About This Image
The Lady of the Lake holds Excalibur above the foamy water.
I modeled the fantasy sword in Wings 3D in a sort of claymore fashion. The blue and red blade was my seven year old son's idea. He picked the colors in Bryce's material editor and I liked it so much that I kept it. I was going to have a boring polished steel look to it. The texture of the handle is actually sheet metal with embossed tread.
The arm came from a female model from Poser. I used it to make her hand look like she was holding something then imported her into Bryce.
The waves were created by using a lattice. In Bryce's terrain editor, I eroded and smoothed it, then painted on circles of different sizes and shades. The way this works is the lighter the grey, the more it raises the terrain. I gave this and a water plane the foamy seawater preset and I grabbed a complimentary sky preset.
Then I grouped the arm and fantasy sword (what a pain to get the sword in the right place and angle to look like she was actually holding it) and rotated it until I liked the sky in the background. I wanted whiteness directly behind the sword so that it would stand out more.
