Challenge #15 Voting - CLOSED

Current Challenge Status

This week’s theme is: space

How to vote: look at all of the entries, pick the one you think should win (based on whatever criteria you like - eg. theme interpretation/image quality/noob encouragement/etc…) and vote for it in the poll at the top of this page. If there are only the results at the top of this page, either you’ve already voted, or voting has finished. Also, if you’re undecided between choosing a Pure entry and an Open one, you’re encouraged to pick the Pure entry - other than that, just ignore the Open/Pure classifications.
Easy, huh? :slight_smile:

Pure Entries
everything blender…nothing else

X-WARRIORWOW I am the first that post his entry!!
I named it: Destruction of our space! (the explosion at the back is a supernova)
Pure The only postprocessing is those white light coming from the explosion:

NEOHeres my Pure entry, its an underworld high commanding officor who is rebelling against the evil of the underworld which has taken over earth, he is being persued by satan after freeing slaves, all he can do now is escape, deaper and deaper into the space of hell. Its mostly for this contest and mostly blender. Except for a bit of compositing in Photoshop.

Blender goes into orbit with the new Blender Open-source Space Station!

It’s worth it! :wink:
Oh, plus it’s 100% pure Blender, with b.o.s.s. texture in gimp and earth textures courtesy of “J.H.T.'s planetary pixel emporium”

@cePure…and eh…I suggest you duck…those lasers burn!

macounoCaptain she’s gonna blow!
Pure My very first attempt at DOF motion blur sorta like. Completely blender, completely new models and all, well apart from the tiny text at the bottom. I put that in with paintshop but I think that’s forgiven icon_wink.gif

pofoWell, here’s mine. Glad I finally finished something for the WC again :slight_smile:

@ndythis is an image of a space station being hit by asteroids.

nerddogsPure with a little Photoshop for some of the text and the blender texture cd.

basseok. here’s something a bit different…
it’s PURE, all done in blender, by me, today.
there are some places here and there that needed a bit more work, but I’m getting too tired now… and tomorrow I have no time working on this anymore… so I just decided to post it as it is… hope you enjoy it…


Open Entries
Cativo[list:b213c5d18c]Actually two images…first one is the latest/entry. All done in blender, but it’s Open cause I already had the model…

Whew! That took a little longer than expected!

Things we learnt this week:underscores in hostnames upset the organiser

BBCode doesn’t like ( or ) in urls

a rule requiring that entries must be jpeg is necessary
