is a good way to emulate the effect anyway).
Ireland, your lineart is good, and clean. The cow will be small when you color it - good luck. Your UFO is very pointy on the ends for a round object too (only by about 2 pixels i believe). See if you can fix it, if you need help let me know and I'll post an edit.
Everyone get that?
Welcome to the class Bel and Godslayer. If you have studied the thread so far, please prepare a 64x64 lineart on the Alien Invasion theme (no UFO's from now on... be creative
YOU NEVER FRIGGIN TOLD ME WHETHER IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE LINEART OR A SQUIGGLE.
Evan: I said a WIGGLE not a squiggle OR lineart. Interpret it your own way, thats what art is about.
Ok, while we wait on the stragglers with lineart, first students start coloring pieces please.
If anyone would like direct or private help just PM me.
