# How to make walls be covered with tiles with different shading?

I am new to blender and already searched on google but didn't find a solution. I would like to create a round ball (and remove the lower half part but I know how to do this) and fill the face of it with flat objects like squares or triangles...

(triangles will look like:

\/\


so two triangles build one square)

Here is a picture from cerebro from the x men films. It is build of squares. I would like to achieve something like this:

• Thankyou for your comment ;) I added a picture. Two triangles in different directions together build a square. – famemaker Mar 29 '16 at 11:50
• /\ and \/ next to each other. it's a bit difficult to explain because i am from germany ;) – famemaker Mar 29 '16 at 11:50
• I think there're 2 main steps - first, by making walls (which form a spherical or non-spherical, whatever object) appear as tiles, and then make those tiles being shaded like that. I'd say you should construct tiles somehow first, see this question for some details, and once tiles are ready you make them each shaded differently. – Mr Zak Mar 29 '16 at 11:59
• Are you trying to get something similar to this? i.stack.imgur.com/m828W.png – Georges Mar 29 '16 at 18:04
