Open entry (everything is a reused model except for the cowbell and stick), 1000 samples. I once believed folklore was a Portuguese word, corny music and corny costumes, the video I linked pretty much embodies the whole Portuguese folkloric music thing.
@texasfunk101 looks great! Only thing that seems to stick out to me the most is the ripples in the water especially at the center of the image. It looks a bit pinched almost like when you add a primitive sphere and then subdivide it, the pinching that happens at the tops and bottoms of the sphere. I don’t think that is the case though when I zoomed in on it I just think that the ripples may need a little more distance between them. But that is just being nitpicky. Again awesome entry.
Creating your own grass and such essentials is really pretty fun and rewarding in the end to say you didn’t have to use someone elses to get the result you got.
Viking folklore has said that there was no Viking more powerful than Thor and his mighty Mjolnir. However when it was taken from him by a mighty giant the only way for him to get his mighty weapon back was to dress as a woman and marry the giant that stole it. At the wedding ceremony the giant had gone up to his bride to be ( Thor in drag ) and set Mjolnir down. At that moment Thor ripped off the disguise and grabbed Mjolnir and took out the giant.
@Millani Hahahaha I about spit coffee all over the place. That is quite the image. However the folklore never said anything other than him revealing his true identity or tearing the disguise off. So who knows, maybe Thor did take down a giant groom while in his birthday suit.
Open entry, Cycles 512 samples, procedural textures + compositor. Base model is imported from DAZ3D (as it has easier controls over face expression) and edited for the self-made part below the torso. Hair is edited from the one in The Temptress (WC #782).
