No way! NO WAY!!! Droid!!! What program did you use man! That is just fantastic! Not quite sure what you are trying to acheive, but as an attention grabber, I think it is simple fantastic. Wow. I am simply floored. That's it I need to shut up before I embarass myself. I think it's just great in all honesty.

illustrator for the gfx on the can, lightwave 3d for the can modelling/rendering and photoshop for the manipulation.

just a marketing angle ;-)

i was keen to get some thoughts on the colouring and lighting, have i gone too far with the blurring etc. i look at it i like it, i look at it i dont. don't know what to make of it ;-)

LOL I understand the dilemma :D. While I was inspecting It I was considering if It was blurred too much. But when you think about, It softens it up a bit especially with the bright colors, I don't think you want the edges too sharp. If you mess around with it too much more I think it will get messed up. It's at the point that MAYBE a little less and it would still be ok, any more and you've ruined it. my advice? Quit while your ahead LOL :lol:

Dear Lord you scare me sometimes Droid!! That looks just as good!! I would out some designs or labels on the cans though. Otherwise the image isn't exciting enough. Sounds like you have all that in the works though. Looking forward to the finish!! :D

thanx guys, like darkermoon said it will have labels which i am going to animate on the side as well as animating the cans. if i can get it out of my mind and onto the screen it should look pretty cool. nothing too over the top ;-) im also liking the aluminium look so i might have a bit more of that showing through the design as well.

also workin on a mini fridge idea for the hosting side of things.

will put on updates as i go for those interested.

*jaw drops* dude, you're going to be world famous. I hardly even know why I bother messing with this stuff when I see something that amazing but then, the other half of me want to keep trying and maybe someday I'll be half as good as that.
