King Neptune sends a messenger, a knight of daydreams…

Last weekend it was “the holiest of holies” for our family, the weekend when everything stops; the weekend when we sit in front of the television, eat too much of the wrong foods, set the PVR to a half-hour’s delay to zap the ads, and watch The Great Race. It’s an all-day festival of high-octane, gas-guzzling, politically incorrect entertainment, and a family tradition for as long as I can remember… I grew up in a house full of revheads. I don’t claim allegiance to either camp, to the red or the blue flags; I just enjoy the show.

The only way the Great Race could be any better was if it really was raced aboard mechanical steeds, robot horses indeed capable of in excess of 250 kph down the long mountain straight, then up the torturous hill again… and that got me experimenting.

Start in Poser with a horse… study a lot of horse pictures to create an original pose… set up a rider…

So this isn’t a picture of a robot horse or the Great (Robot Horse) Race, but it’s a step along the way. Heaps of experimenting with Bryce textures, and the result is an elemental herald. He might be glimpsed galloping along the sand just on sundown, when the light gets weird…

Horse and rider exported from Poser. Image rendered in Bryce 7 Pro.

Please note that this image looks significantly darker when printed.
