Ambition-shmambition



The Illustration Friday word of the week is AMBITION. Sadly, my ambition can only be found with an electron microscope.

That is sad and somehow ambiguous; an equivocal statement for an egotistical production. Your microscopic ambition appears more like a giant matter in a huge universe. We have matching spirals/tunnels/vacuums. Also like the use of black and white - or greys.

So it's true. It's ALL relative. Or would that be relativity.

Lori said...

Oh, ha, ha. Relatively speaking.

Hope I didn't sound mean Tony :( Especially if your ambition really can only be found with an electron microscope. We have matching spirals which is cool.

Hi Tony,
You've got really good lighting effects behind the Red Cells. I'm not sure you were going for "Ambition surging through you veins", but that's what it looks like to me. ( Maybe because I'm a blood bank specialist)
Really nice highlights! Best Regards, Jacque

Surreal and fun!

No, Anonymous, I didn't think it was mean! It's definitely not surging through my veins, Jacquelyn, it's just kind of there. Veeeeery tiny.

I did a search on the internet to see how to do an electron microscope effect with 3ds max. Of course, there's a shader plug-in you can buy for a few hundred dollars. Luckily, I found a tutorial that told you how to do it with the regular 3ds shaders. An additional trick was to have a very tiny depth of field, the way a real microscope does. Glad you liked!
