Bambarella_t.jpg (4071 bytes) Bambarella -- 432 x 480 Jpeg, 57K

It was my first deliberate attempt at painting on the computer, so I decided to make it a tribute to two favorite old movies (apologies to Walt and Jane).  It took me about 40 hours to color it with the mouse in Aldus Photostyler.

Legend1_t.jpg (4469 bytes) Legend the Griffin Bard -- 400 x 468 Jpeg, 75K

My anthropomorphic griffin roleplaying character.   This is my sketch of the character design done for me by one of my favorite artists, Lela Dowling.

QualinPortrait_t.jpg (3632 bytes) Portrait of Qualin -- 1024 x 768 Jpeg, 184K

This was my first portrait of a friend's roleplaying character.  Qualin is a dragon-morph that can become human (or vice versa).  Although he isn't supposed to be magic, I added a  glow effect so I could play around with hand-painted light textures.

Wolfingham_t.jpg (4373 bytes) Wolfingham Forest -- 800 x 600 Jpeg, 160K

A banner for a friend's roleplaying area on PowWow.   I picked up the impressionistic oil painted background look from Bob Ross's "happy trees".  The characters were inspired by the art of Monika Livingstone.

SwanTake2_t.jpg (3002 bytes) The Swan Princess, Take 2 -- 800 x 600 Jpeg, 142K

Ever wonder what would happen if the Hero and the Villain in the Swan Princess reached a Peace Accord?  A tongue-in-beak tribute to the animated movie, painted with Painter 4 and the ArtPad.

EnchantedSea3_t.jpg (3001 bytes) Enchanted Sea -- 800 x 600 Jpeg, 81K

This was one of those lucky accidents of playing around with Bryce textures until something weird happens.  I tried to duplicate later, and couldn't.

BlueSky3_t.jpg (3015 bytes) Blue Sky -- 640 x 480 Jpeg, 78K

For a friend on IRC, inspired by the Pink Floyd song.  My first attempt at importing 2D clip-art into a 3D scene.

WishRealm1_t.jpg (3199 bytes) The Wishing-Beast's Realm -- 640 x 640 Jpeg, 95K

An illustration for a children's story in progress, rendered in Bryce 2.

WishRealm2_t.jpg (3428 bytes) The Wishing-Beast's Realm, version 2 -- 800 x 600 Jpeg, 109K

The same scene in Bryce 3D, with a shining castle and crystal bridges.  This scene works from any point of view, even right down on a bridge or inside the crystal cave, so I can use it for a lot of the story's illustrations.
