Thread: the deep blue

  1. #1

    the deep blue

    Had this head model knocking around for a while and wanted to get a picture out of it.

    I was after a sort of painted feel and lots of bright graphical touches.

    all rendered in blender internal in a few passes, then composited in photoshop.





    cheers

    Everything is great, but the head has such a nice style.

    The style is trippy like always, and the idea is executed in a great way like always too. Good work.

    I love it, stunning work (as usual).
    My only critic (but beware, it's a very stupid critic ) is that the title of the image doesn't fit that much with the colors (there is almost nothing "deep blue", gh!).

    I'm pretty happy with the colours and textures I have here so hopefully can develop this further for new illustrations

    Quite possibly perfect. Certainly your best to date Poke, i cant find anything to critique except for those funny specular white bits around the nose and mouth.

    Woah, I could have sworn it's a pastel painting!

    Colors transition is smooth, the modeling is very natural and even has grain...

    Great render!

    I dig the painterly feel to it. I like how you've used such a range of hues, but still retain some kind of unity.

    the lips look odd to me, is the character supposed to have them pressed against the helmet ?

    it hardly matters though with how beautiful the composition is, really a very unique and evocative image.

    Interesting how the wires and lack of arms seems to draw a parallel with the invertebrates. Plus the apparent lack of thought apparent in all the organisms in the image.

    nice use of subliminals; is it the colors, or is it the actual content of the image that brings the unity/harmony?
    I also like the painted feeling and how it complements the image.
    superb!

    Stunning. And a well-deserved banner. Work of this caliber is a credit to the Blender community.

    Thank you!!!

    Absolutely brilliant. The colours, the composition, all of it.
    Great work!
