    4 Star Fishead

    This is a character I did based on a character Proton demonstrated at SIGGRAPH. Its uses some node textures.

    It was fun to do.

    That is a pretty cool [even if a little disturbing, in a merry way] image.
    Loving the lighting around the shoulder and ear - it's other-worldly in a very pleasant way.

    Well done, ace work Dude.

    "Its actually a self portrait.

    Mother will be proud." <--- LMFAO! Nice one!

    flakester,
    Thanks, I really try and transfer the aesthetics from my 2D over to 3D.

    Yes Mothers jaw, Papas ears.

    Hi JeffrySG,
    Believe or not, it has radiosity. I baked it, to speed rendering when I had to have this printed out.
    Soft shadows could be interesting, I plumbed for the hard shadows, I felt it suited the look. Not saying I always make the right artistic decisions of course

    Thanks everyone for the comments

    Really nice render. I love the little LW medal. Great look!

    "The 'right' artistic decisions" .. isn't that somewhat contradictory?
    Playing guitar is an endless process of running out of fingers.

    Yes it is I suppose. Theres so many paths we could off course make. My decisions are really based on what intuitively works..thats after thousands of hours of practice.
