    Here is a little log of my weekend challenge entry over at the blenderartists forum. – This weeks theme: “aviation”

    First of I modeled the plane and the pilot. Since it will be a still I did not care about modeling the whole character, but stuck with the parts that will be visible in the final image.

     

    >>> pilot and plane put together, still missing the co pilot though. ;)


    >>> On we go, the co pilot is ready to take its seat. ^^

    >>> Some composition testing for the “focus elements” of the scene.

    >>> Next I did a bit of experimenting with the lighting and a procedual sky texture. I am not sure yet, if I like it. First it´s on with the background elements I think.

    To be continued. ;)

    Some “happy clouds” and a few rainbows later …  Render time is up from one to nineteen minutes due to the clouds. :/  ^^

    To be continued. ;)

    A heart shaped looping? – Yes.^^

    I think I am done with the scene. Now on to final rendering.

    Here is the final scene.

    Lightsetup: Two suns, one hard one for the reflections and a soft one for the lighting, a blueish mesh light for the fill light from the right and a soft environment sky light for the overall scene.

     

    And of course, the final image. ;)

    “Over the rainbow”

    Modeled and rendered in BforArtists with some minor color adjustments in Affinity Photo afterwards. – This one is about the joy of aviation and flying around in a candy colored world. ^^

     

    By the way, if there is a BfA 2.0 version coming, I would like to suggest this one as the next splash screen.

    A new Bforartists version will come. And new splash screens are always welcome. Thanks :)

    I love the character design. Excellent work. Were they poly built or sculpted? Retopology was involved?

    The characters were simply poly modeled, but I used the sculpting grab and smooth brushes a lot to do some shaping of the mouth area. No dyntopo though. I actually tried it with dyntopo in the beginning, but after the second crash I just went the odschool way.
