Absolut Temptation by TeriStearns Absolut Temptation by TeriStearns
Some time ago, Absolut was taking outside submissions for art, and I came up with this idea. 'Course, it took me 4 years to finish it...because I couldn't find the right font to put on the bottle, and the project was forgotten while others came and went. Now I finally finish it and, wouldn't you know, Absolut stopped taking submissions. Not to mention, this would involve a LOT of work before I was truly satisfied with it to submit it. For starters, that snake looks like a piece of green tire tread.

Bottle n' apple modeled in Lightwave. Snake is Poser. Rendered all in Bryce 3D. Post work finished in Photoshop.

I love this picture; and I think the apple belongs. *bows* Kudos to you for figuring out how to use lightwave, it's way over my head.

:giggle: Oh, believe me, nothing about Lightwave came to me intuitively. I read a book on it. And then I got a degree in it. And even then, I've still never had the patience to actually do any animating with it. Sadly, it's the least complicated 3D animation program I've ever looked at, too. Gah... Think I'll stick to pencil and paper~

XD Thanks~

That's the rumor anyway. THEY claim Herclules and Xena were all done with Lightwave. Fortunantly, CG effects have improved since then. X)

Oh, all of 'em. Sam Raimi's production house used it.
