bleeding edge by zilla774 bleeding edge by zilla774
its not been for a VERY long time that I have worked on a grey background. Makes a change from my usual oversaturated black backgrounded deskies.

weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! I had so much FUN creating this!!! I'm going through a phase of really wanted to explore exactly what my design skills mean to me and exactly how far I push myself. Creating this image I took the unusal stance (for me) of starting with a plan and working from that as opposed to just letting it happen. Also I wanted something relatively simple so really tried to keep things down to a few layers and only a little 2D to compliment.

This may well be a little more 'old skool' than modern because I went back to some fairly early designs I did a while back. But it works so nicely on my desktop I'm really pleased with the end results.

Mesh produced and rendered in 3D Studio Max, Brushwork in Illustrator and Photoshop. All mixed with a bucket load of giggles.

hey man, I just wanted to let you know that I have made a pencil sketch of your drawing and posted it on DA. I have credited you and linked you on the page, but if there are any probs please do let me know.
The abstract you created was pretty intense and was kinda along the lines of what I was thinking with and just went for it drawing a sketch.

Great work, keep it up! :boogie:

OK, I admit it -- I'm not a big fan of abstract wallpapers. Cretin that I am, I have a hard time telling one from the other.

This one, though, I *love*! The contrasts are striking, the perspective effect is very well done, and I love the controlled use of the 2-D stuff.

Really nice work.

This was well done man!
I am waiting for new grey and red works. Old ones looks like each other and they began to bore me. But the new creation is really good :)

May The Force Be With You!

really a good work! maybe a little more sharpness on the edges and a light contrast correction can give a more "solid" feeling... excellent the light fx
