“There are two main goals for these contests: Fun and Glory.
Fun: You get only 4 days to create a cool image, based on the theme for the week.
Glory: After 2 days of voting, a winner is declared. The winner picks the theme for next week.”

For details please check out the: CHALLENGE RULES

Btw.: Comments are welcome in both threads (entries/voting). Have fun! :slight_smile:

Challenge 6 had the same topic, sad the links are not working:

I’m using valuable comment space to make myself enter this contest. I’ll be really embarrassed if I don’t enter something after saying I will! I’m having ideas about plants breaking through pavement and whatnot, as cliche as that idea of “nature” is.

edit: yes I am embarrassed. Oops.

Non-competing

Nature can be done too easily now with things such as Vegetation, Botaniq, and grass essentials.

This was a 10 minute effort putting plants you would never find together together.

open entry, 1000 samples. I created a prequel to City of the Future :: Circular Fields. Took the scene and deleted all the structures. Added the trees from Fantastic Greenhouse Challenge :: Glass Cathedral and copied the model from Jane Doe :: Wide Awake: I gave her some shorts, and placed very far from the camera, so no worries. Finally to fill in the empty space close to the camera I added the rabbit from Magical :: The Pullable Rabbit.

Title : (Not so) Still life.

Last minute correction: my wife say that fruit worms are not pink! :scream:

clay render

Open: CycleX 512 denoised and composed in blender.

I have modeled the worm, the basket, and the cloth, fruits comes from external assets.

I take inspiration from “worms” game and this image…

Hey guys. I have a scene catching dust on my drive for some time. Is it allowed to rework that and post it for this challenge? I could not re-make that from scratch in time, but has some really nice materials in there. If that is not allowed, I will cook something up for a later challenge :slight_smile:

Thanks for the info!

Sure. Just enter it as an ‘open’ entry and state which parts of the entry have been reused. :slight_smile:
Have fun!

Mostly pure but the trees are botaniq - so open I guess?

[edit] updated version with some details added to roofs and some colour grading in the compositor.
