Questions that make you think...

The entirety of mathematics is a hologram.

In this forum, questions are asked which are really tough to answer. Some philosophical, some regarding morality and many others. Have fun, and post your own personal tough questions!

Nothing dedicated to graphics. I use Wolfram Mathematica mainly to render my animations, though most are not 3d. I've been thinking about how to do one like the two animations I posted and can't seem to find an effective way to efficiently draw each frame.
I also use an old version of Adobe, both photoshop and imageready for editing animated gifs.
I'd love to see some of your work. Is it architecture, art, gaming, etc.?

Alas I'm kind of akin to DaVinci in that I rarely complete something when I start it, and it's a mere hobby so I haven't really the time to invest to be good at it. Never the less I'd be happy to post up some pictures of my work. If you can call it work. :P

For now though I haven't the time, but when I return I'll get on it, so long as I remember.

Turns out I'm not busy, realized as I was leaving that I don't need to go to the bank for I have cheques!

So here's a showcase.

These here are from a model that I barely started, the only thing refined was the engines, I kind of lost my inspiration after that and never touched it since.

These were one of my very first projects, and one that I had just learned the tools involved with it's creation.

Image

Image

Psh, see the lazyness? I could have made that plane on the bottom there 5 or 10 units larger and covered the whole scene... Anyway, carrying on. :P


Here's a model of an XM-8 Assault rifle.

Image

Image


After I saved these pictures I made several improvements to the model, got rid of a LOT of excessive detail, and gave it a few textures. This was my first texturing jobby, and I'm not happy with it, it looks like crap, but it's what I was able to do. :P

Hmm, can't find one of just the weapon, but I found this one of it being shouldered by a model that ships with max. It's supposed to have skin, that's the point of the skeleton, but I didn't want to make a skin for him so he goes without.

Image


The next few are my first attempt at particle systems to imitate a muzzle flash, I actually like the result, it's not professional but I feel I did well.

Image

Image


Note that those are not the same muzzle flash.

P-38 Lightning, some errors and whatnot, not bad overall I figure.


Image



One thing I've made several times is a vehicle from the Halo video game series called a Pelican. here you can really see how much better I've gotten.




Here are the first three times I made it.


Number 1

Image

Image

Image




Number 2

Image

Image

Image

Image







Number 3

Image

Image

Image

Image







NOW, this is the last time I made most of it.



Image

Image

Image


Like I said you can really see the improvements.

No, they're all the same vehicle. The Pelican from Halo.

The axioms are akin to the film and the "all of math" is like the image, in a hologram.

Or, at least, there is some self-similarity like a fractal.

Could be wrong though. It's happened before numerous times! :P



Wrong ? i dunno what taht feels like..there is never a complete wrong,there is always some truth in everything we react apon..

Like if i was to say i am Jesus ,that would not be a complete lie,because i was made in his image as he was in gods..

and if i were to say i am Elvis Presley then maybe i am ,because who is he anyway ? he was just a man ,a traveller like all of us,in each of us there lies some of you i guess .

That's a big negative Chisel. I can't draw, and modelling without reference images is something that am incapable of doing, it's very difficult.

Therefore I find pictures of stuff that's already been done and try to make them instead.
