BlendMaster's Contest: Procedural Volumetrics - Objects That Don't Exist [Closed]

Ok thanks, I just wanted to make sure. :wink:

I decided to play around with this concept and see what I could come up with. I ended up creating this abstract wallpaper with just one cube and a couple of procedural textures. If you are interested in learning how I created it, I uploaded a tutorial as well.


I’ve been using blender for about 6 weeks. This is my first interaction with volumetrics. Thanks for the challenge. It has helped me to grow my skills (even if it crashed my laptop a few times). Done with Cycles in blender 2.8.


I made this a while back. Took ages to render, but I love the end result.
The scene is a cube and a point lamp. All procedural volumetrics.


Thanks for participating, I’m glad you tried to push your skills to the next level!

I just want to clarify, are you simply sharing the render with the community, or is this your entry?

nice. keep on blending :slight_smile:

Just sharing. I made it over a year ago, so it would be unfair.

My entry inspired by a tutorial of Jonas Dichelle and yours, it’s seems than i posted it on wrong page sorry for the mistake.

Thanks for clarifying :wink:

No problem. Thanks for sharing!

Here’s my entry:

Have a bit of an issue with the smoke Adaptive Domain cutting off the emission effect to the right. If anyone knows how to fix that, it would be much appreciated!

Here’s my entry, created from a single cube with subsurf+wireframe+array modifier, only one type of material (volume scatter), no post-pro. Cycles 512 samples.

Wow. That is stunning!

Rule 8 formulation is confusing if you are allowing glass shader.
You should write that : no object of scene should be rendered as Solid (except transparent or translucent ones).

At first reading, I thought that the only way to obtain an image for that contest was by adding textures to an environment using volumetric shader which can be really painful due to heavy computations that can be involved.
Edit : Oops. I came after the battle.:upside_down_face:

I apologize for the confusion.
