Thanks. I really hate the buildings and mountain but decided to post all my 3D as I learn to show others that we all need to start from the beginning and it takes time to develop and get good. I haven't even scratched the surface but I will keep at it.
Yes, it really is. Requires more planning and patience than fractal art. I have sooooo much to learn. I decided to let it all hang out and post stuff as I went, hopefully to show others that we are not good from the start, it takes a lot of time and effort to be good at anything. So go for it!
I know what you are saying Tom...the building on the island lacked the detail we are use to seeing in your work(i hope that didn't sound too harsh ). It just needed something unique to make it stand out. The water and sky WERE perfection though so I foresee future great works!
This program you are using is new to you, right? If this is what you can do with this new program so far , then I can't wait to see what you do with it in a month!!!
i'll be eagerly awaiting all new deviations...
you know..i really hated that i said something about your building...grrr! i consider ALL of your work fabulous tom...don't scrap it!!! i want to see it all as you progress! hell..look at some of my earlier stuff...you can see me evolving right before your eyes sometimes!! lol...i've learned soo much in weeks...it's always rough starting a new program...
No, No! PLEEEESE always comment honestly. I REALLY hated some of the first 3D. I know that we can't be good from the start but I hated that I POSTED everything in my gallery. Should have submitted it in "scraps" initially. I need to take the next step and create my own shapes. It is always good to get suggestions/feedback such as yours. Don't be sorry. Really.
I am really enjoying watching your progress with Bryce, Tom! (your so getting a feel of it faster than me hahahaha) Things can only get better as you continue working with it and exploring with it. I love this sci fi piece. Its wonderfully thought out and creative. Very unique. I especially like the water. Great reflections, movement, weight, feel. Looking good my friend, looking good. Keep it up, I cant wait to see more!
Plusses: The island looks pretty cool, the square buildings look okay with that texture, the sphere construction thing looks neat. And I like your use of non-standard skies. This particular one strikes me as very moody.
Minuses: The same texture unfortunately doesn't work as well applied to the sphere, IMO, and your light beam... well, it was a while before I realized that's what it was, I just thought your cloud layer was messed up. (Maybe use the edge softening on that light cone? I assume it's a light set to be a visible object) Also, I would want to zoom in closer and check where those trees are... it looks like the rightmost tree is more or less completely removed from the ground.
Thanks very much for your critique! I think you are right on with all of it. I really hate the buildings and the mountain texture. Just looks too phoney. I really appreciate that you took the time to help.
thats what its all about, learning more. ive had Bryce for a couple months now and havent really even tried to make an actual landscape scene. i will one of these days.....but there's that procrastination thing holding me back haha. lately i havent made much with art. ive been playin with music. hehe.....my other hobby
