Ascendancer Revisited by Viviphyd Ascendancer Revisited by Viviphyd
Last night I was going through old back-up discs and came across the source file which I had thought was long gone. Well, I decided to rework it and get a print back online. The original image was created July 9th, 2004.

There have been many changes made, including some color adjustments and edge clean-ups.


It's a sword forced into the ground. It depicts a higher power.

how do you make something like that. In Photoshop I can see how you'ld make the balde, and crack in the ground using brushing, maybe a gradient, and pen tool. But how would you make the handle? Pen tool as well? Do you even use PS? the handle looks more like a Cinema 4D product or bryce or some other 3D program

this picture is important to me for a couple of reasons

This was like one of the first fav's i had as a deviant

This image made me download C4D so i could attempt to make similar stuff (in turn has been the reason for all my own creations)

This image made me watch Viv :D


Overall this image is so simple yet so so powerful, I love this pic man. :D

All of my subs have been given to me. :D Totaling exactly one year of my time here. One 6-month, and two 3-months.
Maybe I'll get lucky again and someone will help me out.. :P

Yea I've always found the fractal inside the sword odd. I LOVE the modeling on the sword handle though, that stuff is like epic.

I remember seeing this one!
I like what has been reworked too, like it better than the first time I saw it.
Still love the concept too, it does give the feeling of a higher power, but also kinda makes power seem a little desolate.
Or maybe I'm just looking too much into it xD

None the less, still one of my favourites.
