As a former Povray user I realized my old project to make

something analogous to a work named 'TopMod StarBall' of Janet Lowry,

published 2007 in Povray's hall of fame (

I think it would be possible to do this in Blender only. To do a part of the

modelling with TopMod is much more comfortable however, because this

program contains a 'Shape Interpolation Mode'.

Different from the wonderful picture of Janet Lowry which is more abstract,

isolated and doing its own thing, my Starball is an exhibit in a museum of

modern art or something similar.

There is no compositing. The ball's material is all procedural. Thanks again

to elbrujodelatribu ( for the gold.

The photograph of the wall is my own and I did the wood texture of the pile with

Filter Forge. The different maps were made with Crazy Bump.
