I really dig on the grooves! Groovy! Took me a second to realize that it's a reflection and not a grooved clear ball. I Googled images for "Petanque" and it seems to be a popular game at nudist colonies/resorts. Weird.

ahhhhhh you mean Boules,I was trying to work out what the hell Petanque was,then I remembered I had heard it before.& then with that, the image suddenly hit me,like many,I thought transparent ball?but no,its pure Claf genius,why isn't this winning? superb

This is TRUELY extrodinary!!!! This is the most impressive I think I've seen. just the idea alone of doing a metal surface instead of a glass surface is intrigueing! I like how it plays with your mind. You say it only took alittle time to do?
tsitra tsitra
reflection nice, took me a minute. (not that you should) but wonder what would make the metal more obvious, what variable is it that triggers the immediate assumption this is transparent?? interesting how the mind automatically jumps to conclusion.

very nice, claf! I guess the closest in English to Petanque is lawn bowling, but on gravel, not lawn.

Tofu : petanque = France = naturisme. That's why :)
Claf Claf
Nudism?? I have to add... there's nothing subliminal here! :)
TofuTheGreat TofuTheGreat
Thanks for the explaination Michel! And Claf I like the fleck stuck to the ball too. Subtle detail but adds a bunch.

Claf Claf

Micose Micose
do u know the name for the little red one to aim at ? the " cochonnet" pronounce :"cowshownay".
Claf Claf
I made some small adjustments... I found my idea only this morning and had not enough time to make it well. Thanks already for your votes & comments! :)
Josh62088 Josh62088
you've given me a new challenge, to step too Claf... very impressive indeed!
rashdog rashdog
sweet update...way undervoted
Claf Claf
Thanks for your nice comments! Marco, I think that the subject is not helping... petanque is a boring game that a lot of people never heard about. Josh, it took 2 hours + 1/2 hour last night. I was inspired by YerPalAl’s Flying Over Tahoe Car...
Claf Claf
... on this one. Tsitra, I like the fact that we dont see the real thing immediately. Maybe yesterday some details were not helping, but I think that now it's enough realistic.
Claf Claf
For the one who never heard about petanque, here's an example of what the hell is that game: [img]
Claf Claf
The goal of petanque is to pitch your metal balls as close as possible to the little red one (cochonnet). Very simple game! :)
Claf Claf
Re: arcaico: Thanks! It looks more tough to play on that surface. Isn't it?
kooi kooi
understood, sorry ;)
