    The Poseidon Adventure

    hi everybody,
    i'm glad to be here to share with you some of my production. this ship was producted and used to transport treasrues during the first world war. it disappeared without any trace near the Arctic Circle during shipment. no one knows the reason of her disappearance. and now she is discovered again. the expedition is going to find the answer of the secret remained unknown.

    I think it's got some good qualities but I find the 3 point perspective jarring (especially the truck on the left) and I knew it was based on a 3D model right away because generally 2D uses 2 point perspective. You can actually set your 3D camera to use 2 point perspective in max and that would create a more natural viewpoint.

    My only other crit would be to try and create more interesting shapes on the icebergs.

    The one thing I noticed was the guy with the flares bringing in the helecopter. If they are flying past him or directly over him, I don't know how they could see him. Now if you had another helecopter coming in from the distance, it would make more sense for him to be there. Otherwise I would replace him with a becon or spotlights or even a coast guard smoke grenade. Or you could possibly move him so he isnt directly under the helecopter ex: on top of the crates.

    beautiful work man, i love it
    my only crit is that the ice wall doesn't feel very... substantial where its cutting through the ship. its too... clear i guess. doesn't feel very thick or hard. but outside that area it looks ok.
    anyway, great work. cant wait to see more.

    Interesting! Did you paint right over the gray render shown, or did you use a different render with colour, textures etc.?

    Very good stuff here... I happen to think the intense perspective really adds to the fact that, "Holy fu... that's a ship... in the glacial wall..." it makes it all more fantastic in the sense of such a ridiculous discovery! The only crit I have is what complete2 said about the glacial ice looking more like the kind you get out of your freezer... pack it down, there's been thousands of days of snow and cold caked onto it so show it as a solid mass capable of destroying a ship then holding it for ages.

    Great great work.

    Only the heart intrinsically noble can succeed...

    I really like this picture, but the way the ice has managed to grab the ship and yet continues to break way with such clean lines rather takes away from the realism. If the ship were lodged in the ice in a more natural manner, it'd add a lot to the image.

    I really love the high level of detail in the piece. It really comes alive. The lighting is great, too.

    Not an expert, but a big fan!

    This is excellent! I love the render style, and that snow really gives you a sense of the atmosphere.

    My only crit, which has been mentioned above, is the clear ice surrounding the ship.
