Many times the Detail in my work is overlooked because my models get so large. Id like to share a few close up renders of this Airship, just so you can see what you normally miss.

Another Viewpoint of the finished Model.

And a Screen capture of how I see things when I'm working on one of these. Those Yellow Spheres are Lights.

Wow Gumby, that is pure steam punk awesome! I haven't messed with Bryce for years, I recall it had a pretty steep learning curve.
You're really turning out impressive works.

Yes, very nice and I know it must have taken you quite a while to complete. How come all your backgrounds are relatively dark?

Thank you everyone. The model took about 30 hours off and on to complete, The first picture was rendered at 254 rays (passes) per pixel. Eleven plus hours to render, the other pictures I reduced the rays to 16. Just to speed things up. I have a dedicated PC for my art, its a clean machine that's never been on line. So it works while I I play and sleep.

Most of my artwork involves vehicles and metal, the models are created in Wings, Blender or Hexagon and then textured and rendered in Bryce. Bryce has the best Reflections of all the programs I use.

I use the Darker backgrounds because of the way the Program adjusts Contrast for Day vs Night. There's no control over that, there are additional plug ins, but Scripts are very expensive. So rather than wait for hours for something to finish and be disappointed I use what works best for sharpness, contrast and reflections. Its just the style I've developed over the years.

Here's a sample of a lighter background using this model.

I don't sell my art. I do this for entertainment, for myself and others. I post it online in various places and give it away. I've learned over the years that once Money becomes involved the enjoyment dissipates quickly.

And besides that I got 5 strips of Bacon for posting this, What the heck could be more rewarding?

I would really like to see what types of retro futuristic designs you would be able to create for some kind of robot cyborg android woman coalescence...

Kinda similar to this here only a full head to toe design (*-*)

That's cool Ill give it go. Im always open for suggestions. My early work was cyborgs and stuff like that. I had a PC crash and lost thousands of renderings. I've recovered a few of them that I had posted on line. That's the reason I keep one PC off line now.

Stuff like this:

Thanks JR Im glad you enjoy them. This is the one thing in life that truly relaxes me, when I get working on one, hours fly like minutes. When my wife sees me getting stressed out over sharing Current events and yelling at my PC, she says. " That's enough, go do some art"

Killer stuff!
You're very skillful.

Yeah, Bryce was what I fooled around with back in the day.
Fantastic atmospheric effects like fog, haze and all that.

Clearly, having a special offline puter is the way to go.
