Ronin: Created 3/22/98. I had purchased a copy of Ray Dream Studio 5 in the winter of ’97, but I hadn’t gotten around to making anything with it until the spring of ’98. The “whale”, “fish”, and “seaweed” were all modeled using the Free Form Modeller in Ray Dream Studio.
The whale is a collection of 5 objects. The body is an elongated tube tapered to a point at one end and flatted at the other, and 4 triangular fins. These objects were then grouped together and I applied the Wave deformer to simulate a swimming motion. The same Wave deformer was applied to the seaweed to simulate currents of water.
The objects were imported into Bryce 3D as DXF files.
