Made this piece for Pack 12 [EVOLUTION] of Depthcore: [link] which I have just joined (go read my journal or site for more info about that ).
A bit rushed to make it in time, I started off with the most pathetically simple 3D render, testament to my non-existant 3D skills, and buggered it hard in Photoshop till it looked like this, my pc almost exploding along the way. This is half-size, there is a full res one on my site for anyone interested :}
I've been a bit busy recently and have had this sitting about on my computer half finished for a week or two now. I made the main part out of 2 brilliant photos from [link] which I had used months ago to make 2 other pieces [Strange and Peculiar]. Anyway I couldn't decide how to finish it at all so I just added loads of random crap on top and hoped it would become so confusing that people would get a headache and not bother criticising it. I like what I started out with though so maybe I will make something else based on it in the future. So yeah, no 3D progs or any of that stuff, viva la 2D, up with photos, down with renders etc etc
I was playing around with a photo of a car earlier, and somehow it mutated into this :/ I've had a few ideas for 'proper' pieces recently, i.e. ones that take more than a couple of hours like this, but have not felt like committing to one yet. Maybe in the next few days... oh and I guess this belongs in photomanipulated, but I'm never really sure what section I'm meant to be submitting to anyway ;}
Something I've had sitting about on my pc for a couple of weeks now and forgot about. I think it's the 4th of so piece to be made from a render by *likuid, taken from the Depthcore battlezone (the other 3 you can go see in the Infinity pack [link]). I wanted to do a slightly illustratrive picture while keeping abstract elements, and this idea jumped out at me as soon as I saw the render.
Started these renders a while ago if you've read my journal you probably understand why this has taken so long. I wanted to do something like this for a long time. An alien planet, dark and powerfull. photoshop & 3dsmax
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.

and of course, thanks again to rucish for the render.
