Challenge #816 (08/02/19) Entries CLOSED

Hi guys,

Love the theme! Immediately wanted to take a non human perspective on the apocalypse and wanted to focus on the human role in this. Normally it’s aliens coming to earth but maybe its us all along. Not sure if I will finish on time because I haven’t done anything with underwater scenes before but i’m gonna try :stuck_out_tongue:

If anyone has some ideas for doing the water + bubbles + plankton floating in the water feel free to jump in cause I am just trying stuff and haven’t gotten it right yet.

This is my in progress scene:

It’s just the main characters + simple gradient bg with nodes

To do:

Water+floating stuff and plastics
ground particles
lighting
squid stuck in plastic bag for background
Fins of main characters

_Not going to make it :frowning: _

Lovely stuff already. Working on something myself for this. Been a few weeks since I’ve entered.

Pure Cycles (1000 samples) - “Road Closed”

Trying to learn some basics about lighting and making a decent looking render, so just a simple model but made from scratch using good searches for “road block” etc… (going with a very mild view of the apocalypse - roads would be closed I suppose :smile:)

You Can’t Kill a Dead Man


Pure entry. Numbers on the numpad and text were made with Inkscape, the rest was made with Blender using procedural textures.

This is based on a system from the Soviet Union called “Dead Man”. It was supposed to launch a counter attack in the event that high ranking officials were killed in a surprise attack.

Old version

Hi everyone!

The theme for this week is very interesting. I’m looking forward to seeing your entries!

It’s simple, but it’s well made. The lighting is perfect.

The four horsemen

This is my Pure entry. It is inspired by the bible’s legend of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Each horseman has a color and a weapon that has a symbolic signification (death, conquest, famine and war).
128 samples in 2.79b
Procedural textures with two pictures for the bump maps.

beautiful!

Maybe the value will rise above 0% next week. For this one things aren’t looking very good, indeed. :wink:

It does! If history hadn’t played out the unfortunate way it did, Freddie would probably have gotten an invitation to the Ayreon project. I’m not sure if he would have accepted the offer, thought.

My entry - Apokalypse NOW!

Another take on the film of the theme title.

Only had a few hours to try and fire something out but I had great fun making this. Modeled a couple of heads, did a super simple smoke sim, and I couldn’t figure out the render layers. So yeah, I’ve learnt some new stuff. :slight_smile:

This one is my new favorite. All your art is wonderful though.

Phenomenal render.

I’ve updated my entry. You know, yesterday I thought my entry was complete garbage it wasn’t even worth to compete with it, but I’m quite okay with it now. I guess not everything is doomed. :slight_smile:

thanks! I am very proud of the result. I think I managed to do something good with the lighting this time!
