I followed a very good tutorial for the most part, before scrapping what I was doing, and starting again my own way using what I now knew XD
The 3D image was made in 3DS Max using a lot of modifiers on the one object, then rendered it out with an alpha, and used lots of layers and brushes in Photoshop. Deviant Mj00 has a wonderful tutorial explaining the 3D part ^_^
This one came out really good as well! You're getting the hang of these real quickly! I wish I knew how to do those too!
The resulting image in this one gives out a very pleasing look, and the lines/splines in this picture are really well executed as well! Their material blend in nicely with the background, and the overall picture looks really neat too. Nice work!
Seriously, Gen, you've grown to be a very powerful artist by now. I'm glad to see how much you've gotten over the years!
Hey no worries Trust me, you got the talent and the proper motivation to do all sorts of things, so all I'm going to say is to keep going at that especially if you really like it Here's someone rooting for ya!
Glad to know I did I actually ought to thank you as well for many reasons, I just don't know where to start
Argh! It too tall for mah screen! (even with F11) Even with all the action on the right, the complex multi-layer patterns on the left in the background help balance it out, as well as the text. when I look at it, it seems... off. It took me a while to figure out why: 1. The white in the... squiggly dark thing is just pure white. No shading or anything, although this really isn't a problem so much as my personal preference. 2. The picture doesn't seem to have any set light source or light sources. Or does it? Maybe I just don't see them, but light seems to be acting differently on different objects, unnaturally so, and it doesn't seem there's any rule as to what direction light is coming from. It isn't just one light source, and there seem to be many light sources that are simply not defined. At first I though all the white in the background was light sources, but that doesn't seem to work for the entire picture.
And yet it is still at least twenty times better than I could manage. Good job.
Lol I didn't think about the full view XD I can't see it myself even with my 22" monitor!
I'm the first to admit I have a very VERY poor eye for composition and balance, I especially have a weakness with lighting and shadows D= This is apparent in all my art, and I'm not sure why I can't learn it!!
You are correct with the lack of light source too! I believe in the 3D stage I added a random omni light to bring out some edges, but now I see it has left the middle/background area of the 3D very dark. I did like the contrast though XD
With time and practice, I may do a visually appealing fractal. I'll also now think about the light, thanks to you ^_~
ok i have to ask becasue this pic is so freakin awesome, with what did you make it with, which program did you make it with, and if there is one, what tutorial did you use, cause i wouldn't be surprised if this was just from your head
Thank you very much! I made it using 3D Studio Max 9, and Photoshop CS4 for the editing. I DID use a tutorial for the most part, but got to the end and decided it wasn't working XD So I backed up half the steps and went from there myself! I think you'll find a great tutorial in the gallery of ~MJ00 on DA!
