The Fountain (draft render)

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I haven't worked on this in a while, but this is a draft render of a scene I'm currently working on, and it more accurately reflects my current skills in 3D art. It's not finished--I may yet change the atmospherics, the lighting, add new objects, change some texture maps, etc. (I know for certain I'm going to change the ground texture map, which I don't really like as it is, and the hedge texture map, because the hedge texture map isn't hi-res enough to hold up to a hi-res print-quality render). Credit for various elements: - Stone female figure is Zygote/Daz3D's Victoria 2 - Stone lion's head comes from the Zygote lion mesh that ships witb Poser 4. - Trees are Bryce procedural trees with default Bryce texturing (these will be custom textured in the final render) - Water cascades, stone basin, stone slab, hedges, and iron gate modeled by me in 3D Studio Max. - All texture maps (ground, hedges, stone basin, stone slab, stone woman, stone lion's head) created by me. There is absolutely no post-work on this scene (I'm uncomfortable doing significant post-work on 3D images--it feels like 'cheating.' If I can't get the look I'm going for with 3D meshes and texture/transparency/bump maps, then I'll simply wait till I have more skill or a better computer and *can* do it purely in 3D :-). (Spring 2003; modeled in Poser 4, 3D Studio Max, and Bryce 5)

Writing Excersize - Dathril

A writing excersize I created a while back, complete with instructions if you'd like to try it yourself, as well as the writing I produced using the excersize. :-)

Lady Greensleeves (Prologue)

This is the prologue to a novel I've had in mind for quite some time now; you can read the basic synopsis of the story here if you like, so you'll actually have some idea where this is going. I'm a notoriously lazy procrastinator, so you may not see any further chapters of this for quite some time--but the chapters I do finish will be posted both here and my my own website as soon as they're done (I'm only planning on posting up to about chapter three or four, though, because if I can actually complete this thing, I'm going to submit it to publishers for possible publication--which obviously means I don't need to be posting the whole thing up for anyone and everyone with a modem to read:-). As a side-note, this story actually had its beginnings in a drawing I did, which can be seen in my Loth gallery here.
