Accretion by dblasphemy
Ever since I upgraded to a triple-4K monitor setup (see below), I have been trying to design my renders first for the 48:9 aspect ratio.  

Shadowfax (My New Rendering Rig) 28 Cores/128GB by dblasphemy 

Here's my first "ultra-wide" space render, created using Lightwave 3D.  I made heavy use of instancing and volumetric lights here.

It's nice to work at home :-)

The desk was custom made for me but a local carpenter about 10 years ago. I originally designed it for a multi-monitor setup but I've only used one screen until now. Shadowfax is running 2 Xeon E5-2697W v3 2.6GHz 14-core CPUs and is equipped with 128 GB of RAM. The monitors are driven by a NVIDIA TITAN X. The monitors are BenQ BL3201PH 32" IPS LED 4K running at a combined 11520 x 2160.

The wallpaper is called "Highland Spring" and can be found in my gallery at….

There's a free version available at…

...Dany gasped.  They were the most beautiful things she had ever seen, each different than the others, patterned in such rich colors that at first she thought they were crusted with jewels, and so large it took both of her hands to hold one.  She lifted it delicately, expecting that it would be made of some fine porcelain or delicate enamel, or even blown glass, but it was much heavier than that, as if were all solid stone.  The surface of the shell was covered with tiny scales, as as she turned the egg between her fingers, they shimmered like polished metal in the light of the setting sun.  One egg was a deep green, with burnished bronze flecks that came and went depending on how Dany turned it.  Another was pale cream streaked with gold.  The last was black, as black as midnight yet alive with scarlet ripples and swirls.  "What are they?" she asked, her voice hushed and full of wonder

"Dragon's eggs, from the Shadow Lands beyond Asshai..." -- Game of Thrones, by George R. R. Martin.

I've long been fascinated with the descriptions of the dragon's eggs in the world of "The Song of Ice and Fire".  Most of the ones I've seen represented IRL have huge scales but the description from the text says they are tiny.   I chalked this up to craftspeople maybe not having the ability to create tiny scales.  This is not a problem that I have on my computer however.

I created this scene in Lightwave on my mobile workstation while Bucephalus worked rendering another project.

Happy Easter!!

Hey Ryan,
You know I NEVER do tags, but to this one I do a single one time exception. Its to beautiful not to
Tag a quality deviant, You’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to all deviants who deserve it (Or as many or few as you want). If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!HeartHugs Anne
