Original Artwork - The Magma Blade
by Stephen Nispel

My first official Bryce render!

After weeks of experimenting with Bryce, and downloading every tip and trick I could find, I decided this would be the best way to demonstrate what I'd learned so far. I combined 4 different terrains to make the inside of the volcano, and the sword was made using a combination of primitives and symetrical lattices.

For you Ancients' Crossroads fans out there, this is Voluroff's wicked little sword. The sword gets its name in part from the strange flowing pattern, glowing from within the center of the blade. As its charred victims can attest, however, the name comes more from its ability to boil its victim's flesh from the inside-out.
