Moment - Work in Progress 17 by jocarra Moment - Work in Progress 17 by jocarra
I'm very, very frustrated. On my monitor, the darks show up perfectly, and you can see all the detail. On everyone else's monitor, the darks all show up as straight black, with only the lightest colours showing up, making the picture look way higher contrast than I intended. I have no idea what to do about it...

Ugh.

Anyways, other than the fact that it only looks like the way I want it on my monitor, I think it's turning out well so far... at least on my monitor...

Commission for ~Kintari of his character.

It looks awesome so far, and I can see lots of detail although I don't know if it's all there is to see or how you intended it.

Ahh, yeah. It seems to be really highly dependent on how bright one's monitor is =/

*nods* That's about right. Not too greeny, but a little greeny with some goldish highlights.

WOOT! its kinda weird how peoples monitors are different colours etc and they end up painting and realising its the wrong colour when they veiw it on someone elses.. i wish it was easier just like knowing the paper is white and you know what colour pencils you are using :)

*chuckles* I know... That's why I really want to get my monitor professionally calibrated, or to be told exactly how to calibrate it, perfectly. Those strips of black-grey-white things aren't good enough.

Ah I have the reverse problem on my monitor...all the settings are as bright as they can go but things looks horribly dark on it still. Pain in the butt... Yet...this picture looks alright, which means it can't be that bad! I was expecting to see just a black box. XD

You're right about that. It's completely different on my monitor at work and the home one. At home I see the picture like it's supposed to be; at work everything looks dark :o

Now I can easily understand, why designers are sticking with CRT monitors...

Meh. I love my LCD monitor, and I wouldn't be trading it for any CRT :]


BTW; Awesome artwork (as usual)... Can't wait to see it done. And yay for different eye colors <3

*nods* I love my monitor, but it's terrible for painting accurately :(

I just need to learn how to fix my gamma...

The problem is; no matter how much you "fix" your monitor; on some monitors the picture will still be "broken".

You just can't avoid that...

Oh, of course. I just want to calibrate MY monitor, at least, to be correct. I'm having huge problems doing that, though. I know how to do it, theoretically, but it never seems to work out right...

Thank you very much, it's always good to hear from you :hug: You don't think the contrast looks weird? It's okay on my monitor, but on other monitors it looks bad =/

Hmm how you mean weird? On this monitor it looks like nice, I see normally the strong contrast and the details with it too.
I will check it out at home with my monitor too ok? Maybe I will see what you mean than :)

Hmm. It's just that there is too much black on most people's monitor, and very little black on mine. I don't want it to be that dark. Dark, but not ALL BLACK, which is how it's showing up on others' monitors. >:E

Yeah, *nods* That's what I mean. I know how to fix my monitor, but for some reason, I can't get it quite right :S :(

But yes, you see what I mean? Some really slight details get missed, but on mine they don't. On mine, you can see EVERYTHING! :evillaugh:
