Open Entries

OLG: Forbidden Magic

(Cycles, 5000 samples, filmic, hdri lighting, graswald, MB lab base figure, Paintshop Pro for border, texture and color correction.)



fcharr: Wild Magic

(Open entry, 2000 samples. The ground, grass and the trees are taken from http://blender-weekends.franciscocharrua.com/Fantastic-Greenhouse-Challenge.Glass-Cathedral.html. I tweaked the material and grass to make them a little more believable. I got the clouds from http://blender-weekends.franciscocharrua.com/Crop-Circles.Spacebillies.html. Made a few minor improvements. The staff and clothing are new. Despite almost everything being reused, I spent quite a bit of time on this: Still have quite a bit to learn about rigging a character.)



ColiN00B: Mystic Cavern

(Open Entry (used assets from blendermarket.com like graswald and botaniq for the plants (some are edited) and textures from poliigon.com))



SHADOWSTORM: Kraaz

(I used here my favorite technique, that involves lot’s of png’s and some realistic grass.)

I voted…

@Rhodexa achieved a great material on the mushrooms, I tried initially at something similar and couldn’t get it right, you nailed it!

@cinek_r9 love the mood of your image, very urban grunge.

@Millani amazing, reminds me of Portal. The leaf material is great and the “eye” fits with the look of the head really well even though it contrasts with the organic look.

I’m so happy to read that, because i actually made the scene to test materials and boid particles!

You all made an amazing job! i wanna be like all of you soon :heart:

So many cool scenes… I whent with the following…

@ColiN00B really like how there are many colors, but its not overwhelming. The island (its self) which the tree is on just pops for me and make the whole scene.

@SHADOWSTORM looks good and tells a story with out the need for explanation.

@dragerx001 i just cant stop looking at this image. The circle, as simple as it is, really drive it home and changes the image from something abstract to something “magical”.

I’m out of the WC for about a year or longer my PC went black screen it’s in an infinite bootloop I’m trying to fix it. :unamused::no_mouth::dizzy_face::exploding_head:
If I can’t fix it I’ll have to get another PC.

That doesn’t sound good. Do you know if this is a hardware or a software problem?

This just happened to me a few weeks ago, and I’ve seen this many times before elsewhere.

First, I’d always check the basics before making any changes (video cable connections, monitor input settings e.g. HDMI 1/2, SVGA, DisplayPort, power supply cable connections).

What I did this time around was unplug the computer (an Asus all-in-one PC), hold the power button for about 30 seconds to discharge the system, locate the CMOS battery, carefully remove it for a few minutes, and then put it back it.

I then plugged the PC back in, and started it up, got back into BIOS settings, set the secure boot (UEFI) and hard drive settings / boot sequence, reviewed the other default settings, set the clock (date + time), and saved the changes to BIOS. It took a couple of times to get it all right.

After restarting, it’s been working well since, and holding settings. If it doesn’t retain settings, then it’s usually the CMOS battery needs to be replaced. You can read more about by searching the Web for cmos battery boot loop.

Best of luck with that! I hope you get it working again!

I’m know about the cmos battery I thought about taking it out to make the PC lose its memory that’s basically what it’s for it helps to keep the pcs memory. my dad and I used to rebuild pcs a long time ago the cmos battery is like a huge watch battery. :sweat_smile::grin::+1:

@ColiN00B, Congrats! Beautiful render.

It seems remind me the artwork by @SynaGl0w:
