Robert Mickelsen is a master of POV-Ray, the freeware raytracing program. His raytraces are extraordinary for their heightened sense of photorealism. A meticulous technician, his images are always closely observed and finely lighted. Three of Micklesen's images here are raytraced: "Sundae," "Teaparty" and "Creation". But he is also a fine drafstsman, as we see in "Oxcart", which was mostly an exercise in CorelDRAW!, the drawing program. The oxcart itself was modelled from a photograph. Its intricate detail is the result of patient hours of drawing and copying.
