Makes me think of "time slice" effects turned inside out.

Care to explain that one?
Your comment gives me a thought. There is time involved for a reflection to bounce off a mirror and come to the eyes, so we always see ourselves in the past when we look in a mirror.

by "time slice" effects I meant the film-making effect from The Matrix, you know, the circle of cameras thing, or also the "bullet time" effects

I guess it was the sense of the frozen pose seen from multiple angles at once implying rotation, but the rotation fragmented, thus "inside out"
It was really just a mental riff off of the image, just like your thought riffs off of my comment. Neat idea btw and I guess the deeper the reflections go, the deeper back in time? I believe that Minimalist sculptors such as Robert Morris and Robert Smithson did get into some speculations like that with their mirror installation pieces.

Are these copies? or are there reflective surfaces in the scene?

She's in a diamond shaped room of mirrors, facing a sharp corner. One woman, four mirrors. Oh yeah, and I used your leathers.inc. :)

Wow! It took me a while to see the edges of the mirrors. I thought they were anomalies in the floor pattern at first.
Glad the leathers are working for you. :)

Thanks for posting the link to the other leather include file. I think if I stretch that normal, I can use it for skin bumps in my photorealistic skin experiments. :)

True, its really hard to tell where the mirrors are.
I tried a combination of your leather textures with primate1's leather normals, it didn't look so good on this piece, but I gotta experiment with that some more.
Skin experiments (Silence of the Lambs comes to mind :laughing: ) - I can't see that normal being used as a normal human skin, but what do I know. :shrug:

Doh!

I wanted to try that experiment as well! ( The one using his normals with my leathers, that is. )

If you think about it, leather is a preserved skin. :)
Anyway, I think the normal would have to be modified. It should look better than bumpy dots though. :D

Or you could make a leathery skin. That could be interesting/strange. Not exactly magna/anime though. :confused: ... :D

Hmmm.... Imagine a rectangular room with mirrored walls. Standing in the room, you'd see yourself repeated forever in all directions, if I'm not mistaken. Would take forever, more or less, to render. Is that what this is? Sort of?

Yeah, pretty much, except it's a diamond shape, not a rectangle. It rendered surprisingly fast. Only 2 lights. More lights make render time go up. Reflection does too, but I'd say this rendered in about an hour (maybe a little more) at 1667X1000 pixels.

Maybe the diamond shape was what made it fast. Only a few of the infinitely many reflections are in frame.

That could be, I didn't think of that.
