If you back out far enough to see some of the shape the atoms are forming, you are too far away to see them. So I made them reflect a common tree. And like looking at shapes in the clouds, it's easy to see things in the tree as well.
Fractal Flame image. This is how I imagine an Atom would photograph, if we could get a live action shot. We never can though, as light can't bounce off all those parts fast enough to be captured like this.
I didn't use lo-res models as the tiny trees in the background, so this image had over 22 trillion polygons. (69.6 trillion when rendering the dynamically generated parts.) Defiantly NOT a model of efficiency.
This started as an experiment with steam. Part of my Onyx Table series. This is a remake of the 1999 original. So it would work better with wider formats, I added a reflection in the back as well as modeling a better cup.
An Antique music box. I tried to make a video of the creation of the music box and final image but lost a bunch of the slides. Out of frustration, this one didn't get finished until I had nearly forgot about it all.
