    Hi, BA. Time for me to make one of these!

    Going to fill the OP mostly with some bits and pieces to a project I'm working on. It's a bit too unfinished for a regular WIP thread. (there will of course be other stuff in this thread over time)

    EDIT: OP images had to be removed to try and trick the forum into using a better thumbnail.

    The IT equipment build continues. By the magic of linked libraries, here's a few hundred servers rendered with a few dozen MBs of RAM. Each type of unit is linked to a source file, so, for example, I can add some doodads to the 1U server and they'll all update automatically.

    Tonight's doodle, a simple jet ski! Modeled in zbrush (dynamesh+panel loops), rendered in Cycles. (water is Blender's ocean sim)

    I figured I'd throw the project files up if anyone wants them (note, it's about 68MB download. Also, you'll need to rebake the smoke yourself). http://dtc-wsuv.org/jclarke/koffing.zip

    This actually turned out much better than I was expecting it to:

    I've been doing some rain/bad weather comp stuff at work recently, I wanted to put those tricks to work in something a bit more spooky.

    Pluto and charon! (at mostly correct sizes, yay!)

    Lighting is kinda boring, I wanted to keep them more lit to show off the texturing work.

    This image is very cool.
    The fire got realistic!

    Just saw your thread thanks to the last addition, and some of your renders are impressive The sea with fire is beautiful.
    Are you going to continue the last architecture stuff ? Could be cool.

    @asmoth Not sure. I posted both the cathedral-type render and the cherry tree one because I'm not entirely sure what else to do with them. I'll probably end up chasing some new shiny idea. :P

    Finally got around to wrapping this image up. Been sitting on my hard drive for almost a month while I figured out what to do with it.

    Some sludge critters at play. Debated whether or not it was worth putting in the finished projects forum. I figure I've submitted worse in the past though, so why not. Posting it here too for posterity.

    A doodle from a few weekends back I forgot to post. I'm always terrified of flooded doorways you have to dive underwater to get past..

    That second to last one is very unusual for something rendered with Lux (assuming you're still using it). Maybe work on how you can increase the variation in the details.

    The image of the stairwell also gives a nice feeling of vertigo, though the steps in the middle tier look a bit blurry (as if a denoising filter was applied without enough care).
    Sweet Dragon dreams, lovely Dragon kisses, gorgeous Dragon hugs. How sweet would life be to romp with Dragons, teasing you with their fire and you being in their games, perhaps they can even turn you into one as well.
