    Sometimes less is more ...
    When I first started on this piece, I quickly became enamored with
    3D max's pro materials , and all the neat little objects they let me create .
    unfortunately this left my piece crowded and unfocused .
    As
    bernardoyang
    pointed out it killed my depth of field flattening my work .
    So after all these years of work I still have to remind myself ....

    Came out Beautiful..Luv the way the light leads me on the journy throughout the piece and takes me back to the focal point of interest, which is where I began the journy...Great job...

    michalis thank you, and yes Vermeer is one of my inspirations I'm glad it comes through in the piece.
    As for the chiton she is wearing I use 3d Max's cloth modifier for that .

    it makes the process more like a costume designer than a sculptor the focus is all on where it is pinned
    and how it drapes .
    I really need to practice my drape sculpting . cloth modifiers don't tend to produce the complicated folds
    of most classical pieces .
    (love your work in this regard by the way . )

    as for the knife , I'm saving the blade for when I do Judith

    Wow nice model, theme and rendering! Also nice living location. We used to go to Myrtle Beach a lot when I was a kid. Murrells Inlet is a beautiful place.
