Currently I'm working on an entry for the TC-RTC round "The Metal Monster".
It's fun to combine landscape with living alien metal.

I have to work more on the concept, but the atmosphere is imho ok.

Looks very promising. Only 100 days to polish it a bit more, though ;-)

The final render will take about 30 days (5 pps)...

Thank you, Jaime!

I had to use an old trick of Rune to enhance contrast - otherwise it would look
pale and boring.

// Rune S. Johansen  bwstripe.pov
sphere {
        cam_loc, 0.001
        hollow
        pigment {color rgb 0.5 transmit 1.4}
        finish {emission 1 diffuse 0}
}

Holy Metal! This is really good! Satisfyingly alien.

Yes, I love the alien aspect of the tale.

As Camus wrote in "Sysiphus":
"At the heart of all beauty lies something inhuman, and these hills, the
softness of the sky, the outline of these trees at this very minute lose the
illusory meaning with which we had clothed them, henceforth more remote than a
lost paradise. The primitive hostility of the world rises up to face us across
millennia."

But it's difficult to depict it in a still image...
Here are some more tests -

Any snippets of tests would not go amiss. :)

The top RH one would look good on a rotating table.

Keep showing off. :)
