Neuron Spark by neutrix Neuron Spark by neutrix
Maya / Mental Ray / Photoshop.

The neurons were modeled and rendered in Maya using Mental Ray. For the texture of the neurons I used a displacement map to create the electron microscope effect.

It was fun working on this one! I'm very interested in neuroscience and all kinds of brain stuff, so this was inspired by it :)

Hi Neutrix,
It is very nice picture. I am building a website for a neurology Clinic. I would like to put this picture on the website. Do you allow me to use it? 

Thanks

I manipulated this as a test for an album cover/oromo art last night. Plan to give full credit as I see it detailed below. Would like to share it with you and get your permission.

Thank you! I'd love to be able to share a private link to the album with you, as it's only available to my patrons at Patreon.com right now, but I have no idea how to (or if I can) do that on here. So unless there's a way for us to privately trade info, I'll let you know when the album goes public in a few days. It's going to be offered for "name your price" (meaning free plus the option to tip), so you can totally download the album if you want! Thanks again, and you'll find a credit on the album's download page as well as in the downloadable liner notes.

Hi, I am currently doing a project about a neurodegenerative disease, Parkinson's disease. I am currently doing my product, which is a poster about the disease. I will be posting them in libraries and clinics. I am wondering if I can use this picture as a background maybe and if I can edit the color. I will be giving you credit on the poster.
Thank you.

Hello,

I am involved in a research project dealing with the possible causes of sporatic Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and am trying to put my project up on a crowd funding site called Microryza that funds scientific research. So I was just wondering if you would be ok with me using your image as the banner picture that appears on my project page. I'm actually not sure if I want to use this image or your image called "Neuron Spike Train" both are very nice. I would be sure to give you credit for your work regardless of which image I use.

Hey,

Me and some friends have created a health magazine called SimpleHealth. We are a non-profit organisation created by a group of young and enthusiastic students. The primary aim of this magazine is to promote awareness of certain medical conditions and offer advice on how to improve lifestyle etc. The theme of our second issue is mental health and we were wondering if we could perhaps use your image as the cover for our magazine? Of course you will be given full credit for your image, please get back to me as soon as possible regarding this matter. It would be much appreciated. Thanks

Hello!

Thank you for kind words!

I created this image as a desktop background... so the resolution is rather small for print.
The biggest you can print it at a decent resolution is probably 11"x17" (inches)

dnadublin Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2012
thanks Neutrix, I was thinking of something quiet a bit bigger. the plan is/was to print onto glass and backlight your design with lots on twinkling christmas lights behind the image. The quality is pretty good even at low res, maybe I could try to bump up the resolution artifically. Ideally I would like to get it up to 1.2 meters wide - something like that. Ill do some experiements and let you know. fecking excellent work!! ;)
