I am well behind the word count if you go by the take the month and divide by the number of days goal. However, this does not worry me as I know that it will come.
Today’s Artwork is Crystal Flowers. I made the flowers more translucent, moved them away from the arch and choose sunset rather than moonlight. I will crop this one a bit before printing so that the flowers are not quite so dead center.
I received a couple of questions about how did I create them.
The flowers were made in a 3d Sculpt program. The software lets you create what is called a sculpt map. A sculpt map looks like this. When you apply this sculpt map texture to a 3d building block in a 3d enviornment it morphs into the flower shapes that I have “photographing”. In the 3D environment that I work in, the basic shapes come up looking as if they are made of plywood. I then choose a texture. These flowers have textures that are designed to look like cut gems, diamonds and saphires. I tinted the one flower purple as I wanted it to appear more like an amythyst.
