Obscura by Nickmeister Obscura by Nickmeister
I started this image over a year ago but stopped working on it because i wasnt skilled enough, i eventually came back to it and completed it in time to try and mark a keyframe in "my" style. I wont be working on images like this anymore (unless in a collaboration) so i guess thats what makes it more important to me. I worked too long on this so its a relief to get it submitted, im going on holiday today so the timing couldnt be any better.
stats:
110+ hours total render time
c4d, apophysis, photoshop
i did do a little painting in ps as well

Il be around but wont be submitting stuff for a while! see you later people :bye:

It looks neat dude and you know it =). The part I like best of this is the lower green part, kinda mysterious and such, really speaks to me :).

Neat!

Awesome piece man, and I read in your journal it was in reference to the Gorguts album, is perfect ;)

So why you stopping doing this kind of work? You seemed to get better every piece you submit?

Seriously, the depth is amazing. And it got such a high quality, I can see why it took over 100 hours to render in total.

Pure awesome, wonderfully whispy and glowy. It's sad that you're leaving this style, you're very good at it. Then again, branching out on your skills is always a good thing, so I've no doubt you'll do well in other things. ;P
