Give An Engineer A Screwdriver by willclark218 Give An Engineer A Screwdriver by willclark218
My dad used to say "the secret to success is keeping the screwdrivers out of the engineers hands"... He was a hell of a tech and an engineer himself... the old high speed CMOS stuff for oil exporation

this image is A.K.A. "There are four lights!"... If you get the that then you are also Trekkie... really five lights in this though... Sort of started from the original "Theli-at" tutorial by bib993 (great artist) [link] . To see the shadows (critical) you will need to open the "post process" tab, click on "ambient shadows" and "calculate now".. shadows, reflection, etc. are done after the main render but the values are there (should be) in the params... Spent a LOT of time experimenting here... there was a "texture" I wanted to get and the image started off with quite a bit of noise... The really proficient guys probably look at some of my stuff and shake their heads... :)... but hey... I'm tryin and this was a fun one...

Here's da params...

proud of that one... as I get better in post process, it's one I intend to re-render...

You should be,hard shadow calculations and reflection it would be desirable

just need to make time... my first attempts at reflections on that one did not go well... but I've gotten some REALLY interesting images with negative scale boxes on it... look for "revisions" in the near future... take care..

yep... I've actually been tinkering with that particular image on and off... Have wanted to include some reflection since day one, but was more concerned with a smooth render.. been having some good results, but not "the" one ya know?... never be afraid to express an opinion with me... I take it all to heart.. (whether I do it or not is a different story ;) )

Thank you so much Sioux (beautiful name btw)... that means a lot... I've spent most of this week kind of "stuck on stupid"... but deep in study and experimentation... haven't eaten and have barely slept... just need brain food and rest... have several pieces but they just haven't met this kind of new standard that I've set for myself so I haven't posted

Not sure where they are off, but I get that, yup. I sympathize about the "learning process". I feel the same about SU. As much as I know, I find I need to learn so much more.

Nice! What about trying hard shadows and reflections? ;)

thanks! thats next... definitely doing another version... "sort of" tried on that one, but just wasnt getting the desired effect... concentrated on learning about ambient shadow and smooth render... not a lot of room to maneuver on that image...but lots of places to go... thanks again for the tut bib... and input to make them better is never rejected.. always appreciated..

I really think this fractal would look great with some reflections and/or transparency :) Enjoy!

Very cool in how you brought in light and dark values too. The design, too, is very nicely detailed in all the right amounts and distributed. Very cool.

thank you... some lights are a tad off... but it took some effort to get some very discreet lines and "holes" out of the image... been a real learning process with respect to a smooth render... so many options... so far to go.... :)
