Traveller (2013)

All the recent news about Comet ISON inspired me to create my own comet, something I haven’t attempted since 2009’s Harbinger. Whereas that comet was completely created using Apophysis, I used a combination of Apophysis and Lightwave’s particle effects this time. The planet is an adapted version of “Roche Limit” (recall I did say I was going to explore the moons of that system…)

Here’s the original “Traveller” from 1998 if you are curious.

I am also proud to announce that I now offer a new payment option for would-be Members. You can now join the Members Gallery, download to your heart’s content, and take up to 30 days to pay when you sign up through Affirm (US only for now). Check the green button on my signup page to start your journey…

Morning Glory
I’ve added my second version of “Morning Glory (2013)” to the Members Gallery this morning. Mostly fine tuning here since the first draft was pretty well received. Maybe one more render to go. Let me know what you think so far!

EDIT: I’ve added the dual and triple-screen versions this morning. Let me know what you think of the new composition!


I have two new interviews available online now. The first is a Q&A I did with the nice folks at AMD Gaming about how I was enjoying my Radeon 7990. The second is a more in-depth profile published this month in “3D Art Direct”. I don’t overlap a whole lot so I hope you will read both. Feel free to share any comments or questions you might have in the comment thread below!
