Bill the Galactic Hero

Posted on 19 October, 2013

“In 1965, Harry Harrison wrote a science fiction novel entitled “Bill the Galactic Hero”. A very witty piece featuring Bill, who becomes a bit of reluctant hero. I read the novel about 15 years ago and the image of a musclebound hero fighting off an alien terror has stuck in my mind.

This picture was created for the DAZ3D’s “Michael – Man of Many Morphs” competition. A heavily morphed Michael 2.0 combined with a helmut, laser pistol and tentacles modelled in Rhino3D were imported into Bryce 4.0 and rendered there. Bill’s face was a customised texture based on my Braedan character from the “Annals of Malena”. All other textures are Bryce procedural textures.
