Fermion by Alpha-Element

Well, this is my first critique so please be gentle. Composition: Great. I really love the planet in the foreground. It's like we're pe...


So I've been thinking about the last installment of Quantum. I decided to go back and redo it completely. It's going to take some time to pull off what I'm trying to accomplish. All I can say now is that I'll be ditching Photoshop for the foreseeable future.

Err, well not completely, but I'll only rely on it for edits and what not. The main composition will be crafted in a new way, something which I've been studying all along and allows for a much higher degree of realism compared to using Photoshop alone. I expect this one to take a month if not two months to complete. Well maybe I'm stretching it out too much but you get the point.

I've come to realize the obvious truth that these worlds we create are 3 dimensional in nature. With that in mind, using programs that can create such worlds in 3 dimensions allows for more unprecedented control over every tiny detail. It sounds complicated but I speak the truth. Rather than hide what I'll be using, I'll just list the programs in order of importance:

Autodesk Maya 2015
The Foundry Mari 2.6
Pixologic Zbrush 4R6
Google Earth Pro
USGS The National Map
The Foundry NukeX 8
Adobe Photoshop CS6

Depending on how I look at things, I'll either render it out in Arnold or if I decide to share the scene I'll go with Mental Ray. Anyway, it'll be a nice test of my newly acquired skills and it should be fun. If I pull this off, I can only hope that it'll blow away everything else I've already created.

Just you're average everyday person.....except not.

A bit about myself:I have been into art since I was 10. I always knew how to draw, and my teachers always said I had a knack for it. Music has been another passion for me, as I am an experienced drummer(YES, I AM A MEINL/SONOR FANATIC!!!) and I am a fan of trance. Science Fiction and Anime/Manga have been the driving themes of my art, especially Sci-fi. Right now, I am studying Art at the University of Iowa's School of Art and Art History. I am pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design with some specialization in Animation and later down the road I'll be looking to attend CalArts for their Experimental Animation program as my Master's Degree. I have seen some fantastic work here on DeviantArt and I hope that you will enjoy my works as well!!

My name(well, middle name) up there is actually spelled Jael but it sounds like Ja-El, you know like Kal-El, Zor-El, Jor-El, and H'El.
It is biblical in nature. The book of Judges in the Bible speaks of a woman named Yael or Jael who killed Sisera, the commander of the Canaanite army.

Wow. I feel sort of ashamed that I never responded to you. With midterms at the time, and with finals now, I haven't paid much attention around here. I apologize for not responding. Nothing personal, just me not paying much attention. In any case, I thank you for the birthday greeting and for the llama you gave me. I truly appreciate it!!
