I took this photo of this charming starling from the window of my computer room... He stayed on our roof for at least 3 hours not venturing more then 20 feet from the area he is perched on...

He was most charming and entertaining to watch....

And I took this photo with my window closed. Meaning I was shooting through a dual pane of glass... I would have opened the bottom half of the window but I would have to move the screen up & out of the way. Surely the noise of moving the screen would have frightened this fellow away....

When I first saw it, I thought it was a painting, the way the details come out.
Maybe the closed window explains the effect.

Almost... Robert Bateman like.

Fantastic picture, stemmer! You are very talented. And may I add that you keep your gutters in immaculate condition.

Software used - Vue Pro Studio 7, Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 ver 7 & free 3D models of gears from Google Sketchup's Warehouse...

Whenever I'm in a thread with mtbr & Hurley_108, I always feel like their giving me the gears.... :D :D :D

Just joking... it's blokes like those two that make this a fun place to visit and I appreciate their good spirited debating....

I modeled a very basic 3D mesh in Curvy 3D 1.5 which I rendered untextured & with no terrain in Vue Pro Studio...

I then brought the render into Corel Painter IX.5 where I painted over the render. The rider is hand drawn by me in Painter using an reference image... The terrain and plants are also all hand drawn by me in Painter.... The dragonfly was clone painted in Painter from a free stock photo from Stock.Xchng http://www.sxc.hu..

Cheers

Please view enlarged....

I imagined an alternative reality world where explorers like Columbus journey to the new world not in sea going ships but ships of the air...

I created the image in Corel Painter IX.5.

I used this free stock photo for the waterfall
http://www.sxc.hu/photo/1129572
Using Painter's cloning brushes, it was painted into a blank canvas...

The water, birds, distant trees & terrain were hand painted by me in Painter...

The airship I modeled in Hexagon 2.5 and Wings3D. The base mesh was brought into Vue Pro Studio and rendered untextured....

Using Paint Shop Pro X2 Ulitmate I merged the airship into waterfall painting... I then painted over the airship in Painter...

I later added the two distant airships using the same techique as on the nearer airship...

Happy Easter everyone

Kenmo / aka Stemmer

Thanks kindly... I'm glad you picked out the sentinal as I was afraid he would not stand out well enough...

Cheers

a sentinal from the village,to greet the new arrivals,looks like a lamp or staff in his hands. :wink:

That's why I like this one,it tells a story to me based on what you said and what I see.
You got the scenario going with the explorers and the rest is left up to the viewers imagination when you see the sentinal.
