Title: The Fish Market
Name: Petra Stefankova
Country: Slovakia
Software: mental ray, Photoshop, XSI

Still the same surrealist concept as my artworks posted here before (i.e. Somewhere In The Pub...), but I am continuously developing the style to get even better.

Interesting work! style is oryginal for sure! Lot of expresion and emotions feels around here!
Nice work!

10-24-2006, 07:36 AM
Looks great! So many fun little shapes to look at - I like it!

10-24-2006, 08:10 AM
Great work, I like it :thumbsup:

10-24-2006, 10:32 AM
Very original, I like it :thumbsup:

I guess Picasso was your inspiration?


10-24-2006, 11:44 AM
Definately original, and nice to look at. Great work! :thumbsup:

10-24-2006, 01:57 PM
Creative peace of work. Thumbs up! :scream:

10-24-2006, 02:51 PM
wow, cubist (or surrealist as u said) in the digital age!! really great concept and interpretation. guess Picasso would be proud of this.

10-24-2006, 03:50 PM
Nice work, I love the non-photoreal lighting and texture. Excellent piece.

Great work! I'd love to see more people doing illustrative work like this with 3D. Robots and Amazonian battle-babes are nice, but there's so many more possibilities out there. Can't wait to see more of your work.

10-24-2006, 05:39 PM
Very good my friend

10-24-2006, 06:25 PM
Wonderful work ... my five stars

10-24-2006, 10:18 PM
Yep, another 5 stars from me. Pure and beautiful art

10-24-2006, 11:19 PM
The lighting and composition are beatiful and the colour palette really enhances the piece. I would like to know your inspiration, as others here have hinted at Picasso, i'm guessing a touch of Miro too? Well done, 5 stars.

10-24-2006, 11:34 PM
I like your art (whatever it was surrealism,cubism….digitalism) it has obvious concept and clear lines...

You have used the same technique as your old work… simply I like it.

10-25-2006, 01:19 AM
Excellent work! Form, Composition, Lighting are all superb!
Bringing something new to the CG artform. Keep up the excellent work!

10-25-2006, 01:27 AM
a tad naive but nice.
I'd just relax a bit the camera focal to let
the subject blends more in the picture.


10-25-2006, 01:42 AM
Is it only me or you can read "Brad Pitt" subconsciously in the picture?




10-25-2006, 02:25 AM
This is really beautiful. I'd love to see more of this kind of work. Digital fine art that I'd proudly hang on my wall. Have you considered selling prints?

Spectacular! I like very much the decorative qualities and the refined, graphical 3D-imagry.

10-25-2006, 04:44 AM
whats interesting its like I am looking at a mural done on a wall. I like it good job!:bounce:

10-25-2006, 04:49 AM
Great technique I love the use of 3D for make illustrations.

10-25-2006, 05:06 AM
Wow creative work! I like it.:scream:

10-25-2006, 05:30 AM
crazy, there is nothing to crit lol. so i guess you nailed it.

10-25-2006, 06:30 AM
Very interesting work Petra. The mixture of 3d and ilustration you make is very unusual and perfectly got. Congratulations.

10-25-2006, 06:42 AM
Very Stylish .. :thumbsup:

10-25-2006, 06:43 AM
DOPE! I love it. Very unique use of cg!

10-25-2006, 07:43 AM
I like a lot this creation,
Are you influenced by Picasso's art? Your work remembers me the "Guernica".

Hi, from Spain.

10-25-2006, 07:49 AM
Nice use of 3D software to reach a cool cubist/embossed result. I like this way of creation.

10-25-2006, 08:21 AM
hey petra!

i love those "paintings". really cool to see 3d used in a different way.
i actually had one of your previous picts as desktop image for some time.


10-25-2006, 08:22 AM
Congratulations to this great piece of work. A very nice realisation!

10-25-2006, 08:28 AM
Ahoj Petra. Konecne trocha umenia na tejto komercnej stranke :)

10-25-2006, 08:33 AM
Awesome piece of work. I can spent hours looking at it and finding all the beautiful details.
It's superb example of using 3D to create art. Five stars http://forums.cgsociety.org/newreply.php?do=newreply&noquote=1&p=3957119#

Ostatne super, ze je to tady. Ty vymakly priserky jsou taky prima, ale tohle ma styl..

10-25-2006, 10:29 AM
I think Picasso would be very proud of you....
nice shapes & colors...

10-25-2006, 10:31 AM
Love it! Really nice job there.

Now lets see more art in 3d!

