The Birthday Party, Matthew Baldwin (3D)



Title: The Birthday Party
Name: Matthew Baldwin
Country: United States
Software: LightWave 3D, Photoshop

This is the image I sent into this year's Expose. Ultimately, I don't know how successful it is--I've lost the ability to see straight with it. It's a scene I would drag out every few months and tinker with. I guess I was influenced by Harold Pinter's The Birthday Party, and a bit of the mad tea party and the last supper thrown in to boot. I was going for a shallow diorama-like environment. I mean what's not to like about good dioramas? The American Museum of Natural History is one of my favorite places. I was there again today with my family.

Wow! I LOVE this image!

Your lighting setup is fantastic, and this looks like a painting. Very effective and creepy.

Sorry...but I've gotta give this 5 stars.

Fantastic image Matthew! I think you really captured the anticipation and action in this image. I'm glad you submitted it for EXPOSE' consideration.

Best,

Leonard

Very nice, great lighting, and really nice idea. Only thing I don't completly understand is the two small people at the right bottom corner. 5 stars from me, great job.

Man. Give us a poster-like resolution and I'll hang it into my room! Excellent job, extremely nice light setup! I like the warm/cold thingy you did here, looks really great. Awww!
