Here is a quick description of what Lucid Dreaming is for those who might not know.

" A lucid dream is a dream during which the dreamer is aware that they are dreaming. During a lucid dream, the dreamer may gain some amount of control over the dream characters, narrative, and environment. "

So it is basically using Blender but without being able to save your projects. :stuck_out_tongue:


What does “Lucid Dreaming” mean?

Ah, thanks Rhen! How could I model something like this in Blender though?

I have the same question lol


I picked the wrong week to do my first challenge. This is gonna be hard lol



I’ve just seen the movie (again) a few days ago, so this was the first thing that came to my mind, after reading what lucid dreaming is.


dang it… only if i have enough time to model what I saw in my lucid dream. it’s quite a beautiful scenery I’ve seen. it’s simple and pure.

Open entry: Don’t feel like breaking my CG Boost work flow. One of these days I’ll get my female character right. Till then, the internet will be laughing along with me. 1000 samples.


Started reading a new book tonight, Atlas Shrugged, as was reading about Hank Rearden I thought of my favourite song…

Row, row, row your boat,
Gently down the stream.
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
Life is but a dream.

    Pure, Cycles, 2048 sample, 6 hours to make (not counting render time) - Texture for table top was a downloaded image, all the rest is me.
    Here’s the render, have an animation in mind, hope it will be done before closing time.

And here’s the animation i would like to submit (if possible)… 212 sample which is too low for the smoke/mist, but render time was long enough.

haha… started the same thing, for the same reason…
Started last night, still have a ways to go…

@OrganicAdapter I like how your starting to light yours (and how the shadow is), looks really good.



:blush: :blush: :blush: My First Made. Always in My Dream.



Reminds me of a dream I’ve always had before getting ill… Falling and things change from soft to sharp…

“Flying” - pure, cycles (PP in blender and photoshop)

The highly toxic fruit of Belladonna, Henbane flowers and hemlock. Some of the ingredients in the flying ointment european witches used late at night to induce hallucination and leave their bodies to fly.


Nice entry! Some time ago, I did one of these for #787 (“Cutaway”):


Thank you!
That’s a very cool image! The deadly nightshade is such a striking plant :slight_smile:

Guess what my entry will be about…

Yeah, how much albedo my brain gives off…

’Transition Transmission’ - Pure - Blender 2.8 / Cycles

“Sometimes when a person is dreaming, they are unable to tell if they are dreaming or not. This may put a person in a large degree of peril, if they are in a dire situation and they cannot tell the dream from reality. In such an instance, you must not dally. You must immediately take hold of the situation. Convince yourself of your ability to prevail over the situation… You must become the reality.
