Back in March 2022, a writer friend introduced me to 3D art and rendering, and ever since, I’ve been exploring it, teaching myself the intricacies of producing good renders such as posing, lighting, and post work. In December 2022, I decided it was time to share what I accomplished, so I started posting images I created to social media.
This post collects all the pieces from the two month period, and I intend for it to be a start of a recurring series for all those who are too busy to keep up with social media posts. If you’d rather see them as they come, new images are posted on my Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Bluesky, Threads, and Mastodon every Wednesday.
In this render, we have a poor old lady who might have gotten lost in a bad neighborhood. Hopefully she find her cat before it’s too late!
In this one, I was playing around with distance fog and monochromatic coloring.
This render was inspired by horror movies and it almost… didn’t happen. My poor PC kept refusing the amount of textures and fog I put in. So, in the end, I had to render the background and the foreground separately, and put the fog in during post work.
This time, I was working on something many of us can probably relate to… *shudders*
The End of the Bride
My take on the end of the Bride of Frankenstein.
Teddy from Hell
This Teddy from Hell is one of my earlier creations and probably the most horror-like render I did. It was fun to add more splatter in postwork too!
Grandma is Learning Technology
After a full month of sharing Halloweeny renders, I was happy to change things up a bit. “Grandma is learning technology”—I’m sure we all can relate to it when we have to learn something new.
One with Nature
This image is rather unusual when it comes to the theme, since it’s not very fantasy or scifi. I was looking for a new way to use one of my many flowers models, and it just came together.
When it comes to 3d models, they often look too clean and tidy to look real, so every now and then, I play with some grunge. The background feels a bit too busy to me, so I might redo it one day. Until then, I’m sharing the current version.
