Hey I really like it, it looks like a magical place. Only a couple of crits.

The lamp casting the yellow glow has no glow under it - kinda wierd to have an omni light like a lamp not cast any light downwards.

Also the doorway is lit up very brightly but I can't figure where the light is coming from, it can't be coming from the lamp (wrong side of the door) and can't be coming from inside the house 'cause its all dark???

very nice :thumbsup:

i really dig the atmosphere.

can u give some details about the post-process made in photoshop and AE ? i'm very interested by the "2D" touch u gave to the final image, can u tell us more about the filters/operations u applied to achieve the final result ?

velk:

there is no light under the lamp because the lamps' base is casting a shadow - the door is lit by a light on the inside, you can see that the one visible window is lit - sometimes a light isn't strong enough to light up an entire room and besides, it works compositionally to draw our eye in - things don't always have to make perfect sense to work well

this is beautiful work!!

With the exception of the above mentioned crits, this is a really good job, and you have done a real good job keeping the end product true to the concept. Congrats.

This is a truly wonderful piece of work.

Looks and feels magical without becoming the hackneyed cliche that fantasy illustration so often becomes.

I have to say that I also don't entirely agree with the criticisms so far voiced in this context (although technically valid to some extent I don't think they are really applicable when taking into account the style and composition and the fact it isn't about photo-realism). This is, however, just an opinion.

This should be plugged, if it hasn't been already, on the front page.

Fantastic - a real inspiration.

--

P.S. I too would be interested in what was involved with compositing.

Damn...at first glance I thought this was just a drawing. I love the look you were able to achieve. Are you able to pop an animated cam in this scene?

glintx & glintz
06-18-2003, 04:44 AM
ok,guys ,thankyou for your utterance all. :)

we did this pic in order to give voice to a nonphotoreal like .

we just want to incarnate a sense like drawing ,like magic ,or like fantasy world .. anyway ,:)

this is a fungus world , fungus living in forest ,living as room ,and them even living on the moon !! but , we rotate the moon for a little so in the pic , you can't see the fungus on it .hahaha .but in the sketching we make it .just a little scratchy :P

the floor is very wet biside the water .it like .like ..a swamp ..so you can see somuch smoke and fog in the air .

Used Darktree eh? The newest release? Judging by your render, it works pretty darn well. Do you recommend it? I've though about checkin them out in the past. Seen some great materials created by it.

Nice work.

Wow that is amazing. I really like the lighting! It really has an awesome feel to it. Sorry you lost your harddisk though :(. With talent like that though, you should try to recreate it!

The only crit I would have is that the little carvern under the house, I think there should be just a little more contrast so it stands out just a little bit more. I didn't even notice it untill I saw the shaded renders.

we use the max particle system to build the smoke or fog like atmosphere effect .. includ the smoke arround the room and the fog and starlike ...and .even the stars in the nightsky . we build it by particle cloud.

and the texture to the particle system are very important. we used the noise texture and a textures plugins named TEXTURE.LAB.ELEMENTAL.TOOLS to make the smokelike textures.

I am very sad to hear that you lost all your files :(( - i am sure that you were indeed sad a long time - i have lost works of my own, i am sure that everyone has at one time or another

you can console yourself that, in a sense, your work is not all lost - you poured your heart and soul into this work and the universe gives back what you put into it - i truly believe this - you will go on to create more marvels and yet this one, the one you believe is lost to you, its memory will never leave you and will enrich everything you do

i wish you the very best

(i can't resist)
you're such a couple of fun guys
