Cambot is one of my most loved series of your amazing talents to date! You have given such in depth detailing and have added a funny little humor to this one! The shading is perfect and the lighting that you have placed in areas on and around this adorable little machine is impeccable! The broken part of Cambot is laying right in the perfect spot. I hear this print tell a story of Cambot rolling along to make sure that all is in working order in her world and lo and behold a gear got loose and as she was rolling toward the hallway ahead of her it dropped off and where you have placed the loose gears is where a couple of bounced off gears would lay as her arm fell off. Perfect shadowing and the glare from the lights add to this masterpiece! As always your details are perfect and in sync with the whole print! The depth blur is amazing at the end of the hallway and matches exquisitely to how far the little cambot is away from it.The perfectly designed brick wall has an amazing contrast to the gorgeous piping along the side of the wall. The ceiling grates,lights and chain add for such realism,that it makes me have so much empathy for this beautifully created Cambot Print! I could say much more to add to this perfect Masterpiece,but the picture shows it all so well. By the way....Cambot looks just as cute and adorable and perfect in the Real Life Prints too. All the Cambot prints are flawless and are mastered by an artist that has become one of my favorite Deviant Artists! I should know they are perfect,because .....I have bought all of your Cambot prints and looking forward to many more to come! Ark4n is by far one of the best Deviants to this site and to the Graphic Artists Community!!(IMHO). <3 :0)
I absolutely love Cambot!!! I still have to put all the Cambot Pictures I bought from you in frames! I just finished setting up my home office and will take a picture of your prints on my Office walls.
This is the third one I have seen of this little robot. I think he/she is adorable and oh no!!!! He /she dropped her little arm. My goodness.....I can almost cry for this little robot! The two little gears on her side look so perfect and the tiling ,the blurring. Yes...definately I have to have this one too. Okay I think I will have to start collecting this little robot! I have seen the one with the Tractor and the telescope and this one. Going to find more. All I need to do now is click Request Print. :0) . Number 2 on it's way soon : )
This one and "Mechanical Flaw" are very meaningful to me because it was the point that I reached a good technical level.
The cambot (the "camera-like robot") was a joke about my own attitude toward issues, such as find that losing an arm is just a scratch. I've broken two bones of the leg once and I called home just to tell my mother that I would arrive early
My suggestions: - Follow the video tutorials of the Blender Guru and of the Blender Cookie. - Take a look at the book "Blender 2.5 Lighting and Rendering." It explains a lot about lighting in Blender. - Read the book "Digital Lighting and Rendering", an excellent reference, software independent.
I love the hints of stain on the plating, as well as the suggestions of rust. The two gears on the ground next to each other is a great touch. And the ground, is that supposed to be dry cracked dirt? I love the walls and the pipes coming out of them. I feel like I just stepped into one of the Myst games.
