A brief rant.
Gah. Okay. There are some amazing computer programs out there, but for crying out loud that doesn’t mean that you get to ignore the basic elements of composition. Nor does saying that your work is surreal mean that you get to ignore shading when you are using hyper-real stock elements from a program. Plus, it’s not surreal just because a tree is floating. It’s lazy.
Here is an example of computer rendered art which is very, very good. Please, if you are going to send me computer art try to be this good.
In fact, here are the websites of the artists we’ve printed at Shimmer. If you want me to use your art, you have to be this good or better.
Please. Know how to render. Know what gravity means. Know how light behaves. Understand composition.
