Bull Ring (Old Theater)
I can't post this monograph without stating that I am against bullfighting. It's just coincidental that I found some good models of bulls and cows at about the same time. That's why there is no blood, no torreadors, no spectators; but there is a threatened-looking cow instead. What I like is the architecture of the old theater in the round. Changing the stage setting, it could easily become a greek or roman theater. I was thinking about chopping in half vertically and embedding in a terrain. I once visited the theater at Orange in France, and would like to make a model of that spectacular structure someday. This model, or one like it, could serve as part of the seating gallery. The bull and cow models are from www.3DCafe.com. Thanks 3DCafe! The stone texture is from www.animax.it, Thanks animax! The fur texture is from a scan of an hat I obtained in China. I think it's rabbit fur. Thanks, Mr./Ms. Rabbit! No bulls or cows, but sorry to say, an unlucky Chinese Rabbit was harmed in the making of this image. Many go without an image so maybe this one was luckier than most Chinese Rabbits... but enough rabbits. This picture is about an arena. There's a bull in it, inside a torus. A Bull in a Ring. A Bull Ring.

All Done! Now we have made our arena, we can try different viewpoints. We may even decide to try a panorama, cylinder or cubic type.
