Zach here, with another round of useful and inspiring CG and Blender related resources.
In the past weeks, I had a blast working on a new trailer for my recently updated Master 3D Sculpting in Blender course, which you can watch above.
It was the first time I used CyclesX (a new faster version of Cycles coming to Blender 3.0) for a full project, and I was blown away on how fast it rendered the images for the animation.
In the trailer, you can also see a cool transition effect, where the clay shaded creature turns into the colored version. If you are interested in how I made this, check out the freshly published video below.
Let me know if there is anything else from the trailer that you would like to know how I did it, and I might create another tutorial (just reply to this mail).
Here is a very cool lightning tutorial by Bad Normals, created using Geometry Nodes. The intro shot of the video is also pretty stunning!
Here is a short yet very impressive Blender sci-fi animation, created by Neil Taylor. Love how huge everything feels in the shot, and the mood and atmosphere is on point.
He also has more sci-fi animations on his YouTube channel, so definitely check them out.
Last but not least, here is our latest challenge winner interview with Florian Linke, who won the 1st place in the Treehouse challenge.
He shows, that even as someone relatively new to CG, can create stunning artworks and win a challenge like this.
That's it for this week, now enjoy your weekend and stay creative!
