This is my first artwork completed using Blender in my workflow. It took me about 14 hours give or take. I sculpted up the birds, leaves, branches, and berries in Zbrush, set the scene up and rendered it in Blender, then did all the detailing in Photoshop. I saw this picture of a bunch of little birds sitting on a branch [link]
and the overwhelming cuteness compelled me to create a piece of artwork despite being miserably sick with the flu. And of course it looks nothing like the original image.
This workflow still has a few kinks that need ironing, the main kink being that I'm still learning Blender and there is much I don't know. But so far, I am liking the addition of Blender to my repertoire. It's not nearly as gnarly as the last time I tried it. Thank the gods those Blendudes at Blender overhauled that awful UI. I still say it could use a little tweaking here and there but I like it and that's saying something because I'm coming from Maya so you KNOW I am spoiled as all hell.
