View Full Version : The Tangerine Garden

03 March 2009, 01:03 PM
('s my submission - The Tangerine Garden.
(the original is 1600 by 2560 in portrait... - see a half res version just below)

Allthough it's mainly 3D, I tried to go for a kind of illustrated look - such as the particular forms of the rocks, placement and texturing of objects, a sort of painted lighting.
I tried to sneak in a lot of Yerka's recurring elements, a private wave, the puffy grass, the spiral braching stream, citrus trees, flying fish and then some.

Thanks to this competition for introducing Jacek Yerka to me - it is a most inspiring artist.

This work is about 3 weeks of 3D / compositing in Softimage - 1 day of Photoshop paintovers.
