Yesterday I finally plucked up the nerve to post some stuff on CGHub, my favourite site for inspirational artwork. I had been reluctant to post earlier because I wanted to have a body of work that would create a SENSATION. Work that people would gasp at and scramble to save in their inspiration folder, bookmark and send to friends. But what I came to realize is that I'd never do it if that was the bar I set. There would always be something not quite ready and in the meantime I'd be missing out on all that valuable feedback and exposure.
So, I picked out a modest amount of pieces and uploaded them to a gallery. The next morning I was shocked to discover one of those pieces was on the front page as an Editor's Pick. A little splash after all. It meant a lot to me and has encouraged me to get myself out there more.
There were a couple questions regarding process on the piece selected so I put together a little breakdown. It's a pretty sloppy way to go at something like this, but hopefully somewhat interesting. Thanks CGHub!

Trying out a rendering technique I saw on the Art Center blog.
