Forgot I had this thread here - been focusing on the feature thread in the commons since I started doing DS and Poser features, but have had a couple of new Bryce features. The thread was originally about a series of Bryce Artist features specifically about raising awareness of Bryce and its capabilities amid a broader 3D community that often pass it over as an inferior product. Since then I’ve put together 3 further features about artists that use Bryce.

You can find the full index of features here

The current feature is a Brycer that needs little introduction,Orbital, also known as Joe Vinton in that other realm. While newer Bryce artists might not know the name they probably know his tutorial, Bryce Master Series: Cloud City here in the DAZ store. The attached image is one his his images called Outer Rim.

The previous feature was of another longtime user of the software, Steve Winter (Lord of Dragons. Steve, like Orbital, does a lot of sci-fi themed stuff, but what really drew me to Steve’s work was his amazingly designed and constructed insectile mecha beasites known as inZects. Most of his work is done with Bryce 4, though he is now working more frequently with Bryce 7.

Other artist features include Horo, David Brinnen, Santosky, Sylverdali, and Michael Frank.

Just a bump to bring this to the top as it sunk straight to the bottom when I had the thread moved from BryceTalk to the Commons.

Doing it now in retrospect.

A very interesting piece and a fine artist, have always found Michael Frank’s work fascinating and pleasing to look at, would he qualify as a Nouveau Neo Dadist smile I wonder, among his influences maybe Max Ernst?
Just love all the organic plants that he does actually give life to inside his renders, very clever to make things appear alive.

Glad you enjoyed the read and the art. MF’s work is engrossing. I spent hours going through all of his stuff posted on deviantArt. I don’t know about linking with the Dadists though.

Feature 04: Horohas just been posted. It is the final in the series. My thanks to all the artists for taking the time to share their thoughts and their art. With a little luck the promotion of some of Bryce’s finest artists will spur a little more attention for the program. It would be a shame for Bryce to go extinct. Let us hope that DAZ 3D are not planning on letting this happen.

I encourage you all to share the artist features on your blogs and social networking sites.

I hope you all have enjoyed reading the interviews and viewing the amazing variety of art produced by these guys.

Thank you Jim for doing those. They might prove to be great promotion for Bryce, perhaps even DAZ 3D gets aware that they have a jewel in their vaults that ought to be revived for the benefit of all. Thank you for all the work you’ve put into this.

That was a nice interview, Jim/Horo.  Thanks for the work.

@ Horo - It is really you guys that deserve the thanks for being so generous with time and resources. Bryce was a program I felt compelled to explore in this way, and it turned out to be a very rewarding experience. I look forward to cracking open the Bryce Mentoring material.

@ Guss Nemo - Thanks, glad you enjoyed the feature smile

Heads up folks!

Fresh off the press we have a fresh artist feature from another fabulous surreal and abstract Bryce artist. A good many Bryce users will know Sylverdali already, but for the outsider, do not miss her beautiful dream fragments.

Full interview and art feature is up at DigiSprawl

We miss Silverdali’s work here in these forums. Her artwork is special, inspiring and technically superb. I’ve just read through the interview and was awed by the works presented of her.

Thank you very much for doing and publishing these interviews. They are good for Bryce. Now all we have to do is make the DAZ 3D top brass look at them.

I figured she must have posted here at some point. I’m glad I decided to do some more features, Sylverdali was definitely one I wanted to run for some time now, so I’m quite happy. She has a fantastic style and technical understanding of Bryce (well at least I assume she does), but she seems to be quite happy to play that part down.

Maybe I’ll send off an email to the powers that be at DAZ and see if I can’t get some sort of response. I’ve just stumbled upon some more great artists I’d like to feature too, so who knows how long this could go on.

Excellent interview Jim, very interesting and also, thanks for the links too!  Bonus for us.  Lots of insights and not too long winded.  Very good.  Thanks for doing these for Bryce, hopefully it will inspire the community to try new and fun things.  Bryce is not just for landscapes.

Thanks David. Glad you enjoyed the feature. Doing these features gave me a much greater understanding of Bryce’s power and potential, and inspired me to at least want to get into the program, though I still have not had the chance. It would be fantastic if others took away the same level of inspiration. It would be great to see more people getting into and staying active with Bryce and the community.

I’m not sure if you see much coming through from the links I post. I’m not certain what people do when they come to my site, but the Genesis 2 review and Luxus guide seem to be the focus of most attention.

We’ll have to do a follow up Q&A soon. I’m sure you’ll have a lot to talk about as you dig further into Octane and 3Delight, not to say there isn’t a lot more Bryce talk. Would be good to have some contrast/comparison.
