Fifty Percent Grey by DivineError Fifty Percent Grey by DivineError
I made this because a friend needed a low color contrast greyish wallpaper. It is named after my favorite 3d animation.

full view is absolutely required, i know it doesnt look like it, but trust me. but im not forcin ya to do anything.



Maya/Mental Ray. Global illumination (second bounce only) and final gathering from one spot light and a mental ray ibl node. 1 million photons from the spotlight, 2.5 million fro the ibl node. 50,000 final gather points (because of the tiny lines) at .003/.06

I've been using this as my wallpaper for probably just about the last 6 or 7 years. Good stuff.  I've yet to find something else I'd prefer to have constantly in my vision every single day.  Just wanted to let that be known.

is there any actual pattern to the levels of the hexagons, or is it just random?
(comtemplating conspiracy theory stuff - maybe it's a subliminal message with the heights mapped to an grayscale image of the Monkey Lord or somesuch - or maybe subliminal hypnotism)

This is great. Though, I was hoping for an ACTUAL "Fifty Percent Gray" wallpaper, because I've been in love with that short since I saw it in the theater. But this is quite beautiful. Also, are my eyes playing tricks on me, or is there a different colour other than gray in there? Like a very gray green?

This is great. I wish I could be making some stuff on Terragen right now, but for some reason it just freezes when I begin the render process.


I need to fix my computer. :(

Great work though, never know what to expect from you, always great and random. =D

Just to add a little something to it, I think one of the pentagons should be a vibrant colour.

yes, the perspective looks weird. i think more front view would be better.

i would love to see some small amount of golden bricks hidden between the grey ones.
it would make the image more interesting.
