Interesting work. Not sure how you made this, is it particles? By the way, are you the guy that made that series of images in this style on CG-Society? Oh never mind, I just looked at your gallery - you are that guy lol. Seems a lot of the CGS guys are coming over to DA now.
cheers my friend! i really hope to have enough time and resources to pull an animtion out at some point. That was a plan from beginning but since animation is much more complex project I started from still images
Thanks for the comment. I'm working on some pictures, I might be able to post them soon but I can't promise, I do not want to rush things in any way . I'm not sure what you mean by making special textures with this file?
Wonderful! I never thought to use a painting as the texture. I've often made my own textures either by painting in Photoshop or taking photos of my own, however, I've never used my own paintings. Thanks for the heads up. I'll have to try that sometime. In the meantime, I'll keep watch for your newest work.
cool, thanks for a watch About textures, I use everything really, pieces of photos, hand painted stuff, some things turn up nice accidentaly. But in this piece hand painted texture (but painted in Painter) had the most impact on the look. And the way in which you project texture on 3d is very important as well. I'd say it's equally important.
