This morning I had a dream where I was riding a rollercoaster. I was at an amusement park with my parents and my brother. After the ride, I figured we would settle down and watch a show together. In the dream I had a notion that my brother and I were sharing it. I told him we should cherish these moments.
On the rope
Pure, cycles, 2048 samples, render time ~2min., no denoiser, all made in blender, used the tutorial in the summary for the artist, which is insane how he pull out details from a low poly mesh in the start.
A few months now. About 5-6. In the fall, a friend asked me if I could help him. He is currently writing his doctoral thesis and had made illustrations with software for 3D molecular representation. He wanted to pimp this with the Atomic Blender Plugin in Blender and he couldn’t cope with it. I was able to help and then somehow got stuck with Blender The first few weeks I then - like everyone else I think - made tutorials after tutorial (donut & co.) and read manuals, FAQs, etc. But: Even then you just scratch the surface of Blender’s possibilities. And with many questions I often ended up here at Blenderartists after a Google search and that’s how I found the weekend challenge a few weeks ago.
I have been using Blender for about 2 to 3 months. I started with the donut, and I got through the whole series and that is how I got stuck with Blender. But every now and then I have to read the manuals two watch tutorials and etc.
Open. Tried to recreate one of my favourite pieces by the german cartoonist Ralph Ruthe ( https://ruthe.de/cartoon/2839/rating/asc/ ). Rendered in Cycles X with 4096 samples, all new geometry. The background clouds are from pexels, compositing was done with photoshop.
