softly three by sbr softly three by sbr
representations of three/da

color scheme.
3 main renders connected with the lighting. (middle one is semi difficult to see due to the size)
the futuristic style. symbolic of 'the new style' of da
the large size can be symbolic of the large commnunity of da
the renders suprpassing the boders can be symbolic of growth within the community.
the chaos can well represent how cranky DA is being right now. terrible two's are very apparent on the servers.
theres more, but i don't want to spell it out for you.

other than that you people are being overly critical of your first glances. take your time and think it through. 3 was a very broad topic, and rather than choosing something simplistic to work with, i thought this through and intentionalyl made it difficult to diffuse why/how it relates to 3 and DA. rather than smother thing with useless vectors and hordes of threes, it's creative and forces you to think beyond a first glance. full view please for higher details.

progs used: 3dsm, bryce, maya5, ps7
languages: (from left to right along the top) english, spanish, french, german, italian, portuguise
inspired by: [link] [opposing forces]
time spent:about 2 weeks off and on. i originally never planned on posting it in the contest.
other info:i know everybody isn't going to comment on this, but i appreciate those who take the time. all comments will be returned, although often it takes me a few days to do it. critism is more than welcomed. oh... and for the judges, i'd like for this to be judged in indy-art.

OH One more thing. What's great about it is, I've seen that abstract 3-d stuff seriously proliferate to the point where anyone else who tries to do it is called a "trendwhore".

This is *not* trendwhorish. Yes, I see some 3d abstraction, but this doesn't even seem abstract to me: there definitely seems a story there. The story may change each time I look, but definitely, there's a story.

This is great.

It's great because it evokes things to me, for instance, the River Styx or some other river between this world and the next. I see something new in it each time I look at it; at first I thought it was a dragon on either side of a river.

I can't really think of much else to say about it; I'd offer critique but honestly if I didn't like it I would've not bothered saying anything, and I can't think how I'd do it better...

Usually I don't like 3dwork because it just looks like they've spent 5 seconds on it doing a step by step tutorial.

But THIS, :O (Eek) Humpin that leg!

I love the coloursceme, and the liney wispey wirey things (don't know what to call them).

Well done, great work :D (Big Grin)

I see this kind of abstract work all the time, very complex, beautiful, caotic, eyecandy, and confusing. I would love to see a tutorial on how to do something like this from start to finish, including simular ones with small 2d text and lines. Anyone who reads this please point me in the right direction!!!


Breathtaking! +fav

COMPOSITION IS EXCELLENT
YET DEFINITION AND DIFFERENCE
IS A KEY TASK FOR ALL ARTIST
LIKE IT OR NOT MASTERING THE ELEMENT OF ART
IS NOT AN ACCOMPLISHMENT SINCE ART
ALREADY MASTERED US...

KEEP EXPLORING MEDIUMS AND CONTENT
BLEND AND FUSE THE UNKNOWN....

This is a really interesting piece. First off.. it is kinda hard to see the three different rndereings but fun to try and decifer where they start. Second off.. I love the metalic kinda metaly feel to this. Third off.. I love the lighting.. I prolly like this second to the metalic feel. All in all this is a great piece. :D (Big Grin)

what does this have to do with Deviant? I know you tried to put 'symbolism' behind it, but hell, I could take three pics of my cat and say it was for the third birthday.. with some cool special effects thrown in here and there. wooh.

cool pic, really cool pic, but don't see what the hell it has to do with a birthday contest for an art community

Didn't I see this last week... actually this shit all looks the same. what would of worked is ... wait.. im not gonna give you ideas. I am just tired of seeing uncreative work. If i could afford 3dMax bryce and maya5! I'd use them to create and not exploit.
+ there is no ressemblance to DAv3 here.
subscribe and you'll see.

cool.piece i guess... but the first thing that strikes me is "sure it's green...but its not DA green" ... nice try with the attempt to justify this being a contest effort ... i'm thinking that a picture of a mass of twigs on a forest floor could offer "interpretations" as myriad ... as far as a trendy 3D goes..its pretty good

What bothers me about the picture is trying to interpret the three out of it, even though it is suppose to be the light. *Sits here staring at it for hours* Hmm, it's generally the style, as nice and elaborate as it is, I have to admit that I see too many almost identical copies of these type of pieces (most are like wallpapers though) (and I really need to nag one artist in this contest who keeps posting her dang cats! I've seen too many of them!). But it is nice the choice of colors, the light interaction, the different textures, and the line of text. I have nothing generally against it, but some people are just more bold with getting their message across, no offense intended.

I really think this is an awesome piece... I thought it seemed pretty original!! It's really beautiful, although I kinda..didn't buy into the 'meaning' you gave it. Reading the description just made me think you were actually *searching* for meaning in it, rather than being inspired by it. But hey, that was just my take..

You are very talented :D (Big Grin) and I hope you keep on regardless of the comments of others. Prove us wrong..prove that you really meant for the meaning to be inherent in the pic...just dont tell us we aren't 'getting' it and that you 'don't want to spell it out' I mean.. yes, we are looking, but maybe we need a little er..direction? I dunno.. maybe I'm an idiot at this hour in the morning..

Anyway, awesome work!
