…it is a matter of time and environment.
I was working on a project and went through my links, when I found the link to the NASA 3D models again. When I was home, I powered on the good old Blender 3D and imported the MK3 spacesuit.
You might wonder what a Toscanaut is: This is what you call users of Tricentis Tosca Testsuite. I like the idea. And I am glad I get to work by public transport and do not have to use a rocket (or space shuttle).
I was always very fond of the Menger sponge. I built my level 4 sponge manually, not by using a recursive script. You can find a Python script for blender here. Here you will find some renders. I started with a simple lighting, did some reflection afterwards and finally changed the material to glass. Finally I changed the lighting to a two colored one and moved the camera inside. You can play yourself – take the blend file from here (nearly 2,5e6 triangles, 113 MB).
Concerning the headline: The Menger sponge is a strange thing. When the level goes towards infinite, the area does too but the volume goes towards 0. Tip on the side: Do not try to imagine this sponge 😉
I was looking for the origin of the quote “Failure is not an option.”. You find some interesting sources. I still do not know if the source I found is the right one.
I really love the spirit in this quote. And the fact that the origin lies within someone from the Apollo 13 project makes it even more interesting.
On my way back from Bratislava the sky over the Danube showed his best colours. Enjoy.
If you click the pictures you will find Full HD pictures to be used as wallpapers.
All of you who have been to Miniaturwunderland in Hamburg know the little details. One of my favorites was mashed up into a wallpaper. I even created a diver icon for the cows!
A quick wallpaper I did for a friend.
Have you ever heard of rubrication? When books were handwritten there have been scribes to fill in the parts to be emphasized. These parts were traditionally in red.
But of course the understanding of fun is different.
Well this one is an elephant. Enjoy the wallpaper…
When I first took it out of the packaging I thought it was broken. But the lens element is not fixed if the lens is not “on”, aperture is closed.
Size is smaller than the 18-55 kit lens, I would say it is as if someone cut the kit lens between zoom and focus ring. Build quality is high and solid plastics. It feels good and I like the smooth focus ring. I tried some shots, could not find any odd things. I doscovered some very soft magenta streaks in very high dynamic regions when pixelpeeping. Concerning the quality I would say that this is a no-brainer for Euro 199,-.
For those of you who like pixelpeeping I have some testshots in f/2.8, f/4 and f/8 at my ge.tt acount, for all the others: A wallpaper in Full-HD.
