Forever and a Cay by priteeboy Forever and a Cay by priteeboy
This harmonious hybrid between my Space art and my Tropical landscapes was submitted as a small celebration of my 2nd birthday since joining DeviantArt. Just see how far I have come when You compare this with a similar deviation submitted on my last birthday [link] Yes a years worth of practice does come a long way and so does the addition of new programs that have allowed me to expand my artistic horizons further.

Some may have picked up the clever title too, well thats not just a random thing. It was going to have a different name but when I said "the rendering has taken forever and a day" It struck me. Not only did the first render take over 71 hours ( nearly 3 days ) Much to my blind fury I realised the first render came out TOTALLY BLACK !! My computer couldn't handle the detail level so I rendered it smaller...all over again ! So the rendering alone took nearly a week, while the making of the 3D scene took at least 30 hours with another 10 or so hours in Photoshop... Hope it was worthwhile

So make my day and FAV LIKE CRAZY ! ...I consider it one of my personal bests.

like all my art, Ripping is prohibited. I've seen screenshots submitted which is OK provided you make a link back to my main page

Holy crap this looks like a photo manipulation! :wow: I had to check the category you'd put it in just to make sure it really was a drawing! The water in particular is insanely realistic looking. Overall looks like a lovely place to be =).

I almost forgot this one existed :slow: It was certainly above my usual standards for the time and I was pretty happy with the water especially :bow:

I just need someone to walk along that beach with. Our home would look out upon this. I would need some wind chimes for the breeze. and the weather would be warm and gentle, any rain that falls would do so softly. Of course I would have to have my creature necessities and comfort but that wouldn't be much. I wouldn't need a lot of things, like an Auto, loud music, and things of that nature, just a love who understands and a life that while serene will still open up possibilities each day.

Sounds good to me! Those the chimes might get annoying in hurricane season...Though not as annoying as those who blast their music loud enough for the whole neighbourhood to hear...at 1:00am :fight:

I hear you about the music and since the won't be any Auto's, no loud mufflers. We have an idiot that comes through about 5:30 in the morning and he just has to downshift all the time. We are only 2500 ft. from an Interstate, a large 4 lane highway that goes through the states, it is quieter than this idiot is. We are also at a four way intersection with stop signs posted at each corner, do you think they can read? No! right on through, I nearly got clobbered once. Our street ends, not a through street, but does that matter? No, again, they just turn around in my driveway or if they are really stupid, have gone over my lawn! OK, we will put up the wind chime occasionally, I will just lay my ear to your chest, that will be so soothing and so nice. Oh, what dreams are made of!!! Forever and Cay. Wear your Jeans, please, tight, and your leather pants, tight as well and your leather and other coats but on a really warm day, just your Speedo so I can lay my ear on your chest and hear the music within you..

Luckily it's rare for me to put up with something like that...anymore. Places I used to live in had jerks with their noise-enhanced cars passing through regularly, their music loud enough to make my windows vibrate before I even saw their high-beams burning through it. I think the average 20-something year old guy just takes too much pride in their car, I couldn't care less. But having said that - there is a certain degree I should care, I don't wanna drive something that's an embarrassment to be seen in :XD:

But then again, I've for a few years now been dreaming of a motorbike, they're so much more cooler than cars. But I also don't want to get mutilated in an accident, so 'm still unsure about that ^^; Oh, and I never wear speedos. I'm not a part of the 0.5% of guys who can look good in those :stinkeye:

It is not so much pride here, it is just being obnoxious. Our law enforcement has been cut back so--we need to save money and do useless things like--I don't know,  the money disappears and so does the services that we pay our taxes on! These idiots with their cars, you would think they would care about what they do but I guess that is asking way too much. Be a Jerk and care less about anything is their mantra. I have my doubts about humanity at times. A motor bike would be nice but not one of those things that sounds like a fleet of diesel trucks! How fast and loud do you really need to be? With our weather here, bikes are good in the warmer climes but not here in the Winter. Small cars would be great but the snow can really pile up in a hurry, again I advocate a tram system but that will never happen here although 70 years ago we had such systems, you still can walk the roadbeds through the country areas. Michigan is home of the Auto and the Auto rules here and no not in our best interest either.

I will take your word on the Speedo but I have my doubt, I think you underestimate yourself in that area. You are a heartthrob. I respect your view on it and won't make an issue, but, don't give up your Leather pants or Jeans or Coats, ever!!!

priteeboy Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
If you like you can draw similar. But if it looks too much alike I wouldn't upload it since inspiration is different than copying. Please don't use actual parts of the original in the drawing too (but it would probably be more accurate to try and draw from a photo anyway :camera:)

This one here was mostly done in Vue...it's a program dedicated to making detailed 3D landscape art. But it has high system requirements expected otherwise it will just crash a lot :dohtwo: Not to mention good o'l Photoshop plays a dominant role in most of my other work too :nod:

You know what this reminds me of? in a totally randome way, that is.

Destiny Islands from Kingdom Hearts. we know there's Play Island and then off of that is the main island. It looks like you're looking at the main island Play Island.

Also, great work. If I ever figure out how to do stuff like this, I can only pray it's as good as your work.
