Phoenix by Jason-C Phoenix by Jason-C
The Phoenix is a magical bird with feathers of every possible colour, and its song is the music of the spheres.  The Phoenix was born in the fires of the big bang, which itself came from the ashes of the previous universe.

TopMod, 3ds max, Vray, Photoshop

Absolutely adore the colour fades on this :) Especially since it's not the first thing to come to mind for fire.. every single shade is a fantastic choice and utterly beautiful. And love the consistency in shapes - sharp blades, circular nature.. you really thought through every bit of this piece, didn't you. There's a wealth of literary-esque analysis coming to mind and I probably couldn't get through it without making this into a giant block of text, haha.

Fuck yeah man! Beautifully done! :highfive:

Your topmod work is brilliant as always, but the use of the nebula as a texture is a stroke of genius. :happycry:

There's a bunch of good tuts for topmod out there, you should google it and find them if you haven't already.  Once you know the basic operations and how they work, you can play around and experiment to find your own technique.  It's like any artform, you gotta know the basics of guitar playing before you can rock out with an improv solo, and you gotta know the basics of english and grammar before you can attempt to write an interesting story.

A lot of 3D people on da hate me because I didn't tell them exactly what buttons to press, and I didn't link them personally to tuts, and they call me an egoist because i try to convey the philosophy behind what i do rather than just the mechanical process- thereby missing the point entirely.  There's tons of people on here who just copy tuts and techniques over and over and never transcend their reliance on others, because their artistic foundation is built on copying rather than true experimentation.  I think it's something people get infected by in the education system, they come to believe that there are right and wrong answers and it's the responsibility of the "teacher" to give them the correct answer that is presumably kept in a little book somewhere, and if someone doesn't give it to them they resent you.  Life ain't like that, you gotta strike out on your own.

So do some tuts, learn how to make the common basic topmod models you see everywhere, then start experimenting with all the options and settings.  Once you get an instinctive feel for the tools, ideas will occur to you, you'll try different things and see things nobody has ever thought of before.  Most people stop after doing a couple of tuts because they can't see how to get from those results to what I do, then they bitch and complain at me for withholding my techniques and complain that topmod is a shitty program or whatever because they are unimaginative fucks.  Don't fall into that trap.

Jason-C: "Greetings Lord Ausrail"

Lord Ausrail: "I've seen more impressive universes"

Jason-C: "I'm really impressed!  You can go back in your box now"

Lord Ausrail: "Have a jolly holiday"

And then everything went totally back to normal forever and ever...  :iconnervouslaughplz:
