2019 Holiday Challenge - Santa's Star Base - Mikomdude

Post by MikomDude » 11 Dec 2019, 18:27

Made a star...t on my entry for this challenge. Santa's Star Base.

Test render in Blender:

I'm thinking of adding some silly vehicles around the scene as well, maybe even one featuring Santa himself. :bananaclaus:

Another test render in Blender Cycles:

I'm thinking, less dark and more Santa for the final render :bananaclaus:

It's a pretty quick & dirty job of just speed modeling some stuff in tS, exporting and rendering it Blender and then painting on extra detail in post, haha.

Also I had a bit of extra time yesterday due to a tooth-ache which made it hard for me to concentrate on the job I was actually supposed to be doing which was working on my game... :?

thats what iam talking about... you have a tooth ache, so you speedmodel something that has pretty good details :D
I guess i dont model often enough. I used to model like I write, but the training is gone. Now it takes me more time, more thinking on how to approach the modeling etc. Not what it used to be.
