Think if you adjust the scale of the felt texture it will probably look closer to the real thing. Realistic pool table felt is kind of hard to get right. Especially when viewing it from a distance it always seems to look flat despite it actually being woven thread.

I agree, also revise the UVs they look stretched in the edge bumpers

@Peaceful.Whale here is a thread that has a decent starting point showing nodesto make a starter procedural felt like material.

Don’t Kiss Me Goodbye

Non-competing and open entry. Cycles 256 samples + denoising, procedural textures and compositor. Used MBL add-on for the hand, the girl portrait is taken from earlier 2D work: Illusory Waters.

Kinda busy and tired, scrapped two earlier ideas as it seems too much work so here’s a quick and meh entry instead.

Here is my entry.

“The Artist”
Cycles - 1000 samples, denoised.

The first thing I thought of when I read the title theme was Prince, so I created this little version of his insignia. I played with a velvet material for a while but I couldn’t get it looking like I wanted it to look. So, here is my first ever play with the hair system. I have to say, I really like the result. Maybe I’ll have to create some fuzzy dice for more fun. My crappy modelling means that the fur isn’t really all that even :slight_smile:

I just realised that, when viewed upside down, it’s a little bit phallic :joy:

This is really pretty!

(Midnightcpu) #44

Thank you :grin:
The character model has 2,000,000 verts and
unriggable that’s the only problem I have.
Need to make a low poly version and bake the
hi-res to the low res will take to long where been R&Ring and it still needs hands and feet :see_no_evil::speak_no_evil::thinking:

Here is my non-competing entry:


Pure Blender 2.79, Cycles render, procedural textures + image texture made in GIMP.

The title, having multiple meanings here, is also intended to reference the lack of a mouth on the robot (which I mentioned in my earlier WIP post above).

Image in the left background is an inexact approximation of the world-famous 1908 artwork by Gustav Klimt (Der Kuss, or, The Kiss):

from green to Gene :wink:

(Millani) #47

Haha, reminds me of that scene from Lady and the Tramp.

Is the critter escaping an attempt to eat it, or getting in the way of a kiss? :slight_smile:

The only thing I’m missing is a heart-shaped background.

(3dnotguru) #48

Cycles 512s. I know it is hard to see here but lot of texture painting and particle systems have been used :wink:

any way.

here is my first entry for a weekend challenge on BA.
It’s a 3d-interpretation of a painting done by Pablo Picasso (Le baiser, 1929).
It’s pure blender with only procedural textures, just used Gimp to convert it in to jpg.
