“Every exit is an entry somewhere else.” - Tom Stoppard

We recently had fun over at Blender Guru and this was one of the results, utilizing one of Cycles’ latest feature - World Volumetrics.

I’m really happy with how this turned out and decided to share it with the community.

Thanks so much to Andrew Price for the opportunity.

Thanks for viewing, everyone! :slight_smile:

Love it


Very great mood, and colors! :slight_smile:
Good Job

I love the tones you have brought into this, and the volumetrics look great, as does the scene itself. The only thing that seems a little off to me is the scaling of the moose or deer, it seems a little big possibly , relative to the size of the boat. Or maybe the boat should be a little larger.

But as always you have really done an exceptional job on this.

Beautiful ,as always.Exceellent work

I love this one! Top notch!

This has some really good lighting and atmosphere

Thanks! Really appreciate your comments. Yes, the deer is indeed large in comparison to the regular ones and wanted to give it this surreal human-like property and a twist of Miyazaki accent to it. :wink:
