awesome work loth, there is a lot to like about this. Great vivid colour, enough simplicity for it to be a useful wallpaper and enough detail to keep it interesting.
I do have two critisisms though.
1) The 2D shape beside the main object doesn't really add to the composition IMO.
2) I don't think the shade of green used for the top of the object (below the rotor) fits very well. Its a bit washed out and dirty looking while the other tones are brighter and more saturated.
Otherwise I think this is a very successful image.
I must say youve come a long way from last I visited my dev page..... but i'd like to point out that.... that... tha way its constructed seems to actually prevent it from flying....... but still amazing..simply amazing.... dude make a mecha one.... any type.... im just curious if you can apply the same texturing in "complex" models... actuators and all....
Just one word, Wow!!! so very coolio. Love the dragonfly. I just discovered the 3d zone of this site, I'm new. You 3d guys rock, so crisp so clean, so slick... so how can I learn to do this kind of stuff? I know it is not like learning how to flip a burger, but I would like to know more. The 3d realm has always amazed me, but I know little about it. What program are you using for these works? And if a person wanted to learn more about the 3d thing where would one start? Sorry to sound so Ignunt wit a capitol Ig, but I know little about it but want to know more.
Any advice would be great. M
It's difficult for me to answer such broad questions without going too deep and detailed (time is a factor)... so I'll just suggest you try to get hold either 3D Studio Max or Cinema 4D - they seem to be the most friendly 3D programs out there, and then look around for tutorials teaching you tools and techniques that you can use for when you do your own projects and such.
Thank you, I know it was quite a vague question, but now I have a place to start. I actually have an old program called ray dream 3d, but found it a bit to tedious and never really learned how to use it. But then I guess to do 3d it will take some time and a lot of practice.
