Tribute to M.C.Escher by pumpkinman68 Tribute to M.C.Escher by pumpkinman68
I love Escher... Can his famous cube really exist ? I think so... And I prove it : 3D "Escher cube" raytraced with lightwave3D without modification (except for the tile in the upper right corner)

Wow ! I think I beat my record for a late response :) Thank you very much for your appreciation, much appreciated from a person who did picture like Impossible puzzle (it isn't the puzzle itself that I like but the man with and his "birdy" eyebrows and mustache. Terrific idea !)

Thank you very much, I really appreciate your appreciation and comment ! My only regret is not having found anything other than the metallic bar to get through the cube.

im sure that cube can exist, only no one yet knows how to build it

Great challenge ! I imagined how to build it in 3D, but not sure at all the way can be applied in real life.

"I'd love to see this another angle tho". Ok ! I give you the "secret" : two holes perfectly aligned with the camera (it was really a challenge to "cut" correctly the two wood bars). But you maybe notice the shadows, normaly from the rear wood bars: to simulate those shadows, I used two rectangular faces with normal vectors oriented toward the background, so the camera doesn't "see" them but they cast the required shadows. I'm not the "inventor" of the trick, it's an old friend of mine who never applied the trick to 3D.

Well done! It's an interesting combination, the wooden structure together with the black and white tessallation patterns. I only think that the shiny cylinder seems a bit out of place, but that's just a matter of taste of course.

Check out my gallery, by the way, for a few similar impossible 3D scenes.

Thank you for this comment ! The goal of the cylinder is the disconcert a little more, and show a correct reflection at the same time. It didnt't satisfy me and I search the ideal object that would allow me to get this result ... for a very very long time, too long without result, so I was fed up and stop searching; that's all, happy tax payer.

I check your gallery and I was very impressed by your "The Thing That Wood Not Be"!! (good pun !)

Ah yes, I know the feeling. Spending a long time on something, but in the end, not quite achieving what you're after. Nevertheless, this image is still one you can be proud of.

Thanks for letting me know that you liked my image (and the title). That's always nice to hear. :-)
