    Fantastic work David. :)

  • Thank you, Debi! Lots of interesting possibilities with this one, as I see you’ve also already discovered. I’m sure you and Jackie will push me on to some really great ones. Best, David

    Oh, David! You really took this one to another level! Great render and nice colors!

  • Thanks so much, Peggi! I really thought this was more or less the basic image…I am most impressed (so far) with Jackie’s effort on Julia Lights, but she’s had a few days’ head start on us :o) Looking forward to more beauties from you and the group, David

    Lovely work David. Love the colors too.

  • Thanks a lot, Bunny! The color tweaking in Apo has taken a while to master, but it helps that I now have learned how to further enhance it in postwork software. The biggest challenge for me in RB is to make the colors bright enough to be eyecatching as thumbnails, without being too garish in full view. I find it interesting that scale and color are not independent variables :o) Best, David

    Wow, lots of depth and design David. I always enjoy the names of your pieces as well :)

  • Thanks very much for the fave and these observations, Carolyn! I was playing all weekend with some 3D apo flames before I got to this tutorial, so I wanted to try some pitch and perspective where I could without straying too far from the tutorial parameters on this first one. The ones I’ll post today are a bit more advanced – hope you’ll like them, too. As for the naming, I take it as a verbal challenge, like haiku, to make myself, and hopefully the observer, think at multiple levels with a minimum of words, while also trying to qualify for different groups like Inspired Art, Cutting Edge, and Our World of Fantasy. And the most fun part is that after I work up a good name, I use it to search for interesting Youtube videos that I generally haven’t even seen myself before. I owe all these entertaining ideas to the RedBubble environment and the support of talented artists like you, so THANKS to you all! David
