I present … Nervous ginger!

Will our hero survive the blazing candles inferno? The bite of the knife ?

It’s a first rough draft at the moment and still a PURE entry.

To do:
forgot material on the red buttons and the candle holders
Candle flames are very … not flammy for the moment.

To fix:
Top frosting could use a bit of sculpting
The gingerbread man doesn’t appear very nervous.
Unsure about the background, having a dark one is helping push the ambiance,
but this one isn’t in the holiday/birthday spirit.

Note: Being the first poster is making me nervous!


This is awesome!!! Don’t worry about being the first poster this is going to be amazing…

Yeah, ya don’t want to mess with the gingerbread man. He has a really big friend that will kick some serious butt.

@nule ROFL I about spilled my drink when I read that comment. I wish!! Even in gif quality I would be super proud to call it mine. But alas that itty bitty company DreamWorks might have an issue with that. :wink:

Haha, I did recognize the footage, but it is perfect for the challenge!

Nice theme, Almost anxious to find out what everybody comes up with! :stuck_out_tongue:

This is my entry, character comes from blendswap iirc. some corrections + post proces within PS. So lets call it open.



Here is my mostly pure entry, using images from online but doing the modeling and texturing myself.

Title: “Worth the View”


Unsure i should add update in a new reply or in my first post but here it goes:

Didn’t have much time today. Made new candle fire (mostly playing around existing tutorials)
And did some render layer test to render the fire but couldn’t never get it to composite correctly because of transparency.

More tuning to go !

Thanks beau11 and FlyingBanana for the comments!

@MadeWithFeet Don’t cake knives always have a saw/teeth/whateveritscalled?

Had to double check but, not always !

Serrated cake knifes are used for “soft” cakes where the outside is harder than the inside. Birthday/wedding cake (so mine should be serrated haha).

Non serrated knifes are for harder cakes like nutbread/cheesecake.

Thanks for the reply, i’ll go fix my knife!

Attack of the Space Steampunk Octopus

Houston, I think we have a problem!?!?!?


Cycles, 1024 samples, filmic, post clean up with Paintshop Pro

Simple resupply mission is attacked by the space steampunk octopus. Shock and surprise and a bit of incredulity from the pilot as he reports to mission control.

Reused one of my octopus models. The Earth is a hi-res image.


A Sanitary Situation



I guess that’s one way of looking at it :smile:

Your computer is not thirsty it does not want orange juice


My school has an intense water near computers paranoia, probably for good reasons. The blue screen of death is how I knew my old laptop and still makes me break out in sweat every time rip

hello hello its my first challenge please dont yell at me


Here is my non-competing entry:


Pure Blender 2.79, Cycles render, only procedural textures.



Jaw Run

Pure entry. Cycles 256 samples, procedural textures, compositing in Blender.


@joshwinkler3d Haha, good idea!

@SonyaSheina nitpick but is the dangerous situation, the computer or the bottom right filled glass in a teacup?

@RobertT I really like the image tone.
