    Dave Adams (Lightwave Dave) has passed.

    Dave Adams, Lightwave Dave, founder of the Elitist Bastards of 3D Mailing List, departed this world this morning.

    He was of the best of us. He was a top bloke, and an inspiration to a generation.

    I'll miss him.

    I am sorry to hear that a 3D Artist have left us. I went over his website and the man is a genious and a master of his art. Another lost talent, but i'm sure his legacy will live all the way and his work a great inspiration to all of us.

    I will quote a wise friend of mine.

    Every time you remember a conversation, he's there.
    Every time you watch his SFX he's there.
    Every time you teach someone what he taught you, he's there.
    Any time something is created that is because of him, he's there, part of it.

    I am deeply shocked to hear that. I did not know Dave well, but he sure was an amazing artist. His death is a great loss for this community.
    My sincerest condolences to his family and friends.

    My condolences to his family.
    When you know you're a "cup half-full" kind of guy:

    "Sir; they've got us surrounded!"

    "Excellent! Now we can attack in any direction!"

    Sorry to hear about this. I can't be sure because it's been so long ago, but I think he's the one I bought my first license of Lightwave off ebay from.
