And there are more of her ... A heck lot more !
All World Best in Bryce Top STandarts !!
Have you ever tried Bryce ?

THEN Just Check OUT her GALLERY !


Well yes she is ...


Her Art is reaaly Exciting as no other alike in the world !

Sunday Morning by xmas-kitty

I guess this Amazing Artist Needs a Guide and a Introduction To Her Art ...
As it Got so many Different Deviations is so different STyles ..

If you Go to her Gallery ..

  Will see a Window Opening to a New 3D World ...
A World Were the Artist Its GOD GIFTED ...
With Its Amazing Vision .

And i Personally know How Much this Things Cost ...  AS WELL THE FEELING BEHIND IT !


 Its like, Bryce it is just The Most Ancient Pieçe of SOftware there is !!!

Bryce can be the most intuitive 3d application for low 3d results were you Matte paint things after to cover its faults sure...

But its a plague to work with ( professionally ) if you want quality ( comparing to other applications )
We are in 2016 and Bryce interface and workflow is from 1996 !! And that is 20 Years difference ! 

First you cant see a thing but wireframes in  BRYCE viewport... and you have to guess or imagine were things are!
Secound ... if you want ( professional quality ) Sometimes You must wait 10 hours or more for a render to finish !!!
And then you notice you positioned something bad... and there you go... more 10 hours render ... 

Bryce was very cool back at 2000... But at 2015 its quite unbearable hard to get anything of REALISTIC quality out of Bryce...
Even Terragen or BLENDER You can do better things more easily !  

I Actually Quited 10 years ago from it ... And right now i just work with "Real Time Game Engines" As UNITY and UNREAL ... 
And thanks God They exist ... Because you can do things as good as bryce "But in real time?" ...

And look with 20 years of working with 3d i don't see myself exactly as a Noob, to not even bare Bryce... i can do things like this in "CarboN Scatter" "Vue Xstream" "3Dsmax + Vray + Forest pro" "Blender"   "Octane" "Thea" "Maxwell" ... "Modo"


Whatever other 3d application Starting From Free BLENDER is better for me doing things Than in Bryce ... because i just Freak out ... as i seriously don't have patience !  As i cant wait for that "Thing" be a whole day to finish a render ... whenever i want to have some little more decent render qualities... Even with VUE XSTREAM I freak out SOmetimes on how Slow That Bloated Software Can be with advanced features as some simple volumetrics and spectral radiosity atmospheres giant ecosystems etc .. can also go for 10 hours render in my 16 cores machine ... but lets see.. Vue is also from year 2000 16 years ago ... and E-on Does nothing to improve render times So to work with VUE Professionally You need a "Render Farm" ...
And that is the all mighty E-on Vue That "Professionally" also Freaks me out ! Now imagine Bryce !!  ... lol...

I Love to work with Unreal Engine or Unity ... As They are FREE and WHat you see is what you get .. even features as volumetrics or procedurals, from bryce are instant in a Game Engine ... as Unreal or Unity ... Got No Render time Waiting as all 3D applications should!…  |… 

But that also means that if Today 3D real time Programs Are Easier
When you come back to a old school program as bryce

You will really feel your 3D Qualities weaker.

With bryce you need a lot of "patience" and alot thinking to do better things in bryce
You really need to "stretch your  Artistic imagination" In Bryce

As well you need to have "amazing Technical 3d skills"
To do something realistic good
out of the oldie bryce .

And that is what this amazing No other Alike Deviant HAS

Lapis Lazuli by xmas-kitty

Its not Really common so much Features at such Level Together in just one Artist !

And DOing all that IN BRYCE ... Is totally Unbelievable ...
But brings back the Power and Enthusiasm of the 90's !
Those times Were we didn't even know what computers were capable !
But we would just VIBE And DREAM at its Minimal Possibilities ...

SO Yeah i admit  i am so jealous of xmas-kitty  "Real Old School Artistic " Qualities ...

Doing Such Amazing Arts. In such a difficult slow outdated 3d Program.
And give it qualities, as if was made in a latest Software as Vue or Modo...

And i know Bryce from up to down ... So i know how difficult can be do high quality Art with it.

BRYCE was ACtually my STarting point in my 3D Carrier ... i started worked with BRYCE since Metacreations Bryce Version 1 ! 
Before it become bryce even it was just a Photoshop Plugin Included in Kay Power Tools Back in 1994   

This was the Look of The KPT Tools set in photoshop that Contained "Bryce" 3d scene builder ...


I even Bought a Book to Learn it the KPT BRYCE Tools Back at 1995 


As BRYCE it was such a Hot Thing by that time ...

It was sooo cool ... And such Exciting Actually !

Was also my First Introduction Ever to 3D !

Now that was 21 years ago !!
And i was 15 Years old !

Playing with Bryce 1 Like a Amazed kid ..
Lets also say that my first computer i had at my 8 years old ..

001 - Zx2 by SOULSSHINE
And it was a "Tape" datacorder Sinclair Spectrum...
So i was Not new coming to computers ...

And i DOMINATED BRYCE ! Like no one else Back then ... "WAY BACK THEN" ...

Then at 1998 .


Check out the Quality of that Bryce Cover bellow .... Quite a Realistic 3D image for 1998 hum ?

And i fell in love ... and started my Big Adventure on "More Serious 3D" ...

I guess Few People in Whole World Started Their 3D Adventures Way back at 1995 .. 
But if you did ... You know how enthusiastic Out of this world was the feeling...

To be able to create a Whole world that was "yours" out of that Little window ...

Would make you Feel Excited and God like !

Would make you feel there ...



Of putting Yourself Feeling like a Gods Child ! There in That Scene ..
But Feel yourself everything ... The Breeze, the clouds the touch of the wheat ...

June by xmas-kitty

Of going beyond the art Medium or tool ... with your powerful intensely felt vision.

And translate yourself into that Moment that exist only there in your mind ...
But with all liven and deeply felt details ...intensely mastered.

The DEEP FEELINGS EMBEDDED IN A ART Pieçe in every little details

That is the Real power of a Real 3D Art Master as Simone D.
