Sphere Sculpture , Bob Estrin (3D)

Title: Sphere Sculpture
Name: Bob Estrin
Country: U.s.a
Software: Cinema 4d R8,2

I have never posted work on these forums but this new system sounded so good that I decided theres no time like the present.

I created this image a while ago for fun. I recently have been going through old projects and rendering hires and matting them with intention of making prints either posters for myself (or whoever wants them) The image itself is a straight render from Cinema 4d it rendered at 4000x3000 in about 4 hours on my celeron 1ghz 256ram machine. The main light source is a hdri image (the kitchen probe as you may have deduced) mainly because i wanted a realistic lighting in a generic unrealistic scene portraying something unfamiliar. There are a few lights to set of certain areas and highlights but most of the light is radiated from the hdri image. I left it on a plane to kep the scene simple. The modeling is pretty siple boolean operations spheres nurbs for wires. This was intended for a series there are 2 other color schemes but this is the main one red black green white. There are a few reasons i picked the scheme mostly because red green compliment white black are also very stricking and both red black and green black look quite nice. There are a few other metaphors as for the color. Any coments and or crits would be apreciated. Ideas about its aptitude for print and on the general idea would be particularly usefull. Thats about all for now. Im greatly looking forward to you coments and crits and to viewing everyones great work in the new gallery.

good sugestion. But what aspect of the shdows. the blotchieness? Thats because of low settings for the gi and radiosity. Ill pump them up and render this baby when my new computer comes. Didnt realy bother me but its a good point. Thanks for the crits.
