Fire Below Ice by dblasphemy
Fire Below Ice
I read recently that there are lakes underneath Iceland's glaciers due to volcanic activity in the area.   My imagination was stoked and I set about creating my own fanciful version of what such a place might look like.   Ice modeled using Lightwave and Zbrush.   Rendered using Vue 2014.

Traveller (Planetside) by dblasphemy
Traveller (Planetside)
While Bucephalus chugged away rendering the snowy version of my Black Angel, I was inspired to create a new version of my "Traveller" scene from last year.   I've moved the icy moon in much closer to the planet, added a fiery moon in the foreground and some sublimating water vapor from the new sunlight angle.  

Rendered using Vue d'Esprit 11.   Planet background rendered using Lightwave 2014.    Photoshop used for blend the vapors.

The Black Angel by dblasphemy 

I created the original "Black Angel" as a Halloween wallpaper but I was already thinking how interesting it might look as a winter scene.
I've used the same snow-covering technique that I first attempted in Hokkaido to cover the branches and vines with snow.   This scene, however, was considerably more complicated so the results were  not always perfect.

 Inspired by the Black Angel in Iowa City's Oakland Cemetary, which I became familiar with during my time as an undergrad at the University of Iowa in the 90s.

This is what happens when I try to recreate a lost abstract and end up going off on an entirely different tangent.   I somehow managed to erase my scene file for "Infinitesimal" before I was able to render the multiscreen version.   I still had the objects though so I set about trying to recreate it.  

For whatever reason, though, I couldn't get it to look right.   I created a bit of new geometry then, thinking I would just create a new "Infinitesimal", but I was never able to get results that I felt were better than the gallery version.

I decided, in the end, to scrap the revision and just create something new with my new geometry.   I hope you like the results!

Hi, I've come across your art again and again on the internet collecting and buying my objects. Now at last I joined your website, became a member, donated some and am really happy that I could show you my appreciation that way. Thanks a whole lot for your outstanding, most beautiful work. I have yet a long way to go before I reach your level of perfection. Hope you don't mind if I put you in my friends list.

Wow!     Thank you so much for supporting my work and for this wonderful gift.   I certainly couldn't have come this far without the help of so many people like you around the world.

You've got some very nice renders in your gallery!   I'd be honored to be on your friends list!

Thanks again!!
