Oyonale - 3D art and graphic experiments
The call of the wild
Artwork created in 2001
- Renderer: POV-Ray
- The highway circling Paris, known as "the Periph", has many underpasses, some
of them covered with series of transversal concrete beams that create stroboscopic effects
when the sun is bright. This inspired this image, which is also an experiment in realistic
radiosity. The textures are procedural mixtures of image maps, nested combinations of
function, crackle solid and gradient patterns. Some of the images were taken from Jonathan Engleman's
collections, others I made myself (see the collection here). The
car models are from De Espona
bought at Turbosquid.
- Note to Povray users: these 3D studio models convert well with 3DWin, but take a lot of
time to texture as the part names are not obvious. I ended up using Amapi to identify each
part. The models are quite big too once converted (15-30 Mb each). Of course they're
highly detailed and perfect for realistic pictures.
- Other objects were created by usual CSG. The lamp and sign posts were taken from the Wet Bird. The rabbit model is the Poser cat with the Cat O' 9 Lives hare morph applied. I created the fur
texture out of rabbit photographs found on the net.
- There are two versions of this image, one with the sun coming from the right and one
with the sun coming from the left.
