“(probably sunken)” lol

If your lighthouse wasn’t abandoned, this would never have happened. :slight_smile:

Micro displacement is really worth looking into. I have been using it several times over the last few weeks and it has saved me a lot of time (and pain).

Thanks! And I have no idea what the protruding object really is. But fortunately the theme contained the word “mysterious”, so I don’t have to. :slight_smile:

@purbosky
Nice! Reminds me of Star Trek 5. [No offense. ;-)]

@fdo
That is a surprisingly friendly/colorful nightmare. (On Elm Street.) :slight_smile:

@danchristie25
Great first entry! I haven’t checked the poll results yet, but I guess this is going to get a lot of votes.

@bit biter
I have no idea what this is, but if I saw it somewhere outside, I’d probably remember it. I guess that is what makes a good landmark.
Nice job (and first entry), keep it up!

@RobertT
I’m sure, Erich von Däniken didn’t see this one coming.
Thinking about the entry: Did they predict blender - or was Ton Roosendaal already around back then… ? Mysterious!

@DoriNori
We almost made it. Just a few parts missing. Like last time - this has been fun! thx

@Helge, RobertT. I love those images! (Like most of your entries to be honest)

Nice entries everyone. I did not have time to participate, I had in mind some Suzanne monoliths, I thought someone else would think the same :slight_smile:


(rarebit) #5

I think 3dbi needs some Band Aid

Helge, yours is familiar, but I can’t place it yet, it’d get my vote if was included…


(purbosky) #6

Thanks! Wasn’t thinking about any references when making it though, lol.

Either that, or the ship is invisible…?


(Helge) #7

Thanks a lot. Maybe we’ll see you back in the game this weekend? :slight_smile:

You are probably right. But I don’t think this will work without Michael Jackson.

Thanks for the virtual vote. :slight_smile:
I have no clue where the idea came from. Thinking about it know, maybe all those Tim Burton trees have something to do with it…

With robwesseling’s invisible wolf from two weeks ago, this actually makes sense. :wink: We might be onto something here.

I used a phone app to add these together, so the quality isn’t great :stuck_out_tongue:


(YAFU) #9

@Helge, maybe next week

@DoriNori, Here yesterday someone shared something that might be useful…

Anyway I am not sure if this has been done in just one weekend :smiley:


(RobertT) #10

Nice entries, everyone!

Helge: LOL. The power of Blender goes back to primordial times…

YAFU: Thanks so much!

RobertT


(rarebit) #11

@Helge, I keep getting the image of a woman dreaming whilst being influenced by aliens, visions of their home planet…?

Maybe MJ’s gone but old Bleeding Gums is still out there in the ethernet…


(Gordi) #12

I just couldn’t leave well enough alone. The Ship is a png off the internet so I guess this isn’t pure anymore. :stuck_out_tongue:



(Helge) #13

Where are all those ghost ships coming from? Spooky indeed!

Doesn’t ring a bell… but sounds a lot like Outer Limits.

And that should be enough for anyone. (Just like 640k.)
