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.
