“Sara had to admit: the ‘transform’ button of ‘My First Rocket’ was kinda cool.”


(open: little Sara is an older model of me. The wood texture is from poliigon.)
alternative title: “my first rocket”.

The space station is pure. I finally gave geometry nodes a go and kitbashed some extensions on some primitives.

[Edited: The normals were wrong. so I had to redo it anyway. Fix some lightning and compositing as well. Added Laaaaaaasaars! :slight_smile: ]

Pure - Blender 2.92 - Cycles, 512 samples, 1920x1080

Hello everyone! Although this is my first entry to a weekend challenge, I have followed them for a while and am always impressed by the artwork that is posted. I am still quite new to Blender (and art in general), so any comments, suggestions, or critiques would be welcome. Procedural material advice would be especially appreciated. Thank you!
