Concerning my designs, and purchasing

If you purchase any of the desktop backgrounds from this weblog, please indicate which graphic you want. I'll try and fix this as I can. The best way to purchase them is through my store.

Here is the store front for desktop / wallpaper backgrounds. If you want any specific design you see here, or in my web store on a tshirt, coffee mug, print, or other - just let me know. I'll be happy to add it to my cafeepress store. ;)

If you buy one desktop background from this weblog at $1.00 - I'll send you two free desktop backgrounds. Or just donate $1.00 to this blog, and I'll send you three of your choice. The donate button is on the main page, "make a donation". Or... Just send $1.00 to cdump AT with your choice of backgrounds.

Updated Web Store...

I decided to take advantage of the Comcast Homepage that you get when you sign up for your cable internet services. I’ve made a basic little website there, which will allow people to buy my wallpapers and desktop backgrounds for $12 on CD (including free ground shipping), or you may purchase them once at a time for $0.25 (cents). I haven’t finished putting up pages for the ‘purchase one at a time’ still working on those. I’ll put them up a page at a time as I complete them. You can check that out here.

Concerning my desktop wallpapers...

I�ve decided to add the option to purchase the full size image for $1.00 from PayPal. Once you make your purchase you get a gracious email response from me with your attached full size wallpaper for your personal use on your computer.

What�s better than to make $1.00 on something you've spent your time creating? Know? And I figure a quarter isn�t all that steep of a price to pay for something so lovely to use as a desktop wallpaper.

Keep in mind PayPal gets a rather large percentage of this $1.00.

I've been working on this one lately... It needs a little something more.


Darcie (my cat) her leg isn't getting any better. Along with the 1 ml twice daily of the antibiotic she sleeps more often now. A little more distant, but I suppose that's due to her not feeling good. I brought her breakfast this morning, so that I could give her medication right after. She's been mostly curling up in her soft, comfy bed with her green towel-y. We've decided to get x-rays of the leg before dealing with her hard nipple. Her nipple just isn't bothering her. Besides she's 15 years old now, and any surgery is going to be hard for her to go through.

Rendering something new...

Time estimated for current render... 7 + hours on my iBook 1.33GHz G4 with 512MB built in. More memory would make it faster, but it’s rendering 1280 x whatever standard size. Back to having a beer, dinner, and listening to “Bad Brains”.

Currently in Amawalk, NY housesitting.

Edit: Well, the render would have been good, but couldn't save it. I've run into a bug with Bryce3D 5.01. It no longer will save my work. Not in any size. I hear it's a bug with the newest version of Tiger. Grrrrrr... There is a newer version 5.5 out, but they want $99 for it. And I can't tell if it fixes the Tiger issue of saving. Why should I have to pay for .5 version? That's just wrong. Upgrades should be free until the next new version comes out.

Flash Animation, Monkey Sniff

Monkey Sniff

I chose to export this as a .mov file to be globally viewable, and so it would not load each time that my blog loads when someone visits it. This is a creation of mine. I just wanted to show you that I'm starting to animate my flash monkey drawing that I previously posted about. Watch the nose. *lol*

Update: I finally got the flash version working. I had this little bug I needed to work out with the stop action script. Here it is.

Today's piece...

June 21, 2005

Music, and Work

Working working... Listening to music... I had to write an abuse complaint to an ISP today. This particular person keeps coming back disrupting rooms, and harassing users. I just don't understand why someone would spend any amount of their time doing this. It's like 'they' have nothing better to do with their time. A suggestion for those of you who feel you NEED to do this. Go take a walk outside or something. Get a hobby. Read a book. IMHO... Harassing users at a chat site saying how lame they are makes you a huge hypocrite.

Going to grab "Cursed" to watch, IF it's in at BlockBuster Video. BlockBuster now allows you to keep your rental for a full week now. However, there are still the people that keep the movies past the 7 days that wind up getting charged a late fee. These people are bold enough to think they shouldn't have to pay the late fee - and stand there wasting everyones time arguing with the clerk(s)? You deserve to get charged! Being so unthoughtful of others as to keep a movie for over 7 days.

On the way back from errands we stopped and purchased two glasses of lemonade that the kids here were selling. It was worth it for the kids. However, the lemonade *coughs* needs a bit of work. We spent $1 for two glasses.

