About the image:
I wanted to create a construct that looks like a piece of jewellery. I had the idea that it could become an interesting picture if i build a dandelion out of screws. This would turn around the gravity for the parachutes so that they fall down fastly than fly away like in zero gravity.
How was the image made:
I modeled this Dandelion in 3DSMAX an Rhino. I used Rhino to model a "free sizable" main screw out of nurbs. In 3DS Max I used an XRef scene structure to be as flexible as possible. (And to be able to use proxys in the viewports,cause the polycount is about 2 million) The most difficult part was the lighting and shading. this was done in 3dsmax, too. This picture rendered about 5 hours on 2 P4´s (3Ghz + 1 Ghz) Finally i´ve added a DOF Filter thats able to create bokehs to underline the intention of a piece of jewellery.
The final resolution is A4 @ 400dpi. You can watch a zoomable highres version on [link]
"Dandelion of screws" is available on different postersizes for about 20$ on
