Grandpa's Greenhouse

This is my entry for the 3rd CG Boost challenge on the topic 'Fantastic Greenhouse’¨ that was announced this week. I also had the honor to get the 1st place!

It was two weeks of work + some time for sketching and looking for ideas, the whole scene was created in Blender and rendered with Cycles at 2000 samples. I had the opportunity to play around with Blender’s compositing tools so I did not need to run my illustration through Photoshop. The idea behind the concept was to have a cozy and warm place with a little twist in it.

After this I got more interested in rigging and working with blend shapes, as I believe it will bring more life to my characters, pushing expressions and poses further.


Nice render and details, i love it! :smiley:


Thanks! I’m glad you like it :smiley:
