Time for a Team Beam by FrankieAlton Time for a Team Beam by FrankieAlton
Okay, I finally managed to make a whole picture with like full body and background and perspective and stuff! Wooooo!!!

I'm actually really proud of this one. Probably the best Captain Planet art I've ever done, imo anyway.

For the background I used this tutorial as guide for making the wooden pier: [link] Of course that tutorial gives you really perfect looking wood. I used some dingier colors and made the planks different sizes. Then I skewed the perspective and added a few nicks and so forth. But anyway, that was a good starting point.

I invented the water myself by playing around with some different filters and such. I forgot exactly what I did though. I did want it to look all green like that though, obviously that's why Wheeler is summoning CP cause the water is all polluted and junk. =P

The fire was based on a tutorial here on dA: [link] I was playing around with different ideas, but I liked the idea of actual fire coming from his ring the best. In the show there was normally just like a beam of light or something when they summoned CP, but I think the fire looks more badass. Of course it does kinda cover up the hand that I spent a long time drawing... *facepalm*

The title is because Wheeler is always saying "It's time for a team beam" on the show and it's so dorky. LOL.

Anyway yeah. I think that's it.

Wow, Della! Damn! That background IS awesome, and that perspective is not easy to pull off. I REALLY love the fire effect ring. Looks just like it did in the show when he was calling Captain Planet. :D :eager: You have seriously inspired me, or something! I hope you do more full-background images. Shit's hard, yo. But the only way we get better is to keep practicing! :D

Thanks! :) Yeah, shit is hard yo. LOL. But you're right, the only way to get better is to practice. I'm trying to work on different angles, perspectives, etc. It gets boring to do the same poses over and over again. Backgrounds are really the hardest part for me though, but I'm learning ways to do that quickly, rather than spending hours and hours on it.

This looks great, with the angle looking down on Wheeler and the background. :)

Finally have a moment to comment :D This is really awesome dude! Go you for going all out with backgrounds and stuff!! I'm gonna have to step up my game haha. I like the pier detail, which still matches the cartoony style. And awesome cool beamy action! If he wasn't calling Cap it'd be all fireballs and ... other firey stuff anyway.

Lol Wheeler is such a dork. My humour isn't as bad as his, though I totally have my moments (oh you should see the puntastic commentary I had going. I laughed myself silly and Matthew left the room). He could have changed it up a bit more though. The ol' 'team beam' got a bit old after a couple of seasons of it lol.

Anyway, I'm rambling because I'm braindead, but dude, love it!

Thanks dude!

I like how the pier came out too, it's hard doing backgrounds for cartoon stuff, cause you want it to look realistic, but not too realistic, you know? It's hard to find that balance. I think that wood tutorial is great though, it only takes like maybe 10 minutes to do, so you should give it a shot. It's all done with filters and layer effects, so it's pretty simple, but it helped me get a better understanding of how all that works.

And yes, Wheeler is a total dork. That "team beam" thing did get old. I can totally picture Linka being all like "I swear to God if he says team beam one more time..." *evil glare* Hahaha

haha she totally would.

I will have to give it a go! Work is killing me right now, and it looks like it's going to drag on until next week because of the stuff I was telling you about yesterday (dude, I didn't leave until 7pm). But, I will endeavour to give it a shot! And I know what you mean about the background thing. Too realistic and it looks out of place; not realistic enough and it just looks stupid. I think you found the balance :D
