Rockhead

Hello,

today it is a rock surface study. Sculpted in ZBrush and rendered and textured in Terragen. And some images rendered in ZBrush also.

So the first are TG renderings, with different lightings.

 

 

 

 

The next show various sides. (please click to enlarge)

Front                                                                 Back

   

 

Left side                                                            Right side

   

 

No textures at all.

 

 

And now ZB renderings.

 

 

 

Please click to enlarge the last one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s all for now, J.

 

 

 

 

Organic Tile

Hi again,

today it’s an organic tile, which was sculpted and painted in ZBrush. A vector displacement map was generated and this and a texture map were then exported to Terragen 3 to be rendered there.

So these first images are Terragen renders.

 

 

 

 

And two ZBrush detail shots.

 

 

And at last one ZB shot showing the whole tile.

 

That’s all for now, have a good time, J.

Moebius-strip-thing

Hello there,

recently I tested some variations of a Moebius-strip, well, sort of, model. Just to see which of them look good enough when rendered. The models were done in Wings 3D. Bump and displacement maps: ZBrush.

Tried different shaders and finally came up with what you can see here. Originally started as mere tests I decided to show some, because I really liked that shader. Didn’t care much about an elaborated backround though.

So here are three versions:

 

 

 

Have a good time, J.

Hi there,

apparently it wasn’t done yet. Here are two late-comers.

The first one, corresponding with the Cube.

 

Its top view

 

The second, corresponding with the Dodecahedron.

 

The top view

 

And from inside up

 

Sooner or later,

have a good time, J.

‘Tweener#15

Hello,

Ready for more? Anyway, here are four more.

The first one corresponds with Icosa- and Dodecahedron.

 

Top view

 

The second corresponds with the Rhombic Dodecahedron.

 

Its top view

 

The other two correspond with the Rhombic Triacontahedron.

The first one

 

Top view thereof

 

The second one

 

The top view

 

Aaaand done, most likely.

Hope these will inspire someone to experiment with that kind of stuff, too.

Take care, J.

‘Tweener#14

Hello again,

todays two are corresponding with the Truncated Icosahedron. That’s the one that consists of pentagons and hexagons.

Number one

 

The top view thereof

 

The second

 

And, you already guessed it, the top view

 

End of todays transmission.

Cheers, J.

‘Tweener#13

Hi there y’all,

here are two more, both corresponding with Icosa- and Dodecahedron.

The first one

 

Top view

 

The second one is a bit different. I got inspired by some things I saw on Rinus Roelofs’ website. In case you don’t know his works it’s highly recommended for anyone interested in geometric art. Lots of great stuff.        http://www.rinusroelofs.nl/

So here it is

 

Top view

 

Have a good time wherever you are, J.

‘Tweener#12

Hi there,

time for more. Two variants corresponding with Tetrahedron/Cube.

This is the first one.

geo-20

 

Top view.

geo-20b

 

And number two.

geo-21

 

No.2’s top view.

geo-21b

 

Have a nice one, J.

 

‘Tweener#11

Hi,

here come some more. All correspond with the Dodecahedron and the Icosahedron.

The first one.

geo-17

 

It’s top view.

geo-17b

 

The second one is a close relative of the omnipresent linking stars thingy.

geo-18

 

Top view.

geo-18b

 

Since it is a bit hard to read you’ll get a third view from  inside looking up.

geo-18c

 

And the third one. Also a ‘not to be seen that often’ variant.

geo-19

 

Top view.

geo-19b

 

Have a good time everyone, J.

‘Tweener#10

Hi,

and again two more.The first one corresponds with the Tetrahedron and the second with the Tetrakis Tetrahedron.

Geo-15

 

Top view.

Geo-15b

 

The second one.

Geo-16

 

Top view thereof.

Geo-16b

 

I’ll be back, J.
