(http://assets.cgsociety.org/nvart/358118_1235844586/1024bound)Sherbet began as a sketch that I later rendered in 3DS Max in portrait and landscape form. The image was then imported into Photoshop and Painter where I finished and touched up the image.

I really enjoyed this contest; it forced me to step up my game and try to create work similar to Jacek Yerka’s. I was motivated by the fact that this great artist is a tactile artisan who works brilliantly with any medium. When I saw his pastel work, I was completely blown away by his attention to detail and dedication to upholding his one of a kind style. It was extremely helpful for me to visit his site to get an understanding of how he creates his whimsical creations; and I learned that his toughest critique come from his family, which is so true. I tried to incorporate some of these attributes into my painting. I was inspired by Yerka’s: “The Walking Lesson,” “Tangerine Dream,” “Two snails,” and “The Express Package,” hell, I was inspired by them all. His work has forced me to take a second look at landscape and still life work. I’ve always been a fan of surreal art and I will definitely be doing more landscape and still life studies in the near future.

I wanted to add a more detailed shot, because the formatting didn't allow me to present the work in it's orginal 1600x2560 format. http://i634.photobucket.com/albums/uu63/macco2009/sherbet.jpg

I'm glad you touched up your original post. I'm a little confused about the city that is dangling over the water. What I really like is the unfinished feel from clouds to water tucked in at the bottom.

Thanks a lot. I wanted to show that the city was falling from the sky and dangling by a thread over the water below it.
