Spacekdet: That nut's a nut. He's not even strapped in. No parachute. I haven't seen para-glider pilots with their hands off of the controls. Looks like fun!

Blender Artists chellenge theme "tunnel". Discombobulate add on for tunnel greebles. Magnetic force applied to particles. Particles rendered as paths. Create curves from paths.

Nice start, get some DOF on the path/curves, maybe a graduated colour, something to send it into the distance.
At the moment it is sitting on the surface not going into the tunnel.
Maybe the path could have a coloured glow that gets reflected down the tunnel.

Good advice Saul. That picture was a quickie for anti boredom so I probably won't do another finished one. I did try dof, different camera angle, etc. Gave a good sense of distance. It has a little volumetric scattering but dof did better. Both was great but touchy to adjust. Blender 3.4.

A future city in an ocean. The exact form is not predictable since the main structure is grown by nanotechnology. The nanites harvest materials from the seafloor, water, and some delivered from other places to build it. Then they repair damage and maintain it.

Sea City

Blender 3.4. Cycles render. The spirals begin as particles effected by a vortex force field. Set the particle render type to Path. Bake the particles. The paths are only calculated and shown when baked. Convert particles to mesh. Convert mesh to curve. Give curve thickness. Then convert back to mesh. Vertex groups Bottom and Lights are used. Lights is a random selection of faces/polygons mostly along the sides. They get a light emitting material. Top is used to place 3001 tree particle instances. The trees are from the Sapling generator that is part of Blender. I used the Ocean modifier for the water.

@Bitkar(who should do some CG): The cooler a thing looks the less practical it is.

@Steinie (who should do some CG): I think I'll retire in Svalbard. No plants. (Well, surprisingly, I heard there is, or was, grass there at an old mining town.) Wait, it's cold there. Never mind.
