Rob Chant is having some posting issues right now so I get to do the honors.


I think that this will be a very effective backdrop. This section is 8 feet long. It will be behind the 4 foot artillery module I have plus one under development to the right of it that will have casualties. The Casualties will be under the caption and poppies.

Thank you so much Rob.

You're welcome Larry! I will post some bigger photos and progress shots of the other sections when I get access to my server again. I'm hoping it will be later today.

Take care,
Rob.

Hi Carl,

It was hand drawn in Photoshop.

Take care,
Rob.

very nice backdrop. Will set the mood perfectly.
And nice to such great co-operation from both you forum members. Larry, you're very lucky having Rob on board. He does excellent work, and is always generous with help.

Rob, Frank, Bill, & Kevin:

Thanks for the kind words!

The backdrop has gone thru a lot of changes and improvements since Larry posted that rough draft. However, I still can't access my server yet, so it might be another day or two before I can post some bigger photos.

Take care,
Rob.

Rob, Wow! That looks awesome! What's the resolution of the backdrop?
Can I suggest tryin an experiment. The sky has a great hazy look to it with its subtle gradiation. What do you think about
making a copy of the mural and applying just a little gaussian blur to everything so the trees, demolished buildings and distant hills have just
a little less sharp edges? Then compare the two to see which effect looks better overall.

I like Rob's "Sharper Image" more than the subtle gradiation version. Just MHO but the gradiation makes my eyes try to focus and it doesn't work. Nothing personnel Bill, just MHO.
