"He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars: general Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer, for Art and Science cannot exist but in minutely organized Particulars."

William Blake

Gzhel Serving Plate

     This is a 3D rendering done on 11/14/1998.  The color maps for the serving plate and wall paper were drawn in Illustrator 8.  The plaid cloth under the candles were created in Painter 5 using the weave features.  Clip maps were created in photoshop for the cloth so that at high resolution, you could see thegzhels_c.jpg (5306 bytes) threads separate at the edges.   The flames are mapped with a custom color texture and transparency map created in photoshop.  They are also animate-able with a displacement map and falloff texture, while the glow is created with both a surface glow effect and volumetric lighting.  The dripping wax was created with a volumetric particles surface rendering system.
