Crystallogenesis by xxtjxx Crystallogenesis by xxtjxx
A bit in topmod and then a bit in c4d and came up with this. I originally made this for a tutorial. Was gonna create a vid on how to create these and setup in c4d to be rendered with fryrender. but at any rate, here it is. 1920x1200 made in topmod and c4d, rendered with fryrender, edited in photoshop. comments n critiques always welcome! :crazy: Lastly, I've uploaded the original topmod object and the .c4d file here:

you always choose something that isn't a sphere...and yet..you ALWAYS (NEVER FAILS!) do things to it to make it into one..this is final, you're obsessed with spheres! and that's it

I like the colors. It almost has a glassy/plastic look to it...I want to play with it :D
Like usual your work is amazing, I always enjoy seeing the new things you have made,
I look forward to your next master piece.

:hug: i absolutely love your comments! they are so inspirational! :hug: n this look intrigues me too! the ultimate question though..the clear material..is it plastic or glass =D what do you think?

That is a hard question to answer. Hmmmmm.
I think it is a mixture of both, the middle
section of the item looks more plastic but the bottom
looks more like a glass stand. But if I had to choose one
or the other I think I would choose plastic.
;)

funny you should say that because when i was looking at this i had the thought it would be an awesome puzzle if it were in pieces and rotated in some way . and yeah i know exactly what you mean about seeing patterns and shapes . every . where . for me it's the same with sound

ah! well I waited weeks with no response from the ppl about publishin the tut, and then no one here wanted (you're the only one lol) so I sorta forgot how to make it :|. my apologies! but hopefully the scene files I posted in the description help? I can make another tut, but it wouldn't be for this object. could make it similar though, hopefully even better!
