My personal version of the Guf, however these souls are not that friendly.

am not an expert....but the picture looks gr8 overall....gud lighting... DOF and fog cud be bettered..cuz the characters look like dwarfs against the rest of the scene...
Textures r gr8 I more thing..the scene seems to end in a wall(in the direction which the characters r looking)...looks blocked if u cant see whats beyond the pillars(maybe the camera angle)...but for the name Spirit 'world' one wud expect the scene to show the world cotinuing in a labrynthine form or something...getting obscured with distance...temple seems like a more appropriate name...but thats just a feeling..nothing more...
Really wonderful work....keep it up...:thumbsup:

Good atmosphere and textures are fine. Maybe you could refine modelization though. Columns are a bit too smoothed and need some ornaments and cracks or whatever you want. It's just a suggestion.
A last thing : there a huge black hole in your picture due to insufficient lightning. I don't know if it's my monitor, but I think it would be better if it were not so dark under the bridge.
Great job anyway.

WOW,great concept...this image looks cool man!:applause:, the light from the top looks so misterious and thats exellent! crits...

Wow!! this is incredible! The lighting, mood and the environment just perfect!

08 August 2004, 03:00 AM
wow...thats one great shot. :thumbsup:

just a few comments though. judging by the number of people in the shot im guessin its supposed to be some kind of archaeological find (ruin)? if that is the case i would sugeest a couple of big cracks in some of the pillars. just to make it look a bit older.

I love it..great render

Nice render, nice still image, i'm maby not a professional but this thing is very interesting, there are some dinamics in the picture and some efect like it is taken in motion witch givesit some interesting look.Maby the only thing you should fix is to add some realistic details, like little cracks in the walls, and maby but i,m not sure to giv some light just a nice gentle lightening under the bridge, so the picture would not look so dark.Afeter all i must say that it is a nice work.Good luck.
Maby you should consider about the machineflesh challenge

Really good! You've managed to capture both the mood and the scale of a large structure - good job!

Wow I had to stop in and check this one out. Very nice mood , you really captured something huge. I am inspired to do something other than characters right now....hope it lasts.
Anyways keep up the superb work.

Can't believe I haven't commented on this one yet. Rochr is one of my favorite artists, not only because he makes some excellent artwork, but because he actually uses Bryce. I like that :)

Here you are!

Shafts of volumetric light, the usual fantastic sense of scale, the awe of a new discover. What more? Really glad they recognized your work with a well deserved award.
