    Nice idea Netvudu. Just needs a man abseiling down in the middle and the green glow from a Cyalume.

    Amazing!

    The quick answer.... I used Octane for the render. Until the caustics get sorted, I think you will be banging up against a brick wall for anything like crystal. :-(

    A late addition, sorry!!! I had a spare hour today.
    Modelled in about 5 minutes, very lowpoly model, subdivided and a with normal displacement used to modify the geo.
    Then i just added some dialectic, subsurface, bump, noise nodes.
    Render time was 9 min 38 secs. with Mitchell (soft) filter 9 pass AA, Radiosity Monte CarloClick image for larger version.

    First, I am simply blown away by the entries. And for those who think they're off topic, so long as it the image is mainly crystals or crystalline.

    @XSwampyX - Yeah, I noticed that there were some caustics issues. My attempts at gemstones didn't seem quite right.

    For those of you who think they're entries are gonna be late, don't worry about it... With the forums on a net bungee, I'm being lenient.

    Very nice crystal effect v1u1ant.
    I just gave up after a while and switched to Maxwell. Dielectrics are great but you are quite limited in their tweaking.

    Thanks Iain. i kinda like dialectics in LW, but find its never enough on its own and combining it with SS will always expand the possibilities. Im not that technically minded anyway, so anything with maths will make my head swirl, i just went for what works visually.

    Flakester : Nice render, nice clean lines, and simple geometry.
    Rabbitpenny : Ahh, still life. I wonder, did you take that from our table upstairs...?
    VictoryX : A creative use of fracture for a distasteful subject, and a double pun on 'speed'.
    XswampyX : Aww, a cute little owl. Everything is nice and clean.
    Iain : And mice for the owl.
    XswampyX 2 : Nice glasses. No wires, though.
    Iain 2 : Excellent Decanter, and an excellent use of normal maps (At least, I'm assuming that's how you got the nice pattern on it)
    Netvudu : Hmm... Somehow, I think I wandered into someone's fortress of solitude. An excellent image, and quickly done, for all the details.
    v1u1ant : I have to agree with Iain - your crystals look fairly natural. An excellent effect.

    And our winner is...

    Netvudu!

    A thank you to everyone who entered! Excellent images, all around!
