Yep...there's internet up here

Hey there! This was my submission to a recent Weekend Challenge themed “The Internet”.

The idea behind the image is to contemplate how far the internet has come in the past few years. Nowadays one can find internet access almost anywhere on the planet…even up here (wherever here is) these little dudes have laptops and are facebooking and twittering with each other. :smiley:

I really like the image and the style! What’s the font of ‘Yep…there’s internet up here’ ?

Very nice! I love the feel of this image! And the cartoon feeling it gives is perfect! Very nice work!

Thats really cool, i like it!!!

looks nice, but I’m missing some shadows between the dolls and the little planets/clouds, it looks weird without it… (looks like the dolls are just pasted on there in photoshop, no interaction)

GlaDOS: Thank you for the kind words :slight_smile: As for the text, the font is my own creation. The letters are simply box modeled in 3D :wink:

Dudebot13: Glad you like it :smiley:

DDD: Thanks!

Biglines: As much as I appreciate your own and others’ kind words about the image, I appreciate criticism even more :slight_smile: Shadows! Of course! (face palm) I totally forgot about that…thanks for the reminder!

Happy blending all :smiley:

Hmm, i dunno, i think it is fine without the shadows, they might actually look kinda weird. I dunno, try it out though, i might be wrong

DDD: I think in this case some really soft shadows (or even AO) would be sufficient. But I am busy with other projects so I am calling this finished :wink:
