Fluorescence (Visited by Reddit Aliens) -- Updated 12/08/11On December 2nd I was sitting and waiting for a render to finish which I decided it would be fun to do an “IAMA” (Ask me Anything) on Redditor “poker_face” asked if I could “draw” a Reddit Alien (TM). My answer was “We’ll See”, which was taken to mean no.

As my kids know, “We’ll See” can sometimes mean yes. I had a such a nice visit with the Reddit community that I thought it was the least I could do to try my hand that the iconic Alien.

Most Redditors seemed to know me from my “Fluorescence” mushrooms so I thought it would be fun to combine the two. Especially since my Christmas render is still churning. I roughed this out and rendered it on my third-string workstation using Lightwave 10.

I’ve posted this in my free gallery and my Members gallery. I’ve also submitted to the Reddit here (Upvotes will help the entire community see it)

I’m also making good on all of the requests for a Reddit discount. Redditors can use the coupon code “redditor” to save 25% off all Memberships and Renewals until midnight Sunday.

This one is dedicated specifically to Redditor “Rethread”. As requested: Something “warm and fuzzy” for the Redditors.

Christmas Wallpaper Update: This render is still churning away. The good news is that it will go much faster once the radiosity calculations are completed and I can save this calculation for future re-renders. Soon I hope!
