FINALLY. A piece I've been working on for quite a while now, and something I had planned to finish last week... however, it's finally done.
A visual representation of the vitality in water, it's cosmic properties and chemical energy... a kind of psychedelic interpretation of one of the most divine and important elements. A personal association, as I find a particular affinity with water.
This piece is one of the most complicated and large-scale projects I've ever made (initial render was 8K, down sampled to 4K, painted in PS at 4K and then down sampled again to 1920x1440), and was created piece by piece in many different programs (Mandelbulb3D, Autodesk Maya 2015/Bifrost, Photoshop CS6, After Effects CC 2014/Optical Flares etc.). At many points my hardware struggled to keep up to speed. Anyway, I'm quite proud of it as it represents the past few years of learning for me... But overall I'm just glad I've managed to finally put it down. Anyway, that's all I can think of to say at this point... so most importantly, enjoy.
