Bumpy Spheres

Ken Perlin is a genius. Here are two images using Perlin noise to perturb the normals on the sphere to give it a bumpy feeling. Click on the images for larger versions:

The best part is that no special geometry was used. These are just two simple spheres! This is so fun! I'm inspired to sing "Come on Feel the Noise" by Quiet Riot.

  2. First off, I must say, "Girl's rock your boys!!" These images remind me of an old school candy I used to buy that was like a jawbreaker, but had liquid goo inside when you broke through. The black and white sphere has a face, albeit a freaky baby face, but a face none the less. Thanks for giving me nightmares tonight set to the dulcet tones of Quiet Riot, Jeff. ;D
