Default First Maya-used 3d abstract piece

This is the first time i used maya 3d in one of my pieces (usually i use 3dsmax to make trendy crystal explosions). Since maya doesn't have a noise filter, I used maya to make the rock formations that i used in the pic below. I just use the nurb sculpting tool to make a blob of some sort and then played around with materials and bump maps to create the rocks. I didn't do the textures in maya, the vast majority was done in photoshop. I used 2 stock images, one of clouds and one of a waterfall to achieve this effect.

nice job. Looks like an underwater eruption of some sort, perhaps on an alien world. Very cool.

Wow, really nice... you truly have photoshop mastered after showing that. Do you have any other pieces that you have made that you would be happy to share? Maybe a website? Great stuff though , cya.
