"An update to 2001's "Winterborn". I wanted this version to be brighter and have a little more "magic". Hope you enjoy it!!"

Sunburst Daisy
"You may have noticed the Da Vinci quote at the top of my Works-In-Progress page which reads "Art is never finished, only abandoned". Here is another render which proves this axiom. I opened up my "Cobalt Daisy" scene file (created using Lightwave 7 back in 2002)in Lightwave 11 with the intention of rendering out the original in separate layers for an upcoming mobile project. When I had finished with that, however, I couldn't resist the temptation to tweak some of my textures. A few hours later this was the result... I posted it on my Facebook Page last night and asked folks what I should do with it. The majority said I should post it in the gallery so here it is. Dedicated to my wife Jessica. October 12, 2012 is our 10 year wedding anniversary and this piece was originally created 10 years ago. Te amo!"

"I'm An Old Fart"
I tend to like black and white photography, expecially artistic (human forms) and scenery (like mountains and streams, but I don't care for this one very much, but that's personal taste.

"This is a project I started on my "Asfaloth" mobile workstation while "Sierra rendered on my main workstation. It is supposed to depict the process of cell- division. Hope you like it!"

I love the colors and detail here. It's so imaginative and just intriguing, like it makes me wonder what's inside. IT's hard to say why. It just really strikes me.

Building Blocks
"For the past 6 months or so the only program that wouldn't crash my MacBook Pro has been Mandelbulber. This is a render I put together while waiting for "Gotham" to finish processing on Bucephalus.

The goal here was to explore "hybrid" fractals which combine up to 6 of the different 3D fractal types."

"Not my favorite"
Looking at this makes me think of two things. From a smaller (thumbnail) version, it looks like a close up of those lava cave monsters that Spock communed with in Star Trek. From the larger version, it reminds me of scabs on skin.

While an interesting experiment, not my favorite by far. Still one never knows when you start these things how they turn out.

And of course, the blue version in the pickle jar is my favorite of these. ;o)

"My "Anemones" wallpaper from 2000 has always been a favorite and folks have asked many times for an update. I haven't decided if I will go for a macro image (the close up above) or pull out to a colony of anemones..."

Synthestructure III
"My first render using objects modeled with "Structure Synth". I roughed out these objects on my laptop while watching my Ian's tennis practice and then imported them into Lightwave 11 for rendering. It's a cool program and I can think of some interesting uses for objects such as these..."

"Synthestructure 1"
I really prefer the color scheme of synthestructure 1 (the dark green and rusty red colors). Just wanted to leave that feedback. I wish there to be a multiscreen of that version :) Either way though, it's awesome.

Dark Fluorescence
"DB is not going dark today, though I do stand with the rest of the Internet in calling for the defeat of SOPA/PIPA. I make my living off of my creative work and I have seen it pirated in just about every way imaginable. Still, I would rather endure that than give the government carte blanche to shut down sites without due process.
Rather than darken my whole site I have turned off my "Fluorescence" mushrooms for the day on my home page. Members can download the wallpaper from the links above.
Wikipedia has a great resource for contacting your elected officials and showing your displeasure with SOPA/PIPA at http:/ /

"So Cool"
This is my favorite in the "Fluorescence" series, and one of my overall DB favorites. It's almost like black leather...

"I own a MacBook Pro which I use for "light work" while my main machines are rendering. I really should have picked up a Windows notebook, because I have all kinds of problems running Vue and Lightwave through Boot Camp. It crashes constantly!
One program that does work is Mandelbulber. I created this fractal while my main machines were busy with "The Gardener" and "Gotham Garden (Winter)". I "finished" it and rendered at 7680 x 4800 on Bucephalus.
The term "Archaea" refers to a group of single-celled organisms similar to bacteria."
