For new members: if your entry/post doesn’t show up right away, that might be due to blenderartist’s auto-moderation feature. Your post will show up eventually. However, this can take some time (hours). So, if you are close to the deadline and your entry is caught by moderation, just send me a PM including a link to the image. I’ll try to add it manually.
Btw.: Comments are welcome in both threads (entries/voting). Have fun!
Here is my WIP work. I am taking the small world theme to an island rather than the “terrarium” ideas other people have. I want to make my scene into a small island community, isolated from the wide world far away.
The thought process behind it is. Have you ever thought maybe all the worlds are just created by a giant super being and the universe was just created and laid out by one giant game of marbles? (probably not but still interesting )
This is my PURE entry “Tiny world of atoms” Rendered with Cycles 1024s. At first I made large scale city destroyed by Atomic bomb but later shrinked it to fill terrarium like bottle to make it even closer to the theme. Nuclear blast made with Smoke/Fire simulation. City and trees made with particle modifier. Background image is from HDRIHAVEN best hdri site i have found so far. It took 6h to render. Sorry can’t render higher resolution to show city details due to render times. Maybe I will add closeup later.
If you will have any questions about workflow just ask.
A plastic model train station by the tracks, with those tiny un-detailed smooth people figurines. A young man is talking and gesticulating to a woman who is turned away with an upturned nose, as if you say, “shut up”
A tight shot of a Christmas tree, adorned with ornaments, tassle and fake snow. we can see 2 tiny ski tracks in the fake snow, and then in mid air a Chrismas ornament person with skis on jumping off a bough doing a daffy.
Great start! One note about hands. They are really tough to pull off, and I’ve seen a lot of pieces kind of ruined by a poorly made hand. Consider no hand and just make the scene even more chatic and animated – and all in the child’s imagination.
