Challenge #1007 "Daredevil Stunt" (07/10/22) Entries CLOSED


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. :slight_smile:
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.


Attempt #2

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?!


Last Jump

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 :sunglasses:

@Wayth Love the lighting and grass on yours!

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.


Thanks guys, glad to have you around. It’s a nice little community we have here. :slight_smile:


@3dnotguru, how did you make those rocks? They look so real! I’ve been in Blender for only about a year and a half and would love to learn some new techniques.


The greatest show on earth! Check it out:


Me too - I’m wondering if this was a photo, it’s so real. But then the repetitive elements make my eyes buggy, it must be generated… Plus, the rock is more “ragged” than the real photo. Fascinating.

Awesome entry. I love the shading and the intricate details on the bike.


Thank you, I appreciate it!

Yes, kind of. The shoes look so empty, and just a size nunber looks to boring,
so i remembered it from the movie.
The jumper is a bit from One Punch Man.
