This is a new direction for me, and no, it's not photography (apart from the figure). I accept that it won't be everyone's cup of tea - however, I'd really appreciate feedback from those who do like this sort of thing.
Looks like Bryce to me I like it.. always a fan of bryce.. i like the two reflective spheres... and the water has a nice delicate tone to it.. very nce work..
Its beautifully crafted, no obvious "cut & paste" marks or jarring discrepancies. I like it a lot and think that the title fits the image. Definitiely my cup of tea. Keep going, who knows where you will end?
Thanks Steve and Brian for your positive comments. It's a shame really, as (a) the size we're limited to on the site means that some of the finer details and reflections are missing, and it also seems to have come up quite a bit darker than it was at home, so the figure in the nearest bubble is almost invisible. Still, I've only been playing with the software for a couple of days and still have loads to learn!
It's best to still think photographically when using software like Bryce. I would have been inclined to have dropped the horizon somewhat and captured less of the water foreground, or placed the camera nearer the water surface and looked up. That said, if you've only been playing with Bryce for a couple of days, this is a direction you should keep pushing in, as it's a good job. Let that imagination really run riot!
Tanya, this is not usually my cup of tea - and I've never heard of Bryce, but this is really impressive. To say you're new to it I think it's excellent - one of the best I've seen on here.
Very Impressive.You certainly have a pretty good grasp of the software to have been able to acheive this lvel of quality.I'm still trying to figure out how to merge two photos.great job.Keith
Now I'm going to look up BRYCE.
Thanks DP, Flossie and Keith for your comments. Bryce is great, and I'm a converted 3D fan now ... if you do have a play with it Keith, enjoy!
Tanya, durlstonp is on to something there. Love the image in the context of what he says. Was a camera actually involved ???
Reminds me of 70s album cover and a japanese airbrush king.
Good one, Tanya - one question; how long did it take you to put it together?!
Jim and Andy, thanks for your kind words.
The only element in the image which is a photo is the figure in the bubble. The rest was created in Bryce 4. In total, I'd say that it took about an hour of playing around with the basic elements, and then 5 hours trying to jiggle and refine the image so that it was somewhere near to what was in my head. Unfortunately, I seem to be spending so much time at the moment learning, that I don't seem to be particularly productive in terms of finished images! Thanks for your encouragement.
I'm a big fan of all sci-fi fantasy art and I admire anyone who can produce it - whether it's done with software or photography or a combination of the two. I've only just got round to looking through your excellent portfolio so I'm a bit late in commenting to say the least but this certainly deserves a click. I'd love to see the full size image.
Nice image, sometimes, I use also Bryce, it's fascinating to play around with 3D objects
Hi Tanya just come across your little corner of EPZ and I must say WOW love the style and this image great stuff lets see more.
Just put this to my favourite, I'd say leave it as it is! I always find if I try to change things after I have finished with it! then it gets ruined because I really had finished with it!.Regards Leon.
It looks like a scene from a sic-fi movie. E.T stuff. Like it.
fabulous work.. an icy coolness.. grit.. determination.. dare.. and yet with supreme coolness..
