"Deep zoom - texture becomes more blanket-like"
These parameters started with fraterchaos
's parameters and image called Toon City here: [link]
Wow, there was a lot more than I could even guess here! As I often do, I reset the parameters and zoomed out and found that I had to keep zooming out and zooming out further and still couldn't capture the whole bulb! So I rendered around 10 images to get the whole scene. [link]
Then I just went nuts going around a lot of the fractal and changing little but the render calculations, FOVy and the colours - I made a new gradient and cycled that as well as playing with the shadows and reflections.
This is number nineteen of TWENTY-THREE which is less than a quarter of the renders I made. I chose the ones which represented the most various views of this bulb.
Here is ONE bulb parameter: [link]
from the first image I posted.
Please ask me here or on the individual image page if you are interested in trying one of the other sets! Thanks so much for viewing and thanks to
Leonie. EDIT January 3, 2012
