Rocket Martini

3ds max

This image is one of a series of rocket & space themed holiday cards I have created. The rocket part should be obvious to the casual observer, and space is represented by the Earth globe 'olive'.

This was an exercise in rendering the way light looks when it passes through glass. The mental ray renderer was used in 3ds max, which provides features for simulating caustics, the irregular refractions through the martini glass.

Another view of the Earth globe 'olive' and rocket 'toothpick' can be seen in Globe and Rocket.
