@rarebit, I think there is a repeated image in the end.
And thank you for taking your time to organize this competition every week.

here’s the entry for mik1190

Thankyou both, sorry, I was in bed already before I realised I hadn’t done it, its why I was still up too, :smiley:

Gordi, I will get around to a new set of rules soon…

So many amazing entries! I voted for greengiant83, but Evivivi and FriZan’s entries made the choice very difficult for me. An awesome week for the Blender Weekend Challenge.

It’s funny how you took my post title (which was a joke as I’m new to the forum) instead of the provided title (is it because the provided title was crap?)

I took the obvious… even though yes I had made the true distinction when I read your post previously…

BTW, I wrote a script to automate as much as possible, which grabs the title if it exists…

Finding a good title for an image in my opinion is not really straightforward, that’s why sometimes i omit that.
Anyway @rarebit: thanks for correcting my entry and giving a title for it :smiley:

Photox: just curious, the milk shape is 100% simulation?

edit: @ Photox #10 : thank you for the explanation!

Wonderful renders, everyone!

Definitely one of the most visually stimulating sets of entries we’ve had in a while :yes:

Today I rendered some new HD views of my project:

HD View # 1

HD View # 2 (the exoplanet)


Mik, not simulated at all, all modeled. One half of one spike was modeled, mirror, array, curve (circle), all applied, loops bridged, disp, and MR sculpted a tiny bit. I think I went overboard trying to get too artsy on it.

It is nice to see so many entries this week! I like every one of them. In the end my vote went to FriZan’s “Liquid Colors”. It is chaotic in a great way - and if you look at it long enough you start to see all kinds of shapes, e.g. people or animals. (Well, maybe I should go to bed now… :wink:

Also: “Welcome!” to all the new competitors. Nice to have you on board! Keep it up :slight_smile:

@RobertT: Brilliant (as always)! I hope we’ll find ways to explore and visit worlds like this for real. On the other hand, we should probably learn to keep it together at home before starting to stumble through the universe…

@Helge; Thanks! Also, this was a fun theme.

I ended up voting for Evivivi. Everyone made something colorful, but that one is almost blinding in its colorfulness. Great job!

Thanks, Helge!

It’s really exciting to see these kinds of worlds being discovered, almost regularly now.

And you’re absolutely right about keeping it together before getting out and about the universe.

Technologically, humankind has made amazing progress in relatively short time, but there’s much to be learned, many basic things yet to be balanced and understood.

But it can and must and will be done if we are truly to be long-term explorers of the cosmos. So many stars, worlds, and sights to be seen, and all the incredible discoveries to be made. This is endlessly inspirational stuff.

Isaac Newton had a great quote, which I alluded to in my entry for WC 581:

“I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.”
