The Bad Beginning

My first post here!

This was my first big project in Blender and it took quite a while.
It’s based on an amazing artwork by Brett Helquist, who illustrated A Series of Unfortunate Events, a series of books I absolutely loved as a kid.
Everything was done in Blender, except for the texturing, for which I used Substance Painter. It was rendered in Cycles and I did the final touches in After Effects.

Hope you enjoy!


This is a pretty good beginning, actually. I’d fix the camera angle a bit, but it’s a very well recreated scene. :clap:


Yeah, I tried to stay as close as possible to the original artwork but the perspective wasn’t exact so I had to take a few liberties. Thanks for the feedback!
