Sorry guys, I thought I replied to rarebits pm yesterday with a new topic, but I apparently sent nothing out. I asked that the topic be:

Hopefully rarebit can make it official today.

Hmm i never knew this word was a thing…

Literal (floating on water) : (of a boat or its passengers) floating without being either moored or steered.

Figurative (lost) : (of a person) without purpose or guidance; lost and confused. * From Google.

Take as loose a definition as you want, there doesn’t need to be obvious direct link to the theme.

this is a good one :slight_smile:
dont know if i can finish my scene in 3 days or not.
takes me 4 to make the model im going to make.
might cut corners to get done.
all i can do is try.

ok i’m rendering my scene but i looked up definition and i’m kind of :confused:

1.(Nautical Terms) floating without steering or mooring; Drifting
2. without purpose; aimless
3. off course or aimless

my scene might not coincide with what your looking for

Cycles pure. 500 samples and minor compositing. Border added post in

Good luck everyone, looking forward to some great entries.
