Digital Blasphemy | 3D Wallpaper

Posted on March 3, 2000

  • My copy of Lightwave 6 arrived on Friday. I’ve installed it but have purposely kept myself from digging in too deep until I’ve taken care of some unfinished business. Of course, I’ve been waiting for months to get my hands on this new version, so I guess a little while longer won’t hurt.
  • Part of my unfinished business involves writing some code. However, before I put on my programmer’s hat I wanted to post at least one more wallpaper. There are three new images for you to check out today. The first two are “atmospheric” variations on “The Red Planet“. The third image is a my first crack at using World Builder to create surf. I call it “Sub-Tropic“. I may have one or two more renders of this one to show you later…

    Hope you like!

  • A few new items today. I’ve posted the early renders of “Frozen” (in which the moon is not so frozen). These can be found here along with “The Brink“. “The Brink” is kind of an oddball image in that I like the earlier (non-atmospheric) renders better. Jessie really liked this version though, and demanded that I post it. Yes’m!

    I’ve also added “The Red Planet” to the gallery. I just started working on this one yesterday afternoon so you can probably expect to see one or two “developments” in the future. I’d love to hear your ideas on the subject, so don’t hesitate to drop me a line.

  • I was using Alta Vista this morning (waiting for “Red Planet” to finish rendering) and on a lark I decided to type in “Digital Blasphemy” into the box. Here is a screenshot of what I got back. (click here to see for yourself) Note the “related searches” links, which I assume are there because they are popular. I guess it’s better than no one wanting to see your work, right?

  • “Frozen” is new today in the Pickle Jar and on the New Images page. This is my first “space scene” developed 100% inside Lightwave. There are lots of things which could go in the foreground of this image, and I’ll be thinking hard about that, but for now I think it makes a nice background all by itself. Simple.

  • Good news and bad news this morning. First the bad news: no 2000 gallery yet. My addition of the Picklejar has made things a little more complicated then simply extending the galleries that are already present. I assure you that it is a priority.

    Now the good news. I just posted 2 new images, and a few different renders of some older works.

    The Gardener” is the first of the new works. My point here was to experiment more with Deep Paint 3D and try out “interior design” using World Builder. There are two “alternate” versions available in the Pickle Jar.

    Also new is “Ripples“, another “learning exercise” using the same software which created the Ocean for “Two Ships”. The true power of the software can better be seen in this short animation (ripples.avi [an error occurred while processing this directive] download).

    I’ve also posted a couple of earlier renders of “the Sentinels” and a couple of extra renders from “the ships“.
