  • Thanks to everyone for being patient while I got my latest render sorted out. It’s finally done rendering and I’ve posted it up on the New Images page. There are a couple of rendering errors that I will be cleaning up in the next day or so, but I felt it was “finished enough” to post tonight. Please judge it on the “big picture” as I will be replacing this render with a cleaned up version shortly.

    It’s called “The Promise of Spring” . I’ll leave its inspiration up to you.

    Was it worth a nearly monthlong wait? Only you can decide. I made some mistakes which made it take longer than it should have. I know now that soft shadows + volumetric lighting = ridiculous render times when using Vue d’Esprit, so I will endeavor to find a different solution in the future. Beyond that, I hope that you enjoy it and it serves to remind you that winter cannot last forever.
