been lookin at a lot of clouds lately (as I'm sure everyone has) and wondered whether my flat planes were too defined... then looked out the window this evening and tada!... a very impressive formation with a defined edge and even curved walls at one end... nice! now if only I took this a couple of weeks back...

I love your progress, Dave :) I love the tone and color scheme. One more fan! I hope to churn mine out with such elegance. Still a ways to go for me. Great work!

thanks Aaron, appreciate the comments... its a great challenge, imho I think clouds are the most difficult things work with, everything is on such a subtle level. :)

well maybe not the last ha, the dilemma is knowing how far from the concept you can go... in the rules it says if you think something works better then do it, and in the absence of a sup saying 'you have gone too far get back on track!' .... I'm playing with the comp as I'm having difficulty getting my planets to look like they're in the same scene without adding heaps of atmo... maybe a different orientation? hmmmm time ticks away :)

Beautiful work Dave! Great cloud structures! I think the original comp looks better as the light source is higher. With a lower light you would have to paint more casting shadows and the overall surface would look more darken. Great work, conragts! Good luck to you!
