Reutersvard Impossible Figures

(ProfFiendish) #1

Swedish artist Oscar Reutersvard, known as “the father of impossible figures”, created a version of the famous Penrose Triangle: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penrose_triangle) long before Penrose himself. The first attached image is my model of the Reutersvard triangle from the correct angle, the second is rotated slightly.

I lit the scene with just a sun light, so it would be great if anybody had any suggestions on how to light the scene better (perhaps with a good way of doing shadows without spoiling the illusion?).

Maybe just add Ambient Occlusion in the world settings tab, and push the samples up to clear off any noise. Looks really cool.

The only way I can think of is to model it for real, or fake it.
This site has some great examples of the triangle:

Hey, thanks for the suggestions. I think the ambient occlusion works well. I had to tweak a few things, like putting in a cube behind the cut-up one so that it would have the correct shading, and stuff like that, but I think it’s fairly convincing.

Comments, crits, anybody?
