BEFORE MANKIND by cubicthree BEFORE MANKIND by cubicthree
YOU MUST TURN YOUR MONITOR BRIGHTNESS UP TO 60-65 TO SEE ALL THE DETAIL:

Title: Before Mankind
Name: Joshua A.K.A. CubicThree
Age: 14
Location: Canada
Tools: 3ds max 4 was used to make the planets. The rest (nebulas, stars, lighting, etc.) was made from scratch in Photoshop 5.02
Time: 1 week, about 1 - 1 1/2 hours a day.

I love this piece more than anything else I've made. In fact, it was a lot easier to create anything I've made in the past month. Enjoy

EDIT: I don't think I'll be able to thank each and everyone of you personally, but thanks for all the feedback. I really appreciate it =) (Smile)

This is awesome. What really makes it for me, is the blurred debris in the foreground, it really adds to the realism, almost like it this was actually photographed and the focus was on the blast. Great job, i don't believe you're only 14, what a future you have!

An absolutely brilliant wall, mostly due, I think, to the use of absolutely brilliant colors. It's been inserted into the rotation of wallpapers on my Mac, and added to my faves: +favlove

Awesome work, the colours are really superb. I wish I had 3dsmax.
I can see you put a lot of work in to it.
I don't dig that blurry thing at the front though.
