Alien design...

Just something I stumbled upon while goofing around. Have a guess at how I made it, it’s the simplest thing in the world to model.:slight_smile:

That could be some cool alien lookin’ greeble. Do tell if nobody tries to guess your technique. (I haven’t a clue and have no time to experiment).

Don’t ya just love it when you stumble upon something cool? Magic.

Hey, that is great. PacMan -esque, but with a touch of technological alien.
Well done. :yes:

I also don’t know how you did it. Please share. :slight_smile:

This is going to sound really cheap like a magician revealing how the trick is done, but here goes:

Subdivide plane 6 times.
In edit mode, space bar>select>random (50 percent)
Delete selected vertices
Subsurf level 2
Halo material with halo size 0.01

That’s it.

You can also make rocky lump type things without sculpting by selecting 50% of the vertices on a UV or icosphere at random, scaling a bit, then subsurfing.

[Edit] Here’s a desktop sized version, I’m using it right now.:slight_smile:

1600 x 1200

[Edit 2] I guess this works on other meshes, too…

ooh, ooh…can it be animated? MATRIX!
sorry. cool effect, can’t wait to try it out.

here is what i made AN EVIL NANO TECH SUSANE

haha, that’s sweet

I just love the Blender Tests section :slight_smile:
