stuff i did earlier today. i was working on my laptop, and i had to transfer the file to another computer that has internet connection. then i realized that the drawing is very very yellow in this computer. i guess, my laptop has a different color setting…

by the way, i’m back in Jakarta. :)

just one question : did you really make the basic schets (of the face) straight into the laptop ? or make the basic schets in the paper, then scanned it, and so on… (traditional way). Cause at this point, gw rada2 gaptek nih… (jujur, one word : mirip) ^_^ -vesuvio-

If you are using a CRT to design, make sure in the settings you set the color temperature to 6500 Kelvin (K). If it’s higher (9200K), the colors will look blue (warmer), if it’s lower (5600K) the colors will look reder (colder). Most good CRTs have this option. Laptops, do not.

Also, make sure the that the brightness is low enough that on a black background, the monitor is not emitting any light, in other words, it should be true black.

This free program will help you get your CRT looking as best as it can:


It is a bit cumbersome to use, but if you draw on a CRT it is especially important that the height and width of the image is geometrically correct (4x3), otherwise your drawings may look longer or wider on an appropriate calibrated monitor.

I like the picture. It does look like you.

hee, thanks mike :) CRT is a pain in the ass on calibration. i thought if i was using LCD, it would be easier. the desktop i was using has those flat screen thingy, so no CRT. but it still has some color difference. wonder why. i guess my dad (who owns the comp) like to tint everything yellow. hehe.
