Digital Blasphemy | 3D Wallpaper

  • It’s 3:00 am and I’m sitting here working on a new picture when all of a sudden everything starts moving around. My first Earthquake; pretty freaky for this son of an Illinois corn farmer.

  • I sat down last night (this morning actually) to make another Halloween wallpaper, but what I came up with has nothing at all to do with Halloween. Sorry. It’s still kind of scary though (to me anyway). The image is called “F=MA” (as in Newton’s Law of Force) and you can check it out in the Planetscapes gallery and the WIP.

  • I hope everyone is getting into the Halloween Spirit. I’m planning on posting a few Halloween pics in my free gallery probably next week. I did this last year and I’d like to continue to tradition. The gallery will stay up until Nov 1st and will contain all (or most) of the images from last year’s gallery, plus a few new ones (depending on how many I decide to make).
    Last week I asked if you had any suggestions for what kinds of Halloween pics you would like to see. The emails came flying in with all kinds of creepy ideas, but the one sounded particularly appealing to me. That image, my rendition of a certain decapitated equestrian, is now available in my Posers Gallery and the WIP. It’s called “Midnight Trooper” (from a line in the original story). Hope you like it! More to come.
  • I’ve added 1600 x 1200 versions of “El Dios del Fuego” (much requested), “Huntress“, and “Valley of the Sun“.
  • Added the latest member’s additions (everything from after “Catch of the Day” to “Midnight Trooper”) to the DB1999 screen saver. and all the zipfiles are now up to date with the latest imagery.

  • As I mentioned yesterday, you now have the option to extend your membership for one year or one month. Your expiration date will be extended from the original time you were set to expire, not from today’s date, so you still get all the time you originally paid for. The maximum subscription length is capped at 2 years, so if you were extend your membership to 2 years today, you wouldn’t be able to extend it further until one year had passed.

    The cost to extend your membership for one year is $20, %20 off the non-member rate. If you’re on a budget or you have an extremely hazardous job you can can extend your membership by just one month (31 days) for only $10 ($2, or 16%, off the non-member rate).

    Click here to access the order form. It will show you how much time you have left currently and how much you would have if you applied an extension. You will need to renter your username and password to access the form.

  • Now I think I’m going to work on some halloween pics. Do you guys have any requests?

  • If you’ve visited my free site, you’ll no doubt notice that I’m redirecting traffic to this server instead of the copy of the member’s gallery at All new accounts are now created on this machine first, and the changes are instantly mirrored on the other server (which you may still browse for the time being). All credit card transactions will now be handled on my new secure server, and will no longer go through Ibill. Besides the fact that I can now make the signup process appear more seamless with the rest of my site (and hopefully more user friendly), this arrangement also means I will make an extra $3 on every new membership (from a processing fee that used to go to Ibill).
    The coolness doesn’t stop there. My secure server will have a password protected directory just for DB Members and there you will find a form which will allow you to add a year to your membership (but only if you already have less than a year remaining). This “extra year” will be at a discounted rate, because I want to pass on my savings to you. What kind of discount would you like to see? Drop me a line and share your thoughts.
  • The comments on the new dedicated server login page have been rather positve, so I guess it stays. I’ve rendered a desktop sized version which you can use if you are so inclined. It’s called (appropriately, I guess) “Login” and it’s available in the Interiors gallery and the WIP. Is your login not working on the dedicated machine? Click here.
