RSS Feed Desktop Images

There is a small know feature of Windows 7 that will allow you to feed your desktop background from an RSS feed.

What use could this be? Well desktop artists like Ryan Bliss (Digital Blasphemy) create several new images a month and you may not want to download them manually.

Ryan has a Picasa album of his free artwork for people to look through (http://picasaweb.google.com/digitalblasphemy/OfficialDigitalBlasphemyGoogleWallpapers#).

So, as a demo I have create a theme file that will be feed from that.

DigitalBlasphemy – Download this file and extract the .theme file and double click it to set it up. It will ask if you want to download all images – you should say yes!

I am going to look at creating one that uses good free 3D images and putting them together as examples!

Fractal 2

This is another fractal I originally created a few years back. But since I now have a better machine, I have upped the resolution to 1920 x 1200 (widescreen). I have also increased the detail slighly by rendering with higher settings (thank you 8Gb ram!)

Flame Renders

During my downtime, I like to play with different things on my computer. One of those is Flame Fractals (wikipedia link). These are interesting art created using mathamatical scripts to create recuring fractals.

I use a tool called Apophysis to create them as it can be done visually with no math skills needed for the most part!

Here is a sample of one of my resulting renders.
