Challenge #809 (21/12/18) Entries CLOSED


Pure eevee, it’s way too simple but that’s what I have right now, maybe I’ll add stuff later, i tried adding mountains but i didn’t like how it looked, then i tried adding silhouettes of palm trees but for some reason the image as plane in 2.80 doesn’t show up in the render, it just works in the viewport

scanlines and rgb shift were added in post

good luck everyone, I’m new to blender and the blender community, so far I’m really enjoying it :slight_smile:

Love this. I was also looking at styles like this to try and minic. Even down to the palm tree shades, as you mentioned. My original background was also a grid but I changed as I didn’t like the final look of it.

Welcome to Nitram_2000 and Maelys031. I really like both of your entries. Terrific.

Great to see a 3D version and the final one. It really helps to see what you actually do! From previous stuff I was never sure if it was 2D or 3D. I love your shading and texturing. Such a lovey look.

Edit: I just saw your procedural texture thread. Amazing stuff there. I’ll be downloading them after the holidays and having some fun with them for sure.

Hi there :slight_smile: , Pure entry

“neon kiss”

It’s my first competition, so sorry If I somehow misunderstood the rules.

everyone is writing about samples so here its 512 samples in 4k resolution, denoised and then scaled down so I can upload it here.

Thank you for your honest feedback :slight_smile:

Here’s an updated look at the 3D View:

I do find myself wishing I had more time to spend on this project to refine it further.

I spent a while experimenting with materials. For example, almost everything (energy, etc.) on the main character develops through one fairly complex shader (a bird’s eye view):

But that lead to less time on the render refinement side of things.

Glad to see you participating in the Weekend Challenge! I look forward to seeing more of your work!



This was a great theme! Ended up creating something I never would have expected!

Non-Competing, Pure(ish) I reused an old character model of mine.

"Sweet Dreamer"

I’m extremely happy with how this piece turned out! And I had great fun creating it too. The original idea was much simpler and I just kept adding to it until it became what we see here.

The background is a procedural sky, and the wings and flower are using a fresnel effect. The character herself has a tiny bit of specular( if she has to much she reflects things I don’t want) with no roughness making her reflective, with an emission plane behind her.

I then did a bit of post processing to make the colors stronger and add some bloom.

Hope you enjoyed that quick rundown, and hope you like the art piece even more! :slightly_smiling_face:

Here’s the “Neon Nightmare”, the seediest dive around.

This is a “pure” entry. adjusted brightness up in post. that’s all. Rendered in eevee (figured I oughta get used to using the new stuff). All textures are procedural, the ground has a image texture mixed in tho.

-EDIT- the paper on the door is also obviously not procedural

I like the theme this week
