Weekend Contest: Fantasy Places



Image: still from 'The Secret of Kells'.

Andre Dues won last week’s weekend contest with 'Store'. I asked him to pick the theme for this weekend and his choice was: ‘Fantasy Places’. Read on for his motivation behind this choice.

Andre said:

I choose a very open Topic, so that nearly every piece of Art can fit in it. I dont feel like im the Winner of this contest cause the Oceanscene was much better, even without a City. Thomas Nordströms Pic was also very nice.

So i hope we get a lot a Participants with that Topic.

"Fantasy Places" its open and it should be enough inspiration to see some nice Art :)

Thank you!

Good thinking Andre! This should get some good creativity going this weekend.

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

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. Guillaume Gris on

    I did this one about a year ago for my Role-play club. I just started using Cycles back then so textures are not that great but I think it looks quite good anyway.

  2. thanks Andre for the nice words, yours was great too, although I didnt have an intention to win back then cuz I was off topic, I just wanted to share the result.
    hope to see some great renders ! ^_^

    • Thank you too. So now its time to grab your computer and make a Ontopic Scene :) I hope to see something from you! Thomas? Wheres yours? ;) I was able to cheat in this Contest because i knew the Topic b4 haha

  3. So I actually just finished this piece and then saw the topic. While the actual image doesn't have that much fantastical in it, it's part of a series I've been working on in a fantasy environment so I thought I'd submit.

  4. I "whipped up' this set for my film project 'Cold Dark Mirror' over the last couple days while I've been off for the holidays...

    • Thats not bad at all. You should make the Foreground or Background in
      Focus. At least one End in Focus would make that Picture more pleasant
      for the Eyes. Are you still working on this?
