The “Swimming Pool Blues” Hunt starts today!
When I first heard about the “Swimming Pool Blues” hunt, I was intrigued about the challenge of creating a hunt gift which both fit the color scheme and was worthy of the price of L$5. I’ve been learning how to create mesh models so I used this as another learning experience (I figured out how to bake ambient occlusions, if that means anything to you, and I’ve been going a little AO crazy lately.)
The beautiful photography in the frames comes from Elena Kalis, whom I found on Flickr. Her work is Creative Commons licensed, so I was able to use it in this piece. Her work is dreamy and breathtaking, and I highly encourage you to check out the rest of her photostream.
Anyway, Mauricette Morane has handpicked a select list of 24 participating locations so you should come away with a great collection of gifts from this hunt. Enjoy!
