Kinetic Movement

Non-competing

Eevee, 128 samples, filmic, driver driven animations - Pure

The first thing that came to mind was the fine balance that is needed for kinetic sculptures to move cleanly and efficiently. Got me back into using drivers.

The model is supposed to be chain driven counter spin movement with coil spring power source.

All non-competing. what happens if no one enter a challenge? I’m busy so no entry for me this time.

OLG, that’s hypnotizing. rr0masd1n1, amazing realism, like a photo. The rock positions look like the rocks are balanced except the left (picture left) hand.

Thanks @Splododyne! My idea was to play around with photo realism and an imposible equilibrium in this kind of humanoid form.

No idea what happens with the challenge if no one submit anything.

I am not submitting anything because I’ve proposed the theme.

Cheers.

Maybe the topic is too “abstract”?

The first thing that came to mind were stacked stones :slight_smile: and then maybe a slack liner or something like that. But beyond that, I didn’t have a good idea.

Money or Life
Open, cycles 512 samples, optix denoised, rendertime ~3min., all made in blender, the textures painted in gimp, used wallstreet journal textures and the texture for the clothes, $ and :heart: are from dejavu font. Used glare with cryptomatte for just let some sparkling on the right side. I mean the right side, not the wrong side :smiley: .
Would like to add a anime Heroine standing on the right wooden bar holding a big flag with “To gether” on it, and one or to grapples are thrown up to the right pan showing support is coming to give more weight.
