Challenge #853 (25/10/19) Entries CLOSED

Here’s my entry, didn’t get where I wanted with it. I wanted to get in some character work this week but sadly I had a lot of schoolwork and it interrupted my efforts.

Unclaimed Throne


Hello everyone! Have been silently watching for a while and decided to take part finally :smiley: These challenges seem like a very good way to learn without allowing my overcommitting issue to take over :stuck_out_tongue:

“Horror below the ground”
Pure, Cycles (only placed logo with image editor) !


Unearthing the Chaos

Non-competing but pure. Cycles 256 samples + denoising, procedural textures, compositing in Blender, level correction with GIMP.

Dead Space fan art, featuring the Marker relic, made from plane object with solidify + array + simple deform (twist & taper) modifier.


Welcome, nice to have you here. Do i see an ostrich? lovely idea.

Pure, Cycles


Thank you, nice to be here! Yes indeed there is an Ostrich there :smiley: :smiley: i have to credit my gf for helping me favor that idea over another one i had (yes the other one had an Ostrich as well :P)


Non-competing. DC Metro

There were supposed to be trains but they weren’t working out for me. The whole project was biting off more than I can chew really but it was educational.


Suzanne Underground

Pure entry

2.81 beta, Eevee render (64 samples with AI denoising), 960x540 aspect ratio, composition is Harmonious Triangles. Can’t say there’s anything I did for this that I’ve never done before.

I hate my computer. It crashed right after I pressed ctrl+s to save. Now all I have is an empty .blend file. :frowning:

No way I’m going to start something from scratch now…

Ugh sorry to hear it. :frowning:

The autosave didnt have a working file created?

@MatthewK glad to know they allow the gladiators to have a birthday party before heading into the arena. :wink:

Welcome @Manitoadlet, very ambitious indeed. Populating such a scene can be quite a challenge. Speaking of educational I would recommend Ian Hubert’s tutorials they are a good resource world building.

Apparently there is a .blend1 file in the same directory, but since it did not show up in Blender’s open menu I didn’t realize that. So I didn’t lose anything, except that I feel really silly now. :confused:

No need to feel silly, it has bit me a couple times in the past as well. But I guess losing only 2 minutes worth of work is a lot better than the whole thing.

So I finished what I started last weekend, gave it a render, messed around with the compositor, and then I called it finished and closed blender. I went to upload the image here so you guys can see it and, guess what… it turns out I forgot to save the image. :stuck_out_tongue:

This just isn’t my week. I better lock myself indoors before I get hit by a car or something…


If I was to guess, I would say that you regularly work on animation projects.

I actually have no idea how to make an animation in Blender. I used to mess around with Adobe Flash when I was a kid, though.

Do animators frequently forget to save their work? oO

A guess from my part, since when you animate, all your frames are automatically saved for you.
