Pyrite Up Close

Leoni Mullett

Nelspruit, South Africa

Artist's Description

This is a close-up of my previous picture Pyrite . I changed some Poser settings .. most notably I made the reflection maps spherical maps in stead of ray-traced … the main result is that this took about 15 minutes to render, while the ray-traced one took 4 days.

It looks good enough but I must say I think the ray-traced one has a special glow to it that is lacking here. But considering the saving in time … ah well :)

Background image generated with Apophysis.

A tiny little bit of post work done in Photoshop, notably on the eye.

Thanks to Dave for suggestions about this image :)
