Farewell -07 remake- by Kencho Farewell -07 remake- by Kencho
This is an image I should've done a while ago. It's a remake of [link]
I'm leaving the original piece here too, as there will probably be people that like the old more.

I was looking a strong contrast with a main backlight focus. That's why the lighting is not the most correct, but I like how it feels :)

Now some details:
Raindrop splashes and light scattering in the hair. Depth of field in the rain too.
[link]
Raincoat's leather texture
[link]
Fog texture. The rocks of the ground aren't detailed as they indeed aren't a relevant element and didn't want them to catch the viewer's attention.

Pretty much the same: Comments and critics are far welcome!

Actually, both :) I did the original when I was going through a pretty bad moment. It was kind of "virtually leaving a place -an old myself" :)

This is an impressive work. I especially like how the rain drops dance off his shoulders and the walkway. The lighting is very appealing. :clap:

:thanks: I'm glad you like this version. Most people prefer the old one over this, though it was just a quickie and has a huge amount of mistakes. Thanks! :hug:

In the old version. Tried to make this one flawless (though I still failed here... but am happier with it, technically speaking).

Hm, I do like the original much better, it has a spontaneity this one lacks. This isn't bad in the least, but the other grabs in a way this version doesn't. I think it's, I dunno, you seem to be trying to force it to be more realistic here, but the result is... indistinct. Partly because the rain and fog are less forceful, partly because the character takes up so much more of the frame here. The trailing belt also seems to just draw focus away from the hunched shoulders and turned head, which is where the eye should be drawn.

Anyway, this is good, but the original was great! But then I'm certainly no painter, either. :)

Thanks for the input :) Many people has already told me they prefer the former as well. That's probably the main reason why I didn't remove it and replace it with this one ;)

I like this one more, but as ever, it's all a matter of taste :)

It's not my best writing- I began it about a year ago and never finished it. There's a lot I'd like to change about it, but...meh. My writing style's changed since then, also.

The fog, the other textures and the new ground are better. But I preferred the other man silhouette.. :)
