After 2 days of voting, a winner is declared: The voting will close on: Wed, Feb 26, 2020 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:

Same, this was an amazing weekend to be a part of! So much good art!

@SHADOWSTORM Really do love that glass hurricane!

@3dnotguru Your scene looks like it’s straight out of a movie!

@dragerx001 Yours really reminds me of the Arrowhead water logo, nice work! I think I preferred it without the fog, but they’re both really great!

Should I be open?

After reading rradarr entry, I too used the Sapling addon, it never used to mean it was open, has the WC got all strict now?

It hasn’t, that’s why there are differences in openness and why you don’t need to worry abut it :smiley:

Possibly the largest group of really high quality entries that I’ve ever seen! The WEC bar has been raised up high this week!

So many great entries this week and I didn’t expect my poor quality entry would get so many votes.
Now I feel ashamed that I haven’t rendered it in better quality.

I’m just going to close my eyes point then vote. :see_no_evil::sweat_smile::v:

Really good work everyone. :+1::v:

Whispering " Maximum Effort ":superhero:

So many awesome entries this week, it was hard to choose.

Just wondering if anyone else looks at these renders and mentally starts placing objects to recreate the scene in their head? I mean, half the fun for me is trying to figure out how the scene was built and drawing inspiration from that. Thanks, guys!

Also, miketche - Thanks for including my house in your render!

Determining the whether something is pure or open has almost more been left as a decision for the artist to make rather than a hard and fast rule. Use your best judgement of your own work and efforts and decide accordingly. This competition is for fun anyways, hopefully nobody gets hurt feelings or feels cheated by others.
