Each masterpiece has an arty farty or technical commentary attached... so even if the pictures suck, the words might be okay. We're trying to cover ALL the bases.
SICKNESS BREEDS ART
Why, by gosh, after X-Day, why, I, Stang, got so darned sick in the head that my ear-ball balance-tube-hairs got all encrusted with white hate crystals, and I got bad ape vertigo for a couple of weeks, and, why, by gobbs, I couldn't really do much of anything without getting dizzy except either read sf books in bed, or else fiddle about on my computer. And, why, even that was SO STRENUOUS... so I had to find something worthwhile for my COMPUTER to do while I lounged in bed reading sf novels.
Well, most of these 3D computer graphics images take a couple of hours just to render, so, well, there wasn't much of an ALTERNATIVE for me to DO besides, well, just make new computer graphics scenes and let them RENDER while I took it easy. At least that way ONE of us was working, me or Muleskinner.
So I dug up my old Bryce files of the humongous scenes I made for that Steve Jackson card game, and why, I just had me the MOST FUN, moving the camera from one unlikely place to another, and letting it render that while I rested. Getting "snapshots" of various points of views within my old Bryce scenes that I had always WONDERED ABOUT.
I also got to reviewing all the OUT-TAKES from that card game project, and found a bunch of almost-nifty images, mostly tests that had been generated while developing the finished pics. I found that in retrospect, I liked some of the tests better than the final product. I also got to FIDDLING COMPULSIVELY with Kai's Power Tools and other Photoshop plug-ins and filters (I hadn't done so since reading the BOOK on 'em during the game project)... so, WELL, WHY, some pics that had been pretty half-assed to begin with are now almost three quarters assed.
