Right in the feels :neutral_face:

Quick question… if I use sapling to make trees does that count as pure?

Short answer: There is no agreement on that.
Really long answer: Updating the Rules

In the end, it is up to you. It is always nice to be transparent and mention what was generated by add-ons and what was made by you.


Ok, thanks! Looking forward to this!

This has Edgar Allan Poe written all over it.

If I use CC-0 textures would I still have to make my entry open?

As I understand the rules we are allowed everything Anyone can have access to for free. so in my book using cc-0 textures make an entry qualify for pure.

of course it is always nice to mention what you have used so others can have access to it too.

We are all here to learn.

It is really hard to think of something for this theme that hasn’t been overdone yet…

Textures are not properly covered by the rules, only models. License doesn’t matter.


I’m baking with ideas unfortunately not the skills to express them into blender :sweat:

In My Tower

Pure entry, 1000 samples.
Amazing entries all around :slight_smile:

Non competing.

I’ve been doing a study over the last few days in compositor.
No geometry in this image. Pretty sure that violates all sorts of rules.



These challenges are a compromise of what we wish we can do, and what we can actually do. Just keep at it. A few years back, Helge’s entries looked like the stuff I make right now. And back then, I wished my work was as good as it is now.


Here is what I have been working on. It is almost finished.

The procedural nebula background is from:
I will modify it a bit more to get exactly what I want.

No time this weekend but still wanted to put something together. Re-used my octopus from an earlier challenge. It has an armature so its fully poseable. I was torn on whether to go with a glass of wine and a cigar or the rubber duckies and a boat. Finally decided to go with the G rated version.


Hi everyone !

It’s an open entry due to sapling add-on and the Makehuman character.
