Temple City by Bunny Clarke

Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

We had been traipsing around the galaxy in hunt of the legendary city known as Temple City. It is said the civilization there depended greatly on their priests to run the city and their government. From our past history, we know how that can end.

As we walked througout the many levels of the city, there was cinder scattered all over. Having dual suns made the lighting a bit eerie at times. There was no wildlife in the air nor the ocean. We found no life in the city. The temples were gorgeous, but there was a feeling of sadness all throughout the area. We left with the feeling of great loss. And no, we did no treasure hunting. :o)

Created in Incendia with postwork done in Photoshop for Hue and some clean up with smudging and painting that never seemed to go away from the 6 day render. Some of the forms just seem to work out that way. Thank goodness for Photoshop. :o)

I try to create images that will touch your heart or soul and make them go “twang”. Eye candy for the soul is my goal. :o)

    Its a lovely image. However I would never have the patience to wait all that time to render something. I like Xenodream but have never ventured much further than 2 or 3 holons.

  • I have learned great patience from these renders. It took me a while to get there, but when I saw what I was getting, I am more willing to wait now. I do work with XenoDream from time to time, but it is so complex I have to struggle with it. I love the stuff from it though.

    A city of wonders and mystery! I love the colours and want to visit!

    And I thought that my 38 hours renders were long…LOL I agree though, it’s worth it. :)

  • Since the new plugins came out for Apophysis, I started seeing render times get longer. They sometimes rival Incendia for the quality of image I want. The things we do for art. :o)

    cool image Bunny! is this 1.3?
    are you aware of the use of ‘zoom’ and ‘scale’ controls to reduce render times while maintaining quality? the tradeoff is the preview quality…can reduce a 12hr. render to 1/2 hr or so…I routinely do 9000×7200pixel renders in 20min or so…

  • LOL Yes I know in Apo you can do that. It’s just that some of the plugins require more time to render and I render at a fairly high quality (just my pickiness) so they take a while. This is 1.3 HR of Incendia. :o)

    have done series of test images with quality settings from 2000 to 50,000, seems to make little difference in large images…mostly in small size…no point in doing small images unless large prints aren’t wanted…
    High quality is worth being picky for!
    what quality settings do you usually use?

  • I use 2000 for the quality 4 for sampling and the size is usually 3800×2400. Some of the ones using a couple of the more complex plugins took 3 days to render. My machine is a bit older, but not that bad. A Pentium 4 with a decent processor. Next machine will be a quad core for sure. :o)

    It looks like an image taken right of a sci-fi or fantasy novel. I love it.

  • OOooo! Thank you for that huge compliment. :o)

    Incendia is the real time hog! Did one render that took over two weeks straight (on a dual core laptop), and was still cooking until power line work stopped that!
    Gotta download 1.3, thought Aexion was gonna send them or inform when available…heheheh, so much for being patient!

  • I wrote and asked if the final version was ready. He didn’t think there were enough changes, but I wanted it anyway. :o) One suggestion I make for working with this program is stopping and saving the buffers frequently… about every 8 hours or so. I do that so if I have a power loss or something happen, I can recover with minimal loss of work. :o)

    Scott Brickerabout 5 years ago

    yup, I learned to do that when rendering that one…lost it at 80hrs. the first time, 50 hrs. the second, and twice at 30hrs….learned to save periodically…!
    Looks like 1.3 has more base shapes….

  • More Base shapes and more texture possibilities. He has a place on wikiplaces with tuts and info too.
