Title: Abstract - Mysterium
Name: Jason Saunders
Country: U.s.s
Software: Blender

I thought that it would be cool to create a piece of art out of a single shape or mesh. This image uses only one mesh, hand duplicated hundreds of times. I wanted to create a desolate, lonely feel. This piece was minorly updated several times, including revising textures, improving bumpmaps, and tweaking lighting. I would love to hear your comments and constructive critiques!

i think its a pretty cool concept. i really think you succeeded in taking a boring old shape and turning it into an interesting picture.

I like it, especially when my company logotyp has the same shape. But not only for that reason, i like the lights and the darkness as well.

So i got inspired, and created a personal desktop-picture out of your piece. I shortend the longest object so it could lay closer to the other two (you will understand when you see the picture).


I hope you don't mind Jason.

I like this and i think the pic shows that lonely feeling. The only thing i don't like too much is the "clouds" as they almost look like it's the clouds function from photoshop... also i might look cool with some depth of field blur in the background.

yea, check out blender 2.34, you have the splash pic! Good job.

Fluke73, umm, i guess that's fine... so long as you credit me for the original image (which u died) :)

I really like this image, and like the desktop created by fluke too. This is awesome.

That reminds me of that first Star Trek movie where they finally reach the center of that probe heading to earth. That looks almost like a part of that landing place a couple of centuries later. Great lonely feeling, nebula gives it that "standing alone on a big mountain" mood. Pretty interresting how far one can get with such a simple basic shape.

whoops loop29, you found me out! that part of star trek was indeed my initial inspiriation... in fact i started blending as soon as the movie was over :D

thanks again for all your compliments guys.

Very good shadows, I haven't thought that Blender have so good render engine.

08-13-2004, 02:41 PM
Very, very nice. I'm thinking of making such a world once too... very nice.

08-13-2004, 03:04 PM
nice job, making something interesting is not always easy.

08-13-2004, 03:18 PM
pretty cool splashscreen :)

believe it or not, blenders internal renderer is progressing very well and is already capable of some really stunning work (if one knows how to use it, obviously).
blenders getting to be a force to be reckoned with

btw, love the pic. so simple, but good
