Coffee Thinker by Nephanor Coffee Thinker by Nephanor
A little something I was messing around with after the idea came to me at work. Just something simple, but that had a lot of possibility in its interpretation. I guess part of it comes from the classic Thinker sculpture, but with a more modern spin on it. Ironically, despite the modern backdrop, the outfit and the cafe she is in are sci-fi set. They work well, however, so I like it!

This is my first attempt with DTG's Jaella, their new figure. I was thinking of using the elf ears, but I rather like it without them.

Thank you, I have tried to create another "coffee shop" one, but I can't get it quite right yet. The mood of the new one never seems quite right.

Wonderfully done, it's a refreshingly different piece compared to what most of the 3D art community makes (or shares).

She looks like she's daydreaming... which is what I would be doing if I could go sit in a cafe right now :)

If I didn't have the convenient dA category strip up at the top, I would sign an affidavit to the effect of "This is a gorgeous photograph."

Seriously. I thought it was a photo to be used as as a ref. The realism of this piece is stunning.

I love your take on the Thinker. I don't drink coffee, but there is something about sitting in a coffee shop that lends itself to thinking and creativity. You have captured this very well in this piece.

I was actually going for the effect that it was a photo, which is why I tried to make everything look modern, despite the fact that some elements of this are sci-fi 3D bits. I just made them less visible to reduce that effect. I know there are places it can be improved, which is why I am still trying to make a new coffee shop pic, different theme this time.

I don't drink coffee either, can't stand the smell, but I actually was trying to go for a modern version of the Thinker, and coffee shops do tend to promote that.

Thanks!

That's funny, I love the smell, it's the taste I don't like. Same with tea.

I look forward to seeingn the next pic!

And for me, I actually like the taste in small doses, as long as I can't smell it. Probably why I like Coffee Crisp bars so much. :D

Great concept. It reminds me of this coffee shop where I used to go before I moved. I sometimes love that quiet time where you just contemplate over a steaming cup of brew. You captured the mood nicely.

Simplicty always works :)
This is a very nice render, it transmit peace, relaxation :)

I would have probably tried some photoshop brushes for the coffe vapor, like that it looks like she is drinking for a lava hot coffe that burst out a geyser :)

I like this, you can get a nice emotive atmosphere with work like this. There are a few little technical issues here and there, but all in all it's a solid concept. Like a photographer capturing a moment in the day of the life of kinda style.
