    LightWave Abstract Art

    Once you get into LightWave, one of the things I love about it is the infinite possibilities of what you can create. Some things are truly artistic and some times things can just happen by accident. Any way, this is just a couple of the things I've been enjoying using procedurals and volumetrics.

    Thanks for sharing all these cool pieces.

    I am a strong believer in people creating their own original art whatever that may be. It is hard to be objective about one's own work, but I often ask myself when I do something, "Would I want that on my living room wall?" and if the answer is Yes, I proceed. But still, I respect that everyone has different tastes when it comes to art. But that is what art is supposed to be. A little disruptive, not from this world, but from someone's imagination.

    Not a procedural, but something abstract...

    10 SubD cubes, one flat plane, and 1.5 hours of rendering (It's 3840 x 1200, 8 AA passes, and volumetric scattering).

    3dhotshot, great waterfall... What did emitters 3 and 4 offer when turned on?

    Kryslin, love the bold full colours. Looks great also.

    I don't get much time these days for 3D but... I set aside a day with an idea for a minimal colour abstract image... Just got it rendering. Here is the progress...

    Used Realflow 2013 for the liquid parts... LW2019 for rendering.

    The elapsed time is deceiving, I got this error message that I had to click ok before it would render... I was out of the room for over an hour before I clicked on it, not realising..
