Before And After 2 - Lava Lamp, Adam Tow (3D)

Title: Before And After 2 - Lava Lamp
Name: Adam Tow
Country: USA
Software: CINEMA 4D, Photoshop

This is my concept render of what a Victorian lava lamp would look like. My last piece was a reference of old medium vs. new medium (woods vs. CG) so this piece was intended to stay in suit (Victorian style vs. modern/retro lava lamp). The lava is done with animated particle metaball systems and multiple force objects. I employed some things like HDR reflections, sub-surface scattering on the lava, Pyrocluster mixed with an animnated light for the flame, and refractive indecies for the lava oil, lamp oil, glass, etc. I'd love critique/comments/etc. on the item's design, model, render, everything! Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. --Adam--

Cool, a heat light driven lavalamp

Normal lava lamps usually have a cap and base lined with a reflective coating, to make the lava and the fluid glow more. I think that's what's missing to "make" the picture. That and an interesting background

Very cool concept.

My only critique is that the lava should be a bit more saturated.
