This was an absolute pleasure to wake up to! Maybe the filament could look hot momentarily after it lights up...

[edit] Also, I may be wrong, but it looks like his right eye pops out a little bit when he lights up. Watch at the end of a comparison.

The left is the older one, just checking if the right one suits you people I got it cleaned.

Also, Meph, do you need the Photoshop file of an empty HD Green Hill screen?

To me the egg prison is looking a lot better.

Glad you like it! As for the eye popping out, it is just an optical illusion, the eye stays exactly where it is the whole time.

While I'll agree that it looks better, it's still looking flat to me. That's one of the main reasons I did a 3D model of it awhile back, to provide better shading reference.

There must be a way to make it look less flat... I mean, look at this:

They can give perspective to something which shouldn't even exist...

Which is sheer irony since I actually used your 3D render as a base.

The domed part is an issue for me. The shading does not connect correctly with the rest of the prison, nor does it behave realistically. I like the bottom part a lot though.

This may be a red metal lampshade, but it gives us a better idea of how light reflects off a metallic dome:



I also found these... 'things', too:






It's surprising what you can find when you do a Google Image search.

Maybe I'm just having a bad idea here, but maybe the central part looks flat because the sides are perfectly vertical, so I wonder if it would look any better by adding some imperfection, or something like this: .

I don't even know if what I said makes sense at all, I know nothing about art sad.png

So close Test-Object, SO CLOSE!!! How about you just overlay your most recent egg prison with a 50% alpha of the grainier one. I think that would do it. wink.png

Awesome! But I think now the dome is a tad too grainy. However, the sides are PERFECT! And there is a certain level of comedy in the scene you have given us.
