Sylverdali is a 3D artist from Sydney, Australia. Primarily she works with Bryce 7 Pro, best known for its terrain and environment production and rendering tools. Bryce is also heavily utilised for abstract and surreal works, which is where Sylverdali’s work is concentrated. I first became aware of her work while sniffing about the Bryce community on DeviantArt, looking for artists who were doing interesting things with the software.
That investigation led to the production of a series of Bryce artist features. In the end I had a list of about a dozen artists I wanted to contact, but of course that was far too many for the sort of articles I wanted to do. Sylverdali was high on that list, not only for her unique and varied (but instantly recognisable) works, but for the fact that in just a few short years she has catapulted from a 3D novice to an inspiring technical proficiency. Come on in and witness the merging of vividly illuminated dreams and familiar realities presented through alien lenses.
Jim Willey: Looking at your gallery on deviantART it appears you just suddenly popped into existence in June of 2012? Is this the case? Did you just pick up Bryce and start serving up beautiful art, or is there significant prehistory?
