I don’t know what this means.


Me neither.


I think it is like a black hole or something empty or vaccum.

Its not meant to mean anything, what do you think of when you read this Sentence? What definition will you give it? A creative interpretation could lead to a very intriguing artwork

Thats kinda of “wake the void” :smiley:

Should we?

It could be interpreted as: turn the dark off (switch the light on)
The void could be a state not a thing if this makes sense.

I get a scene in my mind a litte nervous girl sneak around a destroyed tank in a previous war to check if the field of flowers is save where nature is starting to hide the scars of destruction.

Makes me think of this song:

Early WIP (Non-Competing)
This is what I’m thinking. What does it need?


Hmm, what I would do is add a wall with a door that is opened, and the bed is on the other side just floating and floating… in the galaxy. :slightly_smiling_face:


Wake the void…
This image came to me when I closed my eyes (editd as I have added more objects)

Open as galaxies images are from NASA website.
Rendered in eevee, scattered with bagapie addon.


Hello I wanted to participate in the challenge for the first time.

I’m making the Hollow Knight Shade, which is the void within the main protagonist. This is a very early WIP, I’m experimenting with the lighting and some effects in the compositor.


I really like it. Its cool. :+1: :cowboy_hat_face: :metal:

Black Sun

Pure entry, created in Blende 3.1 Cycles with denoising doing allot of work. I use isCameraRay to create the different looks of the landscape. Ideally I would have made the grass disappear by using a transparent shader. I opted for giving the grass a different color because overlapping particles left behind artifacts. A bit disappointing.


First Sight

Non-competing (Open)

Cycles, 256 samples, EEVEE, 64 samples, Cesar Salcedo Eye Add-on ($), lightning tut by BadNormals, composited with Resolve Studio

First thing that popped into my head was the image of waking up and seeing a creature from the void and then realizing you were also in the void.

Avoid the Void

Pure, Cycles, 12 samples


Enter the Void

Pure cycles @ 300 samples. I didn’t like the all the greens too much so I decided to mellow out the color.

Here is a WIP GIF of the final product. Rendering out the High res final version over night.


Very cool, gives me FFVII northern cave vibes :slight_smile:

A Star is Born

Pure, Eevee
