“Crystals” is the second release of future bass producer Jayboi Adams. This song encapsulates a strong fantasy feeling with powerful, wide-open synthesizers and emotional chords. The atmospheres created by the song heavily influenced the 3D render that became the song’s album art. The original version of Crystals was loved by fans, however, the mixing and mastering of the song didn’t adequately convey the emotional message of the music to new listeners. To leave a better impression, a remaster was created. To communicate a significant change in the quality of the song, new album art was created.

The Design Process
I started this design project by gathering all of the 3D assets that could be useful for making the final render. I usually sketch my ideas before attempting the execution in Blender, however, I knew I wanted this art to be similar to one of my older 3D renders, so I already had a mental starting point. The asset-gathering stage was followed by the blocking out stage, which was then followed by the modeling and texturing stages. After the 3D render was created it was brought into photoshop to add the titles and finishing touches.
