a manger for a king

Hey there,

Christmas is coming and so I want to create a Christmas card.
But as I started I figured out that I want to use features, that blender doesn’t support (yet?) (e.g. rigid body collision in particle systems). So after some tweaking with the particle-system I want to give you an idea about what I have in mind.

Again* it should stay in black and white; but this time with different shaders, and not just the diffuse-shader. This time, AO is used. The strong black on the crown is because of the black background. When I switch the background to white, the image is overexposed. Are there any ideas how to fix this?




So what do you think about it? Let me know.

*like in the image for Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

Hi there,

I had some time to work on my project. Here is the new outcome:



I decided to give the wood and straw some better material than just a clay-like look. Experimenting with colors I wanted to have an eye catcher: the yellow crown.

What is coming to your mind looking to the image?

I realize this post is 4 years old, but I really like the design! My church has His Throne, A Manger as the theme for our Christmas Concert. Would you mind if I use your image as the background for our invitations?

Hej Linda_Rupert,

sure. As I realized, I’ve never uploaded the finished result, here it is, titled “the King’s birthplace”


As some might be interested in the artwork without a title.

Would like to use this image for the cover of an Advent Devotional that we are using in our church this Christmas. Is that possible?

Sure. :slight_smile:

Hi,
As in the previous posts, our church would love to know if we could please use this image in our Christmas literature this year? We will credit you as you request above. Is that OK with you?

Hi @Steven,

sure. Feel free to use the image in your church. Thanks for the credits. :slight_smile:
