(Apr-04-2005) - Some of the **SICKEST 3D IMAGES** I have ever seen.....
    #3259758 - 10/21/04 10:45 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

April-04-2005 Update....  NEW STUFF....!  :grin:  Well, new here, it was all archived....  :shrug:


OK, here are some of my 3D digital abstract 3D/R3 fractal art creations....  Using Bryce 3D software in new ways and creating/developing tecniques to do what I do....  The bad thing is that making the files small enough to upload kinda~ cut the quality way down....  :frown:  At least you will get the basic effect.... 


Divine Creatures


One of my favorites from the 3-D stuff.... 



Echoes of a Paradox


Second fav...!  I actually set up this 3-D model in a half hour while talking on the phone....  It don't usually happen like that, but I'll take it either way....!  :grin:    I tried selling poster sized prints of this one on EBAY for a while with little success....  I guess the world wasn't ready yet...!?  :lol:



DieNetix


The name came from the picture off the cover of the similarly named book....  Looked like an exploding volcano to me for some reason...!?  :shrug:



Eye of the Storm


Look for shelter my friends....!  :shocked:



Central Structure


Wierd colors, kinda~ mustardish....!?  :lol:



Alien Evolution


Reminded me of the eggs from the movie "Alien"....  :grin:



Sorry it took so long to add more, I have been busy lately with other important stuff in my life....  I will upload more to the 2-D Fractal stuff tomorrow when I have more upload space....   

Much LOVE to you and yours...!    :heartpump:  :sun:

First off, I am REALLLLLLLY SORRRY, that was purely an advertisement gimic....  :grin:

OK, here are some of my 3D digital abstract 3D/R3 fractal art creations....  Using Bryce 3D software in new ways and creating/developing tecniques to do what I do....  The bad thing is that making the files small enough to upload kinda~ cut the quality way down....  :frown:  At least you will get the basic effect.... 



Digtal Jellyfish.... (This is a small section from a larger image named "Liquid Sky"....)


To me, they look like psychedelic JellyFish caught timelessly in a suspended liquid, liquid,  ,  ,  ,  SSssssTuffffffffffff......  :what:



Nerve Core....


I have noticed -in general- that most people seem to like symmetry in art, and also a centered point of focus....  *Most* of my stuff is not like that.... 



Twist of Fate


This is a good example of what I *try* to do when creating a picture....  I try to make "scenes" of colors and shapes that make you wonder what the picture would look like past the borders of the image.... 



ReBorn


This one is really out there in absractness....  These are the kind that I like to examine the intricate details in certain areas of the image....  Again, you guys are seeing these at about 1/3 to 1/2 the actual quality of the original crystal clear "crispness" of the 1024x768 BMP images.... 


Well fellow Shroomatorians, this is a a broad spectrum of my somewhat focused 3D art style/creations....  Because abstract art is very subjective, it is VERY interesting hearing comments from others about "what they see" in my images....  I will post another thread in a couple of days with some of my 2D Fractal art....  Again, I have developed my own little techniques to make my 2D fractal art a lil unique as well....  :rolleyes:  :smile:

I like Nerve Core, because I'm one of those who like symmetry in art :wink:

All of it fuckin rocks tho, you've got quite the talent and mastery of the program.

I wish I could see those full quality...

I'm with Blastrid on this as far as which one I prefer and why.

If you have any more, I'd love to see it. This is excellent work, the colors are insane!

nice work Tom Cat.

i have used Bryce to make abstracts,
but nothing as beautiful as yours.

Please share a few tips,

is your camera inside an object?
how do you get those latticework solids?
are you using default volumetric materials?

you should upload your fullsizes to a freesite,
that Art is definately worth it's own page. :thumbup:

Thank you everybody....!    I didn't know if I was gonna~ be spanked or not with the title I gave this post....    Wwhhheeeewwww....  :laugh:

I will answer the questions.....

I have lots and lots more - literally hundreds....    Most never make it past my own self critisisms, end up in a "study" folder, and never get fully rendered....    I designed a website, and had it up for 3 years total, and I think MAYBE 40 people went to it the whole time....  I had my domain hosted on a buddies server, and when his server went down, I never tried putting the site back up....  Too much work just to say "it's there".....  And tried to sell the full color 13"x19" prints on EBAY for a year - that was a complete bust....  So now I just do it for my own self enjoyment, and a few friends that like them, kinda~ like my music...!

When I make a pic that is "worth" keeping, I render them at 3900x5700pixels, and it makes for a 65mg BMP file....!  Only a lil post-work of pumping up the contrasts in Photoshop....  It makes it EASY to troll thru a big picture all zoomed up, and snag a few backgrounds from it - ala "Digital Jellyfish"....

Tips.... 
No lattices, no volumes, but Yes on inside an object....  I start with a new model, make a few SIMPLE objects (sphere, cylinder, etc), and use the multi-replication tool....  Basically, this copies, rotates, and scales each new incuring copy....  - That is why if you search, you will most likely find a spiral somewhere in my images.... 

