Re: Mercury: Messenger of the Gods


Well, I finally have my Mercury entry done (see below). When I brought up the lack of mercury entries Saturday afternoon, I had mentioned rendering mercury droplets would be pretty tough, and I found out it is. For my first time trying it I think I did all right, but I plan on revisiting this when I have more time to see if I can improve upon it. I ended up going with the profile head I had been contemplating. I am glad to see that more mercury entries have since been posted (great job Jaden and toe). I'm glad to throw mine into the mix. Better late than never.

If you haven't looked at my Carbon Footprint entry, please take a peek (also see below). If you like it, please consider voting for it as well. Thank you.

Thanks! Just noticed you put up another version of the neon bunny. Going to go vote for that one as well now. Thanks again.

Thank you! Being such a late entry there's little chance that will happen but hopefully it will go for a pretty good run. Thanks again.

Thank you! I'm definitely going to revisit this. It was a lot of fun trying to render liquid mercury. I think I'll do a little side project with the same idea but using the symbol for mercury. I think that would look pretty nice. Thanks again.

Thank you! I think it came out pretty well for a first attempt at such a thing. Fun to do, but tough to pull off. Thanks again.

Go away for a while & see you have a really nice new entry! This looks like it could have been tough to create with the liquid look. Great job, it looks really slick! Good luck next derby!

Hello again and thanks again. This was pretty tough to pull off. I know with more time I can improve upon it as I didn't quite capture the effect I was looking to achieve, but not too bad for a first try. As I said in my Carbon Footprint post, I may be too drained to get anything going for this next derby. May give it a shot, but it looks like a long shot. If so, I doubt it will be posted tomorrow. Thanks again for all of your kind words. It is great to hear. Of course, I welcome critiques as well, as that is the best way to make improvements. Have a great night. Hope to hear from you again soon.
