I don’t know by just seeing the Theme for this Challenge this Image just comes to my mind so I just made it and the shades of Black and White Gives me the spooky and horror vibes so I just use this theme to show you the first thing comes in my mind.
OPEN used Aviator sunglasses by Kimppo in Sketchfab → licensed under Creative Commons Attribution, had to retopo a bunch of the geometry though spent a few hours just doing that. Everything is done in Blender.
First time joining this challenge, have only seen this last week and man why haven’t I seen this before in my life lol. I wasn’t really sure about the theme for this week but I had some time so I gave it a try. The details are mostly quite subtle since the effect that I went for is old film. The rain on the shades are actually a lot but once the effects are punched in they just blend in :(.
Pure entry, made from scratch in Blender and rendered using Cycles at 1,500 samples.
I haven’t been able to enter the Weekend Challenge for quite a while (years), but have a new computer and wanted to see what it can do as well as get back into challenging myself. It just seemed like fate to enter this since my gamer handle on mic is Shades.
Thanks! It uses vector displacement to shape the lampshades which isn’t supported in Eevee as far as I know. Also the lighting is subsurface scattering with a point light inside each lampshade, which takes a very high sample count in Cycles to get a realistic result.
