Very very beautiful and sensitive. It reminds me of the transition from reality to fantasy that happened to me a lot when I was a child - and sometimes now, and it gives me the lovely feeling I got from watching Finding Neverland... the same transitions there again.... I love this piece.

C'est tres beau tout ca, les textures et tout... sauf que ca parait po mal que c'est du trois D... un peu trop parfaitement droit. Tk, tres beau travail, J'aimais bien faire la même chose quand j'était tout tout petit, moins petit, et encore aujourd'hui quand ca me tente... xD (et merde j'ai presque mes 18 ans, j'aurai pu d'excuses pour faire l'enfant >< va falloir j'accepte d'Avoir l'air fou ^^;)

J'adore le mix entre les outils de cabanons et les éléments médievaux.

absolutely incredable. The points to adding the realities (the hoe, box, barral) and the castle that the child sees, really puts the viewers mindset into a childs. We can all remember those days that we say our couches and chairs as forts and castles, and our dinkies as real cars asnd everything imagineable
thanks for the memories
I long needed it :)

Hey this is a brilliant piece of art. I like everything about it. The angle, the art style ,you name it. You done a really good job here. The image quality is top notch. I was wondering what type of plug-ins you are using for those trees, they look so real!. What program did you use to produce this magnificent peace of art? And how long did it take to render, The quality of this peace is very good. Thanks for submitting this wonderful peace of art.

Wow... amazing O.o
I was having almoust identical dream! Aww... coincident? Huh, if someone believes in some spiritual bonds than this should be the first link ^^"
Anyway, I like your works, they are so beautiful. Some fantasy concepts and colors... yeah, I like colors in here - your dream was in color, right? There are ppl who have dreams only in b&w - strange but true, I think ^^"
Umm... and what we have here...? Oh yes, wonderful colors - as usually : )
I'm starin' 2 get used 2 your colors, nice :-)
So... theres only one thing that I could complain - when I first saw this deviation my eyes couldn't focus on anything. I was wondering trough all space in the art and I couldn't find some really good spot. 2 good? Nah, just nothing was more interesting than other things like barrel or leafs. Maybe it's because of this strong light... it seem that sun rays are everywhere, and is that good idea? Huh, I don't know... so I can't really tell...
But... one thing I know. I love this work so it gaines a fav - another one, yay! ^^"
Oh... and I see that somebody else already saw that problem with "eye-wandering" stuff... oh well, I am not some sort of specialist... but thats great job - keep goin'

Very nice work. I would have been really disappointed if the first daily deviant in 3D was just a poser/renderer.
However your work looks truly original. Keep it up.

This is wonderful, absolutely brimming with the merging of imagination and reality that is so frequent in child's play. It looks like one of those fantastical scenes that would come out of one of my favorite children's books, "The Sandman."

I love your work but I'd like to see more variation in the lighting.
In this piece "Child Dream" I can't find a focus, all the elements seem to be equally interesting/detailed/illuminated. If the fantasy is the message, perhaps the rest could be subdued.
It is truly wonderfully rich in detail.
In your other pieces like "Morning in a viking Fortress" and "Chateau Gaillard" it is all so antiseptically clean and uniform I can't find myself there.
"The Great Battle Coming's V1" has nice dramatic light on the figure, but I think the sky is light enough to draw our eyes away.
I know you will be proud of your work, countless people will tell you how good it is (and I agree) but like a musical note almost reached...

J'aime votre travail mais je voudrais voir plus de variation de l'éclairage. Dans "rêve d'enfant" je ne peux pas trouver
un foyer, tous les éléments semble être également interessant/détaillé/illuminé.
Si l'imagination est le message, peut-être le repos pourrait être soumis. C'est vraiment merveilleusement des riches en détail.
Dans vos autres illustrations comme le "matin dans une forteresse viking" et le "Chateau Gaillard" c'est tout tellement antiseptique propre et uniforme que je ne peux
pas trouvaille moi-même là. "la grande bataille prochain V1" a la lumière dramatique sur la figure, mais je pense que le ciel est assez brilliant pour dessiner nos yeux loin.
Je sais que vous serez fier de votre travail, les personnes innombrables vous diront à quel point bon il est (et je conviens) mais comme une note musicale presque atteinte...
