Envy 3D Text Wallpaper by thekellz Envy 3D Text Wallpaper by thekellz
Envy

"Oh, how I envy the butterfly!

The beginning of its life: simple; a mere egg of motivation incased in a protective shell.

Adolescence brings the once tiny larvae to work arduously towards adulthood,
growing strong to build the shield no longer provided by youth.

After a time, he emerges into the world with crumpled wings, unsteady and unsure.
But as he takes first flight, we know he will not fall. He flies with dignity and grace,
showing the beauty in his wings to the rest of the world.

Oh, how I envy him."

SOOOO AWESOME!!!!

Looks a lot like Skulls' Butterfly wallpaper. I see where you got your inspiration.

Probably your best wallpaper to date. I love you. (haha)

Thank you so much, hun! I got my inspiration a lot from Skulls, but most inspired by this piece, which was one of the very first pieces I looked at when I joined this site: [link]

Its no where near as good, but I'm happy with it as my first try.

Thanks again for all the support! :hug: <3

Yeah I totally see how you emulated the reflection of the text as in that piece. One of the things that I like about your work is that there's always something new to see everytime you look at it. I didn't even notice that detail until I looked at that other piece and back at yours.

And you're very welcome, kellz.

Did you do the text in Photoshop as well? Or was that done in something like C4D or 3DSMax?

Loving the colors on this [Though it's just a bit bright for my tastes. I prefer the darker ';papers.]

Hello there!

I made the text in photoshop, I don't have any 3d programs or rendering software at all. The text itself took about 3 hours. This is the first time I've made such detailed 3d text piece, with more proper shading and highlights.

Other pieces I've done, like [link] and [link] were made using just a bevel, and poor way to make 3d text.

For such a great comment, I'd be willing to adjust the colors for you, if you'd like. Let me know, and thanks!
