  • After many long days of rendering and re-rendering, I think my latest image is in good enough shape to share. It’s called “The Watchtower” and it’s now up on the new images page (widescreen also available). As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I’ve been working with Vue 5’s new “Ecosystems” which allow you to render immense forests. There are over 20 billion polygons in this image, and it only took something like 15 hours to render at 2560 x 1600. In contrast, Lightwave chokes on a few million polys. Impressive.

    Anyway, I think I’ve played with this one long enough. I hope you like it.
