This piece inspired by:
- talks on the beach
one of my all time favourite pieces i've produced.
EDIT: i've been instructed to tell you to full view to appreciate the fine details. this is a habit i am unfamiliar with, but apparently many people don't and are then surprised to find i spent 8 hours brushing the details in this piece. just to let you know, its there if you're interested.
i have also made it available for print. i reckon it would make a sweet mousepad personally.
I'm really intrigued by this piece. I take it you did it in some 3-D rendering program and then added the texture with Photoshop? The texture is by far my favorite part. Of course, that would be of no constitution without the 3-D model which is very intriguing. I don't really know much about 3-D modeling, but this one caught my interest.
I can see why this is a favorite of what you've done. I came to your page just to note you about something and then I saw this and had to comment. It's absolutely breathtaking.
I should probably at some point get a new mousepad.. Ye ol' Dell one is gettin' used. If I don't end up getting this as a mousepad - I'll probably get atleast a little print of this to hang next to me at my desk - it's really refreshing to look at. I don't know why but.. it makes happy.
i really like this one, it has really some originality in it, the dirtyness is well used here and sightly touch of 3d works here very well
very good choice of texture, I don't know if in this kind of piece other texture would be better.
minimal typo in thoose pieces is always the best idea
i have to assume this is digital?
but it has such a trad look and feel to it.
the textures especially. looks like you could have taken a toothbrush and tongue
depressor and did some splattering over top fo some sponge work,...OVER top of
some drybrush detailing.
and the color scheme is tasty as well. very subdued. almost pastel. i guess that
kind of re-enforces the trad look to me. so many digi artists really like to get in your
face with the big colors and the flash,...and i like that too of course. don't get me wrong.
it's just nice to see a new direction from time to time.
sweet work bro.
Nice touch with the textures. Haven't seen something quite this refreshing in the abstract scene for a while. I gotta say I love the way how you still kept it simple, a concept that seems to be quite rare among abstract artists nowadays. They tend to go overboard with details but this is perfect, just the right amount of semi-vibrants colors and details. Loving it.
thanks for the comment mate. i was pleased with how different this turned out too - i ran with the style to see where it would take me. check the depthcore pack out for the rest of my experiments, i'll be uploading them to dA over the next 2 weeks.
I dont understand the dirtyness. And It looks like the brushing has some kind of pattern.( I know there isnt, but it looks like it.)
And I´m personally missing a contrast-colour.
Typo is almost unreadable.why?
The top third of the pic reminds me of the beach, low tide and water coming up just short of your feet.
The middle area reminds me of my stencils I use for my paintings, I make them out of paper, and use them again and again till they're barely paper, they get that same texture.
The bottom third reminds of a nice late afternoon summer sky, exact some colours and because the texture isn't as well defined it comes off looking like clouds.
Very cool piece, not much of a comment, zerocomplex got to all the things I wanted to say first haha, but I love the piece and had to leave a comment, its been sitting as my wallpaper since you put it up. I really enjoy it alot.
