Bread and games
Pure, cycles 128 samples, rendertime ~ 1min, all made in blender, just used the blender logo, tried to make a more dynamic pose but looks it needs a remesh and rig for that, thought it could be done with the sculpt pose brush but that didnt work as expected. If anyone have constructive criticism at the sculpt i appreciate it.


@Helge s great render with the bokeh inspire me a dark scene with sparks.

I have seen one tutorial with this genius statement: " The uglier and weirder it looks at the beginning, the better results you will have at the end…" I am trying to remember this all the time when playing with Blender… because 2/3rds of the time… my work just looks horrible to me… Looks like good base mesh, now refine it.

One of the best compositions and most cinematic I’ve seen from you, fantastic work this week, Helge!

Not a criticism, just something that might help in the future. For the figures I use in these competitions these days I use a stick figure of verts with the skin modifier and subdivied modifer. The skin modifer comes with a feature to create an armature. So, I pose my stick figure as required, apply the modifiers and start sculpting.

Good hint. But it needs a remesh too?

Who knows :thinking:

PURE entry “fallen empire”

Blender says 12h of rendering to get good quality so I rendered it with only 80s. I hope ruins are still visible enough.

The Duelists

The Duelists (2015 Remaster) - YouTube :wink:

I was going to add more spectators and clouds, but something about this version spoke to me. Open entry, 1000 samples. Everything except for the forum was taken from previous entries.

Nice, i just missed a lizard. :slight_smile:

The Roman Pantheon.

Pure. The crows and crowd are assets from Ian Hubert. I modeled everything else in the scene for the competition (including the hotdog stand :smiley: ). Everything was done in Blender.
