Resistance is futile
Pure, cycles 1024 samples, open denoiser, rendertime ~2 min, used glare/ghosts for the laser effect, but that only gives 2 lines and is not positionable so i render it separate and combined in gimp.
Tried without denoise, but the skin denied that, the render was clear except the skin, so i used denoiser.

Title : Network at light speed


Pure

This is actually the first time for me to participate to a week-end challenge, (usually I go for the CG boost Challenge), but since I’ve finish it and there’s still 2 weeks till the next, and wasn’t knowing what to do, I’ve decided to try myself in there :laughing:

The whole process took about 2 hours, pure, (just a little bit of post-processing), rendered in Eevee.

Eevee, 64 samples, animation nodes

First time using animation nodes. Super fun and powerful. Took about 5 minutes to make. Particle system with connecting splines using the animation nodes.

Title: “To disconnect”

Non-Competing

First time submitting something. Guess it is open as used a couple of materials from the BlenderKit, but otherwise, it would be Pure as all models were made by me.

Hey nice render.

Are those Cycles X samples?

nope, I don’t have one of those yet :wink: just regular cpu core samples

Here’s what I have so far.

My idea is an eerie scene with many robed figures networked into an ominous machine at the center.

Here are some thumbnail ideation sketches and a few test blockout renders I did to try and get a good composition:

I’m not sure yet if I’ll do the final in Eevee or Cycles (If I even get that far)

Edit:

I’m not super happy with it, but meh.

That’s an interesting idea for network. That looks like the mood is coming together. What if you could do more of a top view?

I liked that parclite gave references to his render methodology last week (beautiful render last week btw). I will do the same.

The trick is that crackle isn’t in the 2.93 voronoi node now…but…here’s how to replicate it:

Anyway, just having fun. Hope you all are as well.
