Did this months ago, I think I spent half the time fiddling with the colours... looking at it now I think they're not quite as cohesive as I would normally do, but in this case the seperate parts of the picture really needed to stand out. I used a similiar technique to 'orchid', and a car wing mirror as a starting image (again). Photoshop only.
I'm just submitting this to draw more attention to the new Depthcore pack which has just been released (nothing from me though). I started this months ago and then my computer broke so I was never able to finish it. I wanted to do a lot more work on the edges and sort out a few of the details and typo but I can't be bothered now the pack has been released. Go look at the new pack because I think it has some great stuff (caustic and skr33ch especially).
Lots of stock photos from [link] and textures from me and my new scanner
A collaboration with , he provided this render: [link] and although I thought it would be easy to add a bit of fancy lighting and typo and produce an accomplished picture, I decided to try some new techniques out in Photoshop and transform it into something different. I had trouble deciding whether to have them shooting up out of the water or diving into it, but I think this worked best in the end. A tutorial for this will appear at some point.
Clockwork from [link]
Texture from [link]
and of course, thanks again to rucish for the render.
Somtimes it's so nice to sit down with Photoshop and just play. I started off with the great render I got from ~ NullVoiD which I used to make Alien and went a bit mad for a bit. Although it was just an experiment in fucked-up-ness I kind of enjoyed it enough to try the style again. However that will have to wait a while, I'll see you guys in the new year :}
The text in the picture made perfect sense at the time by the way... now I can't remember why though.
The first piece of mine from the 14th Depthcore pack, something a bit different and hopefully representative of the feeling of the whole pack. Go check out the 120+ artwork, motion and music submissions... I think it's something a bit special, don't you?
I was a bit bored so I started playing around with the photo of the car I used for my last piece and it became this. I enjoy making these 2d abstracts but never know how to finish them.. ah well. Oh and yes, the *eye* is back :}
Just noticed that because I did it in one sitting and photoshop is still open, I have a few snapshots with earlier versions of the piece. After I finish doing this I will string them together and upload so anyone who is interested can see the rubbish way I put this piece together
*EDIT* Here that guide thingy is: [link]
I think it is more for the curious as it doesn't contain enough info to be a walkthrough or anything :}
Probably my last release for a short while, I'm pleased that I managed to do a picture with a lot of white space at last, rather than relying on vibrant colours. Illustrator and Photoshop used, I spent a boring hour or two tracing around bird photos with the pen tool... I hope I'll be able to use them again some time Even so I used a fair number of sources for the bird pics. I have enjoyed experimenting with this style, but for a while I'm going to try something new.
