For this week, I decided to do things I normally don’t do during these challenges, like creating custom materials, use highly detailed textures, detailed animations, and rendering with cycles. Yes, I decided to go all out with this topic, hope you guys enjoy my entry.

Here's my entry.


Do you want to know the fun part of this? I had to redo the animation 4 times :rofl:


It needs sparkling stars …



Ears are difficult but who needs them … or a complete body …
I hesitate on hair, I need it. But it makes my machine slow. And less project time on hand.


A nice entry ! and a well designed character.

But does Genomes mean this ?

Doesn’t it means the complete set of genes in a cell or living thing.

The actual representation should be more on scientific line to represent the topic, I think , but it’s only me !

and I didn’t do anything on this thinking so. I knew it will take a long long time, like Dutch Windmill, but once done it alike would become a lifetime asset to do many things around it.

I interpreted it not as “dna genome”, because of the illustration attached to the description of “Gnomes”. See WIKI.


but there is no representation of DNA here :cry:

this is what I meant actually

and this wiki definition is an absolute mess !

Genomes and gnomes are not the same thing. I think the wiki does a pretty good job of summarizing what gnomes are. But you’ve heard of the concepts of gnomes, right? This isn’t your introduction to it?



English language and spelling.
gEnomes are the dna thing. Said GeeeNomes.
gNomes are mythical creatures often in one incarnation as common garden ornaments. Said Nomes.

coming too hot !

never knew the topic was directed for traditional children’s stories !

but, but luck, met the inventor of Lexicon here.

Hon’ble Sir !

Somehow, one meaning of Gnome in US way is

a person who works by using their mind, but does not talk to, and is not known by, the public:
The gnomes in the back room are putting the finishing touches to the new software.

But, since you say so Sire !

Hope, this is the only meaning and difference in English language and spelling!

Decided to add just some small details to my silly entry. The card also has volume now.



This is the project phase to add (tiny) details to the model and upgrade the material/textures. But that will take another day.

I did a quick face paint, using vertex color mixed with a material setup.
Because my machine gets slow. Couldn’t add fine details because of the uneven mesh, due to auto dynotopo. Also, I saw possibilities for the newly learned skills of adding stitches using geo nodes. It was a fun, short project. With a lot of possibilities.


Speed challenge. Started today. Let’s see how far I get before voting :rofl:

This is my submission for now:

Looks more like some sort of goblin maybe. But the idea is to add a sack as clothing, and wearing socks. Kind of like dobby from Harry Potter. Then have him holding a rope to some deadly contraption with somebody just entering through a door. Most likely wont finish that in time, but wont stop me from trying!


Amazing !

This character has come up so well ! It’s pro grade. A lifetime asset !
