Inspired by some postcards I picked up by a Japanese artist, I made these. (The originals were actually sculptures in fibre glass).
This is all “retro Blender” features, no GI/AO or whatnot. And I made their heads in Wings (too easy!). The ground is 5 layers of Blender’s cloud textures. There’s 3 “suns” and one OnlyShadow Spot way up in the ceiling with lots of softness.
DOF with rendering ZBuffer out and using Photoshop’s snazzy new Lens Blur. Scaled to half to remove the aliasing this causes.
My boss thought I was using Brazil, which I took as a compliment.
