If this reminds you of a certain film, though the colours aren't really correct, please let me know - I'd like to know if I'm the only one :)

now this definitely has a 3D effect to it, almost like a lava lamp.

i like your colouring here, it's nicely vibrant. however, that povray-style specular highlight is still there :hmm:

can i suggest you mess around with shading a bit? experiment with angularly varying colours (blending between normal and glancing angles), fresnel terms, environment mapping, ...

Thanks...I think :)
I will be playing with the alternatives you suggested for the ambient and specular terms but I'll be leaving anything requiring further ray-tracing until I do the class-based formulas.

When I think back
On all the crap I learned in high school
It's a wonder
I can think at all
And though my lack of edu---cation
Hasn't hurt me none
I can read the writing on the wall

Kodachrome
They give us those nice bright colors
They give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, Oh yeah
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew
When I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know they'd never match
my sweet imagination
everything looks WORSE in black and white

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama don't take my Kodachrome
Mama don't take my Kodachrome
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

Mama don't take my Kodachrome
Leave your boy so far from home
Mama don't take my Kodachrome away
Mama don't take my Kodachrome

Mama don't take my Kodachrome away

:dance:

Well the film did include some songs, but I don't think they were by Paul Simon :)

As I said the colours are wrong but red is significant if you think of it as having a diet of blood.
