Astonishing artwork from around the Spiral

Since the release of Wizard101 in 2008 and Pirate101 in 2012, concept art, fan art, and much more have become a huge thing in the community. Artists such as Dave Greco, AluraRB, Swordroll and Frostcaller have shown through with their various forms of art; entertaining and inspiring us all. I've always been a fan of concept art yet I always felt like the images could be enhanced. I took a Digital Photography course this year and learned how to use Photoshop and it opened my eyes to many new possibilities. Mouse in hand, I started working on retouches of images. Enhancing them, making them more "popping" to the eye. Sorry it has been so long since I've posted guys. I've been very busy with school and haven't gotten the chance to finish lengthy posts yet so shorter yet intriguing posts such as this will appear here and there. All artwork bellow does not belong to me. For every image in this post, I have taken the original image and enhanced it to make it more vibrant so I hope you guys enjoy!

Starting off, here's an original concept for the Elephant Graveyard entrance by Dave Greco. It is a beautiful piece of art yet I wanted to see what I could do with it.

  1. I don't get it, you just upped the contrast...

    1. Not exactly. I messed around with burning and dodging certain parts, along with making certain places more vibrant and changing the hue/saturation and color contrast to make certain colors pop and be more enhanced. I never said it was anything fancy, just some touching up to make it look nicer.
