You can find this 3d model available on Turbosquid.com by search for “energy saver lamp”.
This is a 3d fluorescent lamp. At first, it appears drab, and so photorealistic one might almost wonder, “why not just take a photo?” Well, interestingly, CG has come so far that creating ultra-realism has gone from an aspiration to an all-out obsession! As one industry critic stated, over the years as the science of photography continued to be developed, engineers would do everything they could to get rid of “lens flair”. 3d science, on the other hand, has tried to introduce it to improve realism. Depth of field, as well, while not incredibly necessary and sometimes even annoying, has been introduced to the 3d realm of rendering. Believe it or not, rendering a genuine DOF scene (without cutting corners) uses LOADS of computer power to achieve that simple background blur that is oh-so dreamy.
Well, here are modern compact light bulbs.
You might ask…with all that 3d power behind your creation, why not create a really cool robot or fantasy concept and make that look photorealistic?
Well, the answer is simple. After going through SO much trouble to achieve realism by rendering mundane objects, the artist almost becomes numb to creativity, his excitement now resulting from realistic effects. So while many newcomers in the world of 3d might one day look forward to rendering a really cool looking hover train piloted by robotic salamanders, the reality is once the necessary skill is achieved, they dream of finally finishing that photo-realistic spoon and hard-boiled egg scene.
So my final claim to skill was this energy saver lamp. But sadly, it is still created in error. The screw bottom is actually backwards, and would not be compatible with any socket. Read More (See the Illustration)…
