Quiet patio where you can sit and read, relax, play a game with family or friends. You can sit in the pool and let the water wash away your cares.

Sound like an advertisement for a feature at a resort? I hope I created that feel with this image. I spent about 40 hours modeling, texturing and setting this one up. I was motivated by wanting something as a true portfolio piece. No competition or assignment this time. This was all for promoting my abilities.

Thanks Oana Vinatoru at Blendermama for her input and advice, and everyone who hit the “like” button on Facebook.

  • I don’t know computers, so . . . As far as pure aesthetics . . . I love this scene. The light and shadow, the movement in the water, even the angles give the feel of a warm – not too hot – summer afternoon. Only one thing; is the sun/moon an hanging ornament? If so, turning it a little off center would imply a breeze. Also the likelihood or capturing it square like that is minuscule. Otherwise, Perfect! Somewhere I would like to vacation!
