Image series: H6


Another awesome set of bots by Jerry Perkins, demonstrating his Hard Ops add-on.

On the quest to build the next Veldox I have been doing Htests. So now I present H6. Modelled with Hard Ops in Blender.

Rendered in Octane and Cycles!

Bart Veldhuizen

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. I would die to find out what kind of shader's were used on this project holy crap this looks gorgeous. The one with the cannon stock photo background faded in the background with a focus on the head. OMG.

    • That particular shot is just the byproduct of Octane. I'm pretty sure I used a Car Paint black shader from the LiveDB. The reflectance however is another story. I am pretty obsessed with the content of reflections so off camera is an reflector light that gives it a nice reflection to show the surface.

      I still use Cycles too I just like to jump back and forth. They both have their own styles that show through. But people seem to respond more to the Octane content.
