I believe best is a verb that means to vanquish, or overcome. I can see calling someone the best the same as saying they are the embodiment of victory itself.

Elusive Perfection

Pure (I guess: I used some textures and an hdri from textures.com)

Cycles, 128 samples, filmic, hdri lighting, some post-processing in the compositor.

Sometimes, the best doesn’t exist, but looking for it you can find a new perspective.

Bullseye

Open entry. I used a cork image texture for the board material, an hdri image for the main lighting, a metal image texture to make the metals less perfect, and of course an image of the Blender logo. I am not sure whether this would still qualify for a pure entry, so let’s call it open to be on the safe side.

Open, Cycles “Best Memory”

Grass and dirt texture under it came from BlenderGuru’s Grass Essentials. Lighting is from BlenderGuru’s Pro-Lighting: Skies (I did a little shopping recently). The rest is me.

I’m originally from a wetter and more forest-y area of the country and one of my favorite memories is walking down the street from my grandmother’s house to the corner store with the wet pavement and dead leaves around. When I was kicking around things in my head about “The Best”, that’s something that came to mind, as in “ah man, that was the best…”

Despite the assist on the grass and lighting, I learned a TON doing this.
