Firsties. I’m curious if anyone can guess the source material.

The Iron Giant! Maybe? Looks awesome!

That’s what my wife said. It predates That by 15 years though.

The Nine from LOTR book? only they are with 5, maybe rest is off canvas… :slight_smile:

That’s a good guess, but no.

I’ll give a hint. They are referred to as the “giant warriors” in the film.

If you google it don’t spoil it though.

“I will grant you any one wish within my power.”

After looking all the series of Piano of the forest I managed to make one of it scenes. I don’t know if this is valid for the challenge but I will share it just in case you like it.

Strelitzia fanart (Darling in the FranXX), EEVEE utilizing Shader to RGB node + Freestyle.

First image is for the entry, second one without lineart, last one is workbench render (to show it’s 3D, lol).

This is a scene from the 1984 Japanese film “Nausica of the valley of the wind”. It’s original US edited release was titled “Warriors of the wind”.

Here is the original scene.

Definitely valid! Love the style… 3D without looking 3D if you know what I mean… Also reminds me of some interval style animations of Vampire Hunter D… great!

Love the high contrast shading/render with Freestyle.

Thanks! Setting the values can be a pain though, and still doesn’t look so good, lol.

Since Google spied on me, this shows up on my YT feed :

That’s awesome! I’d watch that.
