Stones in Sea

Stones in Sea

I find it is time to give my images more attention.

My style is not to be too pushy, I don't have a problem of a huge ego, but sometimes it is a pity that because of this I have a feeling my images get lost on the internet. This time I am pulling out one photo I made but also printed, one meter high, and framed it. The image now hangs on a very prominent place in my house with a beautiful frame. This is only one example what you can do with my images, think of your house or office. Think interiordesign.
The screenshot also shows a possibility of what you could do but also shows an example price.

When I made image I was walking along the shoreline when this scene caught me, one of those magic moments. Cloudy day, calm winds and a sunset making it hard to see where the horizon and the sea meets. On the line of the horizon you can see, very slightly, on the right side a distance island.

Wadden Sea UNESCO Heritage

Wadden Sea UNESCO Heritage

Wadden Sea UNESCO Heritage site.


One of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. Maybe I am exaggerating that but it is a marvelous area.

I am talking about the Wadden Sea, Waddenzee in Dutch and Wattenmeer in German or Vadehavet in Danish, a vast area from The Netherlands, Germany up to Denmark.

The whole area is mostly protected by the Frisian Islands north of the mainland. The Dutch and German part of the Wadden Sea is on the UNESCO's World Heritage List.

The story behind Rubber Duck

The story behind Rubber Duck

Rubber Duck


It may seem to be a simple image, my rubber duck really is a little more complicated. That is all my fault as I have animated it, I have done this so I can use my ducky for multi-purposes.

Without going to deep in the animation technique as there are enough Blender 3D tutorials on the net, I am showing you what can be done after a lot of reading, experimenting, googling, etc.
It took me a couple of hours to figure our how to animate the eyes without the need of moving the eyes separately and don't go all cross-eyed.
Basically every eye has it's own animation bone that has a "Copy rotation" constraint with a bone I places between the two eyes. So both eyes make the same rotation as the middle bone. This bone has a "Damped Track" to the bigger bone, the selected bone on the images. This selected bone is the bone I use to steer the eyes in the direction I like.

Another problem I faced were the eyes that are modelled like cartoon eyes. Normal round eyes are no problem to rotate but oval cartoon eyes look really weird if they are rotated, they pop out of the head. I solved this with a Lattice around the eyes, now the eyes "deform" to the shape of the Lattice. This may not be the best solution but that is what I came up with.

Once again an image is promoted as "Featured image" on "Fine Art America". This time not one time but twice!

Think I am pretty lucky with my images that I share in groups. It does take a small effort to contribute, even though I only share to a few groups, it is worth while.
Here are the links to these great groups.
Artwork 3D
Digital and Traditional 3D Modeling

This is the first image I posted in the upcoming series of similar images as I have quiet a few more on my hard disk ready to be processed. The thing is I made this in 3D and as I always make the finished image at least 4000 pixel meaning that my computer needs to work for hours to get a high quality render. So making 4 of these images could take in total a single day to process. In the mean time the computer can't do anything else but render images. It may take some more time, from a few days to months, but.....So much more to come!
