Artwork Description

A penguin sits on an iceberg in the arctic ocean, watching a tropical island float in air. This scene presented several challenges. I wanted the atmosphere to have the feeling of a calm morning over a cold ocean. I had to do a lot of tweaking to make sure it wasn't too bright, dark, warm, windy, etc. The second challenge was the material for the icebergs. I started with the basic snow material that comes with Vue. The color was plain white, so I mixed in some light blue. I added a variable highlight function using Dots. I made the highlights really bright so that the ice would glisten.

you are very talented, i think you captured the feeling off the picture, before i read yoyur description i knew it was dawn. *lol* i think its funny how there just that penguin there, looking as clueless as every, (i hope that doesnt offend you), while a floating tropical paradise is reight above his head. great job Smile

Art at its best.
