Re: Moonlight Sonata

I had started working on this one months ago, and submitted an early attempt that was way too dark and without enough pop and color. I feel much much better now that I've had time to finish it (tho it was a rush to get done before the midnight Hobbit showing)

I was going to say this looks familiar. I agree it does look better.

There are several places in the US and in Iceland where I've seen this, or similar, illusions. I think the picture you linked to is in the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington.

This particular image I modeled from scratch in a 3D rendering program (DAZ Bryce, which I've used for about 12 years now (DAZ is the third company to own Bryce, I believe)), and then worked backward to transfer that into Adobe Illustrator.

Here's a test-render I ran to use as a reference (to get the reflections and placement right)



I don't know if you were suggesting that I used the image you linked to, but I just wanted to show that I did not. As you can see, the shape and placement is all in my model, not a separate image. (Also - if your image is of the place I think it is, the foreground land is not an island, but a peninsula, that keeps getting higher as you move to the left.)

i was only wondering if you had used it as inspiration. it's pretty obvious that you didn't just copy it. interesting that it might be a real place. i had always assumed it was a photoshop.
