“There are two main goals for these contests: Fun and Glory.
Fun: You get only 4 days to create a cool image, based on the theme for the week.
Glory: After 2 days of voting, a winner is declared. The winner picks the theme for next week.”
This is clever, I like it I’ve been thinking a lot about different kinds of “energy storage”, and caloric is for sure a great one Yesterday the nerd in me had a moment during the sunset of “the ground stores energy from the sun during the day and releases it at night”, but I think I can do better than a pile of dirt for this challenge
You know, hot stones have been used to store energy in a lot of ancient cultures and in a lot of different ways I believe there were Native American tribes that used hot rocks in their steam lodges to create steam, to avoid the dangers of open flames. And quite a few cultures have used that as a cooking method.
I’m really having to beat my inner nerd back with a stick here, but it’s true, rocks are impressively good at storing energy.
I am garbage at making rocks, but maybe you should make a cool rock for this challenge!
I can imagine how much one would appreciate a hot stone if one had to live in nature without modern technology. But, as you rejected the pile of dirt, I also dismissed the idea of making a rock because I thought it might be too dull to look at or, at least, not easy to draw attention to
I already started my entry yesterday and made good progress. It is a plant-based way of energy storage…
I am looking forward to seeing what you will come up with
First time participating in one of these ! Had so much fun doing this.
All assets made by me in Blender, I added trees, the characters and the little details in Photoshop so I think the entry is open.
I didn’t want to just do a storage thing so I went for something way more conceptual, but I think it still respect the theme.
I think it’s a great way of approaching a challenge. Nice to see a fresh take, getting your idea out there quickly and so not getting bogged down in the process. Makes for good execution. A little PS should be fine IMO. It might be nice to show pre-PS though so people can get an idea of how much was done and what was done in Blender.
