It’s my debut here
After months of of reading and learning blender I finally made something that is not build with tutorial, is not 5 hour work to academy and which I can show without shame.
I made this picture for www.cgarena.com challenge - Nightmare. that’s why image is “not so funny”.
Well… it shows sad story, but it had to show a nightmare.
There are some details (for example: of anatomy), that could be corected, but deadline came and I’d like to proceed to another project. This picture helped me to improve my skills a lot.
This image moves me to great sadness as a parent. They say that evoking emotion is the mark of good artwork. By that measure, I guess you have succeeded. On the other hand, I can barely stand to gaze upon it.
Wow… stunning… This evokes great emotion. The lips part of the child gives me the willies. Very well done. I really like the idea of the shadows for the parents, didn’t notice that until I looked a bit more.
Concept for this image came to me very quickly, after I read about “nightmare” challenge. I decided to make it this way to avoid boring monster-with-glowing-eyes-over-the-kid-bed-and-the-kid-is-very-scared scene. In first place I focused on impotence (in meaning of powerlessness), which is very often important part of nightmares (and that’s why boy has his mouth stitched). Making a story about so serious problem was not calculated to get good comments like - “your image is great because it’s about so important things”.
I wanted to look on the challenge subject in a different way. After ideas came to me I decided that this story about boy and his family will be good as challenge entry, but also will give me opportunity to show something that’s important and it’s not allways a subject of 3D art. I know that this picture can even hurt someones feelings. I don’t want to teach anyone, but if someone will think for a while about this story it will be supplementary success of mine.
I’m not a funny-guy type. I like sad stories, but to make my debut with this image makes me feel a little bit uncomfortable.
I learned a lot while doing this picture, and I’m completely in love with 3d art and blender and I have loads of ideas. I like when picture tells a story, but I hope that my next submission will be more optimistic.
I think this is a great start because it’s not optimistic. It is what seperates it from many other works done here, even from the other monster and nightmare works because it has a strong message (as the others said before). Sadly our world isn’t always nice and clear with perfect sundowns and people often feel unconfortable when they are confronted with that fact so I think that you must be a quite confident person who’s not afraid of posting such a provocating artwork.
