POV-Ray

These are the images I've rendered with POV-Ray. Every image has its review, dwelling on the original idea, the objects and lighting, and finally, a personal note. Those marked with "Making Of" differ from the brief review and provide a deeper insight into the creation, techniques and/or tricks that went into making the image. All Making Ofs on one page can be found here.

To just look through a slide-show of the images, click on any of the thumbnails and move the mouse to the left/right edge of the image to click on the Previous/Next-Button.

Directions

Sometimes, you get confused and lost where to go. And all those ideas and motivations don't help much!

A couple Non-Solutions

When things look bleak and you're weary, some might think about suicide. But suicide isn't a solution, it's just an end - and you never know, if something good might still be in store for you.

Prepared for Company

It's a rather realistic setting when you've prepared everything and are just waiting for your company to arrive.

Rainy Days

Every now and then, everything feels like a solid downpour. Why does it always rain on me?

Lost in Geometric Space

Made for the IRTC, this one shows a lonely litte furry fellow, lost in geometric space. Sometimes, you're just not where you're supposed to be.

Furry Fellow Fight Club

Just a quick test for my Hair-Macros, these two guys got into an argument. But don't worry, they're too small to hurt themselves.

Memory

Some people just leave their marks, and even though they're gone, you notice that they still occupy some space - be it real or just in your mind.

Goodbye

Friends don't always stay close. Sometimes, they get lost, either on purpose, or by accident.

Bonds

Some friends are so close, you just want to hug them all the time.

Resurface

Hurt feelings often get shelved at some point, just to keep them out of sight. Sometimes, they get thrown into life's mix again.

Flyblue

Playing with my LSSM and a Poser figure, this is the result. Rather abstract, huh?

Newborn

A reflective sphere on a checkered plane, the traditional starting image for a Pover. This one was made after a system crash where I lost just about all and every data of my POV-Art. Sort of like a reboot on my art, a new starting point.
