One hundred into twenty-five

see 'One hundred into twenty-five' at deviantART

Inspired to try something with deliberately induced negative space. Despite the strict 100 squares, the manner in which the negative space has insinuated itself forces the viewer to contemplate 25 groups of 4 squares as the primary entities, reading almost as a sequence of comic-book scenes for whcih we we've somehow misplaced the faculty to interpret coherently. Stare long enough (at fullview, naturally), and faces shall surely glimmer back.

The inexorable encroachment of the parasitic viral mycelium of the x-strain of the triboarders spore :O

Colours tweaked in the GIMP for added luridness.

Ancient mosaic

see 'Ancient mosaic' at deviantART

This ancient piece of 'mosaic' flooring predates anything similar previously discovered. Not a true mosaic in that it isn't created from separate peices, rather the mosaic effect has been 'applied' after the glaze, whether deliberately by application of extreme heat or by natural erosion is still under fierce debate. The depiction is obscure, probably some kind of deity, but as little is known of the civilisation that created this city now only seeing light due to the rapidly diminishing ice sheets of Greenland, its elucidation will form the subject of much future study.

The very latest in faux-pale-gold-and-copper-enhanced brushed graphite interior bench-and-plinth units for that ultimate style statement.

Passages to inner dimensions

see 'Passages to inner dimensions' at deviantART

One to get lost in, so a large render, plus that characteristic DOF look from flam3.

BOBS triptych

see 'BOBS triptych' at deviantART

I was intrigued by this 7X BOBSscript, recalling an 'era' just prior to my own establishment here. I quickly discerned the salient features of its action and constructed a stripped-down base manually, with an extra transform for greater density. This was proper old-school flameage, and I fancied a bridging exercise, bringing just a hint of new variations and techniques to this form originally delineated by the late venerable master Batoruco. And so this is my tribute, three variations on the same framework utilising substitution, pre-linking and variations not available at that time.
