MOColympics Round 1: Water
Water Drop.
About this creation
This is my first entry for the MOColympics, and hopefully not my last. The category is water.

I decided to do water in it's purest form, no rocks or trees. Just a water drop.







This is the base plate with all the ripples.

I really like how this pic turned out, it looks like it's glowing. :D

The water drop upclose. It kind of looks like a snowball here.

Splash Rebound
one of the pictures I used for reference while making this.


I hope you enjoyed! It was alot of fun to make, although it fell apart numbers of times.
Please rate and comment! :)

Excellent work. Deus is right that no tough techniques are used here, but that's not the point. The point is art!

This creation is not good. Why is it so popular? Everybody knows why they like "this creation" for themselves, but they don't know everyone else too likes what he likes. Since the droplet is not in proportion, the ripples are square and have no gradual shape and there are absolutely no advanced techniques that you can't look up how to make, there can only be "deeper" psychological explanations for it. And nobody will admit it's true.

Annie, Simple ideas can be very effective, as you proved. One thing to think about when you have such an elegant build is getting that one perfect picture. Experiment with different angles and lighting to capture the best possible image to show to your viewers. Less is more. Thank you for sharing your take on the categories. ~Dave
