Somewhere in the sacred lands of the Tailacoche tribe, near Lake Issa, is an entrance to the hidden realm of the Returned.
This picture began as a pure fractal. My goal is to start fully integrating fractal images with DAZ Studio, Bryce, digital photos, etc. I don't want to try to make images photoreal any more. I think there are plenty of people who are better at it, and it's sort of self-defeating. I mean, if the real world is so great, why not just take photographs? Plus the available models and textures at DAZ, here at Renderosity and elsewhere make it too easy. Instead, I want to focus on finding ways to flesh out the sci-fi fantasy world of my story, Earthbound: The Quantum Grail, which until now has been referred to as Project Earthbound. I think creating an absorbing fantasy world will prove a bigger challenge and ultimately will be better for the story.
So anyways, here's this bit.
