There were some great ideas and images in our last SFTW Golf Course challenge. This week, I thought we should take a walk without the clubs and have modelled and rendered this countryside stile, using Blender 3D , Adobe 3D Painter and XFrog. So now we have the country scene, what will you do to bring it to life?

Putting on the “Style” !
Dave, this render is beautiful and the detail is impeccable! Nicely done!
Thank you Jane.
You do realise that you have driven over the butterfly in that flash car. Was it a competitor? 🙂
Haha! Your butterfly didn't get squashed, Dave, it flew off to find some friends. 😊
This is what it's like all around the NC 500 in Scotland !!
Countryside overrun with fast motors !!!

I could see Dave “Putting on the Style” on the NC 500 in Scotland in this car — except he’d have to model the back end first! 😊
I 'so' want someone to recognise the origin of :
"And today is another cracker, if I may say so." (name that quote)
My turn now, Trevor.
I want someone to recognize the origin of "Putting on the Style". 😊 Not being from the U.K., I had to look it up!
Sounds like Lonnie Donegan. A Medieval Scottish skiffle band leader.
Well done Jane. When I added this week's challenge I wondered if we would get Lonnie sitting on the stile and playing.
Well done Jane.
My only clue was knowing that you like to use clever puns in your titles, so I knew "Putting on the 'stile' " meant something, I just didn't know what until I went to Google. Here's Lonnie singing "Putting on the Style" for others like me who had never heard of him !
Just before the fall, dressed in "style"...
Haha. Call the health and safety team, that's not going to end well !
One of my early contributions to SWTW was to put humpty on a wall. You beat me to this Rafael. 🙂
"Another Dream (I'm Exactly Where I Need to Be)"
I like the style of that James.
Should I know the source of the words/lyrics?
I might have inadvertently pulled something from some song but I don't know what. lol
I usually have an idea and just run with it. I've had so many dreams like this where I'm in some random place that I've never been to. They're oddly comforting to me for some reason.
Well it would make a good song title 🙂
Google resolves it to two songs. Well, probably multiple songs because 'Just a dream' has to feature in countless song lyrics. 'I'm just where I need to be', on the other hand, produced only one hit AFAICT in a song by Vincent Vega. An interesting fact is that our Ged designed the cover for the latter song.
It reminds me of a quote by Douglas Adams:
"I seldom end up where I wanted to go, but almost always end up where I need to be. "
The shed and the lamp both fit well in that scene Jain. Nice job!
She is back again. (I used for SFTW 119_Bridge cross)
What is she looking for?
Wonderful glow effect you have created K. What did you do to achieve it? Not sure if I asked this last time. Maybe did and maybe my memory isn't great. 🙂
