    Default And the brain says bye bye!

    I came across this really cool post stamp.... And Oscar drew that in 1934. It's time it's been modeled in ZBrush! Only 9 cubes! Took me the entire lunchtime.

    CHALLENGE: You can do it better! At least the texture.... and the background..... and maybe with sphere's... or cylinders.... or.....

    Btw... Yes, it's a 3d model.

    I think it works because it's an orthographic projection... use a perspective projection and it'll be all fudged up!

    Talking @lemo

    Seems you are missed something
    (or it's not very clear with your background)
    The beauty of this drawing is also the "star' resultant in the center!

    Nope, really ONE 3d structure consisting out of 8.something cubes...

    Boring topic it seems. I can hear the crickets in this thread... and the desert wind and the distant blues harp playing a sad western tune... Nobody up for 3d puzzles?
