So the task was to create game NFT called Quarts of the Deep. Type Catalyst. Company provided me a sort of moodboard ( link) . Firstly, I decided to make research to dive deeply in this topic . I’ve collected some references using Pinterest, Google, Deviart etc.
After researching I made some options using Illustrator and Photoshop. Trying to use different ways I decided to create some vector and raster pictures mixing some of them with stones.
After that I’ve decided to change direction and started to use old kind 3DsMAx. I created a model of crystal with five cylinders. After that I spent some time to create scene and glass material. It was awesome to play with light and figure outing maps. Also I’ve created a little animation to display how it amazing is. The result were awesome.
The team was very pleased. But not me. They choose tree option pf six. Eventually I decided to dig more. For sure the topic of crystals drove me so much. In particular, that time I was interested AI and spending time play with NFT’s and neural networks. So I created some cool thighs. Here the best of them:
Also I created some vulcano gems crystal . Hope you enjoy.
