Searching for Scraps by mtdana ()
A Herring Gull flies past a dock while searching for scraps of food on the surface.
The Smugglers Dock building is the perfect spot to perch some Gulls - but I didn’t look right until I added the bird poop :) I tried to make the bird poses and placement look as natural as possible. The water is just a flat mesh and a bump map with a second plane below it to form a seabed. The sky is one of my photos from Alaska. I used Octane Render standalone to render and Photoshop for the postwork.
Hope you like the results – Thanks for viewing and thanks so much for previous comments!
