2021 Collab: Week 19 “Fruit” CLOSED

FedPete, can you add me to the collab alert list?

Best Regard,


I was very short on time this week, but I wanted to enter with something - as last weeks only 3 entrants was a little disheartening…

Given I hadn’t much time to dedicate to this, I decided I wanted to do something (and hopefully learn a little along the way), on Camera focus and FStop, particularly with a heavy out of focus background.

I found an image online I liked and I decided to use it as inspiration.

My entry on the subject of fruit this week is - “Wild Blackberry”.


I love all the tiny details you included on this, like the dirt on the leaves and the colour variations of the berries.
The background turned out really nice as well.
Great picture! (….and here I thought I was going to win by having the only entry :stuck_out_tongue: )

I can’t take credit for the leaf in the foreground…

I wanted to model and shade it myself (I tried several times) - I looked into probably 20 leaf tutorials on YouTube, but each and every one of them used a texture image - so I had to go that route as I was so pressed for time this week.

I wanted to do it procedurally, as I don’t like using an image texture so prominently.

Oh, right. I didn’t even consider that.
It looks good though!

You have still one day to finish the “Fruit” Blender collab.
Fewer competitors, more chance of winning. Submit your entry as a quickie to show off. And maybe you will be the winner of this week’s collab.

Have fun, stay healthy!

My fruit. Reused my very very basic apple from the city’s icon collab but textured it properly with an image. Likewise changed the leaf out for an image on a plane.
The wasp was started a while back and had most of the geometry made and was attempted to be ready for last week’s collab but I got bogged down trying to use multiple wasp images to texture it with.
So this week it all came together!
The original apple I had a quick play with texture painting, I knew the principles but never used them before. However, now I baked the poorly very poor looking wasp image textures onto one image then proceeded to use it as the ‘marking out’ of the wasp pattern while texture painting, largely smearing, later actual painting in, the wasp surface.

All took a good deal of time but the collab did get me using various things I had never used before!
Even baking a multi image texture wasp to another exactly the same but joined into one object and one image.

Now I have a handy wasp I can use in other projects!


Amazing Pomegranate!


Oh a pomegranate! Had to look up Garnet as a fruit it means a semi precious gem stone to me!
Great entry as usual Blest.

Such a high detail and realism, fine piece of work.

The floor needs a bumpmap …

:sob: I tried! It is a good Texture haven Forest Floor texture but spent some time trying to make the displacement work. Gave up for time. That said I easily fall into the trap of wanting to do so much more. Should be lots of fallen apples, many half decayed or eaten, an apple tree, grass and weeds, A blackbird feasting, a butterfly or two drinking, some fallen leaves, dappled sunlighting, etc.


Maybe just a simple twig to show or give the impression of depth.

Here is my greedy worm.
Haven’t had much time this week so I made this procedural apple with procedural texture. Slapped few spheres together for the worm and arranged it in to a comic strip. Hope you like it.


:rofl: :+1:

Hello! I have been reading a book about an ill fated turn of the century attempt to start a colony of “cocovores,” people who only subsist on coconuts. I looked it up, and coconuts are indeed fruits.

This palm will be a great addition to my recently compiled nature library for an environments course I am taking. I loved getting to practice these nature skills in a challenge.

Of course, there is never enough time to make it perfect. I would have loved to play around more with the lighting, as well as frame it in a way that showed off the palm leaves while keeping focus on the coconuts as a subject.

I hope everyone had a good week working on this!
