Finding Delmon

Very little attention is given to the ancient Gods of Delmon (modern-day Bahrain). I decided to honor the most prominent of all Delmonian gods… unfortunately, we don’t even know his name.

Software used: The Mighty Blender
Compositing: Photoshop

That’s a unique god in that it doesn’t look like living thing.

…and, how did you make the sand? If you don’t mind me asking.

This god is symbolised in many different ways but it’s essentially a wonky bull’s head :slight_smile:

The sand is just a plane with a displacement map. A Voronoi texture is used for the main dune shapes, then a couple of wave textures for the ripples, finalised with some noise to wobble the whole thing a bit. the rest is just cosmetic. Check out this tutorial by Sam Bowman https://youtu.be/y02x-p_0wP0

Here’s a screenshot of the main part of the displacement.
