Today's first pic is this ice-cool render by "Blenderkid" over on Reddit. The fur on this render is especially impressive, and Blenderkid shares how he used two hair systems, one with clumping one without, to achieve this look. This project took him 20 hours in total to accomplish. He also posted a project overview on youtube, found below:
Levi Magony's "Space Milk" animation is as minimalistic as it is mesmerizing. The thick-stroked minimalistic NPR design combined with ingenious use of emission and transparency, make it hard to look away from this animation. The blend file is available on his Patreon page He also made a full-length 7 hour-long stream of his process available on his twitch channel.
This incredibly photoreal render comes courtesy of Sharlybh on Blenderartists. The author's goal to achieve a fairytail-like setting is squarely achieved, with the lighting detail standing out. Sharlybh used the open-source powerhouse "LuxCoreRender" to render this scene, where he made use of it's incredibly useful light group feature. He released a light group tutorial in tandem with this piece, found below.
Character Artist Evan Gintsiak is known for his masterful semi-realistic renditions of cartoon characters. His latest one is a recreation of the "Princess Tiabeanie" character. This render manages to beautifully capture the character of his subject, and his stellar lighting and material work round-up this masterclass in character design. Check out his BlenderArtists post for a behind scenes look and more renders of this artwork.
Brazilian Archviz Professional Luan3dr is behind this gorgeous photorealistic interior render. His mastery of light in this scene is impressive, with the slightly overexposed exterior giving credibility to this render. The hidden-in-plain-sight Suzanne is the cherry on top! Check out his Behance post for more views of this scene.
