When I first drew this picture(left) a few years ago it looked fine, things were dark but light enough to see what was happening. Since then I got a new laptop, and a second monitor to work on. I found out that what an image looked like on my laptop was completely different to what this old monitor showed. So I adjusted my colour settings to be as close as possible to real life. But now this drawing is hardly visible to me so I fixed it up to be closer to what it looked like on my old laptop(right)
The problem is....how do I know what other people see? What if the person looking at it is using a screen like my old laptop's or my second monitor's? Do I want to tailor my work to look good on the slightly blue screens of laptops or on computers? What do I need it to be like for most people to see it as a nice image? that's not to vivid or dark or what ever?
I guess everyone has this problem, so what's your way of getting around it?
