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.
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.
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
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?
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.
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 :}
