TopMod StarBall by parrotdolphin TopMod StarBall by parrotdolphin
I followed a great TopMod tutorial [link] by :iconsjoo: to make this. Thanks sjoo!

(The full view shows the pattern much better)

The Technical Stuff
-----------------------
Shape made using TopMod.
I UV mapped the front sections in Blender. Took forever! I had to re-do it 3 times.
Penrose Tiler and Illustrator were used for the Penrose pattern.
Rendered in POV-Ray.
Gotta love all the free software out there and all the great people that make it. :)

This is based on a design by Bathsheba Grossman. She has amazing sculptures!

I haven't used it in a long time. I made the design in Penrose Tiler and then exported it to Adobe Illustrator to change the line thickness, and then to Photoshop I think.

Thanks for the credit! Much appreciated.
I can see where texture mapping that would be a beast -- never tackled it myself. ;-)

I know so much more now. I bet I could map it in one try now - maybe. :giggle:
