Flower on City Scape


This is technically my 4th entry, not counting the tweaks to some others for the NVArt Competition. I didn't think I'd be able to submit this one, but then the extension for submission was put on here! Anyway, I modeled the flower and grass blades in XSI, textured, lit, and rendered there also. Composition done in After Effects. Let me know if you like it. Thanks.

Thanks for the comment; I'm glad you like it. I loved this competition; I learned a lot, and enjoyed it thoroughly! I feel honored to be in the same competition as are so many beautiful and complex images!

be careful not to hurt peoples feelings.


TC - going back to what you said about learning, take this word as a piece of advice. i am sure you have seen flowers before right? the flower you made will envy the flowers from holland. when you model something try to trace the original as a reference that way you will capture the exact essence of what you are modeling. for example if you model the actress kate bosworth or kate beckingsale the best way to approach that is to get a photograph of either one of them, so that you can compare your progress with the reference. and flowers and people are categorically under the classification of the so called "organic" and therefore it will be very smooth, curvy and less corners in terms of form and shape. this is exact opposite of inorganic; things like stones, metals, elements and non-living materials and etc. to model organic things be sure to use subdivision surfaces or nurbs. there are exceptions though, some industrial designs these days have organic shapes even with modern architecture, household appliances etc.

Pineman: I thank you for your comment and interest in my image. I did not use a reference, as you assumed, and I know that a real flower may have less edges and "corners" as you said. I was trying to go for something a little different here though. I appreciate your advice, b/c it is good advice, and I am learning every day! Thanks again for the reply.

Jttruong85: I appreciate it very much! I was hoping it would stand out!

DesignerGr: Thanks a lot for the encouragement!
