Thanks very much. The animation suffers from the quiver problem I mentioned in my question, but now that I see it, it actually looks like this isn't really noticeable, at least with many points as you have here.

Fantastic. I am especially pleased that you have exposed parameters to tinker with here.

@belisarius Yes I was afraid of being asked that. I mean better in the sense of "more similar to the style seen in the book (e.g. in the Flickr images I linked to)". Of course, I expect since you are asking, that this is will not be precise enough! I can say what aspects of the style I'm having trouble replicating though. For instance, the combination of lighting and "salt-and-pepper" noise I am using doesn't get the quite the right density distribution of points. They should get much thicker at the edges, and be more sparse in the interior (at least for the sphere).
