    Cheers mate, I'm glad you like it. And thank you for the support!


    So I've decided to spend some time to finish up my Aliens diorama. With
    construction done, it needs a lot of work on the paint job.

    I wanted to go for that dirty hive-overruning-the-industrial-complex look that
    we got in the film, but for some reason it all looked a bit washed out, with no real
    contrast and zest.



    Turning up the contrast, saturation and *warmth* in GIMP gave me this image, which I liked
    very much. Everything seems on edge, vibrating with power and danger (this is the image I posted on IG):



    About the only thing in this image that I don't like is the sameness. Everything
    is warm. I want to build contrast between the marine & the industrial terrain, vs the alien in its organic nest.

    So I went back over the marine's light again, turning it colder and adding a blue fringe, by using
    FW white ink and their transparent blue ink.



    Pushing the contrast of this photo gives me this:



    which I like very much. So closing the circle:



    I think I want the cold light from the marine, with the cool dark shadow he's casting, but with
    that freaky bright warm light coming from the alien.

    Something kinda like this image, which I stitched together from the original two (again in GIMP):



    If I can get there, I'll be happy. More work to be done...

    I have now finished the diorama, and I'm finally happy with the lighting situation. The mood and colors are what I had in my head, and I don't want to mess with it any more
    If you have a chance, please vote for it on putty & paint: https://www.puttyandpaint.com/projects/33483

    This is so damn marvelous- what a terrific theme and capture of a scene right from the best sci fi / horror franchise ever.

    Wow. It is great to see the difference between the yellow lighting and the blue. The change to blue improved this 100 times. Very nice.

    Great contrasts of warm and cool colors. The change to blue light really makes the marine feels isolated and alone, and the warm tones really help the Alien blend into its background, but not so much it is lost. Definitely gives you a vibe that the marine is going to be in trouble in a second.
