Thanks man! It took about a year off & on to finally finish it. I started it on my old computer and got to a point where I just couldn't add any more polygons, so I put it on the shelf for a few months until I got a new machine that could handle the massiveness of this scene. Even with my new system, six million polys, massive textures, environment fog, and 5000x7500 resolution made for a 5 day render. :noes:

As far as what was going through my head, I guess I's have to say not much. :laughing: It started out with the idea to use ivygen to grow vines on the inside of a poser mesh to see what it would look like and it went on from there. I had the woman with the realflow fountain first, and then I built up the building around it, and just kind of added more things as I got inspired, but there was no original plan or direction I wanted to go in. Sometimes I start out a scene with an exact idea of what I want it to look like, but that wasn't the case with this one. It wasn't until I had a lot of the scene fleshed out that I came up with an overall concept for the piece. Honestly, I never was really happy with this scene, but I figured that I'd spent so much time on it already, I might as well finish it. I've decided to start working with ZBrush to add a new dimension to my work because I feel like I've pushed the limits of what I can do with my current skill set. The same thing happened when I was working with Bryce. I still plan on sticking with 3d surrealism exclusively, but I think mastering ZBrush will enable me to do a lot crazier shit with my models. :D

:peace:

Nice one, what is your new system like?
The scene really does look EPIC, 6 mil polygons and that many programs must have been pretty frustrating to juggle between : O
I respect how much patience you have working and adding to a scene, my inspiration/dedication to a scene usually fizzles out after a month max, but I do put some projects in cold storage for another time.. :)

I am really excited to hear that you're getting into ZBrush, prepping my breeches for full on soiling.

Thanks man... My new system is a Core i3 with 8 geebees ram, a Radeon 6950 2 gb video card, and the crowning jewel is the ASUS Xonar Essence STX sound card to drive my AKG K702 headphones. :tunes:
