Nice render of the Rookie Carey, and don't worry about the typos, we all make them.
I have a college degree in commercial art, so I like to where the hat of illustrator, course that is when I am doing art work, when I am writing I have other names I use...lol
Sometimes however I do things that border dangerously on being fine art, this is one of those works. Often also my work is heavily edited in photoshop, more then a few times, my renders end up more digital painting then render.
Is that wrong?
Is there some invisible line you cross where you are a a bad renderer and a great digital painter?
Is there a name change involved?
Can I post my work at 3D sites or should I search out or make a place for digital painters?
All good questions,
I have retouched enough photo's that I know how to spot touch ups in advertisements and complete make overs...A trained eye is hard to fool. Now I am almost certain the advertising agency got paid and I just bet the photographer got paid. The point is any more a CG artist doesn't much care what you call them as long as they get paid.....lol
Now I did this here as a comment to you Miss B is because I assumed you commented here because you knew others would be reading my reply to you and that I might as well speak to them too...lol
Don't worry I don't require you to raise your hand if you need to be excused during class, I just stop typing and wait for you to get back...lol
Yes I am picking fun with you, pardon my dead pan delivery...lol
Getting back to the lesson....
between those of us that use photo's in the back grounds with our renders or use some program to create a background we all have the same identity problem. What do we call each other...ah if you had been listening I am suggesting the name CG Artist. Least that is how I am going to refer to it here, now those folks that make those great digital abstract picture, you are just going to have to come up with your own name I official claim this one.... lol
A lot of this picture has been modified from the rendered image, in fact almost every part of this render has been modified I cut out the sky, I reworked the colors....I adjust the light and the contrast. I did this more a number of reason the least of which was to create contrast. I did it also to create distance or to make the foreground "pop" a little more as you might want to say instead.
There we'll take a "brake" here I know all you said Miss B that you like my render but I heard a question in there somewhere and I hope I answered it for you....
