Congratulations StealthRox! You really captured the evil face of uncomfortable weather. And looking out my window “Rain Rain Go Away” seems very fitting :wink:

Nice helicopter! But how did the pilot manage to fit a fat pig into a desk? :slight_smile:

I don’t know why those sheep remind me of Gremlins, but I like them a lot! That one got my vote;)
Do you still plan to finish this one?

Nice one - as always:) Do you mind me asking how you did the little sparks on the waters surface? Are those particles?

Let’s hope next weeks contest will not suffer from misguided script kiddies :wink:

Thanks, Helge! Those sparkles are all scaled-down / transformed / subsurfed cubes which were duplicated within a single mesh. They have a high Emit value, and they are partly reflected by the water.

Have a good weekend, everyone!


Hey Helge,

Thx a lot for your vote and your comment. I was not thinking on Gremlins when I decided the aspect of the sheep, but now that you point at it, the big round eyes and pinkish skin make them certainly “gremlinesque”.
And yes, I felt so dumb when I noticed the modeling issues once the render was complete that I wanna redo the image from scratch once I finish some other illustrations I´m workin on.


Thanks Helge!! It was raining outside when i was setting up the scene… and i really felt it :wink: and thanks for the Rain too… for getting me zero down on it… :slight_smile:

I don’t know why, but I really didn’t think of reflections. That is a brilliant effect on the water.

Nice to hear that you are still planning finish this one. I think most weekend contest entries aren’t so lucky once the weekend is over :wink:

This weekend I noticed that rain can be a fun thing to do with blender/cycles. And that setting up the focus of the camera can be dangerous in such scene (if you are in a hurry and need to go with a low sample count…)
