All this painting with light, I think it would also be interesting to paint with shadow. 3D provides interesting ability to cast shadows and hide the object that' casting them for some weird effect:
Other play with translucent materials, gels, back lit stuff etc, could be very interesting.
Like this Maxwell rendering... at least I think It's a maxwell rendering If I remember correctly:
And this actual photograph:
Problem is rendering SSS SubSurfaceScattering, Blurry Translucency/Volume Fog etc etc, is pretty slow to work with still.
I'd also like to play with rendering interesting caustic patterns, but the rendering for that is painfully slow, though I hear the next Vray update has a new rendering type that makes mince meat of it. *rubs hands*
And this is one of the most beautiful images I have, a photograph of Ice, i'd love to be able to render things like this in 3D... *dreams*

Very interesting video created with 'processing'

It feels like the recently added iTunes visualizer was inspired by this:

Actually come to think of it, It's taken from Magnetosphere which was probably inspired by something else

I guess giant mysterious balls with energy flowing round them is the in thing these days

And no, you cannot die from being totally covered in silver/gold paint... so quick everybody get naked and silver up now, It's safe!
Someone else (Tony Ariawan) who has discovered the joys of painting with light.

Forgive duplication but in creating this 'Inspiration' article? document? section... some duplication will be needed from time to time:
I've visited some of his buildings in Valencia and It's amazing stuff (some of the above photos of my visit, I took like millions of photos!). Like your on a some giant futuristic film set. But It's simple, elegant and somehow stands up against gravity.
Stuff I would even struggle to draw and grasp the shape of in my head, are built out of large very real tonnages of concrete, It's what Architecture should be in my opinion.
Someone with way too much time on their hands:

Ok I'm starting this new 'Inspiration' section. Where I shall dump stuff I find visually interesting. A lot of the images will be shamelessly ripped from other peoples blogs, but that's what the internet is all about!
I'm also back dating it by moving some of my older posts into this where applicable.

This looks like what I've been trying to create with particles, someone beat me to it with glass!

What I'm trying to do with volume renderings draws many parallels with xray photography too in terms of the aesthetic look.
Xray photography has this interesting way of turning normal objects into vector like, stylistic representations, Objects look like they are made from light:

It's great to see something actually creative done with 3D for change... wait.. what's that? oh It's not 3D, It's a photograph, oh right. I forgot no one does anything original in 3D anymore
:-Pget back to your 3D renderings of cars in parking lots people, nothing to see here.
Some other nice 'real' things:
Mmm shiny car:

Does it make me a bad, perhaps egotistical person to link to my own website for inspiration... sure it does! *does it anyway*
