"To know a thing well, know it limits. Only when pushed beyond its tolerances will true nature be seen. Do not depend only on theory if your life is at stake."

- Bene Gesserit Commentary
(Frank Herbert, "Chapterhouse: Dune")

A seascape I made for a dear friend. Maya, Mudbox, and Photoshop here. Prints available.

Path in the Woods
"Any path that narrows future possibilities may become a lethal trap. Humans are not threading their way through a maze; they scan a vast horizon filled with unique opportunities. The narrowing viewpoint of the maze should appeal only to creatures with their noses buried in the sand."
- The Spacing Guild Handbook

(Frank Herbert, "Dune: Messiah")


A simple piece, view from a hike on a forested hillside. Created with Maya, rendered in mental ray, and postwork in Photoshop as usual.

Farm on the Lake
"There is in each of us an ancient force that takes and an ancient force that gives. A man finds little difficulty facing that place within himself where the taking force dwells, but it’s almost impossible for him to see into the giving force without changing into something other than man. For a woman, the situation is reversed. ... These things are so ancient within us that they're ground into each separate cell of our bodies. We're shaped by such forces. You can say to yourself, 'Yes, I see how such a thing may be.' But when you look inward and confront the raw force of your own life unshielded, you see your peril. You see that this could overwhelm you. The greatest peril to the Giver is the force that takes. The greatest peril to the Taker is the force that gives. It's as easy to be overwhelmed by giving as by taking. (And you, my son, are you one who gives or one who takes? I'm the fulcrum. I cannot give without taking and I cannot take without...)
  • Paul speaking to Jessica

("Dune", Frank Herbert)

I'm having  challenging time lately finding the best composition for my landscape artwork.  Perhaps I've been spoiled or tainted by my arch/viz career, where an image always has a center of interest (such as a bathroom vanity or kitchen sink area), and is always rendered for print at 11x8.5 ratios...

But I feel the need to delve into more panoramic renders for my personal artwork, and find it a bit frustrating to decide on and implement focal points.  I've read up on tradition landscape composition techniques; maybe I'm just trying to cram too much into my scenes?

Anyway, I'll be posting up some recent works-in-progress for you all to critique, so stay tuned and don't be nice about the scenes, please!  Let me have it.  I could use some new ideas!

Aye, it comes and goes in waves for me as well. Sometimes I get inspired, but then the stupid software nullifies it. Sometimes the software is rockin', and yet I'm not inspired. Hah!

Thanks for making such awesome artwork!

I really suck at characters/people, and tend to stick to landscapes and scenes more as a result. :)
