I took quite a few days off while the family was home during winter break. Mainly I wanted to spend as much time as possible with Ian who is now entering his last semester of high school. Now that everyone is back in school, however, I am back to learning how to use Houdini. This time I am using it to create rock formations for use in my VUE scenes. Eventually I will just render something like this in Houdini but I like to mix learning with practice. This particular scene is sort of an experiment and I might create a few similar in the near future. I hope you enjoy it!

"Details of light"
The sunlight, reflections inside, and the snow, it's truly incredible. I had fun over the holidays looking back at the earliest pieces I downloaded, from the early/mid 2000s. SO many changes!

"Most realistic yet"
I can't believe I'm not looking at a real scene from Bryce Canyon or someplace similar. Wonderful!

"Have I been there?"
The reality of this image is hauntingly familiar.

I wish I could give it an 11!

I love how the lighting and color turned out on this image, especially the reflection of the water on the rock wall!

...that the rating numbers only go up to 10! I'd have marked this one higher if I were allowed. Seriously, though, amongst your many long ball hits, this is a standout. To my eye, beautiful in all aspects. One of those that I enjoy just sitting staring at it. Well done! Yeah, this ball was still going uphill as it sailed over the cheap seats! ;)

"Amazing color!"
Oh wow. I am in love with this. The colors are dialed just too vivid to be natural, which makes it feel exotic and magical. My favorite works of yours are like this.

"Idyllic Grotto"
I'm beginning to learn scuba and this immediately brings to mind images of being in a grotto to explore the wonders of the environment where land and sea meet. Wow!
