Here my monthly list of my favorite threads at Blender Artists Forums:
SR-71A Blackbird by Kologe
I love great planes, and I love good textures, and this images are the combination of these to attributes – a Blackbird, this wonderful US reconnaissance aircraft built in the sixties, presented in a fotorealistic way, rendered in Lux – simply great.
The old road by tetsuo001100
This project has good models, textures and grass. But more importantly, the composition is great although being horizontally symmetric. And the sepia-effect can hardly be less fitting than here – creating a nostalgic mood.
Ori Light Final by PLyczkowski
In my opinion, Lowpoly Characters made in Blender are much too rare – and this one once again shows that they can really look great: A well-designed Female Game Character in some very detailed suit. I especially like the glowing power cells on her back.
Megagolf by supersocks
This blender game really impressed me: It looks great (the style reminded me of trackmania nations, which isn’t a bad sign at all), is really fun to play and stays challenging for a long time. Because you need to use both your brain to solve some tricky tracks and the right feeling, it is neither boring nor too difficult.
Number 5 is ALIVE by FloorPlay
It’s basically only the modelling that is done here, but the moviestar already looks great and so I can really recommend this one as a very promising work in progress. Not every details fits the original, but see it as some updated version and it is simply a stunning robot.
Steampunk Mousetrap by BenDansie
Yes, it’s one of the greatest short animations I’ve ever seen, although the idea is so simple – but simply great. A mousetrap in a well-done steampunk style (these textures!) but still relatively realistic in its features and appearance. Even as a still, I would love this project and most probably mention it here, but animated, with a robotic dummy test mouse instead of a real one for a less violent look – nothing more to say. Just watch it – also on vimeo, an you can even download it.
Enjoy these wonderful pieces.
