Pure, cycles, 32 samples, toon shader, optix denoiser, rendertime <1min., all made in blender, tried to water color it in krita but my skills lack there so just a simple coloring in blender which is simple but makes a point.
WIP, the protagonist is still missing
Not sure how i approach it.
Please i have one question. If i used background image to totally background of my entry. Is it pure or open entry?

Even for ‘pure’ entries, using a background image is fine as long as it isn’t the main focus of the image. It wouldn’t be fair to just enter a photo.
(For ‘open’ images, this doesn’t matter at all.)

Don’t Fear The Reaper
non competing (pure), Cycles, Blender 3.3.1

OPEN entry “Flying through
I tried to map the place as accurately as possible but due to lack of time I couldn’t do it.
Cycles 2000s + some post production with Gimp.
OPEN because i have reused some parts of a skydiver used in one of previous challenges.

Pure. Blender 2.69, Blender render. Smoke added post in
It’s been a couple years since I last participated. Had to relearn everything, including how to post.

Hey! Welcome back.
If you are going to relearn everything, this might be a good opportunity for switching to Blender 3.3 (if your hardware supports it).
Pure. The Human Cannonball! I see at least one other had a similar idea.
Had to rework the fire…(

Nice to see you are still hosting Helge.
Unfortunately I am still using the same 15 year old Computer I was before, so anything 2.70 and beyond is out of the question for now.
My human canonball was my third idea. I started with a high dive, then a Hot Wheels stunt track but quickly realized I need something basic until I get my chops back.
Surprisingly, now that my daughter just left for college I find I have more free time than I used to.

Open, Cycles 128s, 100% Blender 3.3
The character base, cloud generator, and sky background are from other projects.
The daredevil explorer and pilot, Mr. Balloon Man, is testing a new flying contraption. He crashed the first time, but he’s trying again, this time with a loop-de-loop.
Suzanne cloud: Why aren’t you wearing a crash helmet?!
Pure, Cycles 1024 samples
The motorcycle was some good hard surface practice, although I’ve never modeled a motorcycle before so it took me a couple tries. The sculpt of Evel himself is pretty simple, and the background of his red, white, and blue smoke machines and the clouds is just a simple painted plane with some vector displacements using perlin noise.
Great entries so far! My personal favorites are
@Gismo_Wander and @Helge. They’re both very out of the box compared to the rest of us and I’m a pretty big fan of the composition on both!
Helge is a great example to me:
His works are always clean and so creativ. It’s a great honor for me to hear my name this way alongside with his name.
Probably more than it should do.

Title: Backyard Daredevil
Pure. Cycles. 3.3.1
Monkey See, Monkey Do (non-competing)
Just another cannon coming through…
Yes, but this one is easily part of my head cannon
@Wayth Love the lighting and grass on yours!
Had not much time, poor Zuzanne had to jump in again
Is this a reference to the movie Kick Ass?
Wow. Way to get the most out of it. Now I don’t feel so bad about using a 10 year old computer.
