Pumpkin party
Pure, cycles 512samples, rendertime ~15min., optix denoised, used motion blur to give the spooky pumpkins a bit of motion feeling. Unfortunately i did not curved my boolean cut out faces, it looks a bit weird in the end.


Some improvements, mainly lightning and focus.

“Wipe Your Feet”

Pure - floor texture is from ambientcg.com and HDRI from polyhaven.com, I made everything else myself in Blender this weekend.

[edit] - I’ve made lots of tweaks to the lighting and colour grading, including coming up with a neat compositor node group to correct exposure locally so areas of the image that were too dark get brightened.

Did you use cloth simulation for the scene?

No, the coats are just low poly models plus subdivision, then tweaked until they look right. Cloth sim would probably look better but would take longer.

fall leaves and a little boo.

pure entry, with some help from tissue tools on the trees.
