Having fooled around with blender somewhat before, I’m enjoying learning everything from the beginning on this new 2.8+ interface. Hopefully my render shows up on this post, but it’s my first time making a render without entering edit mode which was very fun. Including a screencap of the setup, but I thought it would be interesting to play with the torus as it can do some interesting things in orthographic perspective. The only skills I applied from outside of this intro lesson were to edit the material nodes with the new Shader to RGB converter, and add some bloom in the render properties tab.
Thanks for the fun challenge!
