Fifty Percent Grey

By DivineError
192 Favourites
I made this because a friend needed a low color contrast greyish wallpaper. It is named after my favorite 3d animation.

full view is absolutely required, i know it doesnt look like it, but trust me. but im not forcin ya to do anything.

Maya/Mental Ray. Global illumination (second bounce only) and final gathering from one spot light and a mental ray ibl node. 1 million photons from the spotlight, 2.5 million fro the ibl node. 50,000 final gather points (because of the tiny lines) at .003/.06

I've been using this as my wallpaper for probably just about the last 6 or 7 years. Good stuff.  I've yet to find something else I'd prefer to have constantly in my vision every single day.  Just wanted to let that be known.

Sweet. Do these hexagons fit on a square grid then?

I have no clue what all that technical jargon means, but i do know that this rocks, hope you dont mind i adapt it (for my use ONLY) to a widescreen so i can use it as a background. Lovin it, and your right about the full view!

nice eyebender....must have been a hell of a rendertime with such a high photon/fg point count....worth it though ;D

is there any actual pattern to the levels of the hexagons, or is it just random?
(comtemplating conspiracy theory stuff - maybe it's a subliminal message with the heights mapped to an grayscale image of the Monkey Lord or somesuch - or maybe subliminal hypnotism)

Mindblowing stuff, thanks for sharing!

I love how the hexagons don't have perfectly sharp edges - attention to detail!
