During this long drought of me not being able to produce any new art I was saved when I realized that I made this last year and never uploaded it. It's not in my nature to just forget to upload something I spent a couple of weeks working on, and that wasn't the case here either. This was actually designed to be printed out large and laminated as an aquarium background which was going to be given an Avatar at night theme. Unfortunately the real life setup didn't look as good as Imagined it and so was aborted (ugh, couple-hundred dollars well spent :doh:) And I guess that disappointment put me in a sour mood about it for a while.
But Now I'm over it I can re-appreciate this again as another artwork which can finally be put into my gallery. The composition was set up for that initial purpose though and so may not entirely be what I would have gone with if it was going to just be another art-piece from the beginning and nothing more. But with no layered file anymore, Myself and the viewers are stuck with it as-is ;)

Anyway, it's safe to say that everytime a big movie, game, book, whatever comes out, all fan-art generated from it is about the characters. Avatar seems to have inspired the highest ratio of landscape-focused tributes and I guess this is another contributor to that (plus if I tried to draw a Na'Vi I'm sure it would have come out laughably fake compared to the scenery). I even paid careful attention to some good references I found of the fictional plants that made the most significant impact in the night-time scenes. My inner gardener was very critical about achieving botanical accuracy to plants that aren't even real :lmao:

Your artworks are fantastic, this one in particular called my attention. Awesome! :love: 3D art can really be considered SERIOUS after watching what you created. Sadly here on DA 3D art doesnt still have the place it deserves. I'm telling you as a varied artist who also make 3D and love it.  And your gardener should congrat you!

Glad you liked my work. Sadly 3D isn't really a big deal here. It's probably because most people don't understand it and assume it requires no real work. Plus I think a lot of the users of it don't really have the proper training to utilize it properly either since it's much harder to learn than digital painting, so a lot of the 3D galleries do look kinda "unfinished" so to speak. Though it does mean less competition in the 3D category, which is fine for those who can do something with it =p

YOU ARE TOTALLY RIGHT! What an accurate answer you gave me, I'm surprised but it's the truth! I for example, make my own 3D characters, I dont download them and push the Render Button. u.u I make even the textures but my artworks are not so viewed as the digital paintings, even though they take really a good deal of effort.