10-25-2006, 11:05 AM
personally I find it prett original. gotta love the color palette scheme u used too.^^


10-25-2006, 05:07 PM
Real cool work...does it move? :)

10-25-2006, 08:36 PM
Hi guys,

I appreciate all your comments, votes and everything, it's really exciting to hear even a single word from you, so big thanks to everybody who has stopped by :)

As to answer your questions, here you go:

I learned one most important thing from all those old masters of fine art. It says, that you have to follow your own ways of expressions, howsoever crazy they are. They opened my mind as they did it to "art industry" long time ago, so this is the only influence they made (but it was really essential!), the other things as the style itself, forms and shapes, structure and composition, it's all about myself. Picasso and Miró they followed a different background in theory, but I must admit, that the final execution and aesthetics is very similar. I felt it this way...

As for the animation, yes I am definitely considering to do it, but it's a matter of time, hope I can manage it soon...

Prints - detto, I can produce prints if you wish, so just give me a PM and we can arrange something.

Many thanks again!


10-25-2006, 11:27 PM
i think the "realism" of the surfaces and rendering is a great juxtaposition to the abstract or heavily simplified designs of the characters and such, makes it much more interesting to my eyes than an actual cubist painting. fun, great idea. so may possibilities when you animate it also, it might get really complicated but it could be amazing.

10-25-2006, 11:35 PM
WOW that is sick I love cubisim. You should get some Giclee's of that made and sell em' for a couple hundred a piece. Keep it UP

10-26-2006, 07:15 AM
great work! thankyou

10-26-2006, 11:40 AM
It's really really good!
A new kind of 3d design work!!
so beautiful !like a oil painting work!
I like it!

10-26-2006, 11:59 AM
A mix of cubism and Aztec art.:)

10-26-2006, 11:59 AM
Awesome work! I like it so much, this style just rock! 5stars and congratz to front page:) opäť nádhera

10-26-2006, 09:04 PM
I really like when people make a personal, uncommon use of cg. This is kind of original, which is something difficult to achieve.

I'd like to see this animated also, and even with sound! I think of giant metal pieces moving around, like a clockwork..

grat job, take care!

PS. It doesn't remind me of picasso at all.

10-26-2006, 09:09 PM
refreshingly different always on the look out for something different and this is it...stands out from the crowd...great stuff...keep it up...its a lovely precious in a sea of normality...heh heh.

10-27-2006, 12:34 PM
Great control of the color, well done!

10-28-2006, 06:20 AM
yes nice lines and some kind of lost art..minimalism whit non saturate textures....
anyway LOL where you are art director, graphic designer,and illustrator??lol you practice this in street somewhere in subway london ? :bowdown:

10-28-2006, 12:49 PM
sorry for double posting

10-28-2006, 12:50 PM
oh thanks for so many replies and nice comments :)

hv2: I am a freelancer experienced in all those positions, I market myself as illustrator within international advertising & publishing industry as I think this is my strongest skill, but I have had also many clients who approached me as graphic designer only (especially for print design assignments, CI and such). Moreover I have led animation production (tv commercials, music videos and my animated short films) as I studied animation in Prague (and graphic design in Bratislava). It's just because there has been clients who found me over the animacia.sk website basicaly and upon the portfolio research they decided to leave the production up to me. So that's it.

this is nice artistic piece of work, colors and "blury" look are amazing :thumbsup:

11-09-2006, 06:00 PM
NICE! way to bring cubism to the world of 3D graphics. very well done

11-10-2006, 05:42 AM
Fantastic. This is one of the most creative things I've seen on this site.

11-10-2006, 10:19 PM
as usual :bounce: ...very nice work :thumbsup:

11-10-2006, 11:19 PM
Nice work! here's a bad joke for ya: What did the cubist artist say to the photagrapher? ...................
Nice blocking.

This is so refreshing. Thank you so much.

This should be realized as a real mural, in a real fishmarket, on a real wall, in a real city. (No offence to the virtual Art world;-)

As a student in Detroit we visited the Detroit Farmer's Market on weekends and some enterprising artist had done the most wonderful murals on the walls of the buildings surrounding it. It was such a joy to shop there. This piece took me back there.

So back away from your computer, find some students to help you, find an appropriate wall, and go do it.

Right now.

I'm waiting....


11-14-2006, 02:43 PM
great work!
it doesn´t remind me of picasso either . it reminds me more of klee and xul solar (http://anonima.blogspirit.com/album/xul_solar/chief-of-serpents.3.html)

11-14-2006, 07:45 PM
Funny shapes!
I like this style soooo much!
Nice work!
You inspire me so much!

11-14-2006, 09:30 PM
nice - it looks like Picasso's Guernica

12-16-2006, 01:23 PM
wow, this is really something new!
need more things like that!

01-09-2007, 03:34 PM
All I have to say is "WOW". I absolutely LOVE the colors, the shapes and just the unusualness of this piece, I agree with samIambic...you need to work on getting this as a real mural.

This really inspires me by the way, I thank you for that.

5 stars from me...
