I think you should post some of your fooling around, so we can see for ourselves if it's art.
I think it's all about taking that second look, and also not caring that the shape doesn't really mean anything. Having a rendering engine capable of global illumination lighting is handy too, but I don't think it's 100% necessary.
Again, though, I think you should post some of your tomfoolery. Some of it has got to be good.
No Way! It sucks! Been trying to do an Oganic ship for ages and it just never looks right. If I posted it. Someone might like it and that would throw my Personal Judgment into serious doubt. Then would come self introspection, therapy, which always leads to madness, and finally, I would have to destroy the world in a fit a angst and self renewal......
