While there are no changes from last week, it might be a good idea to give them another quick read to pick up anything you may have missed (like file size limits - not mentioning any names :P)

NASA news:
This picture have been taken recently at 2200 GMT in the space by a undamaged station. Some South America and Middle-East have been evaluated.

— What NASA haven’t revealed that the earth is about to be facing the destruction unless they invent something extraordinary to defeat themselves… —

This picture is completely PURE entry.

Unlike nearly everyone else, I’m not trying to destroy the world…

Pure. Everything’s new, and apart from a 70 pixel bitmap, it’s 100% blender.

Check out my entrie, the can took about 10 minutes to model. All other time was spent on texturing. The soda took forever to make it look good, it still doesn’t look as good as i would like. It was done completly in blender and textured in the gimp.

tell me what ya think.

Here is my entry for this challenge. It was completly done in Blender. The textures for the earth I have from http://gw.marketingden.com/planets/earth.html.

:smiley: :smiley: My first entry :smiley: :smiley:

ok… this is a building in a storm getting hit by lightning and creating a fire…

this is a pure entry. All modelling is done in blender and textures are all procedural except for the walls of the building.

you can see the picture here: http://d52477001.freeservers.com/photo.html

this is my first entry to the weekly competitions. I’ve been using blender for about three weeks now and the image took me about 1 and a half hours to create. This is not yet the final image and some feedback is extremely welcome. (i will probably get 0 votes but hey!! who cares. it was fun…).

ok…i updated my pic… added some puddles and put in a bit of blur…

Damn that’s good imgranpaboy. :o

We’ll see if I can finnish my entry in time, but methinks I won’t beat that one.

And if you make a replacement entry I’m gonna scream.

This is some of the scariest destruction to think of right now !!!

This entry is pure.

This was done completely in Blender completely with particles, the only non-particle object is the ground. All textures are procedural and the only post process is a little motion blure on the shock wave in GIMP. There are around 50,000 particles in this image.

Can anyone hear me? America’s matter-antimatter engine has just blown up, sending out great waves of gamma rays, obliterating everything it touches.

I think I’m going to restart my entry…
My apple was never going to look as good as that :frowning:

That’s what the Weekend Challenge is all about. Have some fun, and maybe try out that new technique you’ve been thinking about lately. From the looks of the entries so far, I doubt that I’ll get much of the vote, but I’m entering anyway - I’ve got an idea for a style I haven’t seen done in blender before…

Smerity: using [img][/img] tags with tripod won’t work. You’ll need to use [url][/url] tags, and either set up a basic page for your image (preferred), or have a copy/paste warning with the link. Another option would be to contact acasto, who’s offering blender related web hosting that will work with [img][/img] tags.

I think the Earth is doomed :o

Destruction of the planet by a rather slower method.

This is a pure entry.

Ok here’s mine :smiley:

Didn’t feel like destroying Earth so I chose the other important thing in my life :-?

All Blender, some textures made with Photoshop and Windows2k :o

The dialog

‘Are you sure you want to format C:’

should have two potions:

‘Yes, sure’

and

‘Ok, let’s go’

:smiley:
