Objects created very quickly using Amorphium http://www.Amorphium.com

I created all of these objects very quickly using Amorphium then exported them to Bryce 4 and rendered them as simply as possible except that I tried to pick poses that showed off their shape. Most of these involved either distorting primitives in various ways or applying fractal images as height maps to actually distort the 3D mesh rather than simply giving an illusion of distortion as a bump map does. After every distortion I used smoothing at 100% many times.


Spaceships. Notice how the first one looks a lot like the Super Star Destroyer from Star Wars. This was a total accident. I was impressing a fractal on a primitive really hard. The second one has a birdlike shape. I liked it right away. It is very thin and has big wings. Remember these were total accidents. The third one looks like a three level space ship. I kind of like it partly because I wouldn't have thought of it all on my own. The next one also has a kind of three tiered shape. The next one has a diagonal nose. Why not? The sixth one is more blunt and sporty like a small probe or a one man ship. The last one could be a traditional mother ship or a cloud city ala Star Wars but for the spiral shape. Again, why not?

Alien art? Artifacts? I think the first one looks a bit like a rose.
The first four pictures two objects with two views each.

For some reason this reminds me of a Klingon weapon.
It could also be a big metal sculpture like birds s_it on in the park.  :)

This is a cube that has been twisted on all three axes.
I don't remember how I accomplished this but these are all different views of the same object.

This is a flat sheet that has been twisted to its limits.
I think it held up rather well.  :)  I just wanted to see how much torture this single sheet mesh could take before breaking the first one is pretty much the limit and is already showing frayed edges.
