Highland Yule (Merry Christmas!)
"I thought it would be fun to add some Christmas lights to my "Highland" scene. Finding the appropriate mix of lighting between the background and foreground turned out to be an interesting challenge. Happy Holidays from Jessie, Ian, Jason, and me!"

"Multiscreen Render"
Yes, I agree with David. I'd like a multiscreen render of this, please. :)

Magi (Merry Christmas!)
"Dedicated to my wife Jessica.

I try to do at least one Christmas wallpaper a year. It's been a tradition since I first started DB. After depicting mostly secular icons for many years I felt inspired this time to explore the Christian aspects of the holiday.

I was at Ian's school "Holiday" concert recently and was disappointed that many of the songs I sang as a child (O' Holy Night, Silent Night, The First Noel, etc) were no where to be found. I'd never heard most of the ones they chose.

I think whether you are a believer or not I think there are a lot of beautiful songs, art, and traditions to be found in the Mass of Christ.

The tale of the Magi always captured my imagination as a child and I hope you enjoy my depiction.

Order Cards!

I love good Christmas art. Whether it's religious or something like a country scene (one dwelling in a forest with a lit tree type scene) they are all great. Keep up the great tradition.

Winter Solstice
"Auroras are a favorite theme of mine. I've always used Lightwave to make them before but I thought it would be interesting to try out Apophysis. This is also my first render using the new Vue d'Esprit 9."

The Turning



'Tis the time

Winter solstice time

Frost in rime

Bells in chime



Rays are long

Sun grows strong

Praise in song

Winter will be gone

Gotham Garden (Autumn)
"The autumn version of my "Gotham Garden" series. Originally I rendered this as a sunset scene but found that the orange sky and the autumn leaves did not contrast enough. "

"One more season..."
I have always loved the Gotham wallapapers, but the 2010 redesigns have become a seasonal staple on my monitor, and when I bought a second monitor it became even better. I love this rendering especially, I think it's the finest of the Gotham series. Now I ask... will there be a WINTER rendering?? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE??! Your work continues to inspire and amaze me!

Wintermoon
"In early 2010 I was asked to create a brighter version of "The Ride" for use as a printed Christmas card. After I removed the sleigh from the image I felt it made a pretty nice standalone "winter" wallpaper, deserving of its own spot in my gallery. "

Tears From Heaven
"Last week I had the good fortune of a clear night to observe the Perseid meteor shower. It was Ian and Jason's first and they had a great time (we had my green laser pointer to play with between meteors). When I was a kid my mom used to wake me and my brother to watch shooting stars. I've been fascinated by the night sky ever since.

This wallpaper is dedicated to that night in 2010 with my boys, the nights to come, and those nights many years ago. I hope you enjoy it!

Gotham Garden (Spring)
"My original "Gotham" was created in 1998 using a single greyscale heightmap. I did an update in 1999. using some simple geometry for the buildings. I did another updated version in 2001 and a second render viewed from an elevated garden.

This latest is my first rendered in Vue d'Esprit."

"All four seasons?"
Might it be time for a Gotham Garden as seen in winter? Hopefully, you could have the scene taken in both day and night.

The Forest Citadel
"This piece started with Vue d'Esprit's atmosphere editor. I put together a great sky and then I worked to create a scene to go with it. First I tried an ocean scene, but later settled on a forest. The volumetric fog in this scene is quite expensive to render, so I am having a hard time producing a multi-screen render. I still run the multi-screen render on my alternate box when I have no other more pressing projects, but it is very slow going."

This is a great wallpaper. Can we get multi-screen versions of it?
