Digital Art

I was cleaning up my images directory on my computer recently and was reminded of another time in my life when I work full time in a photo lab's digital imaging department. During those days (1996-1999) everyone in the department was playing with all the new imaging tools. One of my favorites was a landscape rendering program called Bryce. You may remember it I believe it was used to create the graphics for the original MYST computer game (I am really dating myself now) anyway I really enjoyed this other creative outlet. Although at the time to 'render' a hi-res image for printing often took me overnight on my pore old Pentium 60 pc. I was able to create some cool stuff. Here are a couple of examples of some of the scenes I created.

I've not used Bryce but have used Terragen, PSP and PS. I love doing the digital paintings and creations too. I miss my palette though - it wasn't compatible with this new computer and they didn't do updates. Think I'll look at what Wacom has to offer.
These darn word verifications are a real pain now - this is the fourth time trying...

Hi Janice -
I'll turn off the word verifications until I start getting spammed... then they'll have to go back. Hopefully I won't need to. They are a drag.
