Island in the Void (2014)

Island in the Void” is new in the Members Gallery this morning. The title refers back to this piece from 2001.

I started playing around with this model on Asfaloth while waiting for “Cronus Rising” to render on Bucephalus. My goal was to create a believable galaxy in Lightwave using the new instancing tools (and no Hypervoxels).

This one rendered in around 90 minutes at 4800 x 3000 with 24 anti-aliasing passes. That certainly beats the 24 hours that a similar Hypervoxel render would take. I’m still learning all the tricks to the new instancing system so this is just the beginning.

Let me know what you think!


I’ve also added dual and triple-screen versions of “Cronus Rising“.
