ok, so continued from last time, I added some shadow behind my character.
Here I noticed the light ran our before the cut off line so I added some more light.
Then I trimmed it back to the cut off line.
I started working into the teleportation pod to give it some depth.
viewing it without the light source....
Then I tidied the layers up a bit and put all the colour samples into one layer. After this I turned the visibility of these off so I could see how the painting looked so far without blobs of colour in the way.
In this one I attempted to add some steam/ mist coming out of the pod to give that 'eery something has just happened' feel.
And then viewed it with the light source on.
I merged some more layers to tidy things up.
Now some more colour editing.
Highlights on the close up areas near to the desk lamp.
Adding some higher contrast for the 'strong light' effect.
Some vivid blue to liven things up a little.
Ok, and again.... so far
