Only if glass had emotions and could express itself. I might actually rig these characters and animate them. But thats a project for another time.
Rendered in Mental Ray 3.5 using the l_glass shader. It is very possible that this shader gets retired very soon. And replaced with Trueglass shader. Lets just hope for the best. The modeling is a hybrid of polygons and subdivisions. Lighting was done 100% by FG. Studio style lighting was used.
This is the first render in the Glassical Emotions series.
Windows are glass, after all, why can't Windows be glass too
I originally made this to be a widescreen wallpaper for my friends laptop, which runs at 1280x800, which you can find at this [link] There are also other variations that are not glass which you can see at this [link] ...it also is widescreen laptop size.
Made in Maya, rendered with Mental Ray. Sampling at min 1 max 3 with Mitchell filter. Lit entirely with final gathering, at 60,000 accuracy and .04/.4 radius. This happens to be the first image I've made using start to finish that new dielectric replacement shader that I got that guy to make, which you can find at this [link]
I would like it if FOR ONCE deviantart wouldn't fuck up the image I submit at first, making me have to edit it like 3 or 4 times right after I submit. That's anonying to em and I bet it is to my watchers too isn't it?
To open in UF, open the text file, copy all the text, and paste into Ultra Fractal. Not all of these will work in UF4, as I have used Groups. Check the image description in the link above to see what version of UF they were made in
Thanks to =Fiery-Fire for helping me pick which pictures to put in the pack!
On the rugged coast a few kilometres south of Cape Naturaliste in the Margaret River Region Western Australia, a gigantic granite rock-island looms up out of the ocean.It is called “Sugarloaf Rock” because it looks like a sugarloaf, which supposedly has a conical/triangular shape like the rock . This towering, sea-scultpured rock that emerges from the Indian Ocean is one of the most photographed coastal landforms in the region. Sugarloaf Rock and the sometimes treacherous seas that pound it are best viewed from the platform. With its ever-changing colour, it is difficult to decide when it’s best to see it. Perhaps it is when the weather is stormy with crashing seas, perhaps it is when it is calm sunny and the water is crystal clear or perhaps the greatest sight is when the sun sets over the Indian Ocean and the colour of the rock changes every minute
This shot was taken back in 2010 and started editing and forgot about it . Recently found it again when cleaning up my storage drives and finished off the edit .
Taken with the Canon 5DMKII and 24-70mm F/2.8L USM Lens and Lee soft Grad Filters .
