hello d akey, my friend.... thank u, its always great to have u around.
let me share another collaboration, same team.... here:
a 3D version of one of my own oil paintings, titled: In the Studio -2. painted on canvas.
its was a really interesting work to carry on. my friend at work, sajid saim did all the modeling and lighting and i myself handled the direction, design and texturing.
ofcourse its very hard to get the charm of an oil painting, but we somehow did achieve a fairly decent result, that we are quite content with. done in Maya - Mentral ray.
hope u all like it too....
