Digital Blasphemy Mobile: Dødenfell (2011)
Home sign uplogin gallery social site prints help



My first project designed and rendered entirely on my new workstation (Bucephalus). Thanks to all the Members and people who pitched in (over $3000) so I could work on such an insane tower of technology!

After the Chaiten volcano in Patagonia erupted a lot of people sent me pictures of lightning in the ash cloud and asked if I could do something similar. . I received more photos last year after the Eyjafjallajökull eruption. At long last the new version of "Vue d'Esprit" (9.5) adds the ability to limit clouds to a certain area, freeing me to make all sorts of "cloud sculptures".

This one started as a thunderstorm but as I was working on it I was reminded of the volcano and decided to go in that direction.

My son Ian drew me a picture of this scene and suggested that I call it "Death Mountain". I suppose that works too. In the end I decided to call this one "Dødenfell" because it is a Norse(-ish) word meaning "Death Mountain".
