"My Favorite Winter Wallpaper"
This has been my favorite winter wallpaper ever since it first came out. I like the sense of cold and yet the movement of life. And I always love water in any of these wallpapers because I make my own icons and I have water-related ones like ducks and swans and fish. So I need somewhere to put them. :-)

"Serene"
This is one of your earlier works which haunts me. I return to it often as my desktop. The serenity of the water and clouds contrasts so well with the unfathomable mass of the monolith (of which this seems to be just a small buttress!). It almost appears that the background planet was added after most of the clouds, but that is a minor point which doesn't detract from the composition. "Monolith" remains as one of your most powerful works!

Good Morning Sunshine: Created 1/16/98 (in the dead of an Iowa winter). Most of the images on this site represent me trying to learn some technique with a software program.

I hollowed out the top of the head using a negative boolean sphere, and created two duplicate heads. I made some flat terrains and carefully set the heads atop one of them. The planets are additive bryce spheres set far off in the distance

I used to prefer the abstracts (a few years ago, when I first began seeing walls from this site on friends computers), but with your ever-increasing skills, the realistic scenes have become amazing and my new faves.

It's got that Easter Island or Abu Simbel feel to it... You have a few more like this from the early years, most notably "Regis" ('99) for its monumental face and "Equatorial" (same year) for the equally monumental rocks that are likewise perched on the very edge of a shoreline. I've never lost my fascination with works like this; they always leave me wondering who built them and how long it's been since anyone but me has seen them.

I liked this one right way - it does hint of Ansel Adams b/w photos, one in particular to my mind. I'm looking at it on a mobile phone, which limits things a bit. The artist has been at this for a while; and his skill has grown and grown -- recall that this is from _f o u r t e e n_ years ago.

Dragon's Teeth
The Dragon's Teeth: Created 3/3/99. The lightning in this image was created in 2D using the no-longer available Almathera Filters for Photoshop. I then imported the bitmap onto a flat surface in Bryce 3D enlarged it, and moved it off into the distance. The lightning was enlarged too much, though, because it's a little blurry.

The image is so named because the rock formations came out looking like teeth.

"Multiple Compliments"
Ryan,



While many of your desktop images get compliments from people who stop by my desk at work, "Scorched" has outdone them all. After only two days, I've heard many comments from almost everyone who has passed by. (Looks like the Sahara Desert or Mars, good use of shadow, bright sun seems to be pulsing, etc.)



Is it because some of us in the eastern U.S. are sick of snow and are thus desperate for something warm? Maybe. I personally believe it's a testament to your wonderful use of color, brightness, and detail.



Keep it up!

This tranquil image is a sequel of sorts to Rising. While it is probably the least complex image on my site, it is a popular download.

I have to say, this is this first that I have looked at your pictures this far back in time... and this particular image is amazingly awe inspiring. Definately some room for improvement, especially with the technology of today. I believe that you if you remade this one, the beauty of it would be stunning. I admire your work, keep it up!

Hubble's Doorstep
Hubble's Doorstep: Created 06/8/98. I started with about 10 or 20 different Bryce rocks and duplicated them until I had about 250. Then I used the Randomizer to spread them out (3d Rotate/Size). I rendered the image against a black background and added the stars and the galaxy in Photoshop.

I don't know whether or not you're a Chronicles of Riddick fan, but the one with the lava flow reminds me of the prison planet Crematoria from that movie. Every time I watch that movie, I think how cool it would be to have a wallpaper showing the rising sun, and accompanying lava/fire, from those scenes on Crematoria. Well done, and thank you for sharing.

I totally agree with Terry and Dr. Mobius, but mostly with terry. I only discovered your site last year but I really love the feel that these old pictures give. I enjoy the feel that the new pictures give equally, but it would be nice to see just a few more "retro" images. I also really like it when you put creatures and especially weird looking humans in your art (the posers are my favorite).

"Multiple Compliments"
Ryan,



While many of your desktop images get compliments from people who stop by my desk at work, "Scorched" has outdone them all. After only two days, I've heard many comments from almost everyone who has passed by. (Looks like the Sahara Desert or Mars, good use of shadow, bright sun seems to be pulsing, etc.)



Is it because some of us in the eastern U.S. are sick of snow and are thus desperate for something warm? Maybe. I personally believe it's a testament to your wonderful use of color, brightness, and detail.



Keep it up!

Holding
Holding: Created 8/3/98. The skeleton is from Poser3, textured with "Brushed Pewter" and rendered in Bryce 3D. A little post-production done in photoshop.

A render tip for bryce: The quality of the final image is greatly dependant on how it is rendered. Fast preview will render quickly (a relative term), but will not be high quality even with anti-aliasing turned on (and Fine Art anti-aliasing has no effect in this mode). Turn off fast preview when you are doing your final render.

If you enable Fine Art anti-aliasing, be prepared for a wait. The image above, for example, rendered in under one hour at 1152 x 864 (PII300, 96 MB), with normal anti-aliasing. When I turned on the Fine Art, the render time jumped to 8 hours (I rendered it while I was away at work).

The "green hole" is a boolean combination of a negative cylinder and a volumetric slab. The image was raised up and a green fog added using the sky editor.

Conjunction
Conjunction: Created 10/4/98. My girlfriend recently gave me a book about Egypt and I was so inspired by the cool architecture of the Pharonic times that I created this in homage. The image was created in Bryce 3D with a few poser objects thrown in. In fact there are 4 posers in the image, but the fourth is kind of hard to spot (hint, she's quite far from the camera).

The twin sun trick will seen familiar to those of you who have seen Trinity. I thought it was too cool an effect to only use once

The hieroglyphic writing on the obelisks in not random. See if you can decipher it. Just to make it harder, my heiroglyphics are backwards.

Ronin
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.
