Salvador Dali attempt (Updated 11/20)

Figured I’d take a break from attempting animation and go back to stills.

One of my favorite Dali paintings C&C welcome. Still in progress.

for those who didnt know, here is the origional:

well, i must say that you did a very good job…

the lighting angle seems right, but your edges seem sharper than the painting. you might want to soften the edges, especially on the pillars…

although im not sure how you would do that…

other than that, its great


I prefer yours to dali :stuck_out_tongue:
the sky looks wrong

yes the sky is wrong i just couldnt find a pic that matched the painting. If anyone as any Ideas do tell.

here is an update with some post production in ArcSoft PhotoImpressions4

I dont like it, it doesnt look 3D any more, but just for the hell of it. Again any ideas about the sky would be greatly appreciated

personally, I like the sky. It makes it look more “alternate reality” ish… I think all of salvadore’s paintings are that way…I would work on the texture of the stone. In the original, the stone looks manmade, like bricks, maybe? I like it though!!



Veeeeeeeery good!
Just one tip:

Need darknees.

took up Danielhc suggestion here is an update

Well I believe this is done. Posting in the Finished Projects forum.


Now it’s done

Just imagine if Salvador Dali had the use of Blender…

Anyway, good job HEADCHEESE!!!
