Fairy And Snake, Stahlberg (3D), (3D)



Title: Fairy And Snake, Stahlberg (3D)
Name:
Country:
Software: Maya

Anyway this is my entry to Animago 2003 'Still' category, and also I think to this years 3d Festival event, sorry to shove it in your faces again (it started with my 2d version, and then the WIP that's lasted quite a while...) lord knows I'm getting tired of it myself... but it's finally done, and before I submit it I'd just like to have some last feedback - thanks.
(edit: here's a link to the WIP thread if you're interested)

Wow Steven the cleanup is a beaut! I'll update the gallery entry for you. I really like what you did with the contrast, very strong very in your face. I also love the soft skin of the fairy, very well done there Mr. Stahlberg

Cheers

wow.



I loved the 2d sketch of this scene, it was one of my favorite CG art pieces. And now it's in 3d! You sir, are my hero.

I think a small animation is in order...

Duffman said exactly what I was going to say...

I never thought you would have matched the original painting but how wrong could someone be ???

Now I have the dilemma of replacing my fave 2d piece, with the 3d version on my desktop ARGHHH !!!

Great work Steven! It's very true to the original. You did a very good job on the dragon, I think it looks more convincing here than on your painting. I liked the faery better in the painting, but she's still vere beautifull here.

I'm not to fond of the smudging on the hair on the back of her head, and I think the drool comming from the dragons mouth kinda disturbs the flow of the composition.

Good luck with Animago, I'm sure your chances will be very good

Simply amazing. The thing that gets me the most is the fact that you had already made it perfectly sweet in 2D prior to this... You spend quite a lot of money on coffee each week, don't you?

That face is possibly the most beautiful thing I've seen in 3D so far... And I'm talking about the girl now

The only thing that seems a bit off is her hair. The part of it on her shoulder looks, I dunno, somewhat strange... But still, the overall image is several magnitudes greater than most could ever make!

Man... I.... Well.... It's... WOW!

This is very very cool

it's very loyal to the original painting, and it actualy does resamble to a painting.

I just love tge girls face.
just the snake doesn't seem to have expression, but thats ok for me!

plus, I think that if you could add a shine or a light spot to the snake's drool, it would help it out. ou make it thiker and have refraction to it...I don't know...

well, great work again, and... well, keep them comming!

Really great work!

One thing that looks a bit odd, you have this drool but there is very little to suggest moisture in the mouth or on the tongue, maybe some more shorter strands of drool or something.

Anyway still looks great, very true to your 2D.
