When I first saw the theme, I had no clue what to do. A search will help.

This looks like an interesting theme this week. I will see what I can do.

I started working my scene this morning it’s looking good right now, I’m using eevee this time.

Does anyone know how to get eevee to render in 4k I been having problems with blender crashing when I try to do 4k renders in eevee

I remember seeing an early entry a few years ago, with a link to a WIP.

Ok I figured it out bloom won’t work in 4k render

There is literally an anime for every thing :smile: but it is open to your own interpretation @Anam_Shahid, whatever you choose it’s a great chance to use art to let people in on how you express your ideas.

Ya, it’s like @Le_Pirate said you can interpret it how ever you want as long as it’s in some way related to the topic

Vanguard - Air Power


Cycles, 250 samples, smoke physics, denoising, filmic, HDRI lighting, Post processing Paintshop Pro (minor color correction and border)

Have a very busy weekend so just a quick render with some of my models. Three of the five models come from past challenges. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing all these amazing craft fly and they are always a thrill to see.


This is what I’m working on, I’m going to call it Policea after I get it done.

I was thinking of league of legends video after I glanced at a Subway tutorial.

Had to find the dimensions so it would be to scale so everything is to scale. :yum::grin::eyes:

The cube in the back is my refrance for the height of a person at 5’ 5"

Been fighting with the camera all day couldn’t find a the angle I was looking for finally decided to go with this angle.


Cycles 200 samples | Pure Blender 2.8

“We are humans, we come in peace, our power generator is broken.”


Pure entry rendered at 1000 samples 1920x1920. Just a quick samurai mask i modelled and sculpted. It relates to the military aspect of “The Vanguard” theme as the samurai were at the forefront of their warrior class, and i felt like it would be a good fit.


What would be the closing time? Will it be today or tomorrow??

Pure. The vanguard unit.
Modelled and rendered in Blender 2.8. 750 samples.
Tank textured in SP.