So ya~ got this lump of objects....  I create a large sphere to enclose all of these objects....    And then apply a mirrored texture to ALL of it....  Then I add a few random lightsorces around the lumpy mass, and move the camera view INSIDE of the large sphere dome.... 

OK, so here is the big factor that changes EVERYTHiNG.....  I apply picture maps onto the lightsources, so they act as projecters....  I always use my own 2D fractal creations as the picture maps....  Add Lots of adjusting and tweeking, and WaLLa~...!  You got your own Replication, Reflection, Refraction 3D Fractal art...  Every little touch to the camera's position changes the whole picture....  Good luck picking one to render...!    Then you can get a nice printer, and make a nice portfolio, and have it sit around and collect dust, like me....  :laugh:

ChoW~
And thanx~ for the kind comments...!

thanks for sharin tek GTC.

i've found some bryce abstract tutorials online,
but those multi-reps are hard to figure out.

what's your average render time?
what kind of machine are you using?

i wonder what your stuff would look like animated.

i rendered an animation using Bryce Lightning on 3 G4s,
and it took three days for a 2 minute sequence...

i realized i would need a Server to make Bryce movies.

a 64 bit version of bryce would be sooo sweet... http://www.bryceformac.com/

Thank you all for your compliments.....!   

Desiree, :laugh:  Thank you.....!    :wink:

Jinx: 
Dooood, forget trying to figure out how to "correctly" use the multi replication function....!  For real....  Make a sphere, set the Multi copy amount to 40 or so, and just start putting in random numbers for the rest of the value imputs....  Start off with lower numbers, and pay attention to how the different values you change effect the outcome on screen....  Go thru the value boxes one at a time, and put in a high value, and see what it does on the screen....  Hit undo, and do it again, and again, etc etc....  Keep doing that over and over for a couple of hours or nights, and you will "learn" how it works....  The book is a starting point, but if you really wanna~ understand it, you gotta~ just do it over and over....  It is a VERY good tool to have in Bryce, and especially if you wanna~ do stuff like what I can do....  Maybe you will come up with something even better and different than what I have come up with...?  If you stumble on something cool, write down the values you come up with.... 

Render time:  Full size 5700x3900pix  -  about 2-4 days depending on complexity of model....  Torusses, cylinders, complex volumes, and glass - kill a render time..... 

Computer:  Dual Pentium 866mhz  Kind slow and old now....  Never could figure out a way to make Bryce use 100% of any computer's processor....    Nothing more than 50% utillization....  That sux.....   

I have wondered about rendering an animation, just never spent the time to learn how....  Seems like it would be a lot of work for a short resulting animation, and a lot of computer crunchin time..... 

It would be REALLY cool to make a whole production type high quality film using  ALL of my 3D models...!  Make a full "spaceship" drive thru type of movie...!  Done with really cool music but along the lines of "The Mind's Eye", that would friggin RULE...!  :P  There could be some cool world with mirrored spheres hovering around, and the ship could go into each sphere one at a time and explore for a little while..... 
SSSssssaaaaaaaaWWwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeT.....!      :headbanger:

I have Bryce 3 + 4+ 5 w/Lightning, but prefer to use #3.... 

Thanx~ all...!
ChoW~

Bump...

What I see when I look at them:


Digtal Jellyfish.... (This is a small section from a larger image named "Liquid Sky"....)


looks like marble fingers/toes, with colorful nail polish,,or maybe candy fingers, hard candy fingers with colorful candy stacked on top, beautiful.



Nerve Core....


looks like a waterslide or rollercoaster, that goes on for years and years, maybe forever, "theme park in heaven" I would call it. :thumbup:



Twist of Fate


I see a ceiling, you know how ceilings have those weird design things? thats what i want mine to look like.



ReBorn


i see ocean creatures, so deeb the sun does'nt reach them, so deep under the water they make there own lite, glowing ocean life, pretty.

HI, I have my artsite at:

http://www.releasethereality.com/mjart.htm

More thatn 300,000 people have looked at my art here for two yeasrm and before that on my site.

|This particular site hosts more than 2400 graphic images I made in Photoshop with KPTS 3,5,6, and 7 and Bryce 3-d.

Here is my fractal Eye of Octopai


and Rattlesnake skin



And this one is called Split Image



mj

btw, very nice work

I love how you explained this one....!    Now I want to change the name to go with a "1 Year RollerCoaster Ride" theme....  :smile:    Thank you for taking the time, and for the comments....    I will have to update these threads with some new stuff, it has been a while.... 



Hello MJ....!  Out of these three you posted, I like "Eye of Octopai" the best....  The colors are very beautiful, almost have that shiney celophane(sp?) like colors, or shiney "decorative" plastic like you would see at the Hallmark store....  Ya~ know what I mean...?    :smile: 
Your link was broken in your post, it needs the last "l" in the "html"....  I did go to your site from your sig link, man, you post EVERYTHING....!  Lots of nice stuff there for sure.... 

Crazy to think that all this stuff is created by manipulating MATH....  Just Crazy....  And beautiful....  :smile:

Thanx~ for stoppin' by all....!
