As always from you a great scene. I love the way your characters seem to have such personality. The lighting in this scene does a good job of adding color to these materials. Love it!

Thanks Rashad! I wonder If anyone still remember Italian"De Linea" cartoon series.. That was great stuff - and my inspiration.

hey, great job, the only thing I think could be revised is the texture of the sphere, I think the specularity color should be changed.

Nice attention to detail with the floor pattern, reminds me of M C Escher. Except he would have had intermingled black and white fish. The figures are very well done, remind me of bommerman (in the heads at least). I don't know the cartoon. The IBL give a real sense of form to the white figures particularly and the reflection on the black figure is good. I'm less keen on the sphere, that seems a little alien to the rest of the scene. Maybe something with a more neutral matt material would be better suited? That however, won't stop me granting you full marks.

The floor did also remind me of M.C. Escher at once. The figures are cute. I have no qualms about the complex sphere. I see this as a rather philosophical picture. Two parts of us pushing at opposite directions, particularly when we contemplate complicated things. And the light is excellent. Must give you a 5/5 for this.

Thanks for nice words guys.
Yes, the floor texture is based on M.C. Escher pattern, that I managed to turn into tileable texture - in original Escher pattern though, the flying fishes are shading into the birds.. That's an interesting effect I'm looking after now. As considering the sphere, I think I found solution: TopMod! It's time to make people here remember what this program can do, isn't?
