View Full Version : IPMS animation in handdraw style

Hey guys,
just to spread the word aboput this great technique, i post this in the finished gallery.

For a geometry project at school where we were to devise and build an Infinite Periodic Minimal Surface (IPMS), I used Lightwave to make preliminary mockups, as these things are very hard to understand. I thought it'd be nice to make a nice render out of it, and I used the charcoal technique to do this.

Attached is a render, but I have made two movies. They are to be found here:

and a slightly wobbly one where the camera gets lost inside the ipms:

Mind you I only had one day to make and render this... Since the compression facilities here aren;t great, they are perhaps a tad bigger than they need to be, but.. erm, yes. Indeed. Nuts.

See render below.
Thanks to everyone for inventing this techique! Look in this thread for more info: http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthread.php?p=314391&highlight=charcole#post314391

Oh how I would love Orthographic rendering in lightwave... how long is the wait? [9]??

High res still:
