Song of the Sky
My first stab at using a pre-rendered background in World Builder. The aurora and stars were rendered in Lightwave first.

I created this piece from the memory of an occasion I had driving in northern Michigan during the mid-90s. It was the first time I had ever seen the Aurora and, due to our relatively southern latitude, the famous "ribbons" were below the horizon. The sky looked like a shimmering curtain beaming up from the horizon and I was transfixed. I've tried to approximate that effect with this render.

"Childhood Memories"
This image has been my favourite desktop wallpaper image since I first saw it in 2001. Minus the water and the Aurora; it reminds me of looking out my bedroom window as a child on a winter night and seeing starts through the trees with snow covered ground.

Thank you!

Probably my most famous piece. I initially created the mushrooms using Inspire3D (an introductory version of Lightwave) and did a render using Bryce. When I purchased Lightwave 6 I did a second render using only Lightwave and this is the result. It was really just meant to be an exercise in using gradients to control luminosity and transparency ending up becoming an icon. Funny world!
