I love Blender...
And I love Eurovision. Yep, I do. The splendour, the national diversity, the camaraderie, the music, the staging, the lights. ALL OF IT, I TELL YOU!!! I LOVE IT!! I don't love the fact that we have had "Null Points" recently, but this year the UK had a great run. Oh and of course "Well done Ukraine!"
But there was one thing that did get my back up a bit. It was a 3D Drone that was in the links that was flying all of the vistas of Italy. Leo the Drone, it was called. But for some reason it did not cast a reflection over some of the water shots and often cast no shadow. If you can comp in a drone, you can fake a shadow. I am assuming it was a time issue, which happens more time than you would think.
Then I got to thinking, I bet I could build that in 20 minutes, that drone. I bet I could. I even said it out loud and my eldest daughter said to me, "That would make a great video on your channel, Dad!"
So here it is! Me attempting to recreate in Blender Leo the Drone from Eurovision2022.
No spoilers, but it was a great thing to do and I think I'll probably do more.
What do you think, please leave a comment. Even better maybe suggest something I can do a time build of!
Take care guys!
