Vision Quest Cover Version 2.0

This image is a refined version of an earlier work of mine. I considered the original always a bit flawed, so I decided to revisit this one and try to perfect it, or at least improve upon it. I created this scene within the 3D program DAZ Studio, with a lot of post work in Photoshop, which including the swirling effect, and multiple layers blended with various filter effects. The frame and digital signature were, of course, the final bits of post work. This image was accepted by the editor of the comic book Katmandu as the cover for issue 37 of that comic, but due to health problems the publisher has discontinued that particular comic, so it never saw print.

Marooned Version 2.0

This is another example of a second version of an earlier image that I designed. I made many small adjustments to the overall composition, and the positions of the primary 3D components within this scene. I costumed and posed the human figure in DAZ Studio, and then imported that model into Bryce, where I composed the final scene. For the post work, I used Photoshop, which included framing, and then adding the embossed digital signature. This is another image in my cover art demonstration project, showing how well I can create an image suitable for book or magazine cover art. I continue to be available for freelance cover art work.

An Audience with Dragon Lord Kirin

I originally created this image to illustrate a story concept a friend and I continue working on collaboratively. I prepared and posed the figures in DAZ Studio, then imported them into Bryce and positioned them for the scene. This image employees some very special lighting effects, which lends to the fantasy atmosphere. I used Photoshop for the post work, which included a small amount of layering, and then lastly the digital signature.

Abstract Image 595 Variation Two - Xenous: Mind Within The Machine

Back before I started creating my current Fractal series, and even before I did my Kaleidoscopic Cross series, I initiated my largest digital art series, which I simply called my Abstract Image series. With over 700 images thus far, I continue adding to this series, created with a mixture of layered filter effects in Photoshop, sometimes using fractal layers. I recently revisited one of the images from my Abstract Image series, and created some variations off of that theme. This is one of those new variants; created especially to illustrate one of my upcoming articles, Will the Internet Become a Sentient Being? Part Two. I used Photoshop further for the additional post work, including the digital framing effect, and the digital signature.

Alas Background

I present my art annually at a local Science Fiction / Fantasy convention called, Mid South Con. Every year, just before the convention, I prepare at least one new piece especially as the center piece of the show. This year I wanted to make a piece demonstrating my ability to create a work of art suitable as a magazine or book cover, allowing negative space for text, while still having a pleasing composition. In Bryce I set up this image as a kind of backdrop for the ultimate piece I planned to give the simple title, Alas. In Photoshop I added the digital signature.

Abstract Image 595 Variation Three - Xenous: Mind Within The Machine

Back before I started creating my current Fractal series, and even before I did my Kaleidoscopic Cross series, I initiated my largest digital art series, which I simply called my Abstract Image series. With over 700 images thus far, I continue adding to this series, created with a mixture of layered filter effects in Photoshop, sometimes using fractal layers. I recently revisited one of the images from my Abstract Image series, and created some variations off of that theme. This is one of those new variants; created especially to illustrate one of my upcoming articles, Will the Internet Become a Sentient Being? Part Three. I used Photoshop further for the additional post work, including the digital framing effect, and the digital signature.

Buoy Encounter Version 2.0

As part of my project to demonstrate my abilities to design & create art suitable for book or magazine covers, I took an older image setup I had created in a horizontal or what is known as the landscape format, and created a vertical or portrait formatted version. The portrait format is the arrangement most often desired for cover art, so this orientation is best for this demonstration project. This image, depicting a Gunship battle cruiser jumping into normal space from “hyperspace” in the background, finding a space buoy in the extreme foreground orbiting a small planet, combines effects I created within the 3D programs DAZ Studio, and Bryce, together with post work in Photoshop, with which I enhanced the star field, and added the digital signature.

The Dragons Veil

Using both 3D programs Bryce and DAZ Studio, I composed this piece, derived from an earlier piece I did, titled “Tasting Thermals”. I custom adapted the image for use as the e-book cover art for the fantasy e-book, “The Dragons’ Veil Volume 1”. I used Photoshop for the post work, which included some layering, and embossing the digital signature. You can find this particular e-book and see the final cover with the Title and author by line layered in with Photoshop, at: http://www.writers-exchange.com/The-Dragons-Veil.html.

Pyramid of Cathari Gnosis

I used this word art illustration on the second page of my four page article, with the same title, http://socyberty.com/philosophy/pyramid-of-cathari-gnosis/ I used Photoshop with some KPT filter effects to produce the gradient background and layering effects to give the letters the embossed almost 3D like qualities. I then used Photoshop for the further post work of adding the digital signature.

Abstract Image 595 Variation Four - Xenous: Mind Within The Machine

Back before I started creating my current Fractal series, and even before I did my Kaleidoscopic Cross series, I initiated my largest digital art series, which I simply called my Abstract Image series. With over 700 images thus far, I continue adding to this series, created with a mixture of layered filter effects in Photoshop, sometimes using fractal layers.
