I might use a scene from my movie script on this one don’t know yet was leaning on something else I was thinking of. :thinking:

Hi everyone, I’m new here… how and where do i submit my entry?

Hi! Just post your image here. That’s all. :slight_smile:
(You can upload or paste the image directly into your post - or embed one from an external source.)

Can we post more than one entries?

Sure - however, if multiple images are submitted, only the most recent one will be used for voting. I’ll add the other images to the non competing entries, though.

The Better Halves

Pure entry. Every thing is modeled in blender (as it is pretty simple). Table textures from poliigon and cloth texture from a random cloth image.


Funny, I also thought about doing an avocado. :stuck_out_tongue:

Oh… At first I thought I would do moon, or a heart shaped locket may be or a fruit… And then it occurred to me that an avocado was quicker to make :smile: (also my kids won’t let me do much so…hehe)

Pure entry, I may have started with the title this week. Thought it was catchy.


Title: On My Way
Open because of hdr and textures


Its for you to decide if it’s open or pure.

Usually if I use anything outside of blender I call it open, but I could call it pure to because technically when you bring something into blender it’s part of blender. :grin:

Makehuman is kind of in and out of blender for me, because it’s not makehuman when I export it as a dae so when I import it it becomes blender then I use it for sculpting or shader testing. :no_mouth:

But in the end it’s all for you to decide. :+1:

Not necessarily. For me, it depends on the scene and on how much the HDRI contributes to the final image. If the image consists of nothing but the HDRI, calling it pure would feel a little awkward. If it is just providing some lighting/background and everything else has been built in blender and for the challenge - entering the image in the pure category probably will not hurt anyone. :slight_smile:

But as @Midnightcpu wrote: You are free to choose. If it feels right, it probably is. :wink:

Pure Cycles - “Orange” - ~1000 samples

Simple one this weekend as not much time. Need to learn how to properly texture a sphere from a photo - I used this texture -


It was kind of funny a while back ago.

When I was going to enter a short film contest I was trying to go by the rules here in the WC and I started thinking " wait a minute there are no rules on animating outside of the WC. !?" :thinking::scream::no_mouth::drooling_face::dizzy_face::speak_no_evil:🤷 :yum: :smirk::eyes:
