For such a relatively simple image this has taken a long time to get somewhere near right and I am still not entirely happy with it. some areas where the poses aren't quite the ticket and one or two issues with the overall composition but I know by now that if I keep fiddling with this I will completely ruin what I was trying to achieve.
This all started with the Martini Set from the Props Club (thanks Traveler!) and I was tring to think of something to do with it other than ladies sipping drinks at a bar. Then I got to thinking about one of my "real life" friend's favourite artists Michael Godard and decided to make the Martini accoutrements larger than life. Nothing like the humour in his images and my olives are much less animated but hey, you takes your inspiration where your muse can find it.............right :o|
The backdrop is from the RDNA Drapes with one of their free sequin shaders applied. Also uses the Liberte Dress for V4 and Stylish Shoes for V4 from Daz.
Many thanks to AGentleMuse for the free reflective floor - talk about a real time saver *grins*
I really enjoyed constructing this image and I'm going to have to see what other drinks based images I can come up with. So, if you know of any good sets out there that are specific to certain drinks I would love to know about them!
Finally a huge thank you to all those artists out there that inspire me to try and improve with each and every render (this one isn't a step forward and may even take me backwards a little but it was that most important of things....FUN), the content creators who provide me with such inspiring items (both free and paid for), those who take the time to look at my little submission and all those who take the time to comment (I do appreciate you all!) and to those people I have met through our shared love of 3D - without you I would have given up long ago, thank you for keeping me going when I'm ready to give up! (I need to learn the fine art of punctuation I think *grins*)
Best viewed, as usual, full size..............THANKS for stopping by!
