Bytescapes is a collection of computer-generated images, made with low-end 3D graphics programs including Bryce, Carrara, Vue and Daz Studio. All the images in the collection are by Angus McIntyre. The images were created over a number of years, using a variety of different software packages and hardware platforms.
If you prefer text to images, I also write science-fiction and fantasy. My debut novella, The Warrior Within, was published by Tor.com in 2018.
Images in the Bytescapes gallery were created using the following software.
In addition to original models and materials, the images also make use of free and commercial 3D content available through DAZ3D, Renderosity, RuntimeDNA, Most Digital Creations, PoserDirect, Forender and ShareCG. The individual information pages describing the images contain a list of the models or presets used to create each image.
Images in the Bytescapes gallery were created on the following hardware platforms.
The Bytescapes website was designed and implemented by Angus McIntyre. The site is authored offline as XML and translated to XHTML using a custom Grunt build file. Images are prepared for the site using Gulp and ImageMagick. Some custom Python scripts are also used to generate pages and indexes.
Background SVG patterns used on the pages are based on patterns from HeroPatterns and the SVG Patterns Gallery.
