This competition was all about movies! 6 weeks ago I announced the topic of “Movie Moments”. With the challenge to “Create a scene or character from any movie”. A massive 139 artists have sent in their entries and now it’s time to review and announce the winner! Here are there entries:
Can’t find your image? If by chance I missed it, please send me an email: email@example.com
These entries came close to winning and deserve a mention. See if you can pick which movies they are from… some are easier than others
A very impressive render of everyone’s favourite superhero. The thing I like the most about this render is oddly enough, the background. Frequently character renders look stale and stationary, but the flying debris you’ve added instantly adds a level of excitement to this scene. The facial expression is a little unreadable, but it’s still an awesome render. Well done IvanCherganov!
An awesome reproduction of an awesome film! The environment, along with Mike Wazowski is perfect. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you copied them directly out of a frame from the movie. The only thing letting you down was Sulley’s face. There’s something about the eyes that just isn’t quite right. However it’s still an incredible reproduction of the scene, and deserves some serious recognition for all that work (especially the fur, wow!). Well done Nathan!
A nice twist on a cult movie! I like the clean and cartoony look. It’s easy to read and doesn’t make the view squint to figure out what’s going on. But having said that, the background is a little plain, and would benefit from a more complete scene. The girl is perhaps a little too raunchy for the general public (especially for those watching this at work!) but it’s still an awesome image that deserves a mention. Well done gorex87!
Truly a movie for the cinephiles I love the texturing and the detail in the bullet. Really well done rtw!
Brilliant capture of arguably the best shot in the whole trilogy! It’s lacking some detail in his face, and there is visible texture stretching, but it’s still an excellent image. I especially love the Depth of Field on the ring. It’s perfect! Well done Guss!
I’m embarrassed to say that I haven’t the slightest idea what movie this is from, but I know a good render when I see one. Truly fantastic work. I especially like the clothing. The fair and eyes could use a little work, but it’s still a very decent character render. Well done moxiecrimefight!
A brilliant rendition of an old classic! Everything looks sharp, colorful and well lit. Mickey could probably have a bit more life in his eyes, but other than that it’s awesome. For those who don’t know what “movie” this is from, do a little search on the history of animated cinema. This one goes waaaay back!
A well composed and beautifully lit scene! Now if only I knew what movie this is from! I wanna say Lord of Rings but I’m only guessing. Anyway, it’s a fantastic scene with some really great detail in the nature and the character. Well done Kaptainmaxmorga!
Two batman themes in the finalist category? I guess Christopher Nolan’s trilogy really did strike an inspiration cord in the hearts of artists. A brilliant render of a great action scene. The smoke, fire and street could use some work, but the main focus is the tumbler which looks great. Clearly a lot of reference images were used to get this to look just right. Well done yowas!
The lighting, colors and attention to detail in the hair and clothing is great. The only thing letting it down is the smooth, “clean” areas on the male’s chest and face. But it’s still a excellent piece of artwork that has obviously been slaved over for hours. Well done keeek!
This one was actually handed in past the deadline, so it doesn’t technically qualify, but it’s still an awesomely good render that deserves a mention anyway. Well done Ristridyn!
Other honourable mentions:
- Windows1080 – The Matrix
- JohnMervin – The Avengers
- Riftmaster – Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy
- anuraag - 2001: A Space Odyssey
There can only be one winner, and for this competition the winner is…
Congratulations Pratik! The character is beautifully modelled and the lighting helps to instantly draw the viewers attention. The surrounding scene is nicely detailed, whilst being subtle enough not to detract too much attention away from the character. Overall I loved that everything meshed together so well, to create a goofy, fun and attractive final render. Well done. Does the name Pratik Solanki ring a bell? Well that’s because he was actually the winner of the very first blender guru competition! This makes him the first artist here to win a competition twice Pratik, you have won:
- Any movie of your choice on DVD or Bluray
- Any item from the Blender e-Store (hey, tears of steel!?)
- $500 for any charity of your choice.
- A permanent spot in the Winner’s Hall of Fame
So that concludes this blender competition! A big thank you to everyone who entered this time round. I really do appreciate all the effort that you put into your entries. It’s people like you that keep the blender community alive! Unfortunately I can’t give critiques on every entry that gets sent in, but if you’d like some feedback, drop your name in the comments below and I’m sure the blender community would be more than happy to give you some pointers.
