It took me a moment to get that one :wink: Very nice!

If there are a few of them left after the next weekend, we’ll know that the praying worked. Do artificial croutons have procedural souls? (I guess, I should probably take a look into the forum rules regarding religious discussions. ;-))

A bit late to the party. Kinda screwed up my time management this weekend and couldn’t finish my entry on time. But better late than never. :slight_smile:

My idea was to have a deformed humanoid begging for mercy to higher beings, represented by the high pillars. I was going to add chains and stuff like that, but I don’t want to delay this yet another day.

I’m glad you posted it anyways! I really like the lighting. Did you use volumetrics or is it just a diffuse light?

It would have been really funny if my entry was directly above yours.

It is volumetrics, altough I’m a bit sad that the shadows are not very visible. I think it is because I forgot to tune the light falloff.

That works so well with the position of the eyes on the croutons! :joy:

That time when they tried to kill Caesar with poisoned croutons. Thankfully, they warned him :wink:
