Hello Raul...Good luck!


09 September 2005, 05:13 PM (

This is my first time in this contest.

My ideia of Spectacular is in this image. I realy think that "The Spectacular" Is the human force, Break the limities of the body.

A day I meet a community of artists that no have arms or arm and foot. They make very beautifull paintins using the mouth and the foot.

This art people is my inspiration to this contest.

I make any studies of composition in this image. I will show in next post.

09 September 2005, 05:36 PM (

this is my best study of a composition in the image concept.

First I use the Golden Rectangle Metric to create my main character. Is a measure that Leonardo Da Vinci and the oldest greek using to create beautifull peaces.

Before I use more two concepts of my composition:
1) The line actions. Imagination lines that show to the beholder what is to for what. My character is to the painting as well as the painting is to hin. And The scenary is to my character - becouse I turn then to the hin.

2) I use the Gold Star metric to compose my scene. In the five points of this scene I put a scenery.
In the locate 1 I put a flag. "The man and you flag" - This flag is a Brazilian flag, that meaning "freedon even so after". in locate 2 I put the paint - the live - a rose. In 3 put a paint foot. In 4 a religious symbols - This people is very religious and taken you strong in that. And in the locate 5 I put a computer.

09 September 2005, 05:39 PM
Very Unique Concept, cannot wait to see more.

a test about the texture of the character

12 December 2005, 12:38 PM
Hey Raul! This image is very good! I really like the fabrics, specially in the altar (it's the same in english, or may be Lord's table). The gouache is very good!

The only thing I would improve is the ink on the canvas (where you paint, I guess that's the word). It's looking like coloured water. Maybe you could thicken a little bit. Make it more pasty. That's my opinion! :D

Keep up the good work!


12 December 2005, 07:01 PM (

This is thje texture of the computer.
I forget to got. :)

12 December 2005, 07:05 PM (

I rendered object by object, and then i put in layers in the photoshop.

I used a fake ilumination in these objects.

AND used one sky light to make one gray render to put above of the layers in the composition.

12 December 2005, 07:08 PM (

this is the illumination settings about my scene.

I use the same illumination paramiter to illumination any one of the objects in the scene.

12 December 2005, 07:12 PM (

this is the frankeinstain texture :)

I take any pictures of my parents and use an any parts of the caracter.

I spent one day to open de UVW map of this character. Was very hard to me, but i like of the result.

I creadt 38 planar materials ID and modelling the UVW.

12 December 2005, 07:15 PM (

I love modelling!

12 December 2005, 07:24 PM (

Ok, I know more photoshop than 3d.
And then I think first in the compose and after in the 3d.

since I renderer this objects alone, i composed in layers in the photoshop.

since I dont know much about 3d illumination I think "I will make a gray sky light render above this layer in a multiplier layer and then i will get great global shadows"

But this made a dark image. Then i first correct the levels of the image and after that i drawn any colors efects and light efects.

12 December 2005, 07:29 PM (

Now I will UP 2 final concepts to remember what i wanted when i started this project and will make comparisons between then.

Foot Paint

What Is Spectacular? Sometimes just saying "Yes" can be Spectacular. Sometimes we forget that simple things like touching the hand of your brother is a spectacular thing and a picture that have a little touch is very spectacular.

But in the world there exist many people that don't have hands, or foots, but they have a spectacular sense of life.

I had a teacher of arts that had no hand. And I learned much about arts with him.

If I had contact with him now, I would probably take this picture from him, in his atelier while he's drawning spectacular things. Even more spectacular than his paints would be this photo, showing the man, his art, and his life.

12 December 2005, 01:25 AM
An original and curious image!:thumbsup: I saw people without arms that are able to paint awesome pieces. Good luck to you!!:)

12 December 2005, 03:22 AM
