Here is a not very original pistol idea to the theme.
This is an “Open Entry” Cycles going to call this one

“The Retired Dueling Pistol”

Narwhals, narwhals, swimming in the ocean, causing a commotion…

Yep that stuck :slight_smile:

haha. That is so awesome. “Just don’t let them touch your balls!”

I had actually seen this before but I had no clue where it came from. It was used by Sprint in one of their commercials a few years ago.

I just saw there is a 10 hour Youtube loop version. That is so going into my playlist to annoy my girls.:smiley:

lol. Yup my girls love it. They are yelling from across the other side of house. I think they are saying to keep playing it for another 9 hours…or maybe to stop. one of the two.

Jedi of the sea you say… :thinking:

I have one question. is it alright to used Norman rigged to go along with your entry and give credit for the rig ?

The Narwhal Twins

Open entry, made using an unpublished project, done in EEVEE 1000 samples. Anyone know how to make eevee use the CPU instead of stressing out my poor 1050ti? That’s why I got a 16 thread 1800x :wink:

That sounds fine, like using make human. Depending on how it’s used it probably would just make it an open entry.

(Dominic Henry) #17

Sure and thank you Joshwinkler3d for answering my question ?

Here is my non-competing entry:


Pure Blender 2.79, Cycles, only procedural textures.

Please click / tap the image for larger size (and perhaps once again to view at full high resolution).

Abstract image inspired by the concepts of matter, antimatter, “Baryon Asymetry,” and “Baryogenesis”:

The Matter-Antimatter Asymmetry Problem

Pure Blender (Cycles @ 500 samples), I’ll be surprised if nobody else wasn’t thinking the same thing! Great theme!

Focus was on modelling, a lot more to do and a few dirty bits but ran out of time for now.

(Edit: Re-saved out using Very High Contrast Filmic setting, original images were way too flat)