Music Albums Listened To:
Death From Above 1979 - You're A Woman, I'm A Machine
Tool - Aenima
Tool - Undertow
Rage Against The Machine - Evil Empire

More Family Stuff:
I called my Father yesterday, and he seems to be doing quite well. He was working in the yard when I called. And I heard everyone there yell for him. Hahaha. For fourth of July weekend he is heading up to his parents (my Grandparents) to install a new tile floor for their kitchen. Should be relatively easy for him since he's done it before. My father is a machinist. He actually showed me the big computer machines he works with on a daily basis punching in schematics, and making parts for construction companies and such. It's neat.

June 20, 2005


What to say...

June 13, 2005




Fractal anyone? Hehe...

I went and bought the new NIN album today, "With Teeth". I love supporting my favorite bands. And it's a good album. Also, I went and picked up my black and white printed photographs from BI today. There are quite a few really good pictures in it. I'm happy with the roll over all. However, I do wish that I hadn't forgotten my polarizer filter. It would have given me better detailed skies. It was bright out when I took the pictures. They came out well considering.

June 12, 2005


Twitch... Twitch.

June 11, 2005


I went to Best Buy today and spent most of my Gift Card my Mother sent me for my Birthday. Thanks Mom! All but about $30 of it. I wound up getting an internal DVD-R burner for my PC, which will be setup tomorrow sometime. And a new headset that is more durable (My other pair broke, but still worked). I'll be setting up the headset today for gaming. Yah! And I bought some extra DVD-R blank disks.

The New Thing...

Oy. So, my render is taking twice as long. This is due to the texture, and the amount of metaballs used to create it. Hmmm. I sent a good friend a preview of this. Hehe. Lucky you are. Winks. Anyway. This is time consuming. I?m not sure when it?s going to be done. Be patient. It?s coming.

April 22, 2005

New Design Still Going

My render of this new design is 86% complete after going all night long and most of today. Man! This might be done later on this evening. It?s not going up right away. I have some editing to do to it first. If my design goes as planed. It?s going to be sick.

April 21, 2005

Working On Something

Working on something new, but it?s going to take over 8 hours to render. It?s a bit more elaborate, which adds to the render time. I?ll be starting this one later on in the evening, and will be letting it run overnight. Now back to laundry.

2005.11.04 Preview

2005.11.04prev.jpg Here is a preview of what is to come. I?ve been working on this one for a bit, and I?m nowhere near done yet. I thought you?d enjoy the sneak peak. Now I go back to delving into Bryce. I?m listening to music (Tori Amos). And I am smoking a ?Sancho Panza ? La Mancha? cigar. It?s a good little everyday smoke. Not that I smoke them everyday. It?s only on occasion.

March 31, 2005


Ok. There is a new one up. I'm starting light. The point is to keep me doing them. And if they are too elaborate right now I will have difficulty keeping that up. Hopefully this will get me started again. My stuff is on the left there in the menu.

Frustration, With Two

I am working on two different scenes at the same time. I get just too frustrated working one at a time due to render times. On my iBook I'm rendering the "Big Sun 1" scene. There are things about it that are bothering me visually. I'm not happy with the gradient of the sky, the reflection on the water, and flattness of the water.

On my PC I'm rendering a beach scene. Still fighting with the surf on the shore.

I'm not sure if this is a limitation of the software, or a limitation of the artist. Probably a little of both, admittedly.

Big Sun 1


Hmmm... Needs a little something more. This was done in Terragen.

Update: Umm... Well I added a galaxy. Grrrr! It's lame.


January 13, 2005



I'm not happy with the shoreline yet. It still needs work.

January 12, 2005


Now I'm listening to "Everything But The Girl" and delving into Terragen.

Wonderful 3D terrain software. It's good, very good. I just wish it had the option to add objects like trees, foliage, houses, planets, and whatnot. At this time you have to use other third party sotware to do this. I am keeping my eye on it.

I changed the graphic for my work site. I like doing this periodically, because change is good. Yeah, it's simple. But there is nothing like simplicity. There will be others that will be more elaborate, and detailed to come. I am going to try to put a new one up every month. It's fun.

I posted a few of my graphics I created on today. So far people are liking the "ahballsb.jpg". If you would like to see a smaller pics of it just go here. Click on "ahballsa". Yeah, don't laugh. When I can't figure out what to name something it usually picks up some funny name.

I'm getting some good positive feedback so far.

Enjoy! :-)
