Summoning Wrath

Pure entry, 2000 samples with denoising. Feels like I spent a big part of this weekend procrastinating. I’m relatively happy with what I thought was going to be disappointing.

Death’s Basement
Pure - Cycles


Finally finished it, took about 30 minutes to render at 1000 samples. With this one, I really wanted to play around with composition a bit more by having a set focal point and guiding the viewers eyes to it.
I also played around with odd focal lengths and camera tilt, to add a bit of unease. Had a lot of fun with this week’s theme, and can’t wait to see what everyone else does!
Here is the blend file if anyone wants to take a look.

Ritual Crew
Pure Entry

This is ritual crew. Every weekend they do some wired things… I cant tell you more, sorry.
Blender 2.8 + Cycles, simply sculpting, retopo, texturing, rendering with 2 view layers, compositing, fun.

Virhenge

Pure entry
Eevee render (64 samples)

Recently watched a tutorial on a shader node / modifier setup for an electron microscope effect, easily adapted to false color. Between that and this week’s theme I had an idea:

Hell’s Gate

Pure entry. Blender 2.8 + Cycles 256 samples + compositing, procedural textures only.

Just experienced my first ever 2.8 crash. I was using version 2.80.72, and it seems to be affected (not too sure though) by the principled shader that now has alpha/transparency and emission included. Abused them a lot here, worked fine in viewport but once it started render, Blender closed right away. Switched to the previous build (2.80.60) then.

Btw, just checked the website and it looks like there’s a newer build come out today. Yey.

Coffee Run

I think this will do. Pure entry, rendered in eevee. The animation apparently took 4:30 to render?

@Helge You can choose which would be best to attach to the voting thread.

Rite Gone Wrong
Pure
Cycles


After showing a few people my work I’ve realized that what’s going on in my render may not be as clear as I first thought. If anyone wants to have a stab, I’d be interested to hear it :laughing:

I must say, what a great choice of theme. Very fun to work with :smile:

Coffee Summoning Ritual


Pure entry. Everything made in Blender with only procedural textures.

I guess I went with the coffee crowd (even though I don’t drink coffee). All coffee drinkers spread roasted beans on the table before drinking right? It is what all reference images told me…

I think I saw one floating bean, not sure if that’s because I just drank coffee…

Thanks! We went to the zoo last weekend. Inside the desert building they had a whole bunch of Sacred Scarabs on ritualistic duty. These are funny creatures. :slight_smile:

@‘Everyone new to the challenge’: Welcome on board! You picked a great week for entering.

(As expected) Tom’s theme has already inspired a lot of great entries. I guess, we will have a few very interesting voting days.
