Humm havent done one of these in a while, maybe this will be the weekend, could be a cool topic! :cool:

Hmm decided to give Cycles a go for this week-end, and guess this is what I got out of it.
Let’s call it:

“An Abandoned Alchemist’s Cabinet”


Cycles is definitely interesting, and I kind of like it’s approach of materials. Sadly no support for my graphic-card, so it’s rather slow (after 5 hours of rendering 400 iterations, still had to manualy move huge amount of white pixels) And couldn’t figure out how to get volumetric clouds, or hairs to render, so had to rethink big part of the idea. (Could’nt really figure out any idea to get fire look even remotely fire)

Might be I have to re-try this one with blender internal at some point. Anyway haven’t had time in ages to toy with blender, so it was nice experiment :slight_smile:

“Avatar”

It has been a while since I submitted my last entry, but I personally think this is a descent comeback:RocknRoll:


:stuck_out_tongue: rendered in cycles.
