Hi there,
Again a little time to practice and have some fun..
I would like to share with all of you a concept from the old books with old magical stories that always amazes me (the Whale and the island on it's back) it is simply interesting to question things like.. are the trees trees or are they a form of growth that helps it camouflage!! The whale is old, it lives for hundreds of years these creatures have always been mistaken to be land, this voyager ship makes a discovery...
I have created the models textures and environment in about 8 to 10 days, I hope to here your comments, please feel free to tell me what you think...
Really hope that you enjoy the work

Thumbs up

A really beautifull image. i like eyerything, the texturing, the modelling, the water... everything fits well together.
But one thing disturbes me. the wale seems to float over the water. there are no refractions of the wale under the water and he is to visible there...
so thats the only thing i can mention, nevertheless great peace of art!

Realy awesome idea, render, lightning wow I got myself a new wallpaper haha... I have to agree with rusaru about the whale being to clear... but mean that is fly poop haha awesome good front page work!

great idea for a render..the whale & island came out very nice..
not to keen on the boat though,I feel it throws the composition off a bit & isn't really needed to show off the scale.

but what a great work!..I'd love to see that animated
