If it`s not too late,I`d like to share.

Concept:When the phoenix was born

"Chinese lantern plant" has small red berries enclosed in inflated papery orange-red seed cases.

From autumn to winter, seed cases turn pale and begin to wither. and it seems like net tights,however, berries themselves keep red and it make feel mysterious vitality.

I imagine when the phoenix was born(not revive from ashes).Here is phoenix egg.

Nice!
I also prefer the aged one but we have some old portuguese pots and although the shine is duller, the blues are like new. The enamel has these littles cracks in it though (like an old painting)

I made phoenix baby with silo.First I tried to deform within EI,but couldn`t get shape what I want. After all I completed it with silo.

Hi, Tim. I`m glad you like it.And thanks for teaching me red sphere`s name.I didn`t know what it calls in English :D

Hi, yoshiki
Your concept looks pretty nice and elegant. The old pot with some finer cracks will be beautiful... You did it in Modo? is very well done!. And the baby fenix is turning very nice, but -i think the embryonic sack needs to be more organic, not a perfect sphere, and with some irregular bumps on it, like a sort of membrane (you say is like an small red berrie).
Your image will be :applause: :applause:

Wow, Yoshiki, those are some very nice modeling and texturing. Glad you are doing so well with Silo. I've been trying to do some of my models in the program but am getting lots of crashes (partial subdivision is crashing everytime).

I agree that the embryonic sack should have a more organic shape to it, maybe with a sense of weight/gravity pulling the bottom of the sack out more than the top. The baby bird is Sweet! :applause:

I also agree that the older/aged pottery looks nicer. With mini cracks, it will be perfect. Keep it up!

Hi,Felix and Hi,Troy. Thanks for comments and useful advice.
I totally agree with you.Especially "aging" is one of my mainly concern.Now I am studying how to age naturally . I hope you like my final work.

Fortunately or unfortunately Silo`s Partial Subdivision IS NOT effective under my G5.Not crash but never "partial",Subdivide whole thing:twisted: Instead " Refine Control Mesh then Redo" crashes 99% :sad: But totally Silo is simple and fun to use.

On the other hand Modo has particular manner ,so It seems to take time to get accustomed to.But no doubt it has great potential. modo`s interective tool is so attractive to me

There's a tranquility about the image, yet at the same time I feel as if I am looking at a volcano about to awaken.

I love the whole looks and ambience, Uwe nailed it it's very natural but yet it raises an eyebrow :)

I really love your image Zak. Please pardon this little critic:

A: This light on the stem is very good. I like it.
B: I think this light is out of place, it's fighting the shadow behind the pot.
C: You made the wall and the pot darker. OK but I liked it better before.

Thank you Uwe,thank you Ian.This is almost final,but still keep on working.

Thank you Richard. Critics are very welcome. Thanks A.I also like it. And, yes,B is my headache.I`ll try several lighting situation. And C, hmmmm,it is difficult to say yes.Because I want to darken it than now. But if contrast is too strong, it is not good for this image,I know.Another headache:p
