Re: Needs more blue...

In Response To: Re: Needs more blue... (thebruce0)

: The new hue really is because they went with a sunset/dusk environment. The
: blue definitely gives it a colder feel though. *shrug* I could go either
: way.

Where I live, it gets cold as hell. Seriously. A single snowfall will leave centimeters of snow on the ground, and it will stay there for months. The cold just soaks into everything, to the point where trees get permanent frost damage and pipes buried two meters under the ground burst.

And then the clouds clear up, and it gets worse. What little heat you get from the sunshine is gone thirty seconds after the sunset. Gazing into the sky on a night like that, you expect the stars to start winking out one by one, never to return. One begins to wonder if the sun will never return, and if instead the temperature will fall until dewdrops of oxygen condense.

And in all my years of living here, having seen hundreds of frozen sunrises and sunsets with all possible combinations of cloud cover, I have never, ever seen a snowscape tinted brownish-orange like you see in the updated graphics. That tinting only happens during early-summer dust storms.

I think that the blue tint has a much more natural look, especially since there's plenty of whites and grays to balance it out.
