I hope you had Happy Holidays.
Sorry this is going to be a short one, being gone for a few weeks really put me behind at work. I usually try to read what everyone is doing with their image in the entries thread. This time I didn’t, sorry if I missed some things.
Flying Banana – Cue Smithing
At 1st glance I thought this was a photo, Great job modeling and shading. I know time is an obstacle, some wear and tear will really enhance the photorealism (if that is what you wanted to go for). Great Job!
Fcharr – On the verge
I love the colored fan blades. (Just went to Google to see if computer fans like this exist, they do, I want some now). I am currently “on the verge” of building my new computer. Nice Job!
ARC9 – Blender
… and what a great tool it is. I love the colors, Reminds me of an old Video Copilot tutorial I saw many years ago. Simple and well executed. Good Job!
3dnotguru – Best Tool
Haha definitely hit the nail on the head with this. This is by far the most important tool. It took me a minute to see what the carving in the wood said. It would be just a little easier to read with the camera tilted down a little. Good job.
OLG – Super Power Tool
Oh my, this reminds me of a NETFLIX doc I saw a couple years ago. I think it was called “the bomb”. It shows all the declassified footage of Atomic / Hydrogen bombs, underground, above ground and atmospheric test. It incredibly frightening. Good job on the image.
RayVelcoro – Swiss Army Knife
Beautiful model and render. I saw what you wrote about lighting and I could not agree more. Another thing I would like to note about photorealism is imperfections. I think some smudges and small grime would help the image tremendously. Great job. Congrats on the win.
Sid_J – A needle for a hundred pins
Good job on the shading, I like the plastic cover and how the pins are arranged. Did you use physics or did you manually place them?
Purbosky – Concentric Apparatus
I really like this scene. I love the rolled up paper and the small Blender logo on the eraser and ruler. Not much to critique, I think you did a great job.
Maelys031 – The ultimate tool
Yes I agree money just might be the ultimate tool. I think the picture is a little too dark, also some back lighting might help things pop out a little more. It’s a little hard to tell what is going on.
Atomvar – Optical Mouse
Haha I like the pun. That mouse seems scary to me. I think I will stick with my normal boring mouse for now.
Peacful whate – weekend challenge
Nice job with the keyboard, I really like the lighting on the side of the buttons. To help the image a little more I would add a back wall and turn down the glossiness on the wood table. Good Job.
David Speer – Stage for a new dawn
I love when you do scenes like this. Great mood lighting and again looks like something that I would print and hang up. Great job.
Green3d – man of tools
Good job with the modeling. I recently got my 1st tool box and some tools for Christmas. Its funny how things you could care less about as a kid become your favorite thing as an adult.
Midnightcpu – creation from 3D
Awesome job with the modeling. I like how the printer is printer Suzanne. I see its printing Blender 2.8, was 2.8 used for this scene?
Millani – forbidden knowledge
Beautiful atmosphere. I love the idea and the execution. I would love to see your portfolio. Do you have a website or ArtStation?
Vaukalak – Toos Case
Ahhhh yes, this is very close to all our Tools for the job. I love the cup of coffee (in fact brb going to get some……. ) Ok I am back now, on to the critique. Great job with the modeling and shading. I really like the smudges on the glass. Good job.
Nitram_2000: Eveolution or war tools
Nice image, and very scary to see how the weapons advance over the years. Wonder what the next super weapon will be?
Helge – Im a doctor
I don’t understand the title but I love the image. I really like the stitching and the mood of the image. As always great job.
I am not saying this is my favorite image of yours but you really seem to be getting better and better every challenge. I love the wood shavings, fantastic job, I am curious of your technique. I tried doing a similar scene and I couldn’t get the shavings as nice as yours. Was a particle system used? What about the big clump of shavings?
Robert T – Flat head dread
Very cool trippy image. I always love your color schemes. I am curious at what point in the process do you decide on the colors you’re going to use? Is this decided before you even start the image?
Sorry this was so short, I will give some better critiques next week. Now I just have to figure out what I am going to do for “My Hometown”.
