Last Week’s Collab
Hall of Fame


Some Props… :slight_smile: Hopefully I have time for more!

PS: maybe you recognize the skull from an earlier challenge :wink:


Oh that alone is already stunning to look at

That looks magical. How did you make the glitter? Is it particle physics or just lots and lots of meshes? Also, nice use of the skull. I feel like ot’s staring deep into my soul shivers


If I were to guess. I’d say it’s a curve, converted to a mesh with a particle system.


Glitter was a particle system with a force field: curve guide :slight_smile: You just let the animation play, until your happy with it. First time I learnt about force fields with this, but they’re so much fun!

Here’s another prop WIP (Awesome topic @Tanunen -> I get so many ideas ^^):


Ohhhh, inspired by one of my favorite artists, M. C. Escher. Nicely done. :grinning:



Here is the start of my submission


Here is my completed stand selling Wands.

I originally thought about doing a full on magic shop but, decided that would be a bit too ambitios for this project. I’ll just borrow some potions from @Sblendid if I need one :innocent:


Here Is My Render

This Is My First Time In Blender Collab


I Was Thinks That Mine Current Post Does Not Match To The Theme So I decided To Go And Replace This, Here Is My Progress Update on New Idea , Hope I Will Finish It In Time


Yes I remember the skull. It is from the cave scene. Which has the Dino shadow on the background wall. But I think in this render of the skull that nice bumpy noise texture is missing. Great scene though. Specially the glittering effect😍

You are absolutely correct. Tried to keep it more “stylized”, that’s why I didn’t use the noise texture here. I am still struggeling to figure out, how to make everything look more “sharp” though.
And yes, the glitter was most fun to do as well :smiley:

I was planning to make a whole stylized magic shop scene, but because I have too much work to do with lectures and my master thesis, I don’t think I’ll get it done in time. :pensive:

For making things more sharp, the compositing tab and enabling use nodes can help. It’s similar to shader nodes, but for “post processing”. A little more simple, possible, solution is to go to the Render Properties tab, under Color Management at the bottom and then “Look”. Maybe high or very high contrast will give you the result you’re looking for.


Oh nice to hear that you are doing masters. I had completed mine back in the year 2016. Yes the final submission of the thesis is really a pain in the bum😂

Your props are looking great!

What’s your major?

Thanks :slight_smile: I am studying medicine. Which is why I am most active on here during my semester breaks in summer or winter :wink:
