Door In the Clouds (Alice in Wonderland series) - Behind the scenes


I love this image by Tihomir Lazarov where uses a combination of Blender and Photoshop to create this dream-like scene. He recorded the entire creation so you can get a sense of how this was done.

About Tihomir:

I'm a commercial photographer and filmmaker based in Sofia, Bulgaria. Although I tend to shoot everything in camera, whether it's stills or video, somtimes adding VFX helps to tell the story a little better.

My goal is to use whatever means I have to produce photo realistic imagery.

Here I'm mostly publishing my illustrations and matte paintings. You can see my photography and video portfolio at

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. It's a great final image, I would prefer to see the time lapse running a lot slower though. I did slow it down and it is a lot easier to follow!

    • Thank you. Unfortunately I have only that timelapse left. Feel free to ask me of anything on the project. Keep in mind I've been learning Blender on the go. I'm not a great 3D artist (at the moment of this writing).
