Here is my submission to the blenderguru fantasy competition. It presents in a cartoon style the story of a young butterfly hunter riding a flying Koi carp. Yeah I know, put like this, it sounds like i drank too much beer...

Everything was made in blender (modeling, rigging, texturing, shading etc...) except the final compositing of render passes that was done in PS.

Carried by my subject, I worked on 3 different versions. which one do you prefer ?

  1. To me Koi Rider 3 S looks great. The Koi could be a bit more prominent in this picture. The butterfly hunter looks fantastic in Koi Rider 3 S. And don´t worry: It doesn´t sound that you had too much beer. I´m working on a bavarian style scene at the moment. A bavarian beer mug and two gay candles (one from Cologne, the other one from Berlin) come to life when the pub closes. They talk about the people that were sitting at their table during the evening. We learn a lot about bavarian lifestyle. - Did I have too much beer? Maybe :)
