After many months concentrating on other projects and with no time to update anything here, I'm back and hoping to have some time to get some new images done. I'd like to thank you all for all your favourites, watches, lamas and comments. It is great to come back and see them all.

Last month upgraded my copy of Terragen 2 to Terragen 3. Planetside have done a superb job with Terragen 3, a very impressive upgrade, and I'm looking forward to creating some scenes with it.

First up is my first landscape rendered in Terragen 3:

Having used various 3D applications, such as CINEMA 4D, Luxology modo, and Side Effects Houdini, for a while, around the end of 2011 I became interested in using 3D Scenery Generators, such as Terragen, and Vue Infinite to produce images and animations of natural, and not so natural environments.

A bit of in the way of background. I have a first degree in Biology, and PhD in Environmental Chemistry, which is helpful for the more technical aspects of creating 3D art. I worked at the Royal Academy of Arts in London whilst writing my Thesis, which enhanced an already deep interest in Art. 3D art gives me the opportunity to draw on the various strands in my background in a way that other creative disciplines can't match.

I also produce electronic music under the AKA Penboa. My music productions range from chillout through progressive house and trance. Tracks have been used for Fashion Shows, Contemporary Dance and Modern Ballet. I play Tenor and Soprano Saxophones, and Clarinet. You can hear examples of my music on SoundCloud .

Thanks it was good! Might be a while before another scene get made, too many other things going on. I'm working very slowly in modo 801, as I recently upgraded my modo 601 licence to 801 while it was on offer. I'm thinking of doing a smaller scale scene in modo. Terragen 3 and modo 801 complement each other very well.
