Hello. Just getting over the flu.
Firstly apologies for not getting back to the comments section yet.
Thankyou to everyone who commented.
Secondly" apologies for not getting to your blogs - yet.
Been taking those wonderfull cold and flu t ablets that send you off the planet. :)
You want to know what Mars looks like from close? I can tell you.....!
But seriously in Oz we call it "sickasadog." I think I have been hallucinating for two days - and when I woke up this morn' these images were on my hard-drive.
So what's this about? Hmm.
Did you know there is a style of architecture called Storybook Architecture?
No, either did I. But whoever has been on my machine for the last two days has been looking it up.
About the images above this text - the top image is rendered at 30 cm by something at 360 DPi and ended up being 1.8 gigs after all the layering. The boy is composited in.
The third image is made by playing with the threshold filter.
The images are alll basically experiments in style.
The last three images are the bare 3d renders without post processing showing the overview of the model -which is made from several commercial models I ransacked and distorted to my own evil desires.
There's and old well and a celtic cross that I need to take advantage of------ the devil on my left shoulder tells me it could be an uncomfortable experience.
And the boy? (see below this text) He could be any of five Jacks* - or one Hansell.
One thing is for sure - he is "uptonogood." Those rabbits should watch out.
And the witch who owns the house - that could be Fuamnach?
thankyou again for your time
be back again tommorow
PS: have you seen Denise Scaramai's work? Stylisticaly very interesting and worth a look. 500 plus followers can't be wrong :)
