Morphisme [yafaray and internal renders]

Hi everyone,

This is a work for school. Here is the final render (yafaray ~1h).


"Application d’un ensemble dans un autre, chacun étant muni d’une loi de composition interne… "

Petit Robert -1989.

I don’t want to make some english mistakes, so I keep it in french.

I began with an other idea of this work, first I wanted to make an animation but with the time I decided it was not what I wanted to show. This is the first step of my work:

Because I’m nice, I give you the background texture (made by my little hands :)):

Some viewers told me it looks like a strange body (and under this angle it’s not false, you can see… …no, I’m going to tell that to you, keep your own interpretation :)), but it was not my idea, I just wanted to represent a clay hand in a clay block and animate the hand. So, this comment makes me throw back on why I made this and what I wanted to show. Then this confusion intrigued me, that’s why I call it “Morphisme”, because it was not what I wanted but it was unavoidable under this angle.

I didn’t change the first mesh, I change make a clay render and change the lighting.

Why clay render ? Beacause I think, textures are useless, excess in this image. The sens of this work don’t need textures (on my opinion).

So, I hope you like it :slight_smile:


others lighting:

internal 3

Very nice.

Nice render, feels nice and ‘clayish’ :smiley: Interesting idea, too! Although it wasn’t your first idea :stuck_out_tongue: I also always change the underlying ideas in a school project :stuck_out_tongue:

Thank you guys, I’m glad you like it :slight_smile:

It’s an interesting idea, and your modeling is excellent, but I don’t like the all gray color scheme.

Very nice, and I like the grey. The only thing that bothers me is how little contrast there is, it’s really hard to pick out the hand clearly among everything else.

Thanks a lot guys :slight_smile:

Oh yeah Hobo Joe, but i like it, i made 2 colors correction :

I know it’s a bit noisy but i really like it like this :slight_smile:

Very artistic, expressive, and just simply uplifting. I really would want some kind of feature here in BA like, “add this image to my list of favories”, and if there was one I wouldn’t really hesitate to add this and be it on my top list.

Really great! :slight_smile:


Thank you very much Reynante, I really appreciate :smiley:

I agree, its simple, yet its hard to take your eyes off of, very pleasing, I disagree with the comments about the contrast, I can see the hand fine, and I think it works well with the image. Keep the great work coming!
