I Forgot the Sheep

Back in the Sinclair ZX81 days, one of my favorite artists was (and still is) John Harris. This render is very much based on his mural proposal for Sinclair's building.

Modeled in Hexagon.
Textured and rendered in Vue Infinite.
Birch trees by Martin Frost.

Here is my '70s illustration version.

For fun, someone should color in this one.

And a hand-drawn version.

And no. I didn't trace it. :)

Mars Hits Earth (Preview 1)

Things do not end well as a terraformed Mars becomes a near Earth object.

Animation will be added later. Maybe some real voice acting will be used instead of my synthetic ones. Please leave comments.

Terraformed Mars Concept

Terraformed Mars rendered in Vue Infinite, using a hi-res sphere object with a displaced heightmap applied. Stars rendered in Paint Shop Pro, using the Glitterato plugin. Camera zoom was done in SONY Vegas Movie Studio. Voices were created using Bell Labs Research software, with sound effects added using FL Studio.
