“From a Grave of Ashes”


(Pure, Non-Competing. )
For this challenge, I chose the legendary bird known as the phoenix, as it has a unique life cycle. I didn’t have a ton of time to work on it, but I hope you like the result! Rendered in eevee, with a heavy use of geometry nodes.

Eat and get eaten
Pure, cycles 512 samples, optix, rendertime ~1min., all made in blender except the texture is downoaded and prepared in gimp, the fishes are sculpted. Used simple alpha planes for the background. I brighten it up i gimp a bit. Thought about a shark but it feels to much.

I’m surprised I’m the only person who sees a way to take this title literally and would make someone riding a stationary bike which is wired up to a pacemaker or dialysis machine of some kind! Don’t have time to enter though, so if anyone wants that, feel free! Also, the immortal jellyfish would be a fun one!

I was originally going to make this a cyclic animation with the grass growing back, but it became kinda a tall order for a weekend.
