    Thanks SixDs!  I hope the website problems are only temporary.  Mapps has been around such a long time, it would be really weird to see his site disappear.

    Title: Sunset on the Hill

    Every now and then Jared would take his bike and drive to the nearby hills to enjoy the sunset far away from the bustle of the city.

    Fantastic scene.  Great lighting Selias!   Really captures the mood well.

    Thanks for the links to those great bikes!  Wish I had one... it would make my commute more bearable!  wink

    Time for my second entry.

    Invasion

    Well, shoot... there goes the neighborhood!   wink  Nice work!

    Just out of curiosity, how well did Bryce handle all that geometry?   A scene like that would bring Studio to a grinding halt (at least on my computer anyway!).  Is there an instancing feature in Bryce or can it just handle that many polys better than Studio?

    Like I said in my post background (= sky and water) was created with Bryce, everything else is Studio (including rendering). I haven't used Bryce much as I just got it (was too cheap to pass) and it's also very unstable on my machine.

    The news from the Hill: A cold front moved in last night and the temperature is around 8 degrees C right now. The northern lights are dancing in a starry sky over the valley. Not very colourful, but putting on a light show nonetheless.

    Nice!  I love cold, clear nights.  I've never actually seen the northern lights in real life - sounds like quite a treat!

    I've seen them a few times.  Once right in my home city of Fall River, MA.  That was rare.  And it was the type that were a bright red and kind of just glowy.  Saw them once around 1971, while I was visiting Franconia College with a friend, in New Hampshire.  Everyone was partying, and someone ran through the halls yelling, "The Northern Lights, the Northern Lights!"  Everyone went up on the roof, and oooed and ahhhhed.  laugh  Lucky none of us fell off the roof!  laugh

    And here comes my first entry. At first I was going to post an extra render I did for the last month's challenge, in which I was not completely happy in context of last month's theme, but it would have fit nicely for this theme. But I then decided to go on and do a completely new render.

     

    Family Outing

    No story for this render, I'll let the picture to speak for itself. What I can say is that this render was heavily inspired all those family outings and camping trips we used to do, when I was young. While this situation/scene is completely fictional, just looking at this picture I can feel the sun on my skin, I can smell the water in the lake and hot sand on the beach, as well as to feel the hot sand between my toes.

     

    Not counting: Genesis 2 male (x2), Genesis 2 Female (x2), Wildmane Hair, Basic Hair, SallyMae Hair, Toulouse Hair, Persian Beauty Outfit

    13) Beach (used as beach and water base, 3rd item from the top)

    Time for my second entry.

    Invasion

    This cave on the hillside looks interasting. Someone else might be scared of all these "KEEP OUT!" and "DANGER!" signs, but I'm an explorer, ignoring things like them is kinda what I do. After exploring the cave, what feels like hours, I found the exit (or an alternate entrance, depending how you look at it). Exit leads to a cliff and you look down. "What is this? What's going on? MY GOD, IT'S AN (ALIEN) INVASION!" Yes, you stumbled upon an invasion to be started. And all this is happening right under people's noses, hidden by an invisible camouflage forcefield, which luckily, at the moment anyway, didn't cover the cave entrance. Then you remember there is no such ting as luck and realize, those sighs were put there by these invaders to keep people out

    Oh dear.     My host told me a couple of weeks ago 

    I am being forced to migrate across datacenters, this means that there
    will likely be outages for your data off and on for the next few days
    while I transfer the data and reset the domain addresses.

    I will try and contact him and find out if that is still ongoing.

    Archer was used to cover the breasts on the elven female cleric, I used bodysuit only. Lady of the nile (silver texture) has a bit of them exposed so I needed it to cover it, You can see that black part just below neck, it is not that much visible as I scaled all down to fit size of dragons. About the story there is not much to it except that there are two low level adventurers (with some high level magical items), elven female cleric and human wizard exploring the place and black dragon is chasing blue out of his territory (it should be green but :)).

    My 3rd entry. After finishing up both options for my 3rd entry, I decided to go with this one, because I think this turned out better.

    Almost Magical

    When he had bought this cabin middle of nowhere (seriously, you can't find it from any maps), the old man who had owned it, had said that you can see things beyond this cliff, that are almost magical, if you happen to be at right place at the right time. He had expected it to ment some breath taking scenery, but not this. Of course he wouldn't have ever believed, if the old man had told him about this.

    Do you mean the boat (with the ghost shader) in my render, it's the freebie called Black Jack (#7 on my freebie link list).
