WIP, saw this tutorial from blender bob: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nKldpqLhTkY and went with a scene with such lightning. I heavy underestimated the work, i guess i stick with clay figures for the background :smiley:

Neat theme! I plan to do a scene with an old spaceship wreck floating in an asteroid field. I feel like there are some good opportunities there to push the idea of isolation using an ancient, cold, lifeless and lonely shipwreck out in the middle of nowhere. I’ll do some thumbnail sketches and throw them up here.

Really excited to see what everyone else comes up with.

Isolation
Open. It is almost entirely assets from Daz.

Original Title: Eyes In A Crowd

Is this too open? Maybe it should be non competing. It is almost entirely assets from Daz.

The figures are Daz Studio Genesis 3 characters. So are the clothes and textures. Paint Shop Pro for Splododyne logo.

Posed in Daz. Exported as .obj with material library. Imported into Blender, duplicated, eyes modified, instanced, and positioned. The normals were not right on the imported objects. I used edit mode->mesh->normals->set from faces to fix them. Flipping and recalculating did not fix it.

Lighting is hdri plus one area light on the people plus one area light on the background plane.

Render: B2.92, cycles, 1m 43s, 806 samples, adaptive sampling, no denoise, 2x gtx1070ti

I like art that can be interpreted by the viewer in many ways. When I look at this I find interpretations and ideas other than the one I originally intended so I’m happy with it.

Pure. after a lot of bad smoke simulations i took a smoke picture and used alpha.
I was powerless against the fireflies 2400 stamps with denoising data … was like mud, so it is without.

Here’s my entry.
“Relay Echo Five Whiskey”

Pure, rendered in Eevee.

I wanted to do more with the idea, but it was still fun to see what I could finish with my time. I had fun messing with different composition ideas.

Prisoner

Open Entry because the brick wall is a Blenderkit texture with displacement and makes up most of the Image. But everything else is modeled by me.
