Serenity flying over earth
Wednesday, July 6, 2005

Hey guys! I was messing around with lightwave, and made this image with Sean Kennedy's beautiful Serenity model! I am a beginner when it comes to lightwave, so don't be too harsh on me :-) Anyway, I like it enough to post it here! Credits of course to Sean!

Amazing! Very well done!

Nifty... But aren't the thruster glows blue and the engine turbine gold?

Maybe my memory's playing tricks on me. ;)

You're right, the thrusters are supposed to be blue, but since I'm not that good with lightwave, I just used a tutorial to make a fire+smoketrail, and than put Serenity in between. I'll look into it though.

This is Sean. Good wok with the image. Keep practicing, and you'll do better. Don't kick youself for being inexperienced with LW. Took me five years of spare time and self training to get where I am now.

Wow, thanks everyone!
I'll certainly keep practicing with Lightwave, and with your wonderful Serenity, Treybor :-)
My summer vacation starts this week, and then I'll have lots of spare time to work in lightwave, read tutorials and such, to make some better images!

VERY spiffy! keep up the good work... and practice, practice, practice... don't be afraid to use Photoshop for touchups and effects, it works great!

Yes, actually, that is a volcano (The Etna, to be precise)

Even as a thumbnail I could tell this was beautiful. Full size it's astounding. Almost too painfully lovely in the context of Firefly.

Me with Jewel Staite!
Hey guys, this time no Lightwave or photoshop image, this time a pic of me and the beatiful, amazing, wonderful Jewel Staite. This was taken last week at Serenity Cubed in London. It was a good thing her husband wasn't there :-)

Serenity cubed artwork competition entry
Hello all! I just got back from Serenity Cubed and had THE best time over there! (I even saw and talked to Jewel again later on at the airport, that was SO cool!!). Anyway, for those of you who were there, I had an entry in the artwork competition, wich is this one I'm posting right now. I had already posted it a long time ago, but thought it'be cool to post it again since maybe people would want to print one for themselfs or something to that effect. Anyway, enjoy! (And I slightly improved the poster)

Serenity Wallpaper
Hey guys! I was bored and had to create a new wallpaper for my desktop!
Hope you guys like it too! (no lightwave this time, sorry :-) )

MMM, Firefly
Well, ok, it ain't exactly the most beautiful art, or a great deal of work, but being a big Simpsons fan, I had to laugh, and wanted to share it with you guys!

Serenity "poster" effect
Hey guys! Long time no post, so I just thought I should post something again. This is just a little expiriment, trying to see what works and what doesn't in photoshop. Anyhow, I kinda liked this :-)

Well, here's a boat I feel safe to sail on! :-)
I came across this on the internet! Interesting name...:-)I want a boat too! Just so I can name it Serenity :-)

Find a crew, find a job, keep flyin!
Hi guys! Thought it was time to post something again. It's a simple image, I know, but I thought it looks kinda cool! :-)

Serenity Poster
Hi all! I decided to create a Serenity poster using Lightwave and photoshop (well, mostly photoshop).
I'm not very experienced with photoshop, but I think this one turned out pretty well.

Short Serenity animation in Lightwave
Hi guys! This time I tried to do a short animation with Sean's Serenity model. Though it's very short, I think it looks pretty good. I uploaded it here:

Below is a screencap from the clip.

Serenity goed for another ride! :-)
Hi guys! This time I tried to create an image with the landing gear of Serenity since no-one has done that before (or not that I've seen). And since they already went for a ride; they're now going for another :-)
