This is "Mister Sandman", my summer version of a snowman 😉⛄🌞.
Where's the sandcastle for the snowman to reside in?
Thank you, euv , that's a good idea 😉! The scene for "Mister Sandman" of course still has to be created ...
duerer You are killing it in terms of creativity! You've got my vote ! super nice!
You are setting the bar! :)
Looks great duerer , very imaginative. When the northern hemisphere are making snowmen, they must be making mister sandman in the southern hemisphere right?
adrian2301 Right, and vice versa so that people in both hemispheres don't get out of practice 😉😁! With my project, I just need to get better in lighting and render setting to get most out of what I've created. And if it's animated, then video editing including audio-video-syncing is something I need to become better in.
Hope the ice-cream man is not running out of sand cones in your scene 😉
I didn't have enough time for making a significant progress with my scene during the last days. So, that's what I've created so far:
And with an HDRI Sky:
With a sand castle like that, you must be the king of the beach! Nice progress!
Thank you, slenaerts 😀! I just don't know whether I can finish this before this challenge ends 😔?
A quick update on the castle with flags and spiral stairs around the central tower:
And Mister Sandman got three Saint James scallops as buttons and two coconut ears 😉:
A close-up of one of the Saint James scallops:
I see you were working hard on the floral necklace.
So, I didn't manage to finish my scene just in time:
Two weeks for such a challenge are far too short for a non professional like me. Really sad 😥.
An aerial view of Mister Sandman's island:
Great job duerer , a great idea for this challenge, and it turned out great too. I know you could create something professional given more time, its tough in two weeks. Well done 👍
Thank you, adrian2301, for your encouraging words 😊!
Took me some time to find the (at least for myself 😉) smartest way how to model the battlements of the outer castle wall and the path in between them::
The red portions in older version of that wall played an important role.
Just for fun: I added Mister Sandman's frosty cousin which I've modeled following Chunck Trafagander's chunck "Let's build a snowman in Blender" course:
True words 😉:
I've used the free "Medici Text" font by Dieter Steffmann.
Finally, I succeeded in creating palm trees following Kent's theluthier excellent tutorial series on creating "Simple EEVEE environments":
Palm trees populating Mister Sandman's island:
Whoa! Looking nice with the palm trees.
It makes me wanna do my own sandman's private island too.
euv I would like to see your island creation 😀!
Mister Sandman in his palm tree forest:
With a reduced number of trees, more of the castle becomes visible:
Kodak moment. :D
Then Mister Sandman needs a foto camera hanging down from his neck 😉😁! But he's the king of the island 👑 and has his own court photographer 😉📸!
