simply marvelicious by MyNameIsBrilliant simply marvelicious by MyNameIsBrilliant
mar vel i cious |märvəl i sh əs|
adjective
to describe that which makes one’s tongue tickle and eyeballs smile in sheer delight: what a marvelicious deviant art entry.

Many things in this silly round orb called “Earth” make me happy, most of which may not have been sufficient for a Starbucks cup. So instead, I opted to create a place one could only find in the sunny, serene, blissful hills of that whimsical place commonly known as, “imagination”. This is a place where creativity grows like umbrella trees from picnic blanket plains. A place where straight lines are few and far between. A place where birds sing their colors in a harmonious serenade. A place where elegant bloom lighting illuminates the contours of happiness. A place in which the mountainous peaks of a flavorful expedition hides a horizon of new ideas. A place, that is just . . . simply marvelicious.

Hope you enjoy.

I just LOVE this!!!! Can you tell me what kind of rendering mechanism (fancy words!) you used? Is it Photoshop?

what exactly did you do to give that 3d illusion? It's not 3d, but you achieved it either by using strong highlights and crisp vector shapes overlapping? What program did you use?

I used the graces of photoshop for this piece. As far as the "illusion", I can only imagine it is a combination of contour shading, strong shadowing and dramatic lighting. It's funny you mention that, cause when I do my lighting and shading, well heck, even the whole design, I have this mentality that I'm creating a 3D world on a 2D space. I guess we can thank the intellectually talented prodigies of Pixar for that one.

HOLY MOLY!!!! I wasn't expecting this. Thank you very much. Hopefully I can hit first, but second or third would suffice as well. Although the prizes are pretty incredible, I'd just like to throw such an accomplishment on a graphic design job resume. Regardless, there are some pretty amazing pieces I'm going against, so it'll be very interesting to see the end game of this contest. Keep your toes and fingers crossed!!!! And thanks again.

Here's hoping you mean Simply Marvelicious. But, as I stated up above, there is some seriously awesome competition, so it's anybody's game at this point. At the very least, looks like I can finally afford some Starbucks . . . well, $10 dollars worth anyway.
