Snorfle! :rofl:

Not calling dibs, just letting you guys know I’m attempting a close-up of Suzanne’s eye with a forest fire reflected in it.

Let me do the kick-off. Made something pretty simple. Needs some more work on the textures, so lets call it a WIP for now.

Sad Robo - Open Entry for ‘‘Sad day’’

Robot blanket and screen are made in blender. For the eyes I used a photo of a camera lens. Background and color editing were done in photoshop.

Title: The evening before


Pure

The thought proccess. Can I think of worse days? Yes, 9/11, Hiroshima a childs coffiin, a bat cage above a Pangolin cage in a wetmarket; but these are “tragic”, “horrific” days. A bad day is eg: an insummountable pile of paperwork at the beggining of the day. So, my citera where, maximum disappointment for the largest number without any fatalities. No presents at Christmas worked for me. Keeping it topical was just a bonus :smiley:

But There’s No Such Thing as Climate Change

Pure entry, Cycles render, 64 samples & compositor denoising in 2.90.1. Central composition, 1x1 aspect ratio. Used Sapling Tree Gen, one of Blender’s included Addons. I wanted volumetric fire on the trees, but couldn’t get it to work. Thing I did for this that I’ve never done in Blender before: pretty sure I’ve never used a hemispherical emission object with a procedural fire material, and getting a gradient fadeout where I wanted it was enough of a pain that I’m positive I’ve never done that.

I spent days trying to get volumetric fire on the trees to work (and to look like what I was going for, the California wildfires, although honestly I didn’t get that far) before settling for procedural emission materials.

Appreciate it! Especially putting “prewitt” in your post text – it wasn’t quite legible in the image, took a bit of googling to find it was an type option of the Filter Node. Thanks!

NOT an entry!
