Materia by XelfrepuslaX Materia by XelfrepuslaX
Mostly complete, I might finish it, e.g update the nebula to a higher quality one, but for now enjoy :), please do not rip :).
I painted some of this like the buildings, the nebula, stars and the atmosphere of the planet with a touchpad, which was horrible, but with 800% zoom it was ok :D

Edit* Updated the planet
May update the nebula later.

Boy, quit doing half done work! lol if I were your father I'd say something just like that and go on to rant you to death about how important it is for a man to develop is exceptional artistic skills. Nothing is more jaw dropping to the ladies than an artistic individual that knows damn good quality in their detailed material. And since a lot of people love to throw around that "Fast Paced" nonsense, they don't know what we artists have to go through in order to get work done. Even though I use a program that lets me quickly do what I need to do, I still don't bum rush through it. It takes me at least 3 hours to even finish a damn figure when I want them to look a certain way, and that's because I work extremely hard on making their bodies the way I want them to. Don't even get me started on having more than 8 or more figures in one scene, then trying to get the lighting to look good. Sometimes I have to re-render at least 30 or more times because my shitty program lacks real time rendering. And that's what I hate about it.

Ahaha thanks a bunch :D. I know what you mean, sometimes it just doesn't get right. I think most of the time we want to make work quickly. We have a thought in our heads that we know will look good, only now we have to make it. For me it usually takes about 3 hours too, however most pieces are 6 hours. At the moment I'm making one piece which is REALLY large, and is going to take lots of time to do, this one is PURE photo-manipulation, I got inspiration from a book, so wanted to try recreate that scene rather than a artistic view. However at the moment, I can only photo-manipulate and paint a little because I don't have a tablet haha, so that sucks xd. I CAN draw, but hardly with a mouse lol. Definitely, it does get tough at stages, however getting the lighting right is one of the key stages, I guess you just have to pull through it yet until you get real time rendering.
I know what you mean haha, sometimes I have to redo pretty much my WHOLE piece because it doesn't turn out the way I want it to OR just looks completely bad. lol.

Well, how comfortable would you feel about Photo-Manipulating some of my work? I don't have a whole lot of scenes that you can do that too. But I'm curious to see how well you can do that. That is when you have some free time. I mean its not something that I absolutely need. It's more or less, trying to test where your skills are on Photo Manipulating. Once I do start working and making money outside of what I currently do for money which is based on lousy Commission Pay. I'll be investing some money into finding a few artists with certain skill levels. lol even your writing when you respond to messages is great. Probably better than mine since I rush through replies. When I am actually writing a story, I try my damnest to take my time doing that.

I wouldn't mind if only I had the time. It's my last year of school, so sadly my photoshop activity has dropped significantly, I normally only maybe do one work per few months, which is really slow. At the end of the year I think I'm getting a tablet (Yay finally). But then I'll need to learn to use it as well. There are many artists greater than myself, most definitely (I can link you to some if you want). I respond somewhat well I guess because it takes me about an hour to respond to all my deviantART messages haha xD. When you are writing a story, you can't really rush it because lots of mistakes happen, well that is when I write my stories hah xD.

It's alright, lol you write a lot man. Just like me. I came across your comments and I was thinking "Damn, this guy has a lot to say." lol if only the women I met online weren't lazy and spoke as much as you did we would be getting somewhere! ~laughs~

Yeah haha, sometimes I talk too much I think. Ha I normally like to respond as a "person" to people, unlike some other people who just say.
"thanks", to every single comment. I understand it's hard to say it when you have like 30,000 watches and 1000 comments lol xD. So if I ever get up there, I might have to resort to saying thank you to everyone and telling them how awesome they are lol. Even so, I still like to respond to peoples questions if they ask me them. Unlike some people on here when I ask a question. They respond with "thanks". lol xD. I wish people would talk more sometimes, many people are anti-social nowadays. Noone even says "hi" to people or "how are you?" out of common courtesy on the street anymore. (Well I guess it's no longer "common" courtesy then :().

Hey man, I have a question to ask you. Is it alright if I use some of your work in my rendered material? Don't worry, none of the work I do is commercialized, at least not yet because if it were well I would be more than happy to make sure you got a share of some profits lol. But a lot of the work I post on here is just to give people an insight on the projects I have. I will credit you and your name including the name of your artwork in the rendered pieces. The reason why I ask, is because I really could use some explosive imagery so lets say I want to show off some destruction or whatever and it appears on the TV screen in some way or form in the render..Well I won't spoil it for you. I'll just show it to you if you let me use some of your work sets. If you say no, lol well its not going to hurt our friendship. You're a pretty cool dude.

Sure, I don't mind :). I'm glad you asked, someone actually wants to use my art haha, yay! :D. As of now I'm not painting using a tablet, when I do I hope I can make even better art, and I probably won't mind you using any of those either. I guess you can use any of my art as you wish :D. Think of it like a free image database haha xD.
