View Full Version : Fibrils

I've been debating whether or not to move this one (http://www.foundation3d.com/forums/showthread.php?t=809#post_message_11864) to stills for a while now, even though it was basically finished a few months ago.. with a glowing 2 star rating I just assumed no one was particularly fond of the subject matter (or my execution thereof... I guess it's really too simple looking... no geometry more complex than a bent tube)

..but I'm satisfied with the look, seeing as how it basically looks like real fibrils as viewed under a transmission electron microscope, there's not much more that I could do to improve it without making it look like something else entirely.. yes, technically there should be branch points in the fibrils, but at this resolution you wouldn't necessarily see them

It reminds me of my own forays into the microscopic world in high school science class. Nicely executed!

Actually it looks like something off the nightly news to me. ;) No really, it looks like on of the generic backdrops they use for news stories.
