I've been here before but apparently something changed and my login 'vanished'. It was quite a while ago so I'm not surprised.
Someone asked how the image was made. It was originally made in Lightwave 8 but now we're up to version 11 and things have become much better. Now all the cubes are instances with a random offset on the Y-axis. Much easier to handle. I guess there's around 6-8 million polygons in there since the boxes are subdivision surfaces to get the corners very smooth.
I'm thinking about playing a bit around with the image, but if anyone have ideas please don't hesitate to write them here.
