This week’s subject: “Travel impressions” - Something that reminds you of a place you’ve visited and would like to return to.


Well, I did say I’d probably only do a quick and simple one this time so, here is my submission.

This is one of four maps I bought when I was working in Hawai’i.
Aloha, see you next thursday.

Congrats @Blest ! :partying_face:
Not doing a memento so much as an impression of the place itself (WIP)…
Update2: (Adding some detail… close to calling it.):


… can anyone guess where?


I would say Rome, altough it does remind me as well of cathederals in Berlin. But yeah it can be anywhere in europe :smiley:

Fair guess, and had you guessed that a couple of years back you would have been technically correct… now, not so much… I guess that gives the country away :man_facepalming:
Hopefully it will become more clear when I post an update. :wink:

:rofl: If I am right it is very much still in Europe.


Can’t blame me for getting confused considering recent events… :wink:

I googled it, I know what’s it…


I haven’t traveled much but if there’s a place that I’d like to visit again, it’s definitely city of Lviv
It’s got beautiful tourist centre but that aside, it’s well known for the chocolate that they’re making
It was probably the best chocolate that I’ve ever tasted, so I decided to make a this little scene as a memento of that city:

I used this picture as a reference:

I didn’t want to spend too much time on making it, so I skipped most of details and it kind of looks flat because of it :expressionless:
But at least I got to play with a few cloth physics and stuff


I decided to go for a cartoonish look of one of my favourite theme park rides (which is not a rollercoaser). Can you guess the park and the ride?
With this occasion, I tried animation for the first time, and I’m really proud of what I could get with the most basic of animation skills.

So the story behind this submission is a trip that me and my Dad went on this past weekend. We went up north to do some hiking and parked somewhere in the woods, we were gonna sleep there instead of a hotel because we wanted to somewhat be camping, but didn’t want to do tents. So instead, we brought blankets and cushions to put in the backseat, the problem is that our body heat overpowered the cold climate outside the car, so since we couldn’t bear the heat, and we didn’t want the tons of bugs outside to get in, we put one of the sheets over the windows to keep the bugs out, while having the windows open. The thing behind the trees is a golem who’s design is based off a rock I saw while we hiked: I got inspired by it and made this:


please don’t judge me. :slight_smile:
it’s 15 years ago, but it was a good time.


by the way this is (nearly) only one object edited in edit mode.
I have seen some videos from imphenzia, 10 minute modelling.

So i tryed to make a room that has something to do with the topic
and in special with a location that I have visited and that I associate with very good memories.


Might just be my screen but it seems really dark. Hard to tell what’s going on. Maybe could add some moonlight?

I think it may be your screen because when looking at in on my phone, it was darker than in reality, but on my computer, it seems fine.

Could be. Images on my phone are Always much darker, buy this one was also dark on my laptop. Not at home so I can’t check on my desktop. :man_shrugging: maybe you can disregard

There’s a way in Cycles to check light exposure! (Tip from a BlenderGuru video I watched a while ago) Under Color Management, choose false color, instead of filmic:

Areas that are overly bright lit are red, green/greyish is ideal. Blue is darker. :slight_smile:
It’s a way to evaluate the brightness of the light, no matter the settings of every individual screen. Maybe that helps!


I don’t seem to buy many souvenirs so did a photo I took that I’ve used as a screensaver (without the snow). Thanks to @Tyger2 and his thread a few weeks ago that featured glass and


Cool! Is it Japan?
