I just found this in one of Alterren's folders, and it's truly beautiful, and wonderful UF art! Extremely well done, and don't worry about the title--it's great!

Very neat idea,,, love the contrasts.... really sets the marble off as a center piece.

For a first go at the tutorial this yielded excellent results :)

Excellent composition. The marble does not seem gratuitous at all, unlike some other "marbles" I have seen.

I love the lighting and textures!

That gnarl makes a great marble and the background is super! I agree with Ian though that the marble's shadow doesn't look quite right. I think it's because it seems to have straight sides.

Beautifully assembled piece, something very temporal about those 12 main spokes... Perhaps the shadow is a tad strong, seeming to stretch out the sphere a little, yet the light source I can't imagine working dimmer.

I can't get over the amount of feedback you get and all so complimentary and positive and they are so right, I might add). Albert saw your "earth tones" on my desktop. He was so impressed with it. We both agree that you are a very talented lady. Renaissance is equally impressive. You never cease to amaze me, girlfriend
