The Way Out
Pure entry, 1000 samples.
“The President’s Desk”
These are the first non-trivial objects I’ve modelled from scratch, and the first I’ve UV unwrapped and sculpted. A couple of things I’m not happy with - two symmetrical imperfections on the front of the control panel, and the ambient occlusion seems overboard on the drink cup.
Rendered in Eevee. The background image is a cheat, it’s a real photo of the Oval Office. Apologies to any Trump fans.
EDIT: added a knife and fork at my friend’s suggestion.
What a night! I had a a few ideas - but actually, somehow nothing worked out. Almost all experiments failed, the volumes acted strangely, the noise was screaming / denoising didn’t help and preview and render window didn’t match. I think the whole “in the zone”-thing just didn’t work tonight. In the end, I changed my plan, started over and went with a fast and simple one. Maybe some sleep will help. Good night.
I love it! I heavily considered doing an “alternative facts” entry…
good night springton, there will be no encores
Continuing the discussion from Challenge #885 "Alternatives" (05/06/20) Entries OPEN:
Non competing. Just doing some pics to brighten my room up.
Came up with this. Old models. Lifeboat is printable.
War and Peace
Wanna trash the stage?
no more Alternatives
Pure entry, cycles 256 samples with denoise node. 1920x1080
This is offensive, I don’t think this is the place for that kind of entry
Good choice, he probably would eat a burger with knife and fork
Very good work!
Hahaha now that is great!
There was a story about him eating KFC with a knife and fork, which naturally drew ridicule
Haha I didn’t know that so just checked not-so-trusty Google and found it so I like spreading videos like that. Well-played I never would have been so quick thinking to create that lol
“Weapon of Choice”
I loved the theme this week! My entry is based on some of my favourite video game weapons that are often overlooked compared to swords and guns. Here’s to all the Bards, Beastmasters, Geomancers and Gamblers!
I’m quite happy with how this turned out. I wanted to spend more time texturing the harp and the background, but I don’t think I’ll have enough time before the deadline. I feel like my work is finally starting to get a bit closer to how I picture the scene in my head
Head or Tails? Choose your alternative wisely.
Pure - Cycles - 128 Samples - Non Competing
Even thought I’m not in the competition for this weekend, still wanted to do something for the theme.
This is an animation to explore Rigid Bodies mostly, took 4 photographs from a Coin that I brought back from Budapest last year, that was a really good trip and I wanted to make something special out of it.
Just used my phone to take those pics so the Quality isn’t amazing, but the modeling and texturing was pretty fun and the process with high quality tools would be the same.
Here at 60FPS 1080P
Just used a texture from TextureHaven and an HDRI from HDRIHaven, this is a 5 object scene.
Coin - Glass - Plane where coin falls from - Tablecloth - Passive Rigid Body box
This is offensive.
My first attempt to participate Blender with 3 mth+ since started using Blender for “after effect” to video.
Alternative Flames of choice. Choose between
Dwarf Flame, Frozen Flame, Elf Flame or Dark Lord Flame
Category : Pure (all blender)

Here’s a short video on this theme … just for fun
