When I was in Australia, I thoroughly enjoyed an art documentary about Anish Kapoor
Anish does in the real world things that I attempt to do in the world of 3D computer graphics. Anish also does it far better than me . . .
One in particular caught my eye and that is his sculpture in Chicago’s Millennium park entitled Cloud Gate
. . .
Here is a photograph of the Cloud Gate sculpture courtesy of Barbara Brown
Skyline Bubble

. . .
This is my second attempt at making something similar in 3D space . . .
Created and rendered in Bryce 7 Pro using my trusty MacMini . . .
No post work . . .

I enjoy life in all its aspects.
Love to make art on my Mac and ride bikes, both Hugh powered and motorised.
I am an optimistic, opinionated, atheist, sceptic . . .

  • Thank you Lee . . . It was a fascinating documentary about a brilliant artist. I even sent an e-mail to Anish thanking him for sharing his artistic vision and was quite surprised when I received a reply from his studio . . .
