My sister has been obsessed with mountains for as long as I can remember. She’s a skiing enthusiast and loves snowy peaks and snowy slopes and just snowy anything. (When she turned 18 and got a pair of skis she kept them in her bed for a few weeks :)))) Anyway, she’s gonna have to share mountains from now on, because I’m obsessed too!!!
My most recent mountain is this one – “Cosmic” (named that because I was listening to Cosmic Love by Florence + The Machine when I named it – my naming process isn’t that complicated haha). I’ve liked the kind of low-poly look for a while, but haven’t really explored it in any 3D-software yet, but you know what, I can make triangles happen in Illustrator too!!
I then added different parts of this image from a while back to every triangle.
It actually all started with this picture for The Crate Challenge on Hitrecord, where I thought the distorted image I used would look cool as a mountain texture, and I just quickly drew up a silhouette. Click here for the resources I used.I then went on to make Comet II.
And then I made this diamond and didn’t like how it looked like just all on its own so I made some mountains to go with it. And I liked them so much I made them into their own picture. If you look closely you can see that I’ve reused the mountains from the diamond one hhehehehehe… :)))))))) Don’t tell anyone. (This is Echoes I btw.)I then used an old distorted image that looked like opals or something and used as a sky in this! “Opalescent”.
Later on I decided I wanted something to go with Echoes I (which was just named Echoes then) and made Echoes II & III. :D
And that’s about it. I think I’ll create a lot more mountains in the future, because they’re so prettyyyyyyyy!!!
