These is a project to recreate Botticelli's Venus in a 3D environment. The figures and basic landscape are down, but the God of Wind has brought the Goddess of flowers with him (his lover of course) and she had scattered flowers around her which are not yet drawn. It took quite a time to get the lady running from the right to a shawl for her in an acceptable way.

They were drawn with a public-domain version of Venus first, and then with Victoria4 and Michael4 from Daz3D, in Carrara 8.0 Pro. The cloth simulation was in Poser 2010 Professional. The background landscape was generated from NASA topological data of the Italian coast near Venice. The textures are custom made.
