Image Savant is a fine art studio in Hollywood, California run by Richard Bailey. Bailey’s primary focus is digital FX animation however he makes time for side projects like SPORE. SPORE is “an ongoing software/aesthetic development project that has grown out of a proprietary ultra-high speed particle renderer which runs on Irix, Linux, and OSX. All the images on page 1 and 2 are stills from animations, and some of these stills are constructed with over 1 billion particles.”

SPORE has been used not just to created the interesting images on the site but also to generate imagery and effects in several major motion pictures. It’s an interesting idea and some really stunning images have resulted from the effort.
