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 Recollection
›› Posted On: 10.15.12 at 5:15 am ~ ( 2 Comments )
 

The story for Recollection goes something like this… One day I was looking through my wallpapers and realized that many times I liked to use the same form, as in many of my wallpapers share a similar placement of items. Upon noticing this I just on a whim opened up Adobe Photoshop and started messing around, taking fully completed wallpapers and layering them on top of one another with various layer effects to create some sort of merging. I ended up going through three versions of this before I came to what I felt was probably the best. From there I added a little more in the way of enhancing effects and some hue adjustments and ended up with this. This wallpaper is a re-collection of Lifeless + The Depths + Blood Splatters Pink. I have two earlier versions of this I will upload at a later date.

avy The Depths
›› Posted On: 09.24.12 at 1:03 am ~ ( No Comments )
 

The Depths is one of my earlier wallpapers, created about the same time as cybernetic and lifeless. The render was created in Cinema4d and came out of the same rendering set that I used to create Blood Splatters Pink and a couple other submissions, most of the work here however was done in Adobe Photoshop. The render itself has no texturing done to it, it was exported and then I did some heavy brushwork to highlight some of the characteristics I wanted to show. Honestly I just kinda like the way it was balled up, I’m not sure where the name came from, probably because when I started coloring I went with blue. The main feature of this wallpaper I think is probably the tech work, which I still think is some of my best, at the time I was doing a lot of tech work, I felt I was very good at it and wanted to use it as a major part of my wallpapers.

avy Blood Splatters Pink
›› Posted On: 09.16.12 at 8:54 am ~ ( No Comments )
 

I really don’t have a lot of back story to go with this one, even though on DeviantART it’s actually one of my most +fav’d submissions. Pretty much I had this render, which I did in Cinema4D, it’s from a set I did which I used for a lot of my wallpapers of this period. I really liked how it flowed and I didn’t want to put any kind of texture on it or do any heavy brushing to it. I decided a splatter backing it would work (something I had experimented with before on an earlier wallpaper and liked) but didn’t want to do something dark so I played around with the colors for awhile and decided on pink. After that I threw in a motion blur behind that and a nice glossy finish on top of everything. It’s really a pretty simple wallpaper,. not much involved with it at all but I guess it captures my favoritism of minimalism.

avy Apocalyptica
›› Posted On: 07.09.12 at 6:45 pm ~ ( No Comments )
 

This is an interesting addition to my portfolio. Prior to making this wallpaper in I believe early 2007 I had mainly focused on abstract artwork and layouts. Up to this point I had really not ventured out of those two areas but I decided after seeing a lot of this style artwork to try it myself. Now that being said, Apocalyptica is not the first space scene I did. Before going large scale with a wallpaper I had first completed two smaller trials to see if I could in fact get the textures and style right. Sadly this was kinda a short lived period, after this wallpaper I actually never did any more space scenes, I soon found myself interested in vectors and took my focus there for awhile. If I ever get back into doing digital art, I think this genre is one that I will want to revisit and see if I can do something a big more grandiose.

avy Lifeless
›› Posted On: 07.06.12 at 8:45 pm ~ ( No Comments )
 

Lifeless is a pretty significant wallpaper to me, it was the first really serious piece of artwork I ever did. Not to say it was my first wallpaper as I had been dabbling in the medium for awhile before Lifeless but up until that point I was really just learning the ropes. As a statement though Lifeless also means a lot to me personally, as it represents a pretty tough period in my life and was a major help getting though it. Lifeless was created completely in photoshop, and still to this day probably is the wallpaper I spent the most time working on, 10s of hours went into the brushwork (probably because at the time I didn’t really know what I was doing and there was a lot of trial and error) and I think it shows!

avy Dream of Change
›› Posted On: 07.06.12 at 1:46 am ~ ( No Comments )
 

This is an old one, I think I originally created this wallpaper in 2005 and if I remember correctly it was for a GFX Battle which I won, on create I believe. Dream of Change as I called it was meant to reflect my vision of a neuron firing off during a dream, but clearly there is more to it than just that core concept. The render was created in 3D Studio Max 7, and honestly is pretty poor but I liked the shape of it. It had no texture to it and all the post work was done in Photoshop, displaying some of my early brushwork. I’m still pretty fond of this one, it takes me back, though clearly I was just starting out doing bigger pieces like this one.
