Thanks for the motivation and nice comments along the way !
The model is a system of 1000 particles made in blender, obtained through force fields (turbulence, attraction and vortex) and boids physics, and textured through a python script (available here) making Sketchfab API calls to fetch my followers’ avatars.
Will you find yours ;) ?
Here’s how you can try to run the script (I can’t guarantee the results, and it was not tested on Windows):
- create a nice particle system with a single cube set as render object, and X particles, with X = your number of followers
- “convert” it from the modifiers tab
- open the script from Blender’s text editor
- change the value of “UID” at the beginning of the script (find yours on “https://api.sketchfab.com/v3/search?type=users&username=yourUsername”)
- open your terminal or Window -> System console
- run the script
BTW: The number of followers is wrong: I actually only have 972 followers (checked through the API and “html counting”). #sad
