I think that some chill-ass renders will be great for all of us in this odd, uncertain time.
Let the winner of this one bring peace to every soul that gazes upon the featured row :open_hands:

(Can I say chill-ass here?)

Serene

Final entry! Open, 1000 samples.

Decided on a title, the theme can be both a name and an adjective. Spent a generous amount of time on the clouds, they look a little amateurish, consistent with my character rigging :wink:

Spent time messing with her hands and also getting her to smile. After applying armature and a bit of the subsurf, she’s back to looking a little sad. Will try to comb her hair without making it worse.

Open entry, 1000 samples. The theme sounded like a girl’s name, so I jumped at the opportunity to work on my humanoid model a little more.

I’m very busy this week, unfortunately, so I won’t be able to participate with a new render. but I’ll let a contribution on this non-competing entry:
“chill”


It is a test render of a time I tried to edit Spring’s rig, adding a body and trying to understand rigging. I didn’t learned much, but it was fun and i ended up with this very wholesome and chill render :smile:

It can be done in just seven steps

  1. add sphere - call it Earth
  2. add sphere - call it heavens
  3. add sphere - call it atmosphere
  4. let the Earth have textures
  5. let the heavens have textures too
  6. let the atmosphere have volumetric texture
  7. go back to space station, relax and watch this serene view

Here is my entry…

8-BIT SERENITY

Pure Blender 2.82, Eevee render.

I was thinking back when days were so much simpler and beautiful, simply enjoyable and natural. THis thinking motivated my stylistic choice here as well, back to time computer graphics were much simpler and beautiful in their own ways.

Ask any normal person if making 8-bit pixel-art in Blender is possible and they will say “No way!”.
Ask @RobertT and he will say “Sure, why not?”. :upside_down_face:
