Welcome in the southeast of France.

This region called Provence is popular in France and has inspired many painters (Van Gogh, Cezanne, Renoir), thanks to its lifestyle.
Time goes by peacefully without stress, rocked by the cicada song and the sweetness of the air.
This part of France looks like a little in the Tuscany, the sun is present almost all year long, and the rain is rare.
Every 3D designer modelise one day their own house. Beyond my own house, I tried to model the spirit of Provence.
Here the ground is difficult, because it is rarely flat, and generally situated on the highly-rated of the hill. The rare rains do not authorize a plentiful bloom.
We have to content ourselves with the local vegetation as the lavender, the thyme, and our hundred-years-old olive trees.
To hope to have a beautiful and very fat lawn is a soft fast forgotten dream after a few years of drought.
The roofs of our houses have a gentle slope, because it snows almost never. On the other hand tiles have to supproter of strong temperature variations between winters (10 °)
and the summer +( 30°c )
They are made with terra-cotta, their shape are very rounded off and are thick enough. Their multicolored colors give to our roofs a original style as if sun flames would run on tiles.
How will you spend the winter ?

How are we going to face the winter? Are we going to tremble because of the cold ? Of the economic crisis ? Of the war? Of the famine?
Meanwhile, the other creatures get ready for a long sleep, without forgetting previously to thank Mother Nature for her generosity.
All 3D artists dream to modelize a sex symbol...

I'v do it... :)

I dive in apnea since the age of 7 years.
I was used to going hunting in a creek called " Le cap Rousset " in the municipality of Carry-le-Rouet (South-east of France).
Fish were tiny, and the sea bed very poor, I returned often empty-handed..
Then, in the 90s, the municipality of Carry-Le-Rouet, decides to forbid fishing and hunting, and even the passage of boats, along the coast of Cap-Rousset, to bound a protected zone.
(Coris Julis female)
I decide then to abandon the harpoon fishing, and many years later, I learn about the practice of the mountain bike.
Very quickly, I notice that my breath is too short, to be able to distinguish me in competition. Several competitors advise me the snorkelling to increase my lung capacity.
here i am , 10 years later, on the same creek, but without harpoon this time. Once under the water, I notice that the life returned. Mediterranean fishes of any species, and size more than respectable live, in a palette of incredible colors
I try then to take photo. I use a small digital camera, placed in a plastic bag wich guaranteed a "waterproofness" of 5 metres.
Thanks to this small equipment, me managed to make some rather beautiful photos, but the low quality of the camera does not allow me to exceed the size of 1600 x 1200.
That is why you will not see all the following photos in the list to be sold .

( Mediterranean scorpion fish)
With this little reliable system I flooded 3 cameras. Thanks to the sale of my 3D models I was able to buy a tight device up to 40 meters and of a sharply better quality, here is the result above, with this superb specimen of "Thalassoma Pavo"
Question for photo sellers (and for the T3DS team)
Posted on Thursday, July 07, 2011 by supercigale
For sometime, I hesitate to sell my photos. I wonder if it is really interesting, and if photos are sold as well as the 3D models.
I am fascinated by scuba diving and I am lucky to live in meadows of a marine reserve. I have a rather correct photographic equipment what allows me to take nice pictures.
What do you advise me? I have to take time to publish my photo?
(this is an example of photo taken this week.)
Thank you for your help
