Hm, what should this mean? Something like a wolf, who costumed himself as an wolf, you see it is an costume and dont think it is an wolf, cause he costumed like one, an than he breach into a bulk of little tasty sheep’s???

Additional hint from @zeroskilz: “Trying to look like something else, but it is obviously not working.”

(But as always, the theme is open for interpretation.)

They do this well with old cartoons. Like All Dogs go to Heaven.

The Urban Chameleon is a wild animal adapted to urban life. It can change color and shape to blend with its surroundings.

I did this a decade ago with trueSpace. My first CG item put into a photo. Non competing of course.


wait, is that supposed to be him?

Pure evee


Here, I fixed your verbage, put the . where it belongs ;p

“The Urban Chameleon is a wild animal adapted to urban life. It can change color and shape to .blend with its surroundings.”

First thing I thought to do.

DJ Monkey!

I was trying to think of a real-world “conspicuous disguise”, like Marshmallow, Deadmaus, or Daft Punk, artists who hide their identity behind a mask. But obviously I had to use Suzanne! :slight_smile:

Open - characters are from Mixamo. Most of the work was on composition, lighting, camera movement, and the abstract shader for the screen.

Probably won’t have time to add sound to this, but might upload an improved version tomorrow.


Hello fellow human


Ah man, that takes me back. I was always amazed at the quality of trueSpace renders, the holdout of trueSpace artists still using it and posting on the forums was incredible right until they officially discontinued it. Thanks for posting!

Title: Maskerade

Calling this one Open because the eyes and teeth were appended from previous projects.
Going for a Venitian Maskerade look.

Open entry 1000 samples. The models were taken from a previous entries.


One ticket for freddy, please
Pure, cycles 1024 sampled, open denoiser, rendertime ~10min., all made in blender, the texture are painted in gimp, also the meshup for the poster, i used the movie posters from blender studio and a freddy movie poster. Also a freddy texture for the card board in the background.

I tried to add a nose and reading glasses, to give a looking over the edge of the glasses, but the nose dont work.



Seeing as how the eyes are barely visible and the teeth aren’t at all, I would say that makes your image pure. But that’s just my opinion.


Chickens First


Pure. cycles.
My main aim was to sit down and actually learn how to sculpt. So this is pretty much my first attempt at sculpting… Kinda turned out looking like manger scene figurines. I ran out of time to make a scene or finish the actual guys.

This is Thomson and Thompson, Police detectives. They are from the Tintin comics. They would often don terrible disguises that made them look more conspicuous than otherwise.


Thanks for the comment but I like to be clear. The teeth could have been visible as I had not decided on a pose or expression when creating the head and shoulers.
