ManticoreSigma's Sketchbook

I’m a beginner and do Blender for fun. But I still wanna track my progress and have a central place to show off, so here I am :wink: Enjoy. Or don’t. I’m a post, not an authorative figure.

Messing around with materials:

Designing a bicycle (in progress):

The inevitable first donut render:

So I’m making a short animation out of it!

Another nonsense project for the fun of it.
And yes, this is my actual cat :smiley:

Now with better lighting and additional promo:

This was the final animation (rendered by
And just for the heck of it, I redid this in as shitty as possible:
