Untricae by reynante Untricae by reynante
:!:Full view please:!:


Ever wonder why it's the image
title? :O_o:

I named it such in accordance to
the idea of doing things as
simple as we can. Tricae is a
word (Latin I think) which means
difficulties, so I decided to
negate this one and came up with it.

As you can see in the image, the
gears have been made in the
simplest manner I can think of, no
textures, no bumps, no surface
objects, just colors and shades.

Hope you got the implication right. =D

and to my brother for the hints.

Sometimes, less is better... Depends on the piece and the composition, what the artist intends and what the viewer sees...

Yes, I agree to that. Just like what Dr. Albert Einstein has said: "Everything should be made as simple as possible but not simpler".

But of course, like you've said, not always. =)
