You name your computers too?

I'm still trying to come up with a name for my Octane. I wanna call him Frank Dukes. My PC is named Pete Mitchell and my eMac is named Pussybitch.

Every machine that has a soul needs a suitable name :) I'm still trying to figure out a good one for my HP J5000 - It's got "Hedgehog" assigned to it now, but that's only temporary. Problem is that HPUX shortens hostnames to 8 chars for uname, which makes it quite a bit harder to find a good one. :?

I got around naming my systems when I got more sgi's :)
My pc still hasn't a proper name, it just has my nickname 'bluefan', my second pc never got a name.
My sgi's are named:
Lisa (Octane)
Danica (indigo2)
Lara (origin200)
Toika (O2)
Myra (O2)
All have girl names, because I just love these babes :D :wink:

Well as you all know IRIS is the default, and, apart from it being a flower, it also sounds like an Egyptian God (Isis, the mother God), I decided to keep the Egyptian God theme going.

The O2 was my original system, so it retains the name IRIS.

The second O2 I bought to replace it (long story), is named Osiris.

The Octane (when I get it up and running) will be named Anubis.

Don't ask me why, I don't even know myself, but for now, that's where it stands, till I get bored and change everything again. :roll:

No, but the title of the thread is "SGI Art Gallery" in IRIX: Computer Graphics ... let's try and keep it on topic :)

Thread ressurection attack!

So I finally got settled in here with my Octane and after brainstorming what to do, I came up with two things:

1) It's got tons of RAM so obviously that means high res images which means printing res which means I made a cafepress shop.

http://www.cafepress.com/cultmonkey/

So there's some of my art made on an SGI.

Which isn't really spectacular art-wise, but I just like the novelty of doing everything on my Octane.

2) 3D art. I taught myself how to make character models in Blender. So I work for some company that makes some multimedia deaf literacy education software and I did rotoscoping (is that the term?) over a video to make a character do sign language.

Now to figure out how to upload the very very short clip.

I need to get myself a server so I can put up more than a cafepress shop.

I have a 3D alien dude with a tie and a combover.

I've been fiddling with Maya 4.5 off and on (mostly off) since '03. I jump around quite a bit between materials, lighting, mental ray, etc. I've spent very little time with animating scenes and modeling, which is why most of the crap I do is spheres and cubes. Though I know the basics of each I just haven't concentrated on them too much. My focus has always been photorealistic scenes. I've long been enamored with those. The kind of pictures that you have to sit there and think about it if it's real or not is what I want to do... When I get off my ass and teach myself modeling.

This is from a few months ago. A simple flat plane with a cracked mud texture, some chrome spheres, and a single ambient light that is slightly yellow in color to try and simulate sunlight. Then all of that is inside one big sphere with a wide angle picture overlooking San Francisco mapped to the inside of it. A "fake" HDRI of sorts. Then a depth of field lens shader in mental ray for the blurriness. Rendered at 1280x720 on an 8 CPU Origin.

Paul Haeberli photographed the "cafe" environment map in Cafe Verona in Palo Alto, CA. He used a Nikon film camera with 180 fisheye lens that he borrowed from Ned Greene while he was working at NYIT. To create the full 360 degree environment, Paul mirrored the front 180 degree image to create a plausible back 180 degrees, and then stitched the two images together to produce a complete environment. This environment map, along with another one shot in a flower garden, shipped as the two environment map choices in Silicon Graphics' popular real-time shading demos. In December 2003 Paul unearthed the original fisheye image used to create the Cafe environment map, and the full 360 map derived from it.

Always thought it was good idea to have a thread like this - so let's revive it from the dead...!

The buyer for my Indigo2 didn't come through, so I've been playing with the Warp function in Creator a bit...

Original:

Final result after some retouching and curves:

SGIs were after all made for graphics, so let's see if you have some cool stuff!
