A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

No, not really… although I did make these images more than a decade ago! I’d completely forgotten about them. I rediscovered them when I was backing up some of my old computer files. Hands up if you’ve heard of Bryce, the 3D modelling software. Hands up if you knew about it in 2002. Back then, the program was owned by Corel (it’s now owned by DAZ) and I was teaching myself CorelDraw and PhotoPaint. Corel users were offered a free trial and it sounded like fun…

I created seascapes, landscapes, snow-covered mountains and shiny spheres floating in impossible skies. And it was a lot of fun. But rendering the scenes was painfully slow and I seem to remember crashing my computer frequently and often during the process. A month’s trial was quite long enough. Seeing these images again now though, I’ve been wondering about checking out the latest version… but it’s just not possible to do everything — there simply aren’t enough hours in the day!

    Es otra manera de entender el arte. Las nuevas tecnologías te ofrecen muchas posibilidades que la pintura tradicional no. De todas maneras, lo importante siempre es la imaginación o el sentimiento del artista, y tu tienes mucho de las dos cosas. Saludos desde Alicante (España)
