Plunge by Shinybinary Plunge by Shinybinary
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.



Stocks:

Clockwork from [link]
Texture from [link]
and of course, thanks again to rucish for the render.

Going on brohiem, just wondering if you had put out a tutorial for the water splash yet. If not just wondering if you are going to put one out sooner or later.

I was actually going to do a tutorial for the main shapes rather than the water splash, although it'll be quite a while before I have time... the water effects was mostly brushing with some stock photo use right at the top.

Those creatures seems a lot like Alien and stuff from that insane designer i can´t recall the name...
I like the diving, swimming effect a lot, I love to swim, and it seems they´re going all way until they reach the botton...
But is there a botton anyway?
Congratulations for your great work.!

I think you mean H.R. Giger, and I am a big fan of his work as it happens... I wasn't really thinking of him at all when I made this though, I feel his work definately has a sinister edge whereas this is just neutral.

:icontakouviski:
Takouviski Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2004
Yeah I agree with you, I don´t think this one is sinister, they seem to be strangely calm....
Yes Giger, thanks for recalling, I´m very familiarized with his work, alredy seem a lot of his works,
I think he his kinda apocalyptical, dark [sinister] , porno-erotic, etc...
I admire his works but I think they´re too sinister to hang on my house...
Cheers...
