Cheers :slight_smile:

The beauty of size

This is my PURE entry “Solar prominence”. The idea was to show Earth visible from Mars over the surface of the Sun when prominence occured to show how big it can be. The sizes and distances are physically correct mostly. I have used cycles with lot of fire. Hope you like it.
Waiting for other ideas to see the theme potential.

Have you tried to do the whole solar system to scale… some what disappointing, well annoying if I remember right.

No I did Sun 1 blender unit wide and scaled other distances and sizes assuming that sun size 1unit = ~1,4m km. So I created only Sun, Earth with volume scatter atmosphere and camera. Long time of fire simulation and rendering was the worst thing.

Here is my non-competing entry:

Scaling the Cube

Pure Blender (simple cube + empty-oriented array and wireframe modifier; raw OpenGL render with matcap and viewport DOF enabled).


@3dnotguru, your entry is my favorite so far. I love working with volumetrics, I would do it more often if it didn’t tend to crash my computer. I’m also very fond of simulations.

Sculpting exercise…while i can improve the small details i think the overall look won’t improve much more, for now.

Pure entry: Oversized mane

This image too is OpenGL+matcap+blender compositor :slight_smile:


This time I forewent rigging, just pure mesh editing. I’m relatively happy with the result.
Pure entry, cycles, 2000 samples.

“Crystal Bonsai”
Cycles. 1200 samples.

Just a little taller…

Pluto, Dwarf Planet!
pure, cycles (300 samples), blender only


Nice HDRI.

Big Fish

EDIT: Misread the deadline. Oh well.
