I really like the concept here, pretty crazy stuff <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />
The shader on tap is great, but the tangly things underneath are overlapping which is somewhat annoying compared to the rest of the image <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />
The lighting is very nice but the over burned spot on the ground near the "head cup" looks somewhat bad compared to the somewhat toned rest of the render.
Also adding caustics would be a very nice touch to add to realism of the image.
Ovearall great job and congrats on DD its well deserved <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />
(and that 100 word limit is a bit too high imho <img src="e.deviantart.com/emoticons/let…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)" /> )

Thanks... The reason the root things on the faucet overlap is because I used the Ivy Generator plugin for Max to "grow" them. Unfortunately, the individual vines don't detect other vines when they're growing, so they all go right through each other. I was kind of annoyed by it too, but it still beats spending a brutal amount of time modeling them all by hand. :)

Thanks for taking the time to write this up. :thumbsup:

That mug reminded me of something but I couldn't think of it until it finally dawned on me. :)

Um, I saw this on [link] Just thought you might want to know in case they don't have permission...
Skokie's avatar
Thanks a lot for the heads-up. They don't have permission, but it links back to this page, and they're not claiming it as their own, so I don't have a problem with it. It's just more exposure for me. What really bugs me is when I see people posting my art as if it's their own. :rage:

I really appreciate the notice though. :thumbsup:

Absolutely fascinating! And surreal, of course. But all thoughtful. Well, I can't say the same for that mug up there.
