Purpose of It's About the Art Forum

"Art is our one true global language. It knows no nation, it favors no race, and it acknowledges no class. It speaks to our need to reveal, heal, and transform. It transcends our ordinary lives and lets us imagine what is possible." ~ Richard Kamler

Imagine ... such a beautiful word! Everything that comes after it is considered creation and here, creation is about the Art!

In the 3D world there are so many imaginative, technical and non-visual things (that are an art form of their own) that need to happen behind the scenes before we can view a final product render that in turn inspires us to imagine and then moves us to create.

Sometimes what we end up with doesn't quite fit with what we saw in our minds eye and then sometimes it's totally opposite and takes a life of its own, becoming something much more than we ever imagined it could be. Both scenarios are equal opportunities to celebrate, share, learn and grow.

If you're stuck on something you just can't seem to get right you can share and ask for assistance in the Critique, Tips and Tricks area. When giving feedback here please be authentic, be considerate and be kind. There are real people with real feelings on the other side of the screen.

Want to have some fun, stretch outside your comfort zone and maybe learn some new skills and make some new friends in the process? Visit the Render Challenge area to join in, cheer on or start a challenge of your own.

Contests are a great way to focus and practice your artistic skills and we have some really nice ones planned for you. We'll be posting all of the details in the Contests area.

And to get to know more about some of the artists behind the art, we will be sharing interviews and articles in the Contributing Artist Spotlight area.

When posting links and images, please remember that because we consider ourselves a "PG-13" site, we will not accept nude, sexually suggestive, abusive, extremely violent or gory content.

Imagine ... and Enjoy Creating!

    I wonder if you could get it in Iray using the metal flakes really fine... will have to try when I can get it all back up and running :)

    • There should be a shader or some such that would give you that effect. You could try it and see what you get. Acutally........... now that I think about it. You will get that sheen on the unicorn texture. I was flipping back through some old posts and check it out. http://hivewire3d.com/forum/filedata...8785&type=full

      • Harry's Arab Outfit now has its own thread (renders included). Didn't want to clog up this one too much. http://hivewire3d.com/forum/forum/di...goes-to-arabia

        • An image using one of the fantasy sets I'm working on.
          The base is a free prop from years ago with a gold texture on it.
          Mane and tail is from the Mane and Tail Packs by CWRW from my Rendo days.
          Body texture is my own work.
          I aimed for a bric-a-brac look.

                    • Thanks Lyne ........... might be something in the works on those soonish. Once I get the latest project out of the way, and possibly .............. a fantasy tack expansion set for the classic tack .........but.................. That Western Saddle is the bomb!!

                      WOW!!! Laurie!! ................... WOW!! That is a real stunner!!! AWESOME................... (ok ok get your chin up off the floor) lol

                      I have been meaning to pick up that game bird pack of Ken's with the quail. I also have had my eye on Ron's powder brushes, but unless they have a pdf with them I can't use them in PS 7 unless they are converted. He does have some nice splash brushes that I can use.

                      Gorgeous work!!! Thank you for sharing!

                        It does sort of have that Remmington feel.
