56th Bryce Contest ( ComputerWorld )

recently there has been alot of artist I follow making a buzz about AI-art. Wether you agree with it or not, its been a pretty interesting topic to follow. So before the machines take over and replace my job, lets do a theme all about the cyber space. 


                                                    Bryce Contest #56 

                                              Theme: Computer World mail



Its the year 1993, rent is $500, gas is 70cents, and Blockbuster is alive and kicking. The future is bright. Personal computers are now mainstream, and all the cool kids have one. N64's are right around the corner, with the glory days of gaming soon to follow. The internet is soon to be born, connecting all possible human interaction. Information shall flow at a speed unprecedented. And with this, all sorts of wonders shall be released into the world. in 30years, we will see the mark of mankind, a genius born every 20mins from the surge in learning and filtering of information. A safe passage for all scholars, and a brighter mind for all children. Everyone will have there own personal doctor, and no politician will ever be able to lie again. This is the new age of mankind, what could possible go wrong?

    I didn't do the robot challenge so I'm excited to try this one.  I'll try to make the computer the main theme of the image.

    Lovely theme looking forward to the entries.

  • I do love the theme. I don't see any problems with robots.

    Great entry Horo....

  • HansmarHansmar Posts: 2,620

    Apoc, great theme. I did make a render in an earlier contest with a motherboard, but why not a new computer-challenge!

    Horo, wonderful start to a whole range of beautiful renders to come.

  • NGartplayNGartplay Posts: 2,482

    Horo, never thought of a motherboard.  Great looking board and it's so pretty too.

  • adbcadbc Posts: 2,720

    Horo : a very good start, excellent idea and render.

  • mermaid010mermaid010 Posts: 4,413

    Horo - I agree with the others an excellent entry to start the challenge.

  • HoroHoro Posts: 9,465

    Thank you Yellow Pen, Hansmar, NGartplay, adbc and mermaid.

  • Horo, nice entry! You are wizard of DTE laugh

    Apoc, thanks for theme. Brings many thoughts, actually. 

  • HoroHoro Posts: 9,465

    Here is my first entry: Sun over computerworld. Freebie computer parts, mainly from Turbosquid, but mouse from Free3d.com. I textured them with Bryce procedural textures. Sky, sun and a low energy distant light. Two simple robots to live in this world.

    And immediately my second render. Very different idea this time. Title: Bryce binary.

    Just a binary code, multiplied multiple times (in different colours and direction), put in a combination of a reflecting pyramids with a dome light and a radial light.

    Best seen in full size.

    Thanks for the notification NGartplay. Hope it is corrected now. Somehow I accidentally deleted the attachment.

    Hansmar - two cool entries. The first is still not shown but opens when clicking on the thumbnail.

    Horo, thanks for again indicating an error (and for the nice words). I hope now it shows both the thumbnail and the full picture! 

  • NGartplayNGartplay Posts: 2,482

    Hansmar, never thought of either of these for the competition but they fit the challenge perfectly.  A complete computer world and the Bryce binary code...very clever.

  • adbcadbc Posts: 2,720

    Hansmar : two very well done entries, great ideas as well.

    Doesn't seem to be many entries so I'm giving it a go.  I call this Play Time.  A computer's favorite past-time is playing computer games, of course.
