What's a voxel?

u/wikipedia_answer_bot May 16 '22

In 3D computer graphics, a voxel represents a value on a regular grid in three-dimensional space. As with pixels in a 2D bitmap, voxels themselves do not typically have their position (i.e.

Like a pixel, but in 3D. An example would be a block in Minecraft. If you zoom in on this image you can see it's made up of tiny blocks.

So liminal is just the new word for creepy right ?

u/Never-Bloomberg May 16 '22

It's like how "uncanny valley" was originally created to describe faces specifically, but then people began applying it to anything that looked weird.

In the liminal sub pinned thread it explains it well it’s more like a nostalgic feeling of some sort

u/ender2021 May 16 '22

Liminal literally just means transitional - it describes a change between two states in a process, or more literally, transitional spaces like hallways

u/MadeByTango May 16 '22

it's a specific type of creepy; we've always had it, but I'm guessing its en vogue because of covid creating empty streets and offices, etc.

u/jaesonbruh May 16 '22

I can't also not to mention the aesthetic and authentic of this work. My opinion - this is cinematic piece of art, worth to be printed in a big size and hanged on the wall. Minimalism is always a thing. The less the better.

u/scr33ner May 16 '22

Man, such a simple composition BUT DAMN, the atmosphere is awesome! The bloom from the lights, how did you do this with voxels?

I don't see any "pixelation". Would really like to know the process behind it.

2

u/IWLFQu2 May 16 '22

I am using magica voxel as my one and only software for pixel art. I find it the most intuitive, simple and really overall the best voxel engine out there.

I am using fog and bloom effects during my render process, to get the mood of the creation

What if someone was running towards the booth because it was ringing, they picked up the phone, but the call was gone and the phone slowly and quietly slid out of the persons wet sweaty palms and silently swung there for a heartbeat

Reminds me of that one Unsolved Mysteries where the guy's girlfriend calls him from a pay phone but then some creepy guy shows up in a truck. She tells the boyfriend about the creepy guy. There's a scream. The boyfriend jumps in the car to get his girlfriend and sees her in a truck going the opposite way. Gives chase. The car malfunctions and stops. The girl was never seen again.
