Bryce image

I sold a story to J at SamsDotPublishing about a concert in space. At the end the guitar player loses his fender tele and it falls to earth and is burned up in the atmosphere.
While trying to learn Bryce, I decided that this was the kind of scene that bryce was good at. Since I can’t do people, I found a guitar (not a telecaster as in the story, but close) and I showed it bursting into flames as it fell to earth. It took 10 minutes to render when I finally finished it and then Bryce crashed so I lost the working files. The moon is my own work, taken from a Nasa image of the moon. The flames. sky and sea all come with Bryce. Click on the picture above to see the big image.

Here is a closeup of the guitar:

My next step is to get some humans into the scenes. I am searching for Poser or Daz studio models of men in spacesuits. I have very nearly decided to buy the Daz Millenium Dragon so that I can illustrate my Dragon stories. I am not sure, though. I don’t want to have the same dragon as in a million other scenes. I would like to learn how to customize the models and perhaps produce my own spaceships and space suits and the other stuff that goes with Daz 3d Studio and Bryce.


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
