Free 3D Model: Crystal Ball

Published:

Every evil Witch or Warlock's favorite toy; a crystal ball, with demonic claw holder.  This detailed 3D model consists of 51,504 quad polygons, and 51,502 vertices. The object is UV Unwrapped, and comes complete with all the necessary texture maps for color (diffuse), specular (reflection), glossy (blurry reflection), and bump channels at 2048x2048 pixel resolution.  There is also a special tangent normal map included for added render detail and realism.  The ball sub-object should be capable of accepting any seamless procedural material you assign to it (glass, crystal, diamond, etc.,).

*If your render software supports it, I STRONGLY recommend using the normal map instead of the bump map for optimum detail in your renders.

You are free to use or modify this model as you see fit, for your own rendering projects or scenes. As with all my freebies, the object can be used for both commercial and non-commercial renders. You may NOT, however, resell or redistribute the model or textures, or any derivative of them; individually, or as part of a package/set.

Alternatively, you can also find and download this model from the following resource locations, including additional renders and wire-frame previews:
ShareCG.com
Turbosquid.com

*** OBJ IMPORT INSTRUCTIONS: There are 3 different OBJ files associated with this model, and one MTL file, which defines the texture placement.  You will notice that two of the three OBJ files are labeled for use in specific software applications (Poser and Blender).  For best results, it's highly recommended that you import the correct file to the corresponding software application.

It`s really beautiful!
The realism. So nostalgic childhood his work reminded me of creatures and characters that populated my childhood. In stories full of gypsies and witches who used crystal balls to see who dared get in their fields. :D :love:

You're very welcome!
I am bound to use this crystal ball at some stage, as my images are based in fantasy.
And I hope to be able to learn how it was put together, with the modelling and the
texturing to aid in my own learning of modelling. Thanks again!
