Material Study.1 [Crystal Shards] by SaxonSurokov Material Study.1 [Crystal Shards] by SaxonSurokov
Just tryin' some lighting and textures out. I'm a little disappointed at how cartoony my ice turned out. I think it looks nice but maybe not quite as realistic as I originally intended, I got carried away with the glowy blue mystical shit... But I like it anyways and will just make some more.

Everything was made from scratch.

You don't like the ice one, but I do! It's my favorite one. Although I have to say, all of them are amazing.

You may be right about the ice lookin cartoonish, but it still looks amazing and hey, who doesn't get carried away when painting ;)? The other materials seem pretty realistic, great job!

The piece of uncut quartz is really amazing. It looks so realistic! Even though I don't aspire to make realistic art, I would really love to see a step by step of that one. The glass is really nice too.

This looks really realistic, rather than being cartoon-y. I really love the shading and blending within this picture. Digital art at its finest!

If I could be honest, I thought you merely took a picture. I can't even begin to think how someone could take a paint program and draw something as realistic as this. It takes true talent to be able to achieve such a magnificent structure. I wish I had your skills. :aww:

I love how you drew these. The texturizing looks very true to life and the reflections, which can be a challenge to reproduce, are just perfect!

These are really cool. I'm really curious as to how you made the ice. Can I ask if you used a tutorial, or just winged it. If you just made it on your own, can I then ask how? I'd like to try and replicate it if you'd be okay with that, I've always wanted to draw ice, but never could figure out how.

Honestly I just winged it... I wish I would of retained the method I used to be able to redraw ice quicker and better later.
I made this step by step quickly hopefully it helps a little!
