avy Ultramodern
›› Posted On: 12.15.12 at 6:04 pm ~ ( No Comments )
 

Ultramodern is sort of alone in a sense, at least how it relates to the other work in my portfolio. When I created this wallpaper I was really experimenting with a lot of different styles and a lot of different programs, Ultramodern is the result of one of those experimentation session. This wallpaper was created in Bryce 5, a lesser known and less powerful 3D modeling software. The reason I liked Bryce is because it had some really nice textures and tools to apply said textures. This is basically a bunch of oval rings with glass like textures bunched and then a zoom out in perspective. The result was something that reminding me of the tubes you see in sci-fi movies, so that’s where the name comes from.

avy Nebula of the Twin Giants
›› Posted On: 10.15.12 at 5:04 am ~ ( No Comments )
 

Previously I uploaded probably my most detailed space scene, Apocalyptica, this would be my second most. Nebula of the Twin Giants was the second of three large space scenes I did when I was experimenting with the genre, I feel it is better than the first but not as good as Apocalypica. In terms of the approach it was basically an attempt to make a better planet then what I had done in my first scene, which I feel like I achieved. For the planet (and the moon) I used some photos of gravel/broken up ground to give it a real beat up kind of surface that you would expect from some atmosphereless planets(moons). I was really happy with the outcome of the surfaces though they were nowhere near as detailed as Apocalyptica. The second approach was to continue working on my brushwork so as to make realistic a looking nebula/space dust/etc. I like how the coloring came out, and for the time I was very happy with my brushwork but looking at it now I was a bit heavy handed here, although the detail is there and I still find some aspects of the brushwork good. Nebula of the Twin Giants was created completely in Adobe Photoshop 7.

avy Turpentine Kisses
›› Posted On: 09.29.12 at 9:42 pm ~ ( No Comments )
 

Turpentine Kisses is kind of a intermediate submission for me. When I created it I didn’t spend a lot of time working on it, because the vision itself is pretty simple and is suppose to be. The render was from an older set I had created in Cinema4d, from the same batch as Blood Splatters Pink among others (I used this exact render in two separate wallpapers as well which I will upload later). The name comes from a Smashing Pumpkins demo tape which I’m fond of and sorta shares the same serene mood that I wanted to present here. Aside from the render all the work was done in Adobe Photoshop 7, the little work that there was that is. Mainly I applied several different blurring and smudging techniques along with an adjustment to the levels so that I could get those dark areas. Then there were several layer overlays with different adjustment effects to create the brighter sharper feel. There was also some light brushing on top of all that for a cloud like effect. In the end I’m very fond of this one just because it captures how I was feeling the day I made it, memories and such.

avy Angel Wings
›› Posted On: 09.26.12 at 2:46 am ~ ( 1 Comment )
 

This is a really early submission of mine, at least early in terms of when I started to really form my own style and started experiment with techniques that I would use even to this day. Angel Wings came out of the same time period and development sessions as the wallpaper Lifeless and is pretty much the same exact style, just on a smaller canvas. In fact this was the first thing I did in this style, it would actually lead to me making Lifeless. Angel Wings was created entirely in Photoshop 7, I used a technique where I would use the pen tool to draw out the basic forms I wanted to have then I’d apply varying wave and blur effects to the layers (which I would usually duplicate several times and then vary the opacity of each layer creating an overlaying/flow effect). The brushwork was also a new thing for me here, I had done a good deal of brushing before, but here I finally got the ‘grunge’ feel down.

avy Beauty Inside
›› Posted On: 09.26.12 at 2:38 am ~ ( No Comments )
 

Beauty Inside is kind of a special piece for me, and it’s one that I’ve pulled from and used for different things on several occasions. I think the real showcase here is with the brushwork, up until this point (I had done several wallpapers with heavy brushwork, but I was still learning the ropes and figuring out what my style was going to be) I hadn’t really stuck a brushwork portion of a submission, this was the first one I felt like I really got exactly right, just the way I had envisioned it. I really put in a lot of work on the color palette as well, I wanted this one to really convey it’s point. Beauty Inside would go on to have a wallpaper form (I’ll try to find this and upload it later), It was the basis for the Synthetic Art layout and theme (Again, I’ll find this and upload it later), and finally a edited form ended up becoming a wallpaper I titled sanitarium which is in stark contrast the look and feel of the original design (I’ll upload this one as well). The work was done in Cinema4D and mostly in Adobe Photoshop 7.

avy Jupiter’s Lament
›› Posted On: 07.31.12 at 2:16 am ~ ( No Comments )
 

To anyone that really knows me it should come at no surprise how big of a Smashing Pumpkins fan I actually am. A few years ago I began to become interested in doing vector artwork, right about the same time as I was coming out of being interested in space scenes. I did a few small anime based vectors, stuff that would be easy to kinda learn myself. Once I was pretty confident that I could do a larger composition I decided that I would do a series of Smashing Pumpkins vectors, and although in the end I only ended up completing the one I’m to this day still very happy with it. For those unaware Billy Corgan is the Smashing Pumpkins so it is kinda fitting that I only ended up completing his vector. It was done completely in Photoshop, and is named after one of my favorite acoustic songs from the Aeroplane Flies High box set. Who knows maybe some day I will complete this series, with the new band members instead of the old.

avy BioPUNK
›› Posted On: 07.06.12 at 8:18 pm ~ ( No Comments )
 

BioPUNK is an interesting piece of my portfolio for a few reasons. As of now it stands as one of the last serious art things I’ve done (meaning it’s been awhile since I’ve done anything) and because of the time in which it was made. When I started working on the render in 3D Studio Max I didn’t really know what I was going for, I didn’t have any direction that is. However, like much of my artwork at the time it skewed towards this organic style and coloration at which time I began the brushwork. Before I knew it I realized I was looking at a more organic representation of what my older Dream of Change wallpaper had originally set out to be, and a darker one as well. I still regard it as my best work, and my favorite.
