I'm moving over to the bitco.in forum and will not be updating this thread anymore. I wonder if this will make theymos ban me here...https://bitco.in/forum/threads/bitcoin-artwork-free-for-all-use.82/
I showed off some Bitcoin related CGI work in the past and it was well received. I've been working on some more designs and like to share them with you. Everything was made in Blender, which is free and open source. First the old designs for those who haven't seen them yet:Here
is the first work I posted and it got a positive response. After this I made some more close-up shots of the coins finally resulting in this massive 3840x2160
Some details on the features of the coin designs; the 1 coin has a p2p network on the front side and the binary on the rim spells "Bitcoin". The 5 coin has a "block-chain" on the front side and "Vires in Numeris" on the rim. You can explore the models in 3D here: http://skfb.ly/5lji32dca
One of the most frequent critiques I got was that Bitcoins aren't really a physical thing so it should look more digital. I understand that and took that to heart so the first thing I made after that was a coin-wireframe integration. Here
Here is a fully digital Bitcoin
, still a bit of a work in progress though.
A tron inspired scene.
My most recent work was trying to visualize the magnitude of 100,000,000 Satoshi=1 BTC (Click to enlarge!)Here
is the complete album with of all renders so far in high resolution.
I've also made some animation experiments with falling Bitcoins
, and the digital bitcoin glowing and rotating
(need to watch in HD to really see it). These are just tests though, as with my current rig rendering full high quality animations isn't really feasible.
Finally I made some Litcoins and Bitcoins
on commission, which my client allowed me to share.
All the work above has a CC0 license
, so free for all use even without credits, though tips are very much appreciated of course. So if anyone is feeling generous or wants to use them and give me something even though they are free, you are very welcome to do so at: 1BmSFrbDDYT46W6aLpRNk72yA57RvkJgDP or http://cybrbeast.tip.me
Some of my work has shown up in some articles and sites
already. My wallpapers are also available at CoinDL on a 'Pay What You Want' pricing if you want to support my work: https://www.coindl.com/page/author/604
I've also made the 3D models of the coins available for those who know how to use them. I use blender. For people without Blender I've also exported Collada and OBJ files. They are available at CoinDL on a 'Pay What You Want' pricing, i.e. free if you don't want to pay.https://www.coindl.com/page/item/1052

also used my design to make physical coins stamped out of metal (no Bitcoin value, just nice objects), I've got a pair and I think they turned out great, nice and big and heavy.
I hope you guys enjoy the work.
I also made my avatar, and one for cypherdoc
(these are obviously not free to use for everyone). Here is a Bitcoin/Litecoin spinner
You can get prints here
(can pay in Bitcoin).
