Wizard is doing wizardy things.He keeps his tree happy!
An entry for the current CGboost challenge.
I used this scene to get better with procedural workflows.
The effects were all done with blender volumetrics and generated textures. Great fun!
I added renderings of the torch and the wizard effects without any environment to show how nice that looks like. Its super small in the final image though
There are even northern lights and a nicely modeled greenhouse frame in the image, which you would see, if the tree wasnt that glowy big thing it is
Done in three to four days (Blender 2.8).
Rendered with cycles (5h 2k samples, no denoising- i removed fireflies in post)
Postpro in Compositor/lightroom/gimp. Saturation/denoising/adding rerendered tiles/brightness adjustments: vigniette added.
