Alien Planet

1024x768 Size: 395 KB

Strange plant life grows in an alien landscape. I use color here to give the feeling of not belonging.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Alien Pods

1024x768 Size: 335

An idea for the request "something alien" came to me while experimenting with shapes in Amorphium. Rendered in Bryce for the procedural textures and atmosphere.

Air Ship

1024x768 Size: 126 KB

This one has a lot of hours invested. 48 of which were waiting for it to render. I shouldn't try for so much detail during such a busy time of year.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Air Ship Race

1024x768 Size: 183 KB

I almost added some people to the ships, but it seemed more mysterious leaving open the question of who or what would fly these things.

Ambush

1024x768 Size: 147 KB

This is another one of those images that has been in progress for a couple of years, put aside each time it refused to cooperate.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Arcane

1024x768 Size: 235 KB

Are health potions addictive? I've been playing World of Warcraft online, and as you can see it's influencing my work.

Black Dragon

1024x768 Size: 233

This city is mine.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Castle Approach

1024x768 Size: 266 kb

The castle is made up of Bryce primitives.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


The Catwalk

1024x768 Size: 353 kb

I had to sacrifice some detail on the man pouring the bucket, to show the great distance the catwalks cover. 

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


The Charging

1024x768 Size: 318 kb

I love the hands. The figure does have flesh tones, but the extremely bright bluish white lights washed out all the color.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


The Collapse

1024x768 Size: 270

My conception of a collapsing star.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Crossing The Mist

1024x768 Size: 130

This is made from the temporary file where I assembled the ferry for the Ferryman image. I liked how it looked on it's own so much, I composed a second image.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


The Crow Cage

1024x768 Size: 180 kb

One of my favorites, it sets an ominous mood, with a minimum of scenery.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Dark Side of the Moon

1024x768 Size: 241 KB

The space scenes are the most clicked on in the Sci-Fi gallery, so I will be adding more planetary images. They will probably remain in the sci-fi gallery, as the scaling and positioning of even the most realistic scenes, will still be dictated by composition more than reality.

Death of a Vampire

1024x768 Size: 298 KB

The idea for this one started while walking through a bookstore, and noticing just how many books, of all types, had skulls on the cover. Try counting them yourself next time.

Dragon's Peal

1024x768 Size: 374 kb

The dragon was originally supposed to be flying over a shack on some rolling hills. But this background, I had done earlier, worked so well I had to change my plans.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Dragon closeup

Dragon Close-up

1024x768 Size: 204 kb

A close-up of Dragon Flight. I've had requests for dragon close-ups for a long time now.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Dragon Crystal

1024x768 Size: 298 KB

Can the dragon see the future in the crystal ball, or is it just watching the odd behavior of one of it's treasures?

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768 or 1600x1200


Dragon Flight

Dragon Flight

1024x768 Size: 134 kb

A massive mythical dragon soars above your icons. The void beneath the clouds adds to the illusion of height.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


DragonSlayer

1024x768 Size: 275 KB

He tricked the beast into wedging itself in a tight place, but it still looks like a tough fight.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Dragon Nest

1024x768 Size: 402 kb

The concept was to contrast the attraction of a cute baby v.s. the revile of a nest of bones.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Dragon's Pool

1024x768 Size: 239 KB

I don't know what the glowing liquid is, but the inhabitant doesn't seem to mind.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768 or 1600x1200


Earth Fell

1024x768 Size: 277 KB

A sight that can never be seen in reality.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Earth Rise

1024x768 Size: 239 kb

Is this science "fiction?"  actually yes, the Earth as seen from the moon is much smaller on the lunar horizon.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Eclipse at Strange Beach

1024x768 Size: 194 KB

Normally I don't do images with alternate versions, but I liked both version of this one too much to drop one. A link to the other is on the wallpaper page, above the image.

Enchanted Shrine

1024x768 Size: 242 KB

Long forgotten, but the magic remains.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Encounter

1024x768 Size: 167 kb

I really like how the lighting adds to this image's surreal quality. My sister in law requested this one, and I think it tops the fairy series.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Exodus Stones

Exodus Stones

1024x768 Size: 163 kb

A magical ring of stones, can you think of a better way to travel?

1024x768 Size: 318 KB

Image transmitted back from an exploring rover on an alien planet.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Fairy Pet

1024x768 Size: 222 kb

Tiny fairies, no wonder they are so hard to find in the real world. I tried using a photo of an actual field in the background, although it's such a small area it's almost a texture map.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Far Keep

1024x768 Size: 432 KB

This one refused to finish rendering. I had to render it in pieces, and stitch it together. It's like the owner of this Keep didn't even want me messing with it. The wide version shows more of the maze.

Ferryman

1024x768 Size: 253 kb

Creating this many pillars individually would have been impossibly complex. I instead made a solid block, with a grid of negative cylinders inside, carving out the archways.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Final Hour

1024x768 Size: 141 kb

Inspired by Y2K, I had some problems when an error wiped out 4 hours of work. (I thought it was saving, but it actually wasn't.)

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Fire and Ice

1024x768 Size: 220 KB

a Dragon attack, 3 dragons ambush a larger one. I like this one, I may add more detail to the background and see if it will work as a poster.

Fire Drake

Fortress

Fortress

1024x768 Size: 302 kb

Dramatic lighting on a dark castle. If you look carefully, you can see the lowest level enters the rock on each end.

Four Dragons

1024x768 Size: 350 KB

These four dragons are all actually the same purple dragon rendering with the colors altered in Photoshop. Never underestimate Photoshop. This one works great when tiled!

The Horde

1024x768 Size: 437 KB

This was an image I tried to do years ago, but lacked the computer processing power. It still crashed a couple times, but nothing will stop this mob.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768 or 1600x1200


Garden Path

1024x768 Size: 458 kb

I was planning on a set of fairy images, but I had so much trouble getting the wings similar to what I wanted, I may not do as many as I had originally planned.
The flower is a slightly modified model from Ray Dream Studio.

Garden Wall

1024x768 Size: 423 kb

Infatuation

This one has turned out to be one of the most popular images on the site. Downloaded over 1000 times on it's first day.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


The Interface

1024x768 Size: 303 KB

This one came out a lot better than I had hoped for. I was going to make the face look plastic, but it is much more mesmerizing staring into this face on your desktop.

View at: 640x480 or 800x600 or 1024x768


Kinetics

1024x768 Size: 197 kb

I drew the bump map (planet surface) in Photoshop, and spent too much time trying to get it just right, because only 10% shows up in the final image.

Luminance

1024x768 Size: 177 kb

Pegasus

I wanted to keep this one simple and elegant as the subject.  The clouds resisted remaining simple, but the effect worked just as well.

Pit Stop On Planetoid 9

Quiescence

1024x768 Size: 369 kb

A long forgotten magical place, or is it what happens when no one is around to see water play?  Based on my experiments with drawing water ripples with the terrain editor in Bryce.

Red Moon Ruins

Reef Palace

I tried the hall in red, but it made the ocean outside less noticeable, and if the lights are designed to allow the best view, so should the color choice.

The Sacrifice

I had finished a version of this one a few months ago, but lost half the work in a computer crash. The fun was gone, so it took much longer to re-create.
