The Blender Collab: Week 28 “Will you go to the Ball?”

Very nice entries from all :smiley: I love how different a take everyone had on this, so very creative renders. Enjoy your week all :raised_hands:


Lot’s of great submissions this week, great job guys!


Many creative and interesting works to choose from, oh my… I had a hard time with it and wished a few times I had more than just one voice. Overall I enjoyed the creativity which all of you showed in interpreting the subject. Good luck to all of you :grin:


Many creative renders indeed, loved each one!
My favorite so far is Ducaluk’s works, simply because that joke is brilliant :stuck_out_tongue:
However Best overall is Tyger2’s work, it’s very well done!


Nice job everyone! I really enjoy these challenges every week. Both making things to submit, and seeing the stuff you all come up with.

It’s always tough to pick a favorite. For me it came down to @Blest’s magical carriage scene and @Kelsie_Anderson’s tiara. I ended up voting for @Kelsie_Anderson’s. It’s relatively simple in that it’s just a single element, but it’s elegant and I thought quite pretty. I also like the framing/composition and color palette. The background is just a plane, but it has a color gradient and just a touch of reflection. :+1:

Here’s some other random feedback:


@Blest Another really nice scene. Very imaginative and detailed. The visual style also feels like a storybook/fantasy. Great colors. So many nice models but for some reason the clouds stand out to me! I like them. My only criticism is some of the horses (especially the one closest the carriage) seem to be standing rather than running/flying. I think a slight change of leg pose might do the trick.


@NP5 It is a cool idea. It feels like it’s being watched by a wicked witch in her crystal ball. That is a cool asset that you have now, seems like you could put lots of different things in there if you wanted to! My critique is that the scene is too dark, and the crystal ball seems flat. Brightening up the scene might remedy both by giving the ball some more reflections which would allow us to see the depth. It seems that maybe the ball has some emission, so maybe you could use with a Fresnel node or something to help highlight different areas.


@Capricas_Kirito A cool idea that didn’t quite meet it’s potential, I think. In hindsight, it might be better just to cut the mice completely and just focus on the carriage instead, since the carriage is quite cool! Or maybe just submit two images together, one that shows the mice better and one that shows the carriage. I like the… what do you call the things that come out of the top of the pumpkin? I can feel them by looking at them.


@Ethan_Martinez That is a cool grappling hook, and I imagine it would be a great game asset! I don’t quite get the connection to the them though… :thinking:


@Enodes Also interesting. I know the princess and the pea story, but I don’t quite get what the machine does.


@Sabet It’s a nice looking ring. I think the shininess issue may be a problem of the angle in which the light is reflecting. if you rotated the ring so that the diamonds are where the reflection in the band is, they might shine more.


@dmfrodol I like the masks, but they are a little small in the scene. It would be nice to have them closer to the camera so that we could see them better. The jester is quite good too. Maybe there’s a way to pose/frame the image so that the jester and masks fill more of the frame.

Sorry if I missed yours. I enjoyed them all, though!


Wow @Tyger2 :smile: thank you! I appreciate the compliment and feedback!

I really like this idea of personalizing feedback. I might do something like it. It’s very supportive of the community.


Thanks. I quite agree I needed more stuff to reflect in the ball. It barely looks like a ball as is. But brighter, day lit, it looked odd would have needed a whole room too. Tried all sorts to light the fog, but I suspect I needed a wispy smoke effect instead. Still, I dipped my toe into a couple of things I never used before. Also stopped myself getting too involved in the carriage. lol.


What do you mean when you say “I don’t quite get the connection to them though…”

“I don’t quite get the connection to (the) theme though…”

them= theme. typo. How it reads to me.

@NP5 is right, it was supposed to say theme. I get that she could use it as locomotion. And it’s cool that it’s a departure from the traditional story. I just think it could have used a bit more of a connection. Something to make it “Cinderella’s Grappling hook”, instead of “a grappling hook”

This week’s entries were particularly funny, love them all.


I could’ve done that and it doesn’t sound like a bad idea, but I personally find it funnier with it looking different instead of being themed for Cinderella.


So, all, who wished to get to the Ball, got their pass. And the Golden Ticket goes to Tiger2 with his sparkling sneakers! Congratulations, Tyger2!!! We are waiting for the new theme !


Thanks! I will put up a new thread right away and update with the link.

Here it is:


Congrats @Tyger2 you earned that with your nice render :+1: And i love the theme you choose for this week. Will be starting in the evening working on it :muscle:
