Stay Home - Spread Hope Render Challenge


So many more awesome renders! I love checking in every day to see what's new! Hopefully this weekend I will be able to get another one finished. I have so many ideas, but I've been working on finishing a lot of older things since I got an awesome new video card! :)

So many great renders and so much talent, big question is, has this talent always been there and artists were just hiding it or is the 'downtime' the stay at home orders have given everyone time to explore. Whatever the reason it is great to see such a range of ideas make it into the light of day. I hope that such talents are on show long after the pandemic is only a memory.

Dreaming of a Horse
"Stay Home - Spread Hope" stuff used for this: the Hivewire Housecat, Pale Horses for the Hivewire Horse, Savage Zariyah for Dawn, Elfen Poses for Dawn (tweaked a little), Dynamics 25 for Dawn - Patchwork Dress. Oh, and some ground from the Fallen Tree.


The Poker Game is this title. The wonderful faces on the dead tree inspired this. I used three of them and also three more plain in the back ground. Then added the black eyed Susans for a wild touch. The greens for the dead tree and some added rocks helped round out the picture. The hardest part was the arms and poker chips.


Cold wet day here. Have about 1/2" of snow this morning. Hell of a thing in the middle of May. So I thought I play with this render.

But, maybe I should've named this one "Hi there" instead of "Stack up"
