[Image] USS ENTERPRISE OVER CLASS M PLANET
A complete re-do of my Enterprise model, to give more accurate shapes and better texturing.

[Image] USS ENTERPRISE LEAVING SPACE STATION K-7
Another angle of the new Enterprise model.

[Image] STARGATE
A re-creation of the Stargate and gate room from the television series Stargate SG-1.

Image size (JPEG): 1024x768, 148 K

[Image] SPACE STATION K-7
The space station on the Klingon-Federation border, from the classic Star Trek episode The Trouble with Tribbles. It also made a "guest appearance" on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

[Image] K-7 HANGAR BAY
A close-up view of the hangar bay in Space Station K-7.

[Image] OPERATION EXODUS
A flight of Space:1999 Eagles transporting the Moonbase Alpha personnel to the planet that will become their new home (...or will it?)

Image size (JPEG): 800x600, 113 K

[Image] EAGLE # 1
My attempt at modelling the workhorse spacecraft from Space:1999, ironically modelled within a month of the show's date of "Breakaway".

[Image] ASTEROID BELT
The Enterprise removing an obstacle in its path. This image was created for an "asteroids" competition at the SciFi-Art web site.

Image size (JPEG): 800x600, 107 K


----------

[Image] DELTA VEGA
A digital re-creation of a matte painting from the original Star Trek TV series. This image was created for the January-February 1999 round of the Internet Raytracing Competition, which had a theme of Imaginary Worlds.

[Image] EMINIAR VII
Another digital re-creation of a Star Trek matte painting for the "Imaginary Worlds" round of the Internet Raytracing Competition.

[Image] BENDER MEETS NOMAD
Bender (from Matt Groening's Futurama) poses for a vacation snapshot with an old friend.

Image size (JPEG): 800x600, 89 K

[Image] PHALANX
A tight formation of Starfleet scouts, destroyers and heavy cruisers en route to repel a Klingon incursion. (See the animated version of this image, available from the Animation Gallery.)

[Image] BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (unfinished)
Having enjoyed the feelings of nostalgia produced by re-creating objects from the original Star Trek series, I looked for a more challenging "classic SF" spaceship to model. Though I placed this project on the back burner, I may eventually return to it. Until then, here's a sample of what how it was progressing.

[Image] LANDING PARTY EQUIPMENT
Reproductions of the Type I Phaser and Communicator from the original Star Trek series, accompanied by a miniature model of the Enterprise.

Image size (JPEG): 800x600, 64 K


----------

[Image] ORBIT
After a far-too-long hiatus from raytracing, finally a new image: The USS Enterprise from the original Star Trek, in orbit around a Class M planet.

Image size (JPEG): 800x600, 63 K


See also the Animation Gallery for a video clip of the Enterprise entering orbit.

[Image] THE INTEROCITER HOMEPAGE
An hommage to a device from the 1954 film This Island Earth. It also appeared in Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie's spoof of the film, and Weird Al's video "Dare to be Stupid" and his movie UHF. The Interocitor seems to be science fiction's equivalent of Lovecraft's Necronomicon, for references to it keep cropping up in other science fiction movies and television shows.

[Image] A SCHOLLER'S TOOLS
I finally decided that I'd been fooling around with POV-Ray long enough, and that it was time to take the plunge and enter the Internet Ray-Tracing Competition. This image, which took nearly two weeks of solid work, was my entry for the March-April 1997 competition. The topic for this particular competition was School. For more information about the image, read the IRTC entry form. The POV-Ray source files are available here.

To my utter surprise, this image placed first in the competition.

[Image] YOUR BREAK!
I know pool balls are fairly standard fare for raytracing, but this was an experiment in working with the text object, as well as getting the stripes to blend slightly with the unpainted parts of the spheres, as one would see with a real pool ball.

[Image] CHALICE
This image isn't quite finished yet, but even in its preliminary stages, I think it still looks pretty neat. While it's fun to create photorealistic images of things that have never existed, it's even more challenging to try and model real-world objects with a high degree of realism.

[Image] BORG 95
This image was created in response to my discovery that one can only access the official Star Trek Web site if one is a member of the Microsoft Network. [Technical details.]

[Image] BIOHAZARD
This particular image was a waking residue from a particularly surreal dream I had: a stone biohazard symbol rising out of a sea of blood.

Image size (JPEG): 640x480, 40 K

[Image] CHROME SATURN
This was the first ray-traced image I did. Chrome spheres seem to be a requirement for computer-generated scenes, so who was I to argue? :-)
