Based on the original image by Kei Phillips (kinkei), an awesome artist with a great gallery. I took a break from personal work on vacations and decided to make this image in 3D. Original image: http://kinkei.deviantart.com/art/Mermaid-Tea-Party-131974984 It was created in 3 days of free time, plus 6 or 7 hours of render time at 5600 px wide. I took a few liberties with textures and environment since it was a bit challenging to keep the original mood. Modeled in Softimage, rendered in mental ray, textures and post in Photoshop. Special thanks to Kei Phillips, and take a look at her works here! http://kinkei.deviantart.com/ http://www.keiframes.blogspot.com thanks for watching!
