I’ve had an idea for a while of Suzanne as theatrical tragedy/comedy masks – gonna give it a shot. (Not calling dibs – I’m sure there’s plenty of room.)

If I do the opposite of what the theme says, am I still following the theme? :thinking:

:drum:

Theatrical Suzannes

Pure as-the-driven-snow entry (even the textures baked/painted in Blender 2.8 after the challenge announcement). Cycles render, 64 samples with AI denoising, 8x5 aspect ratio, composition is Harmonious Triangles. Thing I did for this that I’ve never done before: remodeling facial expressions. Can’t say expressions are my strong suite (autism spectrum), but I’d say happy-making Comedy Suzanne’s eyes came out reasonably well (Tragedy Suzanne was easier, I just deleted the faces around her smile, turned it upside down, adjusted the angle, and remade the faces around it).

Slow day here at work so I was able to work on this quite a bit. @Anam_Shahid had a similar idea I see!

a bit unrelated but

anyone have any insight on this?

Fire and Water

Non-competing

Eevee, 128 samples, hdri lighting, filmic, animation, fire physics, particle systems, dynamic paint physics

Not quite the opposite but definitely on different camps. My idea was small meteorites hitting a small body of water. Small splash and equilibrium again.

This was an exercise in Eevee practice. I haven’t really played with it much.

Cycles, some texture painting, nothing special
Couldn’t understand how circular/along path array work in blender so i rotated every bolt [bolt factory] manually :frowning:

You can use this trick using object offset setting on the array mod and an empty object :

Been wiriting a simple tutorial of it long ago :

Remember to set/apply the scale and rotation of the object, one key step that sometimes neglected. Hope this helps.
