Tribute to Nighthawks
« on: November 12, 2018, 08:46:13 AM »
I have always liked Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, such an evocative piece with layers of meaning. It's not a direct copy (and MANY have copied Nighthawks before me), I've added some elements of my own and removed some of Hoppers.

I had to render twice because of cause the glass can't cast shadows through itself.

I just wish I was better with Poser, the models just never look right :(

Really love this. You nailed Hopper's color palette.

Most impressive! Great neon reflection in the coffee makers, overhead lighting inside the cafe just enough oomph, and 2nd story rooms lighting, say nothing of the lampost. Well done! :)

Agree w the others on nailing the Hopper mood. Just a thought, maybe get a Poser pro from Renderosity to help out with the model's realism
on a couple and study what they do. There are some super Poser artists there as it started as a Poser site originally. I've thought of this myself but I'd need Poser I guess.
something borrowed,
something Blue.
