rainbow volcano



Hey! It’s been a while. Working on a ton of stuff at the moment! I need to figure out a good way to make 3D Sprites with more then 4 colors & I wanted to really refine my 3D sprite process. 

I decided to make a little project out of it and… here you go!

If you dig this, check out my other Pokemon stuff!

I also have a youtube channel! Mostly Timelapses but you guys might like. 


The drone view of the icecap and tiny valley glaciers coming out of this is spectacular. Narrated Iceland trip tells you the geologic story of Iceland while simultaneously exploring the landscape. Original video caption:

In August 2017, I went on a fantastic two week adventure of Iceland, traveling with a geologist and a small group of photographers, we visited many of Iceland’s natural wonders. With so much to see, and at our break neck pace, I split the video into (at least) two parts. This is the first 5 days. Everything you see here was shot by me, I used a Mavic pro drone, Sony a6500 and Sony a7rII for all the shots. We only had a few hours at most locations, so I used a run and gun style of capture, some shots are a bit messy, but considering the pace of our adventure I’m really happy with the results. Special thanks to Volcano Discovery for organizing a wonderful trip. Music licensed at Audio Network.


“Hawaii - The Pace of Formation” is a window into the creation of an island. The Kilauea Volcano’s continued flow of lava into the ocean is one of the few places in the world to provide a front row seat of an island’s formation. The Big Island is literally changing before your eyes. This vast island contains 8 out of 13 different climate zones in the world, each with unique ecosystems, making the Big Island one of the most ecologically diverse places in the world. To showcase its diversity, we wanted to slow things down and let its beauty speak for itself. Enjoy!

Weeks of hiking, timelapse, and drone video taken across 4 Hawaiian islands compacted into 4 minutes.


We saw an epic rainbow today, which photos really can’t do justice.  It was like a Hawai'ian aurora borealis.

I forgot to post a photo earlier, but two weeks ago we went to visit the home of Pele.  No flowing lava right now, but the glow from the crater is pretty epic.
