Description:

A few more different colours of the one I put up yesterday. Meant to be a stylised letter K. Some have white backgrounds so you can easily change to whatever you want in your fave graphics package. Will put up 1600x1200 if anyone wants them. will also do any other colour combinations of backgrounds and letter colours.
The zip file contains all 5 of the .png files.

Any comments much appreciated ....

Blimey this was months ago!

The orange one please, that would be snazzy. But only if you want to do it, I don't want to waste your time :)

Does anybody want any more colour combinations of this wallpaper before I call it a day ? I've done a couple with darker backgrounds that look quite good if anyone is interested ....

For those who are interested this is how I did it.

2 days ago I installed a copy of Bryce5-demo version. Never having used a 3d package before I was impressed with how easy it was to use.

Anyway, got bored with making nice scenery pictures and thought I'd try something different. Started playing around with metaballs and came up with these pictures after a short while.

The large shape is made up of a number of elipsoid metaballs all flattened and squashed together.
Where the inner parts of the circles are lighter, this was done by playing around with the colours and transparency properties of each metaball.You probably can't see on these pictures but each light circle is the slightly transparent top of a metaball.

I placed a reflective white surface underneath the shapes to give the image some depth. The light actually shines through each metaball and is reflected by the flat white surface.

Anyway, hoped this helped anyone who's interested and gives people confidence to have a go something themselves. If I can do this on my first attempt, imagine what someone with a bit of talent can produce.

mrmunkily asked if it was supposed to imitate the office V.x logo,I can honestly say that it doesn't as I don't even know what V.x is. Perhaps he could post the url so that I could take a look, maybe get some ideas for my next picture !!

Anyway, thanks for the comments, good to know people like my stuff.
If anyone has anymore requests/suggestions then please feel free, but you'd better be quick as my budding artist flair will be coming to an end soon as my Bryce5 30 day trial period will be coming to an end :-(

Anyone recommend a cheap alternative easy to use 3d package??

... that I liked it a whole lot better when it still had the light-blue/light-grey background (plain-object I guess). Having them on a white and unstructured background is good though. This way everyone can isolate them easily and put them in new stuff.

Again, I was more pleased with the plain that the K sits on being visible.

And I would really like to hear how you made this K. Did you use scaling along the Y-axis with spheres? Did you use blobs? And how did you get the inner part of the ovals to look brighter? Was it ambient? What software did you use? Pov? Please shed some light on this. It interests me a lot. And did I mention that I like this K a lot?

the render style (spec) looks like blender, or another scanline renderer. metaballs is probably what that deform is, at least that's the simplest way to make it. Nurbs or a good subsurf also might be it.

anyway, It's nice, is it supposed to imitate the office V.x logo? it kind of does, but you'd need more specularity for that, perhaps an envmap.

how you do it the K is a very hard technique ... maybe you would upload a tutorial.... your Wall paper is fresh and nice (clean too).

Hello

I like the "k" and I'd like to have it in 1600X1200.

Will be adding bigger versions as soon as they finish rendering - takes forever on my machine.
Not sure if it's best to put them in the 1600x1200 section as a seperate zip file or just add them to this zip file, anyone know which is the usual way ?
Like Markus said, it's becoming bit of a 'K' flood at the moment ..
