Original: Goldfish Pirates by Risachantag Original: Goldfish Pirates by Risachantag
More randomness. I believe my thoughts went something along the lines of "Flying whales are neat. Flying mecha whales are even neater. Though a flying mecha whale on its own is a little dull. Clearly there needs to be mecha goldfishes too."

I did the sketch, then decided that the goldfish would be really fun to model in 3D (I've been doing a few 3D projects lately, for practice). It took a full day to model and texture, but hey, it was fun and I learned a lot in the process.

The whale and riders were painted, and the goldfish needed a fair amount of painting-over to make them fit the environment.


Time: 3D - 7 hours
Painting - 5 hours
Tools: Maya, Photoshop CS3, Wacom Intuos Tablet

I had a dream last night. I was in a place that looked like skyrim and I started collecting things and put them all in a crappy wagon because I couldn't carry it all, then I saw a giant wooden blue whale flying over me. I was dumb founded and amazing. I could hear it was made of wood and it drifted/swam overhead, And I thought to myself "my self goal in to steal that ship!! I was able to see it twice before I woke up. It made me want to cry it was so beautiful. :tears:

I gotta say, yer creativity deeply amuses me. Don't really see much people come up with such magnificently farfetched things like this anymore. In fact, I think I'm gonna fave it now.

Wow. This is both bad-ass and hilarious! Truly original, I've never seen a flying mecha whale before. This absolutely tickles the imagination!

I like how you modelled the goldfish in 3D and then painted over it, I should really try doing that! Absolutely gorgeous picture! If I had money, I would love to buy this print. It's the perfect medley of childhood dreams and space pirate adventure!

Way cool!! It kinda reminds me of that movie "Treasure Planet"...don't know why. ^^; The Goldfish Gliders (yeah, I made that up) are amazing and very believable. And the Wailing Whale (yes, again. It's wailing 'cause it's on fire) looks awesome! You're a great artist!
