    I really like your simpler pieces. The skull with the flower afro is great with wonderful colours.

    Your last one is coming along really well, with all the elements working together. If I could make one comment, it seems a bit lopsided to the left to me - perhaps try extending the black of the canvas to the left till it feels balanced? Or maybe try extending the rock to the left of the head and move the cicada with it so they don't line up with the rock at bottom left and continue the flow of the piece.

    Cool

    SpiritDreamer,

    Your style has really progressed over the last couple of years. your use of colors seem to have a velvet quality to them, IMHO, a quality that I like allot. I like how in this current piece, even though the colors are still in your darkish other worldly pallet, the scenery almost feels alive. Like the Nature spirits almost take form in each natural object of the scene.

    Very cool!

    I am looking forward to your next piece!

    Gridlost...Hey, Thank You very much for the kind words and thoughts about my work ...I'm fortunite enough to live near the ocean, a salt water marsh, and an overgrown with moss and grasses abandoned granite quarry that has nice cliff ledges that have waterfalles when it rains...A whole little mini world with all of the elements needed to create scenes like the ones i've been doing lately..I spend alot of time these days walking my dog and absorbing what I see around me,...alot of magic happening in nature,..just have to take the time to take mental notes and notice it..

    Segaholic...Hey Thanks Man..Glad you enjoy that one....Just one of those quicky experiments that turned out the way it wanted to..Wasn't preconcieved..intentionally anyway..

    Thanks for the visit guys..Always welcomed, useful, and also very much appreciated..
    Glenn

    Start of a little FiberMesh / LightCap experiment this morning.

    Glenn, this morning's post is one of your best! How did you achieve the reflection? Is it just the fibermesh trees flipped? And the gradient of the light on the water surface is stunning. I know more or less how to do it in PS but how in the world did you do in in Zbrush?

    VoodooDad...Thanks Man ..About your questions,...The lighting, ...was all done in ZBRUSH LightCap..I just played with the sliders...new lights layers thing,... and whatever else I could fiddle with in that feature until I got what was needed for the scene..It'sa a new feature to me, so can't be much help to you there...just alot of trial and error,..mostly error..at this stage of the game anyway.
    For the reflection part that you asked about....I just took a couple of primitives,..the Helix 30 and the Sweep Profile 3d ones and played with them in the Initialize feature of ZBRUSH..bottom right on your screen list menue,..until I got a shape that I thought would be interesting for the fibers to grow on, and just went from there...Brought the shape onto the screen after it had vines growing from it..it reminded me of a tree on a pond shoreline,..so I just drew a line divideing the fibermesh tool where I thought the shoreline would look good...I like the idea of growing the fibers on wierd abstract or organic type of shapes...never know what to expect when the fibers appear

    Hey Deke...Thanks Man...Glad you like that one.....It's my favorite of the bunch also..captures what I was after..feeling and moodwise...

    I put together a visual explanation for VoodooDad this morning...May be useful to someone else..also...who knows..Thought I would post it just in case it may be..
