After 2 days of voting, a winner is declared: The voting will close on: Wed, Aug 28, 2019 11:00 PM.
The winner picks the theme for next week.

If the winner doesn’t supply a theme before Thursday 22:30 GMT, the organizer will select the theme. In this case, the winner’s theme will be used the next time we are lacking a theme on Thursday 22:30 GMT. :slight_smile:

Having selected the theme, the winner will not be eligible to enter that week. They may however still submit an image, but it won’t be included in the voting.

Great entries everyone. Awesome job!

Couldn’t enter this week, school started. Fantastic entries all around though… @Photox how did you do the skin?

It’s sculpted with dyntopo, vertex painted with some grunge and a vertex mask on the neck muscles that mixes it greener. It’s a principled shader with about 20 percent SSS. Voronoi and colorramp into bump node for some pores.

Hi Blender friends, I want to share with you how I made the hand on my entry. I had the idea but lacked the skill, had to improvise. Have a laugh.


Good work everyone and congrats to the Winner when that comes around.:grin:

See you next WC.

It got the job done, that’s the important bit. That’s not lack of skill – there’s no need to put something into the scene that’s not going to show on-screen.

I agree with @KickAir_8P if your not creating a full scene don’t put what you can’t see in it, cut untill you can’t cut anymore words of Ryan from Film Riot but that was for film making I’m applying it to still images. :grin:
