  • “Fluorescence” was created primarily as a modeling experiment. I didn’t know much yet about Lightwave textures and rendering, so I used Bryce to create the final output. People seemed to like it.

    People liked it a lot actually. It’s been downloaded over 1 million times since I posted it about a year ago.

    That being the case, I’m sure some people will see it as sacrilege that I would change it. They needn’t worry though, the “original” is still available and isn’t going anywhere. I thought it would be fun to revisit the image using Lightwave’s considerable texturing/rendering tools.

    You can see the revision on the “New Images” page. I’d love to hear what you think about it. Please keep in mind that it was not my intention to create a carbon copy of the original, I wanted it to look different. That is how I’m presenting it now — as something different. It is not mean’t to replace the original.
