I had just learned how to use the "multi-replicate" feature in Bryce.

Now I remember. They are Virgo symbols and I'm pretty sure I used them because I was born in September.

I love this piece, the contrast of the red skeleton against the light coming into the room and that sword is awesome.

I was attempting here to create landscape textures in Bryce using the texture editor instead of the terrain editor.

I do read the comments. All the time! I don't always get to respond to them though. I remember this was one of my first Bryce pics. Obviously it was before I learned how to increase the resolution in my terrain meshes.

Equinox
Equinoix: Created 10/11/98. Rendered in Bryce 3D, but I made heavy use of Ray Dream Studio 5 in this one, only the rocks, water and sky are native to Bryce.

Can you spot the goldfish?

A revisit would be great. There is something very peaceful and soothing about this picture.

Gazebo
Created: 07/15/98: One of my more complex images. The cystal structure (the gazebo) was modeled in Ray Dream 5, as was the dias, and walkway. The dolphins and the boy at the center (yes, that's what it is), were posed and imported from Poser 3.

This image featured my best planet rings to date.

Inlet
Created 10/20/98 -- I am experimenting here with some of the techniques for making trees outlined in Susan Kitchens' excellent book Real World Bryce 2. If you're into Bryce, I can't recommend it highly enough. Check it out at Amazon.com.

Your earlier nature scenes always remind me of Beyond the Mind's Eye, Seeds of Life. I loved that video as a kid.

"One of my faves"
I'm a sucker for winged folk anyway, but with the metallic being, the perspective and the unusual color scheme, this one has been stuck in my head (and on my hard drive!) for ages... I've gone through four computers since I first downloaded it. Tech may well march on, but a classic is a classic and can never really be 'behind the times'.

"Serene"
This is one of your earlier works which haunts me. I return to it often as my desktop. The serenity of the water and clouds contrasts so well with the unfathomable mass of the monolith (of which this seems to be just a small buttress!). It almost appears that the background planet was added after most of the clouds, but that is a minor point which doesn't detract from the composition. "Monolith" remains as one of your most powerful works!

Good Morning Sunshine
Good Morning Sunshine: Created 1/16/98 (in the dead of an Iowa winter). Most of the images on this site represent me trying to learn some technique with a software program. In this image I was experimenting with the Horizon Illusion effect in Bryce 3D (the sun gets bigger as it moves closer to the horizon).

Nintendo used this style in a certain level of Donkey Kong Country returns. Though they called it sunset rather than sunrise :P

A New Day
A New Day: Created 2/26/98. A simple landscape. The clouds are a sphere with a volumetric texture applied. I think I spent more time on this one moving the sun around than I did placing the objects. Created completely in Bryce3D.

Had a few calming moments looking at your pictures listening to some good music . . . browsing your artistry and enjoying myself immensely. I took the Mushrooms to be my desktop for a while, stunning.

Valley of the Sentinels
Valley of the Sentinels: Created 2/8/98. Using Poser I created a dxf head, which I then imported into Bryce. I hollowed out the top of the head using a negative boolean sphere, and created two duplicate heads. I made some flat terrains and carefully set the heads atop one of them. The planets are additive bryce spheres set far off in the distance

"Abstract vs Realism"
I used to prefer the abstracts (a few years ago, when I first began seeing walls from this site on friends computers), but with your ever-increasing skills, the realistic scenes have become amazing and my new faves. But the best is when you somehow combine the two, e.g., Phraxis, which has been on my TV for over a month now.

"Pentinents?"
This image reminds me of penitentes on glaciers. It would be interesting if rocks were to form that way by being at just the right angle to an extremely close star and melting and/or evaporating at their bases.

After the Storm
After the Storm: Created 07/30/98. Playing around with the Rainbow settings in Bryce 3D. The lightning in this image was rendered first in Photoshop using the Almathera Plugins, and then imported into Bryce. It was touched up again in Photoshop after the render.

This picture is the reason why I have now purchased a lifetime membership, and why (when circumstances allow) I will become a sponsor.
