...or more known as Sakura and Cherry Blossoms!


But why would I spend time to make something so feminine as flowers... and even pink ones?! ¤_¤

The excuse is simple: I was forced to! My AD manager wanted some flowers in the upcoming commercial Im doing. So don't get any bright ideas or think of any other reasons @@

Edit: I've uploaded a visual breakdown in my Scrap gallery. Take a look if you like to see odd stuff. [link]

Edit2: Wow!! I couldn't belive my eyes when I went through my routine surfing today morning! Thanks a lot for the feature DD! :D

Edit3: A lot of asked me kindly if they could use or have a wallpaper version of it. What can I say? Of course :3

I added this to my collection "photography" by accident because I thought it was a picture you took at first, haha. :P
Very nice job, I love cherry blossoms and they look so real~
mogcaiz Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heh, youre not the first one xD Somehow I managed to make it look like something photographis in a once in a life time accident xD But thanks!
SiggyStuff Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
wow. they look so real. but it's kinda sad that you were forced to make it, art kinda means more if it comes from the heart. i guess i could think of it as instead of this being an expression of your soul, it's simply an expression of your talent, which sometimes is good enough :)

Pretty! :D You're really good!
Alska Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010
My dream is to be as good as this. Did this take only 4 mins? Or thats the time it took to load!? O_O
mogcaiz Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, the render time took 4 minutes. Meaning the computer calculated the surfaces of each flower, combined it with lighting and shadow calculations, etc. To present me the pictures I wanted. :) That process took no more than 4 minutes. However my manual work took about a day to do ^^;
Alska Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2010
wow, im so envyious, :O I want to do art like that! All in a days work hmph :P
mogcaiz Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Dedicate an evening with messing around a bit with a few photos or 3D renders and see what you can archive :) That's what I did and this is how it turned out ^^
Alska Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2010
Cool thanks!!

Many many moons after coming across this the first time, and I'm still blown away by its beauty. A real masterpiece in my eyes, great job <3
munaha Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2010
i actually thought this was real until i saw all the comments! :faint: soooooo prettyyyy!!! :P
renasakai Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2009   Digital Artist
I'm absolutely in love with this! I am just an amateur artist and so have the luxury to create only when I feel inspired. But I do feel that when we spend so much time on a piece, the process of creating is as important as the finished work. It's a kind of meditation, and the process leaves an imprint on our inner selves. I can imagine that many hours focused on such beauty would make your soul just a bit more beautiful. If that makes any sense.
