Inspired by The Gladiators
One of the many reggae bands I like.

I tried to express my emotions about how looks can be deceiving...
A wolf in sheeps clothing
Never judge a book by its cover
Beauty is only skin deep
Friendly on the outside...
A beautiful mask that hides poison and treachery!

I think its whats inside that counts and I take people as I find them but I am decieved sometimes!

This is an outstanding M3D work, because it recreates in one's imagination a real blooming field with thistles or faded flowers. Therefore unlike other works of this genre it tells a real story.

Besides the elegant shapes I like the way it has been cropped and the good perspective that is given just as the beautiful colouring. The quality of the render is convincing too - exept for some antialiasing that can be found if you look closer.

The decision not to use DOF was an courageous but right decision.

One gains the persuasion that the artist knows what to do with this program!
What do you think?

We all are deceived at times by what we believe to be true (about people, f.i., but not exclusively). We live and learn ;)

Stunning render, great spiky stuff and who knows how soft those spikes feel and how good those flowers smell... You never know;)
