Tonka Takes a Holiday by freeny Tonka Takes a Holiday by freeny
PRINTS now available on my website- [link] :)
-------
Sometimes you gotta just bust out of your blister pack.

Made with FormZ, Photoshop, Illustrator.

-------

I am absolutely blown away by the positive response to this piece. I did this almost 5 years ago and not much fanfare except for the print that hangs on my sons wall. Thanks to "DobbyKnits" for the shout out.

BTW, Form-Z it a industrial design/engineering 3D program. Allot like Maya, 3D Max etc... but minus the animation capabilities. I dont use it any more since ive moved on to Maya.

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-04-16
The image is so well executed that it could easily be mistaken as a photograph. The individual robots are marvelously unique and fascinating and the slogan emblazoned on their packages is a riot. Make sure to give Tonka Takes a Holiday by ~freeny a fullview ! ( Suggested by DobbyKnits and Featured by nighty )

Something looks not quite natural enough, and I think it's that the toys at the back of the rows aren't dark enough (plus, the robots seem to just float in their cases). Aside from that, it's cute, and very well made. And the slogans on the cards are indeed great!

Hands down, you pwn.
Every now and then you'll come across something so flawless that it's hard to describe any one detail that you thought was amazing. This is one of those somethings. The concept and execution are briliant.

Great job.

In small format I thought this was a photo. Very nice lighting and colouring job.

I like the illustration too. It gets your point across in a comical way.

Maybe the red robot is re-creating that scene from "The Matrix" where Neo finally breaks free of the illusionary life he led, and the prison he's really in.
In a metaphorical way, of course.

I've never heard of FormZ, but I don't think would be that helpful for me, since I'm an animation student. Horray for Maya!

Anyway. I really love this, its cute and nice model work

this goes down as one of my favorite deviations EVER. i really mean that to, i don't say it often. to start, this is perfectly rendered....looks photorealistic, but still has the charm of animation. the lighting is absolutely perfect...the dark gives the shot a sense that the robot is sneaking out while the store was closed. the robots are works of art individually...very creative and definitely unique. the package design also cracked me up. overall, i feel like im watching an entire movie when i look at "tonka takes a holiday". great work!

I love this!

What is FormZ? Is it a 3D modeling program? I just can't wrap my head around how people create such realistic work with Photoshop and Illustrator...I think I need to do some tutorials...

Great work!
