Some really nice entries here, Miatpi you got my vote, very cool entry I love it.

Helge, I’m disappointed no entry from you :*(

Best of luck everyone.

Great entries everyone! Was hard making a decision and even then I just closed my eyes and clicked a tab out of the ones I liked and then voted it.

Question - what happened to the entry that looked like a pumpkin field? I don’t see it in voting or in the entry thread, but I’m sure I recall seeing one there.

Oh Well, vote is in.

I tried to make one this week, I wanted to try and create something similar to a cubism style picture, but couldn’t pull it off. My brain doesn’t not think well in low poly.

Guys stop doing so good entries, It is really hard to choose one :smiley: DM9 you got my vote. What did you use for background if i may ask? Or how it is done?

My vote goes to the The Voxel Fox made by DM9 as well! I like it a lot.

Well I guess since the entries are now over and voting has started I will share what I was going to do and see if it gets flagged or requested to be taken down. I am on my old laptop so I don’t have the drivers in the speeder but I have them on my other laptop.

Too bad you could’t post it in challenge. Disney have such restricted copyrights that you can’t even do an image with SW character or scene from movie?

No I just didn’t want to tread on thin ice and after copyrights and trademarked stuff was brought up I figured it best to not do it as an entry to the challenge despite having so much fun making it. At this point the worst that could happen is for it to be requested to be taken down and I will comply. Just copyrights and trademarks have kind of gotten out of hand mainly due to those who try and prey on someone else ideas or works. But no worries. There is always next challenge :slight_smile:

I’m waiting for your entry then :smiley:

As long as you are not making money off of it ( and there is no monetary reward for the weekend challenge), and as long as you are not trying to pass it off as officially related to the IP, it falls under the category of fan art and you will be completely legal and have no problems.

Nice entries everyone!

Are you sure? :slight_smile: [It may be non-competing but I consider it an entry nonetheless.]

Good question. It probably was replaced by another image. (I hope I didn’t miss it.) There have been a lot of changes and updates this week. (Maybe, this has always been the case and I just didn’t notice it before. I’ve been tracking this more closely this week.)

At first, I thought about making some kind of art joke as an entry. E.g. an abstract painter in a voxel world who paints realistic images which would be considered abstract by the standards of voxel beings. In the end, I didn’t develop this any further as I spent too much time enhancing the voting post generator script . :wink:

@robproctor83 Thanks! I love your entry btw. The lighting and volumetric effect is plain awesome.

Fulip you got my vote, and apparently not just mine. :wink:

Best wishes everyone.

@Ryeath The pumpkin field was my original idea for my entry but I ended going with something else. I kept trying to add things to make it more interesting, and I didn’t like anything I did to it so I just came up with a different idea. Here is the image I removed.

@bazevedo: yes there it is. Yeah, the pumpkin field is great but the skull-thing is definitely the better enty. It’s just awesome.

Thanks for the votes, guys. :smiley: … My vote went to Fulip, atmosphere, composition, story, it´s all there. Great job, man.

@skadoosh. It´s just a background image. Basically an overlay of a gradient and a paper texture for some more grunge. I rendered the fox on a shadow catcher plane so it could be easily composited later on.

Thanks for the update bazevedo. I was starting to question my sanity.

My vote went to str11 and their awesome Formula One car. I thought it was really well done.

Ugh, I made my first animation with this weeks submission, I made a little clip of the camera panning around the city. I left it to render while at work today and it looks like… Something went wrong! When I go home I immediately noticed that Blender was closed. I went to the exported video and to my surprise the video was there! However upon opening it I learned that it was corrupted, so I am assuming Blender crashed in the middle of the render… Yikes…

So I guess to get around this in the future I should probably just render to still images and then recombine those in some video editor, like blender :slight_smile:

@robproctor83, Yep animations are tricky! Best way to make sure you don’t lose any renders do to corruption is to render your animation as pictures and put them together after. Than if it crashes you can just start it up where it stopped.

(would love to see that animation! If you can get it to work.)

@robproctor83 Learned the hard way :smiley: Are you rendering on GPU or CPU? Can’t wait to see that animation :smiley:
