Desert Run


By stefanericsson.

Desert Run is one of those projects that started out as a small and simple idea just to try and simulate motion in a still image format. But one thing led to another and I ended up with an entire scene. Although it was fun working on at the same time as small story elements grew around it.

About the Author

Hi there, my name is Stefan. I have been learning blender on my free time for a few years now, simply because I'm fascinated with the idea of creativity in a digital format. I'm still trying to find my way in the 3D world, so my projects are usually quite varied in style.


  1. Duuuuuude!...Love the Pic....Really is a fun setup to look at. Though i am intrigued by your Datsun 620 that you have on Artstation. Your material an light setups are things i admire, for us mere mortals it is something that either pushes us on and inspires us, or it breaks ones confidence as it feels unreachable. I really thought it was a photo at first! I would love to learn your workflow and technique behind that Artwork.
    Again Bravo on your work.

    • Wow! Thank you. I'm glad you liked it... To save time I usually try to push what procedural textures can do, and then supplement with handmade textures if necessary. The light setups is what I struggle with the most; I find it difficult to get it right. But I try to keep it simple and make sure that every light source adds something to the scene and does what it is supposed to do. Sorry if that sounds a bit cryptic :), I'm still learning a lot when it comes to light.
      Thank you again!
