Nice roses entries on this page !!!
For those who want to see closer real roses, see my rose garden web site
and particularly, click on links below on this page , or see this other one
The latter is made with Xara X ; But certainly I will use ZBrush also in some cases after I will have learn it more in depth in December.
Oh, this is beautiful Slosh!! I love roses but didn't want to take the chance of messing them up so didn't even try them. Your little hanging oil candle & holder is lovely too!
And MB, I also love your rose! It too is very beautiful especially the red rose against the snow. (I hope it's snow!)

Very good images here! Love the roses, and everyones glass objects are turning out great! Here's mine. Tried to get a antique glass feel to it, bit it didn't turn out quite like I had wanted. Also, wanted this on a window with light coming through. Couldn't figure out the lighting. So here you go. Hope you enjoy!

Great images all! I am pleased as punch that you were all challenged. We have a few classical pieces in this bunch, and more to come I am sure.
Here's my Zsketch...
Just testing the water...
Pretty cool challenge Joe and great job on that water and sky in that one and those flowers in all those images.
Mik, great technique and very cool imagery... That reflection appearing is pretty cool! I like the painted one too!
Northstar, Great job on that glass and the modeling is very nice.
The Namek, I like it... has a primal look! Very cool!
Ron Harris, Great job... I really like the dark mysterious lighting!
Slosh, I agree with you flowers just aren't my thing either! Great painted look... Beautiful... Excellent glass!
MTB, Beautiful man, just beautiful!!!
DMerchen, That is a fantastic rustic image... Great lighting modeling and textures... Very well composed too!
I also recorded my sessions making the flowers(carnation, aster, and daisies). Here are the Zscripts... Enjoy and let me know if you like!
Oh, and here's my glass and flowerpetal materials that I used in this image!
I thought some people might find them useful!
Final piece on monday again. ;~)

"I am still Learning"
Pusghetti, you know what I hated about your script? ~G~ I looked at them right before I went to bed and wanted to stay up to try out the tricks. So nice. One of those things where I slap my forhead and wonder why the heck I didn't think of that. Thank you!
DMerchant, I think you captured the antique painting type look. Nice setting.
Mik, I like that. Makes me think of the flower a child brings to momma. ~G~
PG - thanks for the script and materials. Very nice of you to share. Your flowers are very pretty and the carnations in particular look so real. And of course I love the glass vase, elaborate and different in design. Cool!!
Finally got one done before the deadline.
I started by placing a plane on one player at a 60 degree angle on the X-axis. I then colored it in with the spray-brush stroke. Then I drew grass on top of it with the fiber-brush using the grass texture available in the Texture pallette.
The "trumpet-like" part of the daffodils was created using a sweep profile and then I pushed and pulled at the top edge with radial symmetry as well as adding some detail with the draw pointer. The petals were made from a gear3d tool and the things inside the flower were made from a sweep profile as well. I then multi-marked them and then made a polymesh out of a single daffodil flower which I then placed in the scene.
The leafy parts were made with a flattened sphere tapered on both ends and the stems were made from an adaptive skinned ZSphere.
For the glass part of the magnifying glass I placed it on the canvas and pressed 3Dcopy and then enlarged the object in the transform pallette to give it that "magnified" look. The bee was made from a unified skinned ZSphere and hand was made from a unified skinned ZSphere, as well.
I used an overhead sunlight with a shadow aperature of 180 as well as a shadowless overhead sunlight and a greenish sunlight comming from the bottom to simulate light reflecting off the grass.
The direction of companion mind should cooperate with rescue at lighting of a red lamp,or a buzzer. Please give me connection from a nearly extraordinary telephone.
Well, I did make a start on this one, but it was quickly obvious that it was going to take more time than I could spare at present, so I'm a no-show I'm afraid. (Got me a half-decent vase pretty quickly, but modelling the flowers was another story altogether.)
But just wanted to post to say what a great set of images this has produced. Irrespective of the claims of difficulties many of you have claimed to experience, it doesn't show in the results. Excellent stuff.
I love this challenge so much that I just couldn't resist doing another one. The image just popped into my head and I simply had to do it!! The roses have just a hint of transparency. They were created from a rose that I drew for an alpha, then made 3D and used as a tool.
Called: Opaque Glass Roses
