Computer Generated Images


One of my hobbies is programming (as you can see on other pages) -- and while that it a lot of work for me, my computer's CPU is idle most of the time. Some time back I decided that this was an intolerable waste of CPU cycles and hence, my box is now working when I am...
I had some ideas what to render, bought some more RAM, gave POVRay (for Linux) a nice value of 15... and the results can be seen here.

Unless explicitly stated differently, all images here were created using POVRay, often with additional applied.
Post-rendering image manupulation was normally done using the GIMP.
