I don’t know what I’m going to do but nasa has a lot of assets you can use so I made this as a test

Edit: NOTE TO SELF, your computer CANNOT open a 3gb 64k texture of the night sky, you fool

Here’s Earth on Saturn’s rings with accurate scaling


Also, fun fact, If you could stand on Saturn’s atmosphere, you would weigh about the same as on earth.

Very philosophical! Or did you forgot to include your render?
(Or is it just not shown to me?)

I established what my entry will be before starting it.

I used a deserted planet to show that it’s one of the last places that we’d ever explore

Solar Scale


Open entry (very open) I didn’t make any textures, just scaled and rotated the objects and tweaked the materials.

I was trying to decide what to do, got distracted, made the entire solar system. The objects are to scale, the distances are not.

“Low Poly Enterprise”

Open. All modeling in Blender 2.69 but a bunch of post in paint.net, so calling it open.

In trying to think out of the box my first idea was an old west saloon in a modern setting, calling it “The Final Frontier Saloon”. Got of to a good start, but again, way too ambitious for a WEC, so I whipped out a low poly Enterprise in about an hour, including post work.

I didnt really find time to do 3d stuff these times. Started on Friday with this, but i intensified learning japanese and coding an app there is not much time left. So i will skip participating here for some time.

But i will still come and vote and answer some user questions in my breaks. :slight_smile:


Thought about grim looking teddies attacking with lollipops, maybe defending with a brush and toothpaste :smiley:

First stop sign to the Final Frontier road

Non-competing (Open)

Setting up a refueling/stock location at the moon will probably give us the best chance of making it out to the greater unknown.

Here’s my submission Final Frontier, I’m beaming it up.

Not sure how pure it is (Cycles) - the astro photo and Earth are downloaded from the internet, a bit of touch-up in GIMP. The text is a screen-grab from Wordpad (I found Blender text somewhat uncooperative).
Also, I got close to the end and then pieces ended up all over the place in render, although the viewport looked just fine. Apply transforms, reset origin, remove parenting - none helped. Eventually I had to Ctl-J join things to keep them in place.

In fact I had to redo and reload because the yellow chevron on the engine pod wouldn’t cooperate.

Das letzte Frontier


non competing (pure), Cycles, Blender 3.3.1

I never noticed this before, but if frontier was a German word (consisting of “Fron” (~corvée) and “Tier” (=animal)), it would describe a poor animal forced to work for its landlord. :slight_smile:
