    What is art? asked the Velveteen Rabbit.

    It is a pretty well done example. On point in an artistic way

    Funny, Mikeómy Art History exam first year in college was one question: What is Art?

    Anyone who attempted to answer it, failed. I thought it was a fair test, I got an A-, by demonstrating that you can describe Art, but you really can't define it.

    Here's two more from what I'll call my Perspective Period.

    I like the last one the best, to me the perspective view makes a more interesting image.

    Never give up. You will never fail, you'll just find a whole lot of ways that don't work.

    Default Ensign Doug

    I was just playing with the look of a magazine ad the other day, trying to capture the essence of a liquor ad.

    I like the splashing water and the goldfish is a nice touch.

    Thanks!

    As I mentioned, it's not what the art says, it's the tone, the way it's laid out that was important to imitate and capture.

    And I hope you never own a goldfish that large! That's a Mangrove Red Snapper I downloaded from this free 3D website The water and bottle are my own sculptures, but I don't have the artistic chops to do a fish yet.
