When working on a 3D animation project while attending Carleton University I created this futuristic spacecraft model. The rocket trail is actually an animated particle effect.

When working on a 3D animation project while attending Carleton University I created this nuclear war style earth model. I started with a sphere and used the sculpt geometry tool to add a bumpy terrain. I used a night time texture of the earth and added city lights in Photoshop. There is some smoke in the third image that I created particle effects and the hydershade editor for the material.

When coming up for ideas for my interactive multimedia portfolio I began testing with making a semi-transparent web layout. I started with something like this.

This looks alright but its when you start testing with different backgrounds and blending modes in Photoshop you can come up with something that looks very simple and professional yet rich and visually enticing; depending on the background you choose. I chose some Photoshop work I created about a year back during my space art phase.

If you really want to get fancy you could create a switchable background control and let the user choose which they want. Even better… bring a layout like this from Photoshop into Flash and use an animated background while still retaining the layer blending modes from Photoshop. I love Adobe CS4!

I call this piece, Negative Trees.

The background was created with Maya (3D software) and the trees graphics are some Photoshop brushes.
