    it's not a render [​IMG]

    it's stock manipulation (lots more hard work [​IMG] but has a better finish )

    What do you actually use to do this?
    And if it's a Photoshop, which technics are you using to do it, I mean, I know some of your previous works, and I could recreate it, but I'm not quite sure how would I do this in Photoshop! (I'm using CS2)

    So any kind of advice or guide would be nice [​IMG]

    It's called a C4D. Commonly used in higher-level sigs nowadays.

    [​IMG] yeah, I googled it, and found out, but thanks for that!

    I never saw that before! Quite interesting, but I'll stick with photoshop for now!

    If you're interested, you can find C4Ds at gamerenders.com and planetrenders.net (I think it's .net... not sure)

    As i've already said it isn't a C4D render :/

    @tony - it's a case of heavy stock manipulation and pen tool work, mixed with clone tool and other things! drinking alot of coffee and stayin up all night also.

    it's not really as simple as i;ve made it sound, it's very hard to explain really, taken me 4 years designing pretty much every day to get to this level of design

    No, it doesn't sound simple at all..I've been doing graphic design from year 2000 every now and then! I'm doing it very seriously last 4-5 years! But still, I don't have idea how you did that....Basically, you almost DRAW the whole thing?!

    Very nice work!

    Woah! Its bonecruchingly brilliant so far! The wing part is so mixed well it DAZZLES ME! [​IMG]


    Help crap for others:
    C4Ds are really good for these days of high quality sigs, but they take a LOAD of filesize, so its better if your wearing your sig, go to another forum. [​IMG]


    /ridiculous word of advice

    out curiosity, are you creating a single element on one side and then flipping it over individually or doing one side and just doing a post flip?

    Wow, that seems like a lot of work though, lighting everything manually..wow ive got a lot of respect for you. Do you just not enjoy 3D programs?

    yeah i'm only creating one side and duplicating it and flipping it over, would be very hard to create them separately and have them look the same [​IMG] maybe impossible hehe.

    3D programs are not really for me, i mean when you create an abstract render in one, the outcome is mostly random, there's no skill involved really, i enjoy photoshop more as a progg as you have more control over it
