Fantastic render Dave, the clouds and the light and the sea, all look excellent.  Top notch.

Yes Mark, I don’t find time for much else…

BTW, in case anyone was wondering how I fared thru the storm, I fared quite well actually. Fortunately I live far enough from the shore that flooding and storm surge was not an issue. Also the storm tracked more north and west then they were projecting a few days ago and while that made things much worse for New Jersey and New York it spared my area from alot of potential damage and the winds weren’t as strong so I never experienced a power loss which was my biggest concern. Of course my prayers go out to the families of the 39 US deaths and the 20 some deaths in the carribean as well as all the folks who are facing terrible damages and property loss north of me in NJ and NY.

@Mark:  Thanks for the advice, I’ll give it a try.

@Dave:  That one looks real good.  With the haze pushed back the one outcropping looks better.

@David:  That image does look like a photograph.  That’s a real nice job.

Over a week I been having fun with multi-replication and trying different ways to create textures. This a one I worked on for a while. I think its maybe setting in that Bryce take a lot of experimental. to “see” how some things work. I watch most of the Tutitorials and some many times.

Well, it would be nice if it could be mistaken for a photograph… but I’m not convinced.  OK, taking a slightly different tack…

Bryce 15 minute scene - using the Spherical Mapper to reduce render time - by David Brinnen

Of particular interest to existing owners of the Spherical Mapper, or those that want to incorporate volume clouds in their TA renders.

Dropping the render time from over six hours to around ten minutes.  Worthy of your interest?

Yeah well artists typically are their own toughest critics. I bet when people started making a fuss about how good the Mona Lisa was Leonardo da Vinci probably said, “What you think this rough draft looks good? Look at her smile, it’s not convincing.” smile

Glad to know you are okay. I live in Manhattan and we got hit pretty hard. Luckily the only service I lost was my internet, I still cannot log in from home so I am popping in from work.

The fact that I was not allowed to close the restaurant made for some pretty interesting and dramatic moments. On Tuesday just after the storm was fully passed we were one of the only places open and we were slaaaaaaaamed. I mean, no time for being nice and certainly no time for anyone’s attitudes. Luckily everyone was in good spirits thankful we all made it through.

Lots of deaths. It never ceases to amaze me how many people are too “wise” to heed the advice of public officials who told them to get out. Every time these big storms happen you have those narcissists who think the storm isn’t a danger to them. They risk the lives of the first responders who are sent to rescue them. A part of me is almost sad Irene was so timid in our area because too many were jaded and stayed home for Sandy. Bad choice, seriously bad.

SilverDali,
I really like that scene, and that special material you made works perfectly. Your work has always caught my eye and this piece is no exception.

Savage,
Glad to have provided some inspiration. I’d say that of the three the first one is my favorite as well. In the revised version it looks quite nice. Gotta love True Ambience.

Horo,
Wow. Thanks for the confident vote. I am never satisfied so hearing your feedback helps quell the obsessive compulsive drive.

David,
I’m going to need an aspirin if these mind bending images keep coming. Curious how the light vignettes around the edges. The fast rendering clouds look great. I think the indoor image of Twisted looks amazing. I am curious about the anisotropic reflection on the water in that landscape. Nice effect.

IceScribe,
Very nice. I agree with the others!

Every time I come here I have to back up one or two pages to catch up.  It won’t be long before Part 3 will have to be made.

Here’s another Jack-o-lantern, fresh off Wings 3D cutting floor.  Thought I put some teeth into this one.

Good to see you are okay as well obviously you’re in the part of Manhattan (I think the news said above 37th Street?) that wasn’t as badly affected, other then the loss of subways and buses as well as that dangling crane at 157.

Yeah I was just thinking about that yesterday as I saw all the images of people needing to be rescued. I blame two things. While places did get torn apart in Katrina there were alot of structures that came thru fairly unscathed until the levee broke and that was a Cat 4. So I suspect alot of those people look at that and think, “Well if house can survive the winds of a cat 4 then my home should be able to handle a Cat 1.” The problem though, and this is the second thing, in places like Louisiana, Florida or anywhere along the Gulf coast, they see lots of hurricanes and as such the structures are typically built to withstand more then homes where hurricanes aren’t frequent. So in a sense if you’re a homeowner in New York or New Jersey comparing your home to homes in Florida or Louisiana that survived Cat 4 Storms, you’re comparing apples to oranges.

There was also one other significant factor, all the barricades designed to block surge/flood waters were done so based on the record surge in the area being 10.5 feet but this storm had a record low pressue never before seen in any East Coast Hurricane strike. That low pressure allowed the storm to carry with it alot more water then any storm before it which led to the old record of 10.5 feet being broken by 3 feet and that’s why the subways were flooded for the first time in history and other areas were flooded as badly as they were. Had the surge remained below the old record the existing provisions would have been fine and many places likely would not have been damaged as bad. I mean you can try to plan for every contingency but how do you plan for the unprescedented? Maybe make the barriers able to handle a 16 foot surge? What then though if thanks to global warming, ten years from now we experience a 20 foot surge? It’s kind of like the old saying about mousetraps and mice. If you build better protection against hurricanes, mother nature will eventually build a better hurricane. We need to learn to recognize that mother nature presents the gravest threat to mankind and with Global warming it’s only going to get worse regardless of what is actually causing global warming.

Not done anything for a while so when I saw a calculator on my desk I couldn’t resist.
I know they don’t have letters on the displays but what the heck, it’s my favorite app.
It’s also green (solar). All done with Bryce 7 Pro and a digital looking font in Elefont.
I also read from left to right and top to bottom. On my real calculator the numbers
start with 1 at the bottom left above the 0 and 9 at top right, which seems a bit strange to me.
