Very Nice

Are you using the subsurface shader or just using transparency channel for opaqueness. also your render is it straight or PhotoShop. If straight render can do a print scene of or light setup.

Hey thanks for your comments,

some of the images are straight renders:
geoshape 06, 13
the others have had a little hue an saturation treatement

for the lights a have used only area lights
and the shadows are depth map with high filter size

the brushes are created from scratch

Very beautifull! Just one question: Do you get this arelight kind of shadows from shadow maps? If yes, then how. What I always did is I created an array of spotlight with shadowmaps that gave this soft shadow look. It is hard to tell the nature of your shadows on those particular images.

very aesthetic!
Would make beautyfull art-prints.

One critique, though.
The rounded shapes need more subdivision, so that the polys don´t show.

Nice work!

Très beau.

Very beautiful and special. You should sell them as fine prints at just like other artists does.

Excellent work, very elegant, love the blues.... there's not much to crit since they're all so beautifully stylized

Good work!

I't nice to see so many people looking at my site!
my site even broke because of so much traffic.

I put up a mirror wich will last only 1 Gigabyte in traffic.
I hope the normal site will be back online soon

I really like your art, It has a very good hint of mood in it, which is what I always look for in good art. Keep it up!

Thanks for all the comments, although it's been a long time since I posted here, I see that a lot of people have seen it, so thanks for looking, and I will try to make more work soon,
I just finished school and have more free time now to make more personal work :D

Wow, I also usually don't like abstract art, but this stuff is very nice! Did you use Mray to render it? And how did you achieve the translucence/SSS effect (seen on just about all of them)?

12-28-2003, 02:53 AM
The translucency was made as a post proces, two layers one blur than composite together, the source image ( render) was actualy back and white,
I'm looking to use a sss style plugin in the future. but the problem with it is render time, real sss takes so much time to render that I have not used it yet...
