Forlorn Haze - 100% Vector SciFi Illustration

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. This is a piece I finished recently in Affinity Designer. I wanted to create the look and feel of 70s retro scifi illustrations and at the same time I wanted to stay 100% vector. No traces, no bitmaps, no pixel layers. Critique, opinions and questions welcome :D

Excellent work. Can I ask if you've done this in 8 or 16 bit? The reason I ask is I can see a tiny bit of colour banding. I'm currently working on an all vector piece and noticed I had the banding issue. Once I upped to 16 bit all the banding vanished... Unless of course that is a 70s look you've gone for? lol Either way I'd certainly say you achieved what you set out to do.

I worked in 16bit. But converting back to JPG for web display makes the banding reappear albeit to a somewhat lesser extent

I find it very cool, visually speaking. :14_relaxed:
Maybe you could add one single (even mysterious) element, in order to make the storytelling a little bit more exciting.

I actually felt the same. I tried a bit of stuff... In the end I think it was my initial lack of planning the piece and instead diving right in ("I want to do stuff now!!!!"). I stopped at some point and just got on with it. But the point is definitely VERY valid and I'll keep it in mind for new projects... unless my impatient me wins again ^^'

I think the fog is making the story,
