beautiful renders, don’t you love Carrara ? : )
something from a few weeks ago to illustrate the concept “Surveillance”
Had a go at making a terrain from scratch with the editor and came up with this.
Learned something new about Carrara that I don’t think is covered in any manual, when you are using the program time speeds up. It’s 2am where I live and I didn’t think it was any later than 10pm, better get some sleep.
Would love some critique on this one as something doesn’t look quite right.
ah yes, wait till you get up one morning in July and fire up Carrara and when you go to bed it is still July but five years later
On the image - a good compositional technique to tie foreground and back ground into each other is to use a vertical. lIke a telegraph pole, tree or lighthouse.
So in this case you could use the light house to tie the terrain into the sky (you are already using the ship to tie the ocean into the terrain) But the lighthouse would have to breake the horizon line for this to happen.
Also sometimes a triangle is a good compositional tool (like in traditional paintings of the crucifixion). In this image you have the boat the light house and the sun as starting points for your triangle.- so it’s interesting to think how they can be arranged.
Lighthouse traditionally are iconic symbols for hope and light and stuff, so you could actually borrow a crucifixion composition from the old masters.
Also there is a possibility of the verticals in the masts mimicking that of the light house. So you could play that up. And maybe suggest other verticals somewhere. Also you could reflect the triangle in some of the shapes in your landscapes - even the negative shapes in the sky.
Lastly, in compositional terms, you could thionk about giving one of the items that make up your triangle more weight, - if everything is saying look at me then nothing gets looked at (I read that in a book : ) )
Not being picky, it;‘s a very good image with lots of atmosphere. !
