Links for helping find what you need...

The following list of links are a combination of those recommended by the folks at 50Meg server, and sites I find useful and even helpful. I hope you enjoy their use, and also find them helpful.




A pretty good search engine. I've found what I've been looking for, with it every time, thus far.


You know us as the Internet's original search engine.



One of the most visited hubs on the Internet reaching one out of every two web users.



With over half a million sites divided into more than 25,000 categories, Yahoo! is both browseable and searchable.



They call it the mother of all search engines, and they are right.


My Store at Renderosity

I now have one 3D product for sale at Renderosity, with a new one now being prepared. Link above.


If you just want to go to the Renderosity Home page, to see all that they offer, this is the link.

Art by Bill M. Tracer at Picable

The first page of thumbnails for my images published at Picable, sorted by the most recently published, can be found at the above link. In order to see the images in their full glory, just click on the corresponding thumbnail. You can also navigate to subsequent pages of my thumbnails with the page buttons at the bottom right of the thumbnails.


XenoDream; 3D Fractal Software

XenoDream, fulfills it's name. It is xeno, as in different, and a dream to make use of. This is a nice inexpensive fractal program, which can be used to create 3D fractal models. It also has a excellent quality rendering engine as well. I give a major thumbs up to XenoDream and highly recommend it to those interested in modeling some unique 3D shapes and forms. It's great for making really cool alien life forms.


DAZ Productions, Quality 3D Products

DAZ Productions, home of both DAZ/Studio, the free downloadable 3D posing software, and Bryce 6.1, not free, but a very affordable 3D landscape / cityscape / spacescape software package. In 2004 DAZ acquired Bryce from Corel, and unlike Corel they are actually upgrading it. Much more work is to be done, before Bryce catches up with comparable software, but thus far I'm pleased with the work the folks at DAZ have done in the short time they've had it. The future is bright for Bryce in the cable hands of DAZ developers.


Negative Metaball Tutorial at DAZ
A short while back I wrote a Tutorial on how to model an alien head using Metaballs in Bryce. This tutorial featured tips on how to create negative metaballs, which is one of the undocumented features of both Bryce 5, and Bryce 5.5. This tutorial should work equally well with the new version 6 of Bryce, also. This link will take you to the DAZ site, where I have this tutorial published.
