Weekend Contest: In the Basement

Weekend Contest: In the Basement contests

Image: Staircase by Benjamin Vurlod.

Thomas Nordstrøm was the runner up in the previous weekend contest, themed 'Fantasy places'. He got to pick this week's contest and he chose 'In the Basement'.

Thomas writes:

I choose "In the Basement" as topic for the upcoming contest. It's a bit open like the previous topic from Andre ("Fantasy"), but it also encourages to create an indoor scene or display and as such makes it easier to come up with a good result in the short time span we have for this.

Post your work below (attach an image), and vote for your winner. The winner will get a post on monday. Have fun!

    I'm really liking these BlenderNation weekend challenges. I just wish life would leave me alone long enough to enter one!

    • Tobias Milliken

      Hey I deleted a few comments and it said comments deleted but they are still here can you fix this.

    • Kirill Trideshny

      man, I guess the theme is about "vault" basements... But I see a kitchen on your render. Good start BTW but I think (not sure) it's another theme.

  • Fabrice ALFANO

    Hi this is my humble entry, all made in blender, modeling rendering and compositing..

  • Alex Kemmler

    Since I am doing a juice fast with no drinking, smoking, or solid food... maybe I'll have time to do this one :D ... on the other hand coffee is also prohibited, so maybe I won't.

  • Eric Varela

    Didn't have a lot of time this weekend, but wanted to throw something together regardless. Really trying to just make more work this year, so here it is.

    • Guillaume Gris

      I do really like your entry Eric. It's simple yet very well made and there is definitely a mood you can feel just by seeing the picture. The wide angle lens you used combined with the low angle shot helps to convey a genuine feeling of paranormal.

      Great job !

      • Eric Varela

        Thanks! I was trying for super simple and then was going to try to play around with light in cycles, but I think as you found out too, its super hard to get good low light looks in cycles :/

  • Guillaume Gris

    Here is my entry : "Exposed basement".

    Took me the last 8 hours non-stop, time to eat now :)

    • http://www.polosson.com/ Paul Maillardet

      I really like this one. Very well done!

      • Guillaume Gris

        Thanks, I think it lacks light rays but it's a pain to do them nicely in cycles.

        • curious.yellow

          Congratulations Guillaume, well done on the win.

  • Guest

    I wanted to retry to do something with the good old Blender Internal renderer... So, here's my entry:

    • http://www.polosson.com/ Paul Maillardet

      Ooops, it seems I don't control this Disqus thing yet... Sorry about the triple upload, but there is no progress bar nor something to tell upload is in progress. And, impossible to delete stuff in there!
      BTW, my entry is (well) visible!

    • Eric Varela

      Very nice. This is much closer to the look I was trying to achieve, good job :)

      • http://www.polosson.com/ Paul Maillardet

        Thanks, Eric :)

  • Andre Dues

    My Entry. A Basement :)

  • curious.yellow

    Hi all, this is my first post at blender natoin, I like the weekend challenges and thought I'd join in. I'm a Blender beginner, I've separately been practising with displacement maps and the Ivygen addon and put this together. I started with Cycles but switched to Luxrender as I wanted to add some volumetric light.

    • Eric Varela

      Love the lighting!

      • curious.yellow

        Thanks Eric

  • Günter Martins

    Haha, nice Gran Torino poster on the wall!

  • Sascha Heitmann

    My first try to participate...
    I tried to learn a bit about lighting. - This is my result:

  • Guest

    Here is my picture, it was inspired by Auerbachs Keller at the time of 1900 - I saw a picture like this on my google image search.
    Sadly there`s not enough time to render in a bigger resolution, so that is what I made, hope you like it?!

  • Vincent Holzborn

    ..ok here it is ;-)

    • http://www.polosson.com/ Paul Maillardet

      Hey, really nice work ! Just one thing disturbs me: I can't figure out from where the lights comes from. BTW, nice composition, and very well modeled & textured!!

      • Vincent Holzborn

        thanks, you`re right maybe the lights should have been brighter and a slight glow would help to see where it comes from. I will make another render in a bigger resolution and some other fixes - but not today...

    • Andre Dues

      I think you cant delete it. But the Admin could i think :)
      Anyways your picture is awesome. Sadly you will not get much up votes in that short time.

      • Vincent Holzborn

        Thanks! It`s just to have it made and to practise and to get some critics, not for getting enough votes:-)

    • Richard Nespithal

      I really really like this one. Wonderful rendering!

      • Vincent Holzborn

        Thanks. I´m currently do the Post production again, I rendered the Image in a bigger res. When it`s finished I will post it on my site: http://www.yusis.net

        Thanks to everyone, it made a lot of fun - and the small time schedule is very challenging!

  • Richard Nespithal

    Used Gimp and Inkscape for some textures. Blender 2.69 (Cycles) on Gentoo - took around 2 hours to render in HD (i7, 8G RAM).

  • http://3dnett.no/ Thomas Nordstrøm

    Here's mine at last. Even when I get to choose the topic I'm late. Got to blame the kid's. A lot of amazing entries here! Got to love this competition! :)

  • Jose Falko

    This is my entry, with render Cycles

    • mike kelly

  • Martin Norris

    Here is my entry.
    First time I have entered!

    I hope the thumbnail is the complete upload or I am going to have to reply to this as the entry.

    • Andréa

      Boa Sorte!

    • Babi

      Good job!

  • 4paul

    My entry Ton's Lair

  • Brennan McFarland

    Well, this is my first entry as a Blender semi-beginner. I'll call it "The Tenant" (it's a bit sparse I know, but of course I procrastinated). It is all in Blender, except it was too big so I re sized it with gimp. There's a story behind it, too. Every now and then my grandparents and aunt come in from out of town, and since I have several younger, noisier siblings, they choose to sleep in the basement. That inspired me to create this image.

    • mike kelly

      holy shit, you put your grandparents in the basement with dog bowls and a single mattress,yikes ,sure hope that's a joke.
