I am afraid that, somehow, I am responsible for the heavy snowfall in 
Europe. Since December, I am working with Gilles Tran's MakeSnow macro 
and matters got seriously out of control. However, I am not sorry! :-)

This is the state-of-the-art of the scene. It is loosely inspired by the 
work of French painter Jean-Pierre Ugarte: 
http://ugarte.pagesperso-orange.fr/ .

In addition to Gilles Tran, I am indebted to macros by Brandon 
(isosurface tree trunks), PM_2Ring (Catenary) and Tim Nikias (Bsplines), 
not to mention the usual suspects: Poser, Poseray, Silo, etc.

I have seriously reworked Brandon's macro from 2005, and I intend to 
make the MakeSnow macro able to write/read the calculated snow data 
to/from file.

Don't ask about the title's meaning. I don't know. ;-)

More to come later. Enjoy and shiver!

Maybe it's because those heads are gossiping a lot...

In October 2002 Genady Obukhov posted barks to the p-b-sf (several 
postings from October 4th, 6th and 16th) that may be of interest to you.

Best regards

Me too. I believe it is spot on.

The figure is just a placeholder I use for the (approximate) scale of 
shapes in the scene. It will disappear in the final version. I am not 
always very strict where scales are concerned and do much just by 
feeling or rule of thumb. Only in serious cases I set out a strict, 
basic, scale dimension for the whole scene.

I am quite satisfied with the ice crust too. It took me as much time as 
the whole remainder of the scene to achieve. :-)

Thanks indeed Michael! I dived into my archives (cough! cough! Damn 
dust!) and found a trunks.pov from November 2002. I shall look further 
and delve up those files you mention.

Yes, the file I have (trunks.pov) seems to be the final version of 
macros. I am not entirely satisfied with them. Especially when varying 
the BaseRadius and TopRadius values, there is a fundamental problem with 
the F1 functions which do not adapt correctly/linearly the depth of the 
bark accordingly. I shall look into that at a later stage maybe.

A promising image!
Interesting also the works of Jean-Pierre Ugarte. Some of those reminded 
me the lithographs of Antonio Basoli (e.g. 
http://www.italianways.com/lalfabeto-di-basoli-e-la-storia-infinita-2/).
