Yay, I can now continue Sarr’s adventures! I already have a story, I just need to figure out to how capture it in a picture that I can make in a short time.


Open entry ant was from the Mountains WC ( I had already rigged it so it was easier to pose.) Done in Cycles custom blender 2.8 build I am beta testing for a guy.


Render time for this on regular 2.8 at 500 samples on a laptop with an i7 with 16 gigs of ram and a 2gig nvidia mobile gpu was close to 1 hour. In the beta testing version the render you see in my entry took a mere 1 minute and 39 seconds. I am sure on my desktop pc it would have taken merely seconds.


I am sure you will come up with something awesome.

how to participate in this contests…? ( how to join this ???)


@sivag No requirement to join, just get your entry in before the close of the entry period. It is that simple. You are already a member of the site and that is about the only requirement to become a participant. Just once you submit your entry specify if it is an “Open” or “Pure” entry. The thread header to this challenge has links in it to find out more details about the Weekend Challenges.

Interesting theme. Ill make my second entry on this one. Looking forward to see what all the creative people here come up with :cowboy_hat_face:

OPEN entry “no title”


Thanks :slight_smile: and Thanks. I always did think that Suzanne reminded me of something, then it hit me. Mojo Jojo :wink:

Here we go… work in progress snapshot. Hope I can find the time to finish!

Here is where I got this to. Brave the Storm. The only thing done outside of blender was the small splash in front of the boat. A simple paint and smudge. Rendered in Eevee.


Kraken Rising

Pure entry. Blender 2.8, Cycles 256 samples + denoising + compositing. Ripple effect made with wave texture instead of wave modifier.


WIP : save the duck !

Going down the cute route rather than a serious one because at the same time have to finish yet another cute character/scene. That, and maybe trying to fiddle around with EEVEE if time permits.


Awesome stuff there. Reminds me of the movie “Perfect Storm” Hope my little ants weren’t on that boat.

I’m making an oil platform.

Not an entry

Oil platforms are complicated… and huge. This render is no where near the size and complexity that real oil platforms have.


Day 28, Eevee - Pure Entry


Nice! Very close to my idea for this week (although I can’t enter). Looking forward to seeing the finished piece!

“Stop pollution”
v2.79b - Pure entry
All made in blender except the enviroment texture, that is taken from the www.

All get wrong with the fluids, preview always fine, but baking in higher resolution and it flows in the bottle and through the beach. Didnt figure out why, wasted two nights of baking. So i get the most usable wave from the first frames and emptied the bottle.
The poor bird is a simple solidfied shape, subdivided and threaten with a lot of proportional edit and a hair shader for the wings.


GPU render time: 19m24s (samples: 256 denoised)
Win7 64bit
Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz
8 Gbyte Ram
Nvidia Geforce GTX 660 (2Gbyte)


"Mare Serenitatis"

non-competing (open => reused the astronaut from #818)
2.8, cycles (512 samples + denoising)
