  • I’m going to be taking a break for the next couple of days, relaxing and re-charging my creative batteries. Both Jessie and myself wish all of you a safe and happy holiday. I’ll be back with some new imagery soon.
  • I just picked up a new plugin for Lightwave called “Ozone 3D”. It’s from the makers of Vue d’Esprit and it allows you to create skies and atmospheric effects (haze and fog) within Lightwave 3D. So what? Just wait. You’ll see…

  • I’m working on one last Christmas pic (spirit hitting me late I guess). It’s isn’t very close to being finished, but I thought I would give you all an early look. It’s (tentatively) called “Snowball”, and it’s in the Picklejar. Click here for the thumbnail or here for the large size (1152 wide) image. Modeled and rendered in Lightwave (which has been collecting dust since I got World Builder). As you can see, I haven’t worked on the background yet…

  • I added two different versions of “The Low Road” to the Pickle Jar. The first image like the one I posted yesterday, except that I removed the dusty haze. This was the version that Jessica said was too dark (see yesterday’s update below). The second image retains the atmospheric effects, but I “chopped down” the trees which had been surrounding the camera. It may be a case where less is more. What do you think?

  • Where is my Christmas spirit? I meant to work on a happy holiday image these past couple days, but somehow that’s just not what came out. Recent security issues have taken their toll on my “good will towards men”. In fact, if it weren’t for Jessica I probably would have produced something much more dark and sinister. You have her to thank for the little dash of color I added to my latest offering: The Low Road. “It’s too dark Ryan,” she said, ” you should have made that at Halloween”. The Low Road is available in the Night Scenery gallery and in the WIP.
