Non-competing Entries

My votes went to footsteps, birds, and the brick through the window, because why not. I love the cleverness that went into this week’s entries. The little bird eyeballs tell everything.


Congratulations to everyone who finished the challenge and made art this week.
I really like the mice! :heart_eyes:
LOL I just now got “Sus Structure”
“Ready Mr. Watson” makes me want to read Sherlock Holmes (which I don’t think I ever have)

Some of the fun ones involve a “Conspicuous Disguise” :mag: :face_with_monocle: which was the theme not so long ago:

I was happy to get mine done although I don’t really agree with the premise of mine. The Suspect on Berber is just based on a classic cliche. It was nice to practice modeling and arranging a scene. There are a couple things still to do that I might finish.


I like the coherent low-poly cartoonish style of your picture. It’s fun. IMO, this makes your picture stand out :sunglasses:

And… the winner of Weekend Challenge 984 with votes from 40.9% of the voters is… 3dnotguru!
Here’s to all the great participators…



Congrats 3dnotguru!
It’s tough for the brain to process and accept that the footprints suddenly diverge :footprints:


I of course did not participate, but I really wondered what the participants would come up with for this one. The winner really reminds me of this iconic Charles Addams cartoon . . .


Congrats 3D :slight_smile: and May the 4rth be with you when choosing our next topic :wink:

I had no much time to made entry so i decided it need to be simple but mind blowing. Even had no time to check if someone thought about this idea before.


Congrats - a “simple” and very funny picture idea :slight_smile:

And many thanks to the many voters for my contribution despite “open” :slight_smile:


Look what we have in store this time:


Really liked the image by valoisa_tylluan. Did people miss the reflections?



I didn’t see that. Nice idea.

Not at first, i wondered about where the problem for the king is and why 3 peasants survived :smiley:

These are to difficult to use.
You should think about a mainspring or winding spring in a case, so they can easily changed in your wind-up car. Also they give an rotation energy. :smiley:

Let’s just call it a prototype. And the job only asked for “energy storage”. Getting the energy back wasn’t part of the deal. :wink:

I saw that. I was wondering how that was done… Can you do a render where something is invisible to the render engine but the reflection is not? Or is it done with a glass chessboard and no reflections?

Or else, walking into a cactus results in a very wide stance immediately after…


A question for valoisa_tylluan, I think. :wink:

I think you got this one @3dnotguru for such a fresh and original idea.

I give my honorary 3rd vote to @Manuel_Lopez because I enjoy it quite a bit now that I get it.
