Rose On The Dancefloor by andidas Rose On The Dancefloor by andidas
For a year i had only a 320x240 rendered preview of this image but never came round to make it "big". Until this summer and infact i think i made a few mistakes with the rendering settings; over a period of three weeks i rendered about a centimeter of image a day (1950x1400px), a very frustrating task i swear. I thought i would never finish this. After i was three quarters through with the render i discovered why things were going so slow...ARGH nevermind. So this image is stitched together from alot of different renders which i hope you can't see. I used the FREE BETA of the Splutterfish Brazil renderer, which might not be available on their site anymore. If you want to know how in general an images like this is made, or how the lighting was setup i made a tutorial about it here for the "Glass On The Dancefloor" image which was made with the same technique.

My Symbol assignment for the English class:

"The only color on this picture is blue - an intense, unreal blue that the sky sometimes wears after a summer rain. It gives the strange feeling that the sky will open, and the Earth will fall into the Universe. There is also a rose. It is not real, but a man made one, a perfect copy of a perfect creation of nature. The rose is made of transparent, clear glass, so shimmers with the color absorbed from the background. The blue rose is a desperate cry for love. The rose itself it is a symbol of love. However, this is a special one, unique and fragile. You might want to pick it up, but you may be afraid to break it. Its coldness forces you back, but its simple beauty makes you stare at it longingly. It is as clear as love is, pure and open. It does not keep the light for itself; it gives it back to the world. Yet, it is unreal."

weirdc00kie Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2006
veeeeeeeery nice. you should sell this to one of those companies that make the super-expensive glass/diamond thingies and get heaps of money for it :D
andidas Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2006
you probably mean Swarovski? Haha, good idea, but not sure they would want to pay for this. Plus, how to make the stones floating?
weirdc00kie Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2006
yeah, those. i just couldn't remember how to spell it heheh :)

My favorite picture above so much art, I do however wish I could purchase a bigger print, but Oh well... Anyways, this image is so incredibly killer, It would be wonderful to see more like this,

I love that the rose is made of water, and it is a non structural object, and rather geared twards nature, beautiful indeed.
andidas Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2006
the size of the print is unfortunately limited by the resolution that i rendered the image in, and since it turned out to be a fairly slow rendering i only went for a desktop sized resolution. Sorry.
