Inspirations
« on: March 09, 2008, 12:30:42 AM »
Welcome to Inspirations!

I'll be very blunt. There is no region. There is no city. There is no population. There are no names. You will find nothing here except the figments of my imagination made incarnate. You will find, in a word, my inspirations.

Each of postings will have a theme. Some themes will be tightly focused. Others will be broad. Either way, each will consist of a single word.

So, then...


























Your comments are appreciated!

Interesting idea. I like this.

The seccond shot is my favorite. I like how your images are focused on the feel of the scene rather than just the realism.

I like it!  :thumbsup:

It is very good idea to show your inspirations. Nobody is forced to create a storyline, the continous development and such things (although each of them can be very important in the particular MD - but it depends on the author's vision).

Some time ago I told in the discussion on SC4D (I don't remember where) that the main reason I create and make my pictures is to move somebody's imagination.
If something inspired you and you are able to show it and inspire anybody else, you are a man.

Good luck!

Simple, but functional. I like it.

Mulefisk: Thank you. Feel is everything to me - I strive for realism, but the intangible spirit of my work takes precedent above all else.
Simpson: I certainly shall!
bat: Thanks!
Ennedi: The majority of my inspirations come from real-world places and ideas (this next update was inspired by a recent trip to Stanford University, for example), though I will fully confess to being inspired by SC4 content at times. Thanks for the encouragement!
Earth quake: Thank you!
metasmurf: Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. I'm glad you like it!

Well, the critical reception seems to be relatively positive so far. Here's another update for your enjoyment.

























Thanks for reading!

Well, I'm back from vacation. Went to SoCal to look at colleges, had a bunch of fun. I'm surprised there aren't more comments here, but I'll press on...

























Hmm, this is my 100th post. Well, thanks for reading!

Nice idea here Mr Hutt.  It's good to see different ideas. 

Night:  Like the shots, particularly the first one.  The golf course around the housing looks good.  And pics, 7, 8 and 9.  Did you deliberately put the circles together like that?  Pic 7, roundabout with round pond inside in the centre of the picture.  Pic 8, the pink building with the curve around the round fountain in the centre of the picture.  Pic 9, The round plaza with circular fountain in the centre of the picture.  I liked that, alot.  It's kinda it's own mini theme within the night theme - clever :thumbsup:

Learn:  I like the first pic, but can't work out the connection.  Nice campus you've created there.  The last pic is the stand-out for me.  Not seen that before - your own work or a DL?  Also, not sure why you only got one reply - but don't worry MD'ing has it's ups and downs and surprises along the way!

Soar:  Nice.  The airport seems relatively simple, yet very functional.  I know from playing with the airport pieces that what you've created was not simple and probably took a few hours!  But the effort was worth it.  The terminal in pic 3 is very nice.  And the close up in pic 8 is great too.  Your last pic, well I'm not really a PhotoShopped fan, but great view of the city as a whole.

I like what you've done and am intrigued to know what's next.  Guess that means I'll be back ;)

Interesting way to present an MD Hutt!
And the pictures are very good as well, very pleasing to the eye! Although some image manipulation wouldn't hurt! $%Grinno$%

Just a suggestion!

I like the idea of having a theme based MD Mr Hutt.... Will check in now an then to see what you will be bringing here.

There were many new MD's created this month, probably reason why not all new MD's get a lot of reactions right away. But if the quality will stay, you can be sure people will return to view your next updates  :thumbsup:

bigberta: Thanks!
bat: Thanks, 100 posts is kinda small compared to your 4000+, heh.
paroch: On the circles, no comment ;). The first pic on Learn is the campus entrance (it's not obvious). And the last pic on the airport was not photoshopped - I just used the in-game lightning strike to create the effect. Thanks for the thorough critique!
jrhnemo: Thanks!
callbat: Eh, I'm not one for photoshopping. I prefer presenting things in a natural state.
sebes: Well, I strive for quality. Hopefully my next update will raise the bar.

So yeah, I haven't posted in awhile, as you can see. I've been loaded down with all sorts of work in real life, but rest assured, I'm back to normal operating mode from here on out. I apologize for keeping you waiting for so long. That said, time for our next update...

























That's all - thanks for commenting!
