That’s an absolutely awesome idea! Love the blender-themed twist

Mac n’ Cheese
Hope this counts as nostalgic! Eevee, 100% blender, wood is a modified version of one from ambientCG, no compositing.

Thanks, i did not want to use existing tamagotchi themes and create something new feel to much work so i throw 2 simple render scenes in.

Also i thought as i create the chain appends, might be funny to animate the arrow on the lcd, just blinking, but iam so lazy today.

Pure Entry
Cycles 1600 samples with some denoising thrown in. It was kinda nice looking back at the previous milestone versions of Blender and how far it has come.

@deltaray You get a +1 for adding in the pencil… :wink: very handy tool of the trade.

I miss seeing cassette and 8-track tape stretched along roads and tangled in bushes.

Nice. I saw a VHS tape once. BTW, if you search for “cassette tapes on the side of the road” you’ll find some amusing stories and pictures. Nice trip down nostalgia highway.

Blénd-Balls


Open, Blender 2.93, Cycles

I’ve seen rigoletto’s Blendagotchi and remembered the pokéballs that I made a few months ago. I reused the model and put some blender-nostalgia inside: Suzanne, the default cube and a donut!

Those Were the Days

I’m keeping the original version on all my social media, this one is exclusively made for the challenge.

Open entry: 1000 samples

The toons were taken from Do Not Stop Me Now :: Supersonic Woman (franciscocharrua.com), and In the Shadows :: Underneath a Gas Lamp (franciscocharrua.com). The set was taken from Ancient Ones :: Metal Gods (franciscocharrua.com). A few other assets were taken from scenes that I’m too lazy to mention :stuck_out_tongue:

Pipes Screensaver


Non-competing (pure). Pipes were made with a python script to make them more authentic :upside_down_face:

Anyone remember this screensaver from windows?
I used to love those screensavers as a kid. :slight_smile:

Pure. I made this in Blender loosely following a Polygon Runway tutorial. Rendered with cycles. Any feedback would be great. Thanks
