Starfighter Suzanne

Pure entry, Eevee render, compositor effects in 2.90.0 beta. Composition is Rule of Thirds, 3x4 aspect ratio. Yes, that missile started with the Default Cube (the white bit in the center still is). Inspiration: Galaga.

Ret Row

Pure entry 2000 samples. Retro mixed with death row, since those arcades were designed to extract quarters from you while being addictive. Nothing compared to the 20K bill that parents get once in a while these days.




Ah, what a nice Theme, my first thought “Make a flipper”, but taking a look at the needed stuff, the weekend to short to paint or cleanup/stitch photos for it. Maybe i go with a low poly own design.



Pure Entry
Rendered in Eevee

Took me longer to make than expected. Always having trouble with eevee and irradiance volumes lol.

Will probably animate it too when I get the chance.


“Good old Days”
Open (grass essentials and some grunge textures)

(first iteration of render)


Cool I have a good excuse to do a scene from Tron


non competing (pure), Cycles, Blender 2.91(alpha)


Im not sure if i missed something in the rules but am I allowed to submit 2 entries?

Many things are a bit unclear. But there actually is a rule for this one. :slight_smile:

“Only one entry per person is allowed. If multiple images are submitted, only the most recent will be used for voting.”

So, you can submit one competing entry and as many non-competing ones as you like. Have fun!

ok thanks!

Title: Forgotten Fun

Open: MakeHuman and Arcade image from the internet.

Had a hard time trying to “color grade” the arcade image and the two makehuman characters and have it all blend together and look good… so… i found a work around… Cartoon Tron it :slight_smile:

No color grade…

Attempt to color grade in blender…


1000 sample
non entry the bear model is old model i thought i could reuse it here :).


Ghost arcade

pure render cycles 512x512 tiles it took about 2 hrs and sprinkle an extra hour of me just sitting there and trying to think what I should improve. The arcade game title is called “Wake to the void”. Which is what sun wukong the monkey kings name means and it is also a game name on gamejolt which was quite fitting. It is also a phrase with quite cool and deep meaning. All in all it took 41 minutes 12 seconds and 42 milliseconds to render! The ghost arcade was meant to be old and dusty so thats why there is some volumetrics and particle dust effects with a touch of depth of field!


Donkey Frogger
A mix between Donkey Kong and Frogger where Donkey Frogger takes revenge on the cars that ran him over with his trusty suitcase. Lol…

Currently non-competing because it’s unfinished. Will hopefully update later…


Title: Mall Arcade

Open entry
I’m new here - not sure if this counts as pure or open, so I’ll err on the side of caution. The man is from here. All the other models are my own. Wall, ceiling, and floor textures are from texturehaven, HDRI from HDRIhaven, screen textures are procedural.


Title:object of power classified:The demon arcade machine!

Entry: Open
Render: Eevee
Modeling: Blender
Textures: Procedural and from cc0textures and substance painter.

I was inspired by the game control look and the idea of possessed object. So I came up with the idea of a possessed arcade machine :japanese_ogre:


Space Invaders

Pure entry. Everything made in Blender.



Eevee, this time everything 100% made in Blender.

I used grease pencil to make the swoosh design. Had quite a few issues with it: when converting to curve or mesh, it would only appear as thin black lines. Also couldn’t figure out how to scale thickness on z axis without also scaling on y axis… I wanted it flat… like a drawing, but it is actually quite round. Any tips on how to improve this would be appreciated.
