Such very cool work!!!

Tony LaRocca said...

thanks to all for your kind comments. Yes, arxo, I made it with 3dsmax. I tried using the caustics option. (The fill light from light reflecting off objects instead of simply using fill lights.) It comes out looking much more natural, but takes forever!

Actually, what took forever was "beating up" and rounding the statue I made, to make it look more like a statue and less like a person!

I kept gazing your work … one word popped out: mesmerizing. The floor is reflecting the light, and the mysterious smoke in the background, plus the stately figure. Wow.

I'm waiting for this ghostly image to come awake and alive. Others are right- there is a coldness to this one, and I'm not sure I'd want to be around when it did wake up, but I wouldn't mind watching from a safe distance.

As for the title, I don't know it. My mind went immediately to Jimmy Neutron and his friend Shane's love of Ultra Lord...
