And a few additional details from @MayhemTilda:

Synonyms, if they help : “Jane Doe” (for females) are multiple-use names that are used when the true name of a person is unknown or is being intentionally concealed. (OR) such names are often used to refer to a corpse whose identity is unknown or unconfirmed (OR) such names are also often used to refer to a hypothetical “Everyman”. (OR) any meaning suits the theme.

A Jane Doe in Chalk Outline

Pure entry, Eevee render, 64 samples in 2.92.0. Golden Triangles composition, 5x8 aspect ratio, 35mm focal length, grayscale. Thing I did for this that I’ve never done in Blender before: grease pencil, hand-drawn, demonstrating why I’m a 3D artist! :flushed: For purity I made the chalk brush texture fresh in Blender.

JDSuzanneChalk017packed.blend (1.5 MB)

ChalkNoise003.blend (1.0 MB)

Edited to add: just in case somebody doesn’t get the crime scene chalk outline trope, here’s a link.


Breakfast Killer stikes again

Pure, cycles 256 samples, rendertime ~1:30min., opendenoiser, all made in blender, only procedural textures

“The Baker Paper”
Today is another sad day in Baker Town. In the morning a slaughtered donut is found at “Grandma’s Inn”. The victim is the half eaten ‘Jane Doenut’. Left in her bloody strawberry jam she died at age of just 2 days. This case is just similar to the first few month ago. Is a serial killer between us? The cops are on alert. We appeal to all donut lovers. Please eat us up, enjoy us fully so we can go into donut heaven.

update: improved the strawberry jam and the table cover


"Deer Doe Skull"

non competing, Cycles (128 samples, adaptive sampling, NLM denoising), Blender 2.92.0


Old crime scene photo

Pure - Cycles, 200 Samples, rendertime ~ 6 min.
I used textures in the compositer to simulate the old look. And a ColorRamp for the sepia color.


Wide Awake

Open entry, 1000 samples. I hope no one minds the nudity.

You know I think you can better. It’s hard to say exactly why one nude is art and another is tasteless, but somehow this is low on taste. I challenge you, as an artist, to start over and do a pure entry that raises the level a bit.
