Summer Color!

Hi, this is my latest model, I hope you like it.
The model is based on one of the illustrations made by Zoe Persico for the children book “Summer Color!” written by Diana Murray

The hardest part of this part of this project was the trees, I wanted to achieve an handpainted style with a good volume, so I created a transparent texture with all the brush strokes that I needed.
Then I started to copy-paste tons of single planes while moving the uv on the brush strokes that I wanted to use.

Made with Blender and Affinity Photo

Very nice - I was impressed to see how 3D everything was - with such a convincing 3D style, I thought it was mostly going to be planes with images on!

Very impressed with how you managed to get this painterly children’s book style in 3D.

My only complaint is I would have liked to see you do some trickery so that the reflections in the puddles didn’t just move with the puddles as textures.

This is beautiful and it has such a sense of motion that i’m expecting to see everything start moving any second.

Thank you :blush:

Thank you :blush: i don’t know if it possible to use reflective materials with a shadeless setup on Sketchfab, now I want to make some test

Can you map the texture to the object normal or something?

I love this scene on so many levels :heart:

Awesome!
Did you try to use the particle system for the trees? I guess doing it one by one gave you more control…?

Absolutely awesome work! I love 3D art that manages to capture the essence and charm of 2D! :slightly_smiling_face:

I placed most of the planes one by one because I wanted to reach a realistic handpainted style, a particle system would have been too much random, at least with my knowledge of particles

Lovely style, really like the painted look. I always admire art that does not immediately tell You how it was done.

So good! wish sketchfab constrained the camera a bit so we dont get outside of it when we mode it, it is so pretty!

Great mood and use of color.

Is the 360 ° VR render basically a panoramic render in Blender?
