Hairy Ticks of Dune

There's only room enough in this stillsuit for one of us! ... Wait, come back!

Today's a holiday in these parts (not that every day lately hasn't been like a holiday, what with it being spring break and all, but never mind!) and I have spent most of it messing around with the new version of Cheetah3D, a modelling app for the Mac. The above is a little something I created from one of the included examples, incorporating a landscape panorama created using Terragen. It could either be the little silver ball from Chapter House all grown up or...Erasmus's brain? I don't know.

Anyway, I was rather pleased with the way it turned out (Doesn't it almost look like a photograph of a real object?), so there you go. More later....

Why thank you.

It'll be the last image file I do for a day or so, unfortunately. Went to do something last night and Fireworks wouldn't start up. Tried reinstalling it and the GDed Adobe/Macromedia authorization system wouldn't let me. And in the process also disabled all my other Studio MX apps (Dreamweaver, Flash, FreeHand). I've got a newer academic version in the office that will probably install OK, but this shit really burns my sphincter hairs... Grrrrrrr!

(Rant over, back to normal!)

Well if you ever get the time, and are feeling a bit dark and morbid, you should make me a graphic of an axlotl tank :) I'm looking for something to replace my screename in the last cell of my signature at Dunenovels. Its a bit self-aggrandizing to have my name in the sig I suspect :)
