Fluid Inspiration, Akira Hanzo (3D)

Title: Fluid Inspiration
Name: Akira Hanzo
Country: Romania
Software: 3ds Max 5

The main idea is that inspiration is like a fluid that floats in the air, a substance that can be smelled, tasted and seen. It is easier than air and might be flowing as water, easily vanishing.

Absolutely amazing work, I love it =D

The only thing I would change is maybe making the texture on/above the cheeks closer match the chin and rest of the face. It looks a little too rough compared to the rest... this might just be me though.

But anyway, great job!!

Stunning. B&W CG always looks better to me. However, must offer the following crits.

The hair looks 3d; The tips show that it is clearly transparency mapped. The ends shouldn't be so straight cut.

I suppose the pores on the face are more defined because it is seen through the water or something else I don't understand, but it looks a bit odd.

Nice stuff!

There are various discrepencies to criticise but overall I find the image aesthetically pleasing. I especially like the liquid and the eyes. The lips appear to lack any kind of depth. Overall: nice.

nice image -- if you change anything, I would suggest toning down the PORES of the skin. I like the freckles - but freckles denote a YOUNG person, and a younger person has much smaller pores ... not as pronounced. Keep up the excellent work bub!

technically very impressive.
I don't really like 3D images like that thought, a photo would do the trick better...

Nice lighting! A beautiful work. I'd like to know how you did the shading on the lips?
Anyway it's well done!

Flippin brilliant!

The mouth looks exceptionally photo-real.
The whole thing looks photo real to me - the only thing that gave it away for me is the eyes being a little too sharp.
I do agree that the pores on her cheeks are a bit strong - it makes her look a lot older.

Excellent work either way!!
