Challenge #290 Voting CLOSED

This week’s theme: An Everyday Object in an Odd Setting or Situation

Pure Entries

RobertT and Jeeps definitely take the cake. Those two created possibly the most beautiful/visually appealing renders in the WC’s history, or at least in the recent past.

Really incredible work guys.

It was a tough choice but in the end I chose ben’s toaster. I liked my mousetrap but the everyday nature of the toaster and its setting is a good idea and well-executed — I can’t tell if it is being hung for blasphemy or praised for its warm nature.

Very good entries and tough competition this week.

ForTe’s just sucked me in, I’ve had dreams where I almost didn’t make it to the toilet or I’m naked in front of people, I wouldn’t want to end up both out in that field going in a toilet in the middle of a field bolted to a rock.

Jeepster’s look so photoreal, it even looks he could’ve done it by taking pictures and putting them together.

RobertT’s is good like always.

CD: ha…kinda,
the background and lava texture is just the uv-> project from view, mapped to a picture

Jeepster: I do like the lighting, as one of these guys pointed out. You mentioned you photoshopped some of the lava effect… what about the background? Is that a photo of mountains, steam, and fog… or did you crank that out in blender?

oops… i posted this question just as you were answering it :slight_smile:

BUT! its the image not the meathod…remember that now

jeepster: i will jot that down. i’m always open to advice from more experienced artists :slight_smile: nice image, jeep.

I like Ben’s… it’s good, darn funny too.

Winner: ben with 32% of the votes



Congratulations, ben.

looks like a tie to me :eek:

Apparently not at the time the polls closed. :wink:
