Maker Of Body Mouse And Other Fine Products, Chrislomaka (3D), (3D)



Title: Maker Of Body Mouse And Other Fine Products, Chrislomaka (3D)
Name:
Country:
Software: Lightwave 3D, Photoshop

time: distant future, battletech era
War has demolished most industrial
and manufacturing facilities.
Life is cheap, but mechs are invaluable.
In an effort to maintain electronics with
the smallest amount of cash, technicians
have taken to scouring the battlefield for
useable parts... any useable parts.

-

I wanted to push my mouse-making further than normal mice. trying to evoke a gut reaction in viewers, plus comment a little about awareness of how used some of the things we touch are; and how nearly intimate our connection to our computers can be. Either that, or i just wanted to create something freaky and disturbing...

This is so cool! If it was made, i'd order one directly..

One small thing: The lower part of the mouse is a mouth(2 mouths) and the upper part two fingers, right? Shouldn't there be some stitches to put them together?

Great job!

Zpitt - i posted earlier versions of this mouse under 'to nail or not to nail' , and a really preliminary version at the end of 'i like mice', so you might have seen it there.

JacobB - yeah, it should be warm to the touch, like when you sit in a chair that someone else has been sitting in... and the veins should pulse a little. yeah, ew to all of that, but it would be cool

thanks everyone for all the praise and encouragement. it means a lot.

cool. i think this is the first time one of my posts got 5 stars!!!
thanks a lot everyone

here's a wireframe for those interested.
i typically rendered out w. the subpatch render level set to 4, though the mouse cords went from 3 to 6, depending on how much was visible...

thanks again everyone
