a box of pearls by hoevelkamp a box of pearls by hoevelkamp
Hi @ all.

My piece for :iconnameless-designer:'s spaceart contest. I'm pretty happy about it. Don't think that I've seen something similar around.

It's part photomanipulation, part Vue and composed and finished in Photoshop.

That's me, brilliant, omniscient, simply put a genius. For five seconds a year. ;) In that five seconds I got the idea for this one. :D Thanks a lot.

It's so unique. The best thing to do is just carry a small pad and pen with you, and when something comes to you, jot it down. Most of my ideas come to me when I am half asleep in bed, so I have a pad on my night stand ^-^

very cool i think the pearls would actually need stronger highlight aka glossines increase. However i like it.

That is a very good idea, dude!

But the black inside the box looks a little "flat"... why don´t u put something more in there, instead of that flat black? I dunno a subtle texture for example... its just that the black screams "photoshop" and doesn´t make justice to the rest of the picture...

Thanks a lot dude. In the full resolution (not available here, only on my PC) the black is not only black. It's filled with small, tiny stars. I first tried it with red velvet, than black velvet. Doesn't work.
