Computer Art Gallery
All the buttons used for the "hot-spots" throughout my website were created with either computer graphic software: Illustrator, PhotoShop, or Softimage. The computer button was created in Illustrator. The pallettes, graphic pen, colored pencils, and the "Next" button were created in PhotoShop. The mailbox (or "E-mail"), living room (or "Home" button) and "Resume" buttons were created in Softimage.
The Christmas Kiss
For this character study for novelist D.L. Mossholder, I painted a pencil sketch in Photoshop 5.0.
Home Sweet Home
I created this room, and the objets d'art in it, using Softimage 3.0 Software, on an SGI computer.
I created this hand using Meta Clay in Softimage 3.0, then converted it to a polygon, added fingernails that were formed from a sphere, deformed with a lattice and attached the colors and materials.
I created this animation using Softimage 3.0 Software, on SGI computers. Then, I fetched the twenty-five frame animation to an IBM and coverted it to GIFF Animation.
I created this throne room using Softimage, on an SGI computer. I rendered the image with the Softimage on-screen renderer, then converted the image to a JPEG file. When I created the image, the light and material shaders had not been loaded on the school system due to memory restrictions. I had to fake the lighting and materials in the scene. The
lighting was faked by applying blurs to rounded shapes inside the light fixtures.
I created the thrones using Softimage, on an SGI computer. I rendered the image with the Softimage on-screen renderer, then converted the image to a JPEG file.
This image is a space ship intended to give the impression of both a sarcophogus and something possibly alive.
Portrait of Paul McGann
This is a Photoshop 5.0 painting of the British Actor, Paul McGann. I started with a low resolution, black and white image found on the Internet, then "painted" it in Photoshop.
This is a Persian children's story translated by Hamid Dianaty, my husband, and illustrated in 3D. Click on the book graphic to go to the next page of the story. There are 48 pages in the story, including text pages, which were also prepared in 3D.
