True North
This piece is a "side-project" that I started in the middle of working on something else.   I was working on a new  sci-fi project and decided that an unused element would work nicely as an aurora.   The scene was designed and rendered on my old Bucephalus workstation.
Foggy Christmas Eve

I know a lot of you look forward to my yearly Christmas wallpaper and I certainly look forward to making them! This year I wanted to try something new with my Christmas trees to add a bit more realism to the magic.

Believe it or not I've never tried covering my trees in 3D snow before. Up until now I've always used 2D tricks to give the illusion of a thin coating of snow on my meshes.

For "Foggy Christmas Eve" I used The Plant Factory to create trees with real(ish) clumps of snow. Decorations were also created in Plant Factory. This is my actually my first project created entirely using the brand new new 2016 versions of The Plant Factory and Vue d'Esprit Infinite and I think it turned out rather well :-)

Of course, the technique could certainly be improved and I will be working to do so. In the meantime be looking for a night version of this scene (and multiscreens) soon!

Cogito Ergo Sum
While looking up at the stars one recent evening I had the idea that if you were to look directly down on someone floating on a calm sea at night, they might appear to be drifting in space.   I liked the idea so much that I paused my Autumn landscape render (which is very nearly finished) and set about crafting it.

"Cogito Ergo Sum" (I think, therefore I am) is a companion piece of sorts to The Dreamer.  The boat and the boy are the same (though altered slightly for this scene). Where the action in that render takes place beneath the surface of the water, this piece uses a reflected sky.  I hope you enjoy it!

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
