Challenge #790 (10/08/18) Entries CLOSED

@beau11 Maybe some light fixtures at the sides of the mirror with broken bulbs and glass

Nice job on the dirty spooky look and the sculpting

After reading the description, I was expecting a hairy, muscular viking with a long beard in a wedding dress, stripping his clothes off. :smiley:

@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.

Dragon at the Pool


Cycles, 512 samples, filmic, Grasworld add-on, post processed contrast increase

Nothing more iconic as a dragon for folklore. A little sculpting practice.


The Sword In The Stone

The magical folklore of the sword in the stone, that it can only be pulled out by he who is destined to be the rightful king of Britain.

My Pure Competing Entry, 399 samples and given a glare node in blenders compositor


A Lullaby from the Damned Depth

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).

Character concept is based on Siren’s Harmonics.


Here is my non-competing entry:


Either the hare or the rabbit has appeared throughout folklore as a trickster.

Here I’m not focusing on any single tale but simply portraying a whimsical and stylistic “leporid.”

“Leporid” was used to indicate the family both hares and rabbits belong to.

Pure Blender 2.79, Cycles, only procedural textures (used here extensively for NPR / non-photorealistic, old-world-sort-of illustration style).

Some links for further exploration…



@RobertT, love the render and the shader. To me it looks more like cross stitch instead of wood stamp but the look definitely adds to the appeal for me.

I would love to see your workflow if you have it documented anywhere.

Thank God you don’t compete, nobody else would ever win.

Great image!

The Sword In The Stone

Pure entry, all materials made with nodes.

Sorry @Ansaar13! I didn’t see yours before I started this.

I’m pretty new to the forum, though I’ve lurked for a while. I saw the contest and thought it would be a fun way to do something different than what I normally work on. Thank you, and looking forward to doing more!


It’s all good man, nice render. I like how you included the knight :grin:

Indumentaria de huaso

Things from the “huaso”, a typical character from the countries in Chile

Absolutely pure.
Horn and poncho hand painted in blender. Other textures are procedural.
Details of the spurs also had drawn in blender.
1000 samples with denoiser.

I thought I would UPDATE a classic american folklore: “Paul Bunyan and Babe the blue ox”

I would like to introduce you to “BABY the blue ox” but quiet…, BABY got to go on his very first tree chopping adventure with Paul and Babe. As Paul was gathering all the chopped down trees BABE and BABY got some much needed rest.

Feel great knowing that his nose ring is a clip on.

Baby the blue ox

Mostly Pure, 2000 Samples, and 8 headaches later.


Why the tail has no hair or fur. A mesh only

It does at the tip of the tail. Also my computer was really mad at me for this scene and wouldn’t allow anything else to be added. :neutral_face:

No time or energy tonight

Guri of Iron

Pure entry. Only procedural textures. I sculpted the shirt and the handkerchief since I have no idea how to get good results out of the cloth simulator.

Similar to GIPeN’s entry, my entry depicts the folklore from south Brazil, more specifically the Gaucho culture. The drink is made with mate, and is called chimarrão in Portuguese. This is a very traditional drink in the region. The red handkerchief also has a historical meaning.

Also, I wanted to make a robot so that’s why there is a robot here. If you’re asking what happened to his left arm, he lost in a bus accident.

To be honest, I think I should’ve focused on the cuia (the “cup” holding the tea), as it looks better than the rest:


Oh, I learned this week about the LoopTools add-on, which is incredibly useful for robots and stuff like that. Somehow I get the feeling that everyone knew about it, except me…

It was such a pain combining circles with squares before…

Love the loop tools!
So great right?
I was in the dark about them until a few months ago watching a blender course by Denis Osmanbegovic.

Great entry, and i want to know more about this bus accident!!!
