“Archaeology” Eevee, pure, 16 samples

i will say, this is a tough theme. when the theme said, ancient ones, my first thought was archaeology. i wanted to make an image that told a story. i originally had a tomb, but due to the volumetrics, you can’t see it, so i got rid of it. i also wanted to put fire in some of the torches, but for some reason i can’t make fire, the physics aren’t working for me. anyways, i hope you like what i already have. and, if you think you have a solution to my fire problem, here is a thread i made: Fire simulation not working. and if i can get that fixed, ill put the fire in this scene and repost the image here for the contest.

I’m attempting a freehand rendition of Socrates.

Here’s a WIP image, about an hour into it:

For WC 788, I did a quick sculpt of a Socrates head, but I welcome another opportunity to re-approach the subject with a much different (and hopefully better) result in mind.

20 minutes more, a little older…

5/16/20 update, about an hour more of progress this morning…

Nergal - Ancient One

Non-competing (Pure-ish)

Cycles, 2000 samples, filmic, hdri lighting

Nergal -deity of sunset and lord of the underworld. My concept piece and not representative of the Assyrians and Babylonians images.

Wanted some sculpting practice. Probably subconsciously influenced by Doom. The image is disturbing in a Doom kind of way. All new objects with exception of the dragon claw background pieces. They are the cnc models I made for my dragon theme dry bar cabinet.

“Beneath The Waves”

Pure Entry
Cycles 1024 Samples.
Tiny bit of blur added in Gimp afterwards to tone down a bit of harshness in the sandstone material.

here is my (probably temporary) entry:
“Ancient legend”
open - cycles


the blender part (ao):

all made by me on blender, post processing done on gimp. marked as “open” since the entire background is just a photo collage.
found this site on a cg matter tips video, it’s an ai that generates human faces. the texture for the orc’s face, and the general concept went from this photo:

ANCIENTS!
Pure enrty, Cycles 256 samples with denoise node and composting.

I thought doing the tentacles would take a while but I remembered how to them from an earlier project. The hardest thing to deal with was CUDA crashes because I modeled this in 1:1 scale… stopped the crashes by increasing volumes step size and lowering max step.

Hah thanks for the vote of confidence.
It’s most definitely full of problems - you’re welcome to it though. :slight_smile:
Just a note that the foam attribute & material comes in only when you generate and name the data “foam” in the ocean modifier. I can send the screen of that too if you want.
