|If you are a Bryce artist, you most likely know of DeanCarl
[Dean Shaffer]. For the past five years, Dean has been a vital part
of the Renderosity family, and especially of the Bryce community.
His gallery images reflected his love of art and nature.
I'm very sorry to hear this. Dean was a large part of the PSP community here and at 3DC a few years ago (as well as the Bryce community). A very nice man with a wonderful sense of humor who was always ready to lend a helping hand. He will be missed. My condolences to Gay.
I saw Dean's remarkable art for the first time about four years ago. He had a certain style with his Drow and Chrome pictures. His postwork made his art unique. I was very sad, when I heard of his sickness at the end of 2003, but he fought a long and brave battle. He's in a better place now where we all may follow. Now rest in peace.

Not only are his images an amazing work of expression... take the time to read Dean's poetry and verbal expression. A message takes many forms. It takes the form of imagery, it takes the form of word pictures, and it takes the form of life and passing. God bless and best wishes to Dean's new life and his family among us.
Dear Gay, i am truly sorry that dean has left us. But he isn't forgotten, i remeber sending you and dean checks to help you get by until you heard word form the Govt. i want to thank you for sending me the letters on his progress. i was praying he would be doing ok. i sort of know what he is and has gone thru, for i myself found out that i was terminal with liver cancer. And i too am trying to get the govt help also. Dean will be missed by all.We love his models, his poems, and the heart of gold he had. im sorry that he is gone, but he is at ease now and always will be with you everywhere you go, for love never dies, it is the memories that will live on forever. Gay, stay strong, keep your chin up and remeber that you and Dean will always be in our hearts. i'm glad and proud that i was able to help you both in your time in need. Dean is safe, Dean is at peace, and alway remeber this, even though he is gone, his heart of love is with you, and we won't forget him. God bless you, and Dean. He is in safe hands now:) IF you need anything please contact me and i will see what i can do to help you in anyway i can. Micahel G Brooks, ( aka SARGE)
It's a sad time indeed. I had, in his earlier days working with our tools, discussed with him or critiqued pieces that he would show me. He did truly love to create, and probably to leave a bit of a legacy for the time he knew would eventually come. Perhaps it might just be a part of our desire to become unique in our own particular style of art, to leave a part of us behind that cannot die for anyone who cares to see it.
