Arabian nights, advice needed

Post by Mellaa » Sat Jul 08, 2017 1:52 pm

Hi everyone!

So I'm working on my new layout.. Called Arabian Nights (an Aladdin version)
I'm still working on the main part of the left image (scenery with a big moon and half in front of it are Aladdin and Jasmine on the flying carpet)
But I might need some advice on how to proceed on the moon, and what colors I should use..
Also, the magical lamp is hideous, and I'm working on it ^-^

It's going to be placed on the left of the webpage (that's why it's sort of cut off on the left side)..
And at the right I'm going to put something small below the navigation and the chatbox..
I want this to finish first, before starting on the right side.

There's stars coming later as well

I'm afraid I won't be of much help, as my skill level is far below yours. :p I would suggest something with a more gold/yellow hue though (even if heavily desaturated) just to tie it back to the lamp.

Thank you for the input.. I will definitely use it, it's good advice, one I actually hadn't thought of ^-^
Is the color pallet of the background alright, it seems as there is too much contrast with the darker blue colors?

Haha, well, I absolutely love contrast, so it's fine by me!

This looks amazing so far! I think for the moon, maybe use a very light hand to just add in the detail of the craters to give it some detail, but not too much. And depending on your style, if it's for a website you could definitely anti-aliase the edges of the 'smoke' to blend in with the background colour.

Thank you for the advice, I'm going to finish it soon. I'm taking a break for a couple of days, I have stared at it too long already xD
