The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing. -Isaac Asimov

Sometimes inspiration comes at unexpected moments, in unexpected places. In my case, it's not unusual to find me drawing something on a sheet of paper to fight boredom during a class or a seminar.

Today it was something else.

Our Java teacher was two hours late due to transportation problems caused by snowy weather, and after a short while checking out the usual things on the Internet, I said to myself "this could be a good moment to build up those poor 3D skills of you". I downloaded and installed Blender, and started modeling a finger. "Just focus on the material, human skin is always a tough one"; "That material looks nice, but it needs some texturing";"It looks so empty, add a ring"... Two hours later (after the teacher finally arrived), four fingers and one ring were rendering on my screen. I was actually surprised myself, because I never thought I would be able to make something like that in such a short time. When I got back home, I added the cloth, and some filters to enhance the final picture.

It's far from perfect and lacks detail, mostly on the modeling, but I'm proud of it and wanted to share it with you. I hope you like it.
