Weekend Contest: "Piping Hot: Fresh From The Bakery"



(Image: 'Breakfast' by Andrew Price)

Last weekend's contest 'Disco Fever' inspired Eric Varela to create 'All abooooooooooooooard! Next stop: Funkytown!'. He won the contest, and got to pick this weekend's theme: "Piping Hot: Fresh From The Bakery". Let your imagination run wild and surprise us :)

Eric writes:

I have really been enjoying the weekend contests. I like the colorfulness and playfulness that the past two topics have inspired. I hope I can continue that trend with my choice. For my topic I am going to go with Piping Hot: Fresh From The Bakery. I think we can whip up some delicious entries, and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Eric also added:

As I have every intention of entering the contest this week (time permitting), and since choosing the topic gives me an unfair time advantage for at the very least thinking about my entry I would like to request that should I win this round that the honor and title be passed along to the next runner up. I think it's much more important to have a variety of members of the community represented than to stroke my own ego.

You're right, Eric! From now on this will be a new rule - last week's winner can't win the next contest, but he can certainly earn an honorable mention :)

Post your work below (attach an image), and vote for your winner. The winner will get a post on monday, and will get to pick next weekend’s contest theme. 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 ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Guillaume Gris on

    Here is my entry. First time trying to make food in blender. I'm not completely satisfied of the result but I'm quite busy currently so I can't afford to spend more time on it.

  2. "Waiting for Someone"
    This low poly glitched up with the camera and the walls started to like disappear and stuff. but, nonetheless, I think it still came out good

  3. Here's my contribution to the weekend contest, titled "Too much pink" (believe it or not, I don't like that color, but it was nice for this render). They are all procedural materials, except, of course, the tiles on the wall. Even the fire on the candle is made on Blender. I hope you like it.

  4. Hi! Although this rendering is more technology test than art, I couldn't resist to put it here. I made it as technology test to learn 3D model and texture reconstruction from photographs using PhotoScan software, that I bought recently. I used Blender and 3D-Coat to repair the scans and it is rendered in Cycles. Materials are just quick setup, could be better. Include it to the contest or not as you wish, I enjoyed making this. ;) Nice week to everyone!

  5. Here is my submission. most people went for the standard baked goods, so i chose to do something a little more personal to my culture

      • Raindrops From Sky on

        "phulka roti" (flat bread, a staple food in Indian subcontinent). It is bloated with steam during the roasting.

        The rendering is so good, I can almost feel the steam escaping!
        Of course, it can be made with infinite variety of fillings, mostly veg. (Unlike the pita bread pockets, these fillings are placed inside the dough and then rolled out, and then roasted on the griddle.)
