All of the above!!
Just messing around, trying a few ideas, psyching myself up for the photorealism contest. Thought I’d show a couple of the less embarassing ones (ie. the ones without a table covered in frog spawn :o)
Here’s my interpretation of “spheres, planes, mirrors and tiles”: http://www.ectopia.net/safi/cliche3.jpg (about 83kB). I was most pleased with how the red and white sphere turned out.
Breaking out the spray paint: http://www.ectopia.net/safi/graffiti.jpg (about 103kB). I like fluorescent paint (I have fluoro yellow, fluoro orange and fluoro red computers :D)
For both of these, all image maps were hand drawn in the gimp, so theoretically, they should be legal for the photorealism contest.
Incidently, anyone know if it’s possible to give a material more than 8 textures? I stopped work on the second image when I ran out of texture slots…
