The Black Angel by dblasphemy
The Black Angel

More resolutions available to my supporters in my gallery!

The "Black Angel of Oakland Cemetary in Iowa City always freaked me out as a college student back in the 90s.   As you can see from the photo above, I couldn't even look at it.

While the statue in Iowa was my main inspiration, I'm sure some of you will also think of Doctor Who when you see this render.   Modeled and rendered using Lightwave, Poser9, The Plant Factory and Vue d'Esprit. 

Either way I hope you have a happy and safe Halloween!!

PS: Jessie took issue with my claiming the inspiration for this piece was the Black Angel in Iowa City. She correctly noted that our son Ian had been putting together a black angel costume for Halloween for the past month so he should get the credit. Thanks for the inspiration Ian!

Happy Birthday! (Make a Wish) by dblasphemy
Happy Birthday! (Make a Wish)
I've done wallpapers for other major holidays, but never for the most important holiday of all.     I created it for my own birthday (which is today -- 9/11) but I hope you will enjoy it on your birthday.   Feel free to share!

Modeled and rendered using Lightwave 3D.   Resolutions up to triple-5k available to my Members.
The Winter Rose by dblasphemy
The Winter Rose
You never know when inspiration might strike.   I've been re-reading George R. R. Martin's "A Clash of Kings" recently.   Daenerys Targaryen sees many visions in the "House of the Undying" including one that I thought would make an interesting wallpaper...

 "A blue flower grew from a chink in a wall of ice, and filled the air with sweetness..."

Some think the flower symbolizes Jon Snow, and in his very next chapter he meets Ygritte who tells him the story of "The Winter Rose".   Connected?   Maybe.

I thought it would make a pretty cool wallpaper though and I hope you agree.   Let me know what you think!

Here's a timelapse video showing how I created this piece using The Plant Factory and Vue d'Esprit...

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

I loved your art so much. It's really impressive because it fills your mind with ideas and your heart with that feeling of adventure, that feeling of creation. Really amazing! I'm so happy I found your art. When I need inspiration, I will look at your art. :aww:
