These are the settings in the material editor for the water using Mental Ray for the water, I then I used the smoke render in the displacement layer to create ripples.

Surreal scene

I started by making a cow with long legs, this was because I wanted to make something with long legs but I didn't want to use the regular style dali went for with Lions, Tigers and Elephants. Instead I tried to think of the most bland and boring animal I could and it was a choice between a cow and a sheep.

For this Scene I wanted to combine the sand and sea style Dali used with the Cows I had made. to bread the scene up I added a bit of decking and a pier.

Surreal Moodboard

For this surreal post brief I wanted to look at one of my favorite artists, Dali. The standout points of his work are the beach/ water scenes and the long sticks for legs (and holding up faces). For a while a lot of the work Dali produced was while he was under the influence of acid (LSD), and while painting down the docks he would tend to fixate on the fishing rods and the boat masts and these would become part of his painting.

Self Portrait Mood Board.

I looked at dread related cartoon characters as clearly my hair is the most noticeable part of me.
