The Golden Mount by Raindropmemory The Golden Mount by Raindropmemory

▊TALK:
A few days ago I heard the news about Japan and Korea fighting for the islands (which is their 1,287th times) Then I realize that it's not that bad to born as ordinary people,

If I were born as Prime Minister of some nation, then protect the national tresure is the responsibility of me, and I have to do it even I don't give a damn about some abandon islands in the sea. That's it, the suffering of people with big responsibility...

Back to this illustration, this scene is continue from my previous 'Contemporary Cat' illustration. The place here called 'The Golden Mount' which is the golden stupa with the relic of Buddha inside, and also one of the popular tourist attraction in Bangkok.

and about the islands issues, I have to say if one thing is related to the politics, it will become much complicated than we could know, we just wish a peaceful, harmony world.

Yeees awesome!
Really like the summer feeling in this one. Also really cool scale proportions to a further distant city.

Is the lens distortion post?

Lens distortion is direct from C4D, but the chromatic aberration is from Photoshop 'Lens Correction' menu (Strange, that we don't need perfect rendered image!)

Oh, cool, the distortion looked sort of barrel distorted, that's why I wondered.

Yeah haha, renders are too clean and perfect the way they are : P

Lovely work, the colours are very dreamy! The perspective looks funny though, almost like it's squished.

I think it's supposed to be a fish-eye lens or something.

It does look like a fish-eye lens, it's just a little odd, I think it could have possibly been slightly less fish-eyed.

Unfortunately, the ones who tend to seek power can't seem to share your perspective. They think power can solve every problem, and forget that it breeds problems of its own.

The only true imperialism is that most powerful nation in the world.

I don't want to attack South Korea,i bought many Japanese and South Korean products,i don't boycott it.

do you know that the islands problems were made by USA?

Decades ago,USA gave a chinese island to Japan,USA gave a japanese island to Korea.

However,South Korea betrayed China,Japan,North Korea,

South Korea now became a Western country.

Well, I think it's normal for natural treasure that stay in between the boundary to be the subject of dispute. Here in Thailand also to have dispute with Cambodia over some abandon ancient stone fortress. It's not necessary for certain country to be good or bad because ANY nation will have to protect their right of something. If I were the prime minister, I will sign the agreement to let both country share the owner right and make it tourist attraction, Man!

Well, It can't be help since people tend to want to be the only 'owner' of something they want rather than coexist with other. :) This Dokdo is

If only we think only win-win situation for each other, this world will be a lot more happy. :)

About the situation between the Japan and Korea government, this is really stupid indeed. The current worldwide geopolitical situation is more and more scary since recently... : (

I love your unique style and the 3D effect that makes me feel like I am looking through a window instead of a beautiful artwork. The light, the colors, the enviroment, even the fashion, I love it all!
