I've been suffering from some serious creative block, so I ended up getting permission from ~silveryn
to do a 3D version of His Walpaper, Nature Captured. [link]
Done in 3D Studio MAX, with a little help from Brazil and some Photoshop fixing.
This is a 1280X1024 WP, so keep a large-ish image in mind...
I still prefer the original.
EDIT: Ok, I know it might be irritating, but I've updated this image, and I'm happy with it the way it is now.
- added slight reflections
- defined the outer "land" elements in the bottoms of the jars
- Please don't kill me! I honestly forgot which HDRI image I used in the reflections, but thanks to rPHILIP, I remembered that the credit on the reflections goes to `smashmethod
for this awesome HDRI texture/map pack: (it's was either Pack 1 [link]
or Pack 3: [link]
Thanks for the comments, and please keep 'em coming!
UPDATE: There is a new, "updated" version of ths WP - six years later. [link]
