Hey everyone. I was recently reminded of an awesome artist Alex Ross, you might remember him as the artist behind "Marvels". I was playing around in photoshop just trying to get my 3d render to look a bit more like one of his paintings. I noticed that his art seems to have super bright highlights, and really dark shadows, and some of it has a watercolor paint feel to it. Anyway take it or leave it ;) i had fun. As always, comments on how to improve it are more than welcome.

Thanks for the comments so far. For this pic, I loaded one of my other renders into photoshop and applied various filters and did some editing to make it more closely resemble an Alex Ross painting. The textures on spidey are by Kreatybo, meant for michael 3.0 in Poser.

Whilst I'm not familliar with the Alex Ross style, I think you've managed to hit your goal. I usually tweak my blackest blacks and whitest whites in photoshop using the level command. Cool image of spidey, both the POV and hispose rock!
Nice work for sure!!

@newbie renderer- yes i used levels to try to get the shadows and highlights to have a high contrast. i also used multiple layers, duplicates of the image with levels and gaussian blur applied to give the highlights more of a flare.
well as i said, i was just playing around after looking at some alex ross art. i've got some more renders in the works, not sure when i'll finish though. thanks for looking everyone! and good luck on your own projects
