    ...we have several with a running theme of water...

    "Meltdown"


    Who says all dragons are good?
    [​IMG]

    "Brain Surgery On The Fly" in Bryce 5.


    All refraction is done with lighting techniques. Another client of mine reproduced in CG.
    [​IMG]

    "In The Water On The Steps" in Bryce 5.


    I rebuilt this fountain and never got 'before' pictures. Retiled everything and repaired the 'sheer' as well as rebuilt her plumbing so that the fish spray. The client never uses the feature so it isn't working in this photo.
    [​IMG]

    "My Mermaid"


    more surrealism...
    [​IMG]

    "An Eye On The Clock" in Bryce 5


    my friends and I meet for a drink once a week...
    [​IMG]

    "Happy Hour" in Bryce 5.


    A girl I know that I modelled in CG and rendered in V5I.
    [​IMG]

    "Jennifer Mermaid"

    All CG images presented with minimal or no postwork.
    More to come...

    It is also suggested that you walk respectfully amongst the rest of the Superheroes...

    T, these are fabulous. :) Have you done them over time, or have you just been manically busy creating? :p Lovelovelove the superhero theme! You have many of my favorite superheroes there, too.

    Oh, and the mermaid? I truly adore the area behind her, where it is in shadow -- the layered water that reflects, while the sand underneath glows. I really like details like that. They can totally make a piece of art, for me.

    I would rep you for these, but I've been on an obsessive mission, repping everyone in my birthday thread (it takes a long time to get everyone), so all of my rep has been used up on that for almost ten days now. :p

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, fascinating. Remarkable work, tnek. Since you presumably have a multitude of doors, I look forward to seeing more, at your whim.

    Excellent work Tnekkralc1956! The composition, imagery, content... you are an artist sir! This is the best use of Bryce I've ever seen!

    Just curious... did you strictly use Bryce, or did you create the figures in Poser and put them into Bryce?

    ...for the good strokes.

    The CGs with 'human' characters are built in Poser first before they are imported into Bryce or V5I. Three of these were rendered within Poser itself: "Last Laugh", "Suffer...", and "Doc Savage". "Jennifer Mermaid" is done in V5I. And the texturing is usually done while I'm still in Poser with Photoshop open on the side so that I can 'skin' the geometry as I go along to tweek it.

    The hand made paintings and such I'll be showing in this gallery are relatively older. I've been doing the CG stuff for about five years and these are cumulative from this time, mostly from the last two years. My most recent work is in the FA gallery. I can generally turn out about one sometimes two CG projects a day in my (ha) spare time with a good tail wind...

    Glad you like! Rainyday is helping me get this stuff all over on her photobucket account so that it's not taking up so much bandwidth here and so that I can post them larger than I generally have been, due to their inherent file sizes...
