The recent CGSociety Surreal art competition produced some fascinating pieces as we would expect. I would love to find a way to dedicate time to entering such things myself.
This was the winning entry titled ‘time’ by Gediminas Pranckevicius and shows some real control with the tool (3Ds Max in this case) to realise a thoughtful piece that has a serene calmness while toying with our expectations. Comments are suitably targeting the water, composition and such, for me I actuallt really like the tree 🙂 here is a little closeup from the BIG version of the file on the site.
There are plenty of others to check out, I like this one by BarronImpossible
