Me, when I'm making bombs in my basement, I make 'em shiny.

Thanks for your comment. ProModeler is used for the bevel and extrudes of the letters and the "THE" sign. The control and variety of bevels available in ProModeler are totally customizable and can be exported directly as a C4D file for further customization. The final "b" starts to give you an idea of the bevel ability, but it's hardly pushing the limits of what the software can achieve in a snap.

Maybe because the name of the font is called "bauhaus" wich is German and mean "building house" ;).

Ok cool. I didn't see that font was bauhaus. I know the bauhaus art era but how does that relate to a bomb.

not to the bomb, but to the house... And what you can destroy with a bomb? -> A house :D

Thanks for taking the time to comment. In some ways I hate giving my interpretation as it may influence someone else. Keep them from positing their own perfectly valid view. If pushed, I guess I could say that the germ of the idea was thinking of fear of domestic terrorism.

You're welcome my friend. Though, i find it too far fetched. The power of typography is that the connection should be right on. Grabbed instantly by the viewer and usually very simple message. Your interpretation is nice no doubt. Good idea, but just thinking that it doesn't get the typo message across.

As I mentioned, I hesitate to add my interpretation lest it crowd out others. The germ of the idea was simply what began the process. Nothing more. And yes, type of all sorts can make things explicit although it can also be used to great effect to obscure and invite interpretation. Sometimes spoon-feeding obviousness can be hackneyed. James Joyce's "Finnegan's Wake," is one of those books where it's certainly all typography, but it is definitely not explicit. The pleasure is the puzzle. And the interpretation. What we see is really how we see. Knowing this, can an artist make something that invites pondering? If you beat the viewer over the head with obvious it may be less interesting. But to say that this is the only way for typography to "be" would pretty much deny the typeset sound poems of dadaism. It's a bit like saying the purpose of painting is to render accurately the visible world, therefore abstraction is invalid.

Now, could it be said that communication has failed because you didn't get exactly what I "meant" to tell you? I suppose so. On the other hand, if my purpose was simply to be provocative, could it be said that my image is successful? Perhaps.

My purpose for illustration is to be provocative enough to get the reader to read the story that it accompanies.

The artwork could have spelled out, "Where's the bomb?" Which I considered. Or, "Oh my god, there could be a bomb anywhere?" or "Think of the destruction a bomb can make, how terrible!" But these are typographical messages I would leave to others to illustrate, as I wouldn't.

Thanks for commenting. The thing about DA is that there should be more back-and-forth. This is what makes this exercise worthwhile.

Hehe. nice elaborate explanation. Im not an expert on 3d typos. But the thing i learn about typos is more or less what i had seen so far from examples around the net.

But revising my opinion i think there are no specific rules in art. So its always good to give your own twist to art.

This looks great, I do think the flame could be a little more realistic but aside from that great work. I also like how you did the reflection on the bomb. :)
