Blender LIVE Hour of Power Challenge!
Hello Blendermaniacs! We just had a VERY successful Hour of Power Challenge! So here’s to more!
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BUY OR PURCHASE OR SIGNUP FOR ZOOM
Go ahead and comment if you want to be a part of it! The ones who just participated can comment as well however if there are people who didn’t do it last week, they will take the spot of the people who did do it last week. But go ahead and anyone comment! Even if you did it already as people may drop out etc.
What is it? 10 participants will be Blending for an hour to create the best piece of work within that hour…all on LIVE screen sharing!
How does it work? 10 participants will sign up during the week to take part in this. Then on a designated day (for now we will do saturday 6/20/20 at 12 PST) the 10 participants will join the meeting (we will be using Zoom) and there all 8 participants will share their screen (you can also share your video and audio so you can talk but it’s not required. You COULD JUST share the screen and that’s fine so no one sees or hears you) I will then give the theme RIGHT there on the spot. You will then have 10 minutes to think of what you want to make, gather reference images etc. AFTER the 10 minutes, the challenge will start and you have 1 hour to create a render based on the given theme! Once the hour is up, I will tell everyone to hit the render image button and everyone will render out their image. We will then vote for the best render and winner will get points, Certificate and Badge. This is for ANY level! It’s for fun, non judgemental environment! So even if you are bran new, enter! ?
Can I still watch even if I don’t participate? Absolutely! If you don’t want to be one of the 10 participating in this, you can join the livestream and just watch these awesome Blendermaniacs do Blender and chat! I encourage anyone and everyone to join even if you are not participating! This will create an awesome group dynamic for an hour of us all getting together and having fun in Blender! Bring some popcorn and watch others do some awesome Blender, maybe you’ll learn a thing or two!
The first 10 people to comment below “I want do participate” or something of the like will be picked for this coming Blender Hour of Power Challenge.
**THIS IS FOR FUN! DON’T BE SCARED IF YOU THINK YOU ARE A BEGINNER OR NOT THAT GOOD. THE WHOLE POINT OF THIS IS TO HAVE FUN AND PRACTICE IN AN INTERACTIVE WAY. SIGNUP EVEN IF YOU ARE BRAND NEW! ? **
Oh no. Nim beat me to it.
Ill join in too
Put me down for a weak maybe. I’m helping my dad with a job tomorrow but hopefully i’ll be back in time to join in. No clue how long the job will take though, hence the non committal response lol.
It really looks like venom i love it!
How did you do the eye shape?
Here’s the polished version with more samples render and some post pro, second image is the submitted one. Had to sacrifice quality over quantity (a.k.a speed) to catch up with the time limit : 48 samples, progressive refine, no denoising (hence the blury result, still need around 3-4 min render). The polished one using 128 samples with denoising need around 15 min. Used box modeling and procedural textures.
Seeing the other entries, I think the others look more monstrous and menacing than this one, lol…
I just sculpted in the base shape then used the crease and grab brush to correct it
Dang, that theme was tailored for me… but the call of the local bars and my thirst for beer was strong
Good job everyone! Waiting for the recording to watch you guys!
