My first artwork in the new Avian Wonders gallery here at Dream 9 Studios! This piece was inspired by the macaws of Peru whom gather in flocks of hundreds or more at the banks of the Manu river to collect the clay there. I tried my best to recreate such a scene with 3D art and I think I got pretty damn close. I love birds, especially parrots, and I can hardly wait to do more artworks with them.
For lighting, I used a single area light and an IDL dome. This is almost a raw render with very little postwork. I only enhanced the colors with a couple Photoshop actions and a quick run through a Topaz filter to enhance the contrast. That was it!
