Thought I'd start a thread to share some test projects which may or may not ever get finished...

First up has a nordic flavour, mainly to try different landscape techniques etc and also play with Film LUTs in the VFB.
The water/sea/lake is entirely procedural, still needs some work but it's getting there.

There's also a few quirky uses of Corona Distance Texmap, for the graduated ground material (which transitions from wet sand, to dry sand, to harder ground linked to the distance from the water) - and also creating the displacement of the small waves at the edge of the land.

Probably more to follow, when I have time to revisit.

Just... that fire (Cam06).
It gives it off, since it's too large for that seating "hole" (nobody could seat nowhere near it & would most probably also damage the wooden decking) + smoke abruptly ends (if it is dissipating fast, dynamic fire would show blurred - assuming you're goal is mimicking photography).
Otherwise, very natural ambience. Do keep working on it.

Agreed - the fire was just a quick test of OpenVDB fire/smoke, definitely needs to be smaller + more smokey.

Couple of grey matte renders to accompany the above tests.

More little tests, this time as an offshoot of a recent commissioned project. Had to model/map these cider bottles for a different purpose (which I'll pop here at some point), so thought it was worth making a little test advertising piece too.

Been tinkering with this side project for a while (based on a design by HIL Architects) - mainly wanted to produce something a bit darker than my usual...

It might eventually become an animation - depends on time (both time to complete, and time to render animation frames...)

I also screen recorded a few hours when I started the project, so that could pop up somewhere too.
