Made myself a new wallpaper

Not sure if this is the place for it, but it was 100% made in SU in about 15 minutes using a single (duh) component copied way too many times. After waiting 5 minutes for the animation to run in Sketchy Physics, I cleaned up the geometry I used to scatter the casings around then exported and rendered it. Here it is straight out of Kerky and at full res, 1440x900.

In retrospect I should have centered it properly...but I have to redo it anyways because I used the wrong material for the brass.

EDIT: Anyone who knows guns should notice that those are in no way based on a real round. For one thing, they are far too long. Any round that is that long would have a tapered end to it, because it would be a rifle round. I really doubt any handgun would have 2 inch long .50 cal rounds and for that matter, I really doubt any .50 cal round would only be 2 inches long anyways. :D.

The S&W Model 500 IS a .50 cal, but im sure the casings arent 2 inches long. I could be wrong though.

If I'd seen that in another context, I'd mistake it for a photo of actual brass pieces.

I suppose Ill take that as a compliment :D
Actually I totally lucked out. I didnt think to make the primer a different color until about 2 seconds before I clicked the export button :o . The primers are silver and while it is a HUGE difference before the render, the end result is really subtle. I was thinking that the global I used (from the hdri globals on the Kerky website) was going to have a lot more stuff in it as I had never used that one before, but it turned out to be a subtle smoke effect.

I think it makes a nice desktop.

Anyone have any suggestions regarding this?
Im far from "good" with Kerkythea, or even at modeling, and am always looking for tips on this stuff.
