We recently had fun over at Blender Guru and this was one of the results, utilizing one of Cycles' latest feature - World Volumetrics.I'm really happy with how this turned out and decided to share it with everyone.

Thanks so much to Andrew Price for the opportunity.

Tutorial coming soon on Blender Guru. Stay tuned. :)

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. Before looking at the image I figured it was a Reyn piece just by the title. However, once seeing the image I thought it was from another artist as it has a different look from much of his other work. I gotta say, I really love this image. It's very mesmerizing. Fantastic atmosphere! This is the type of scene that makes you wish you could be transported into the image :-)
