Hi,

Thanks to all who took part on last weekend's "drifting" challenge. 

This week I bring you a swimming pool. I modelled and rendered the scene in Blender 3D,  and textured it in Adobe Substance Painter. However, it looks far too quiet for a pool party. Can you liven it up ?

 

The “rules”:

  • Anything goes, as long as it meets the forum rules on decency, copyright etc.
  • Anyone, and everyone, is welcome to have a go, whether you are a complete beginner or a Photoshop expert. It also would be great to see all those who have taken part in the previous challenges come and take part in this one.
  • There are no prizes apart from the chance to practice, show off, or bring a bit of humour and fun. Don't be shy, join in and have a go!

To download the image below at 3000 x 2000 pixels with an embedded ICC colour profile (sRGB), hover over the image and click on the circle with the arrows at the top right. Then, when the image opens in its own window, right click and choose “Save Image As/Save Target As” (or similar depending on your browser).

For those that like to get a sense of scale, the pool measures 12 m x 8 m and is 1m deep at the shallow (far) end and 2m at the deep end. The "camera" lens used in rendering is 26mm focal length.

 

When posting back your image – please use the Blue reply button in this first post. If posting a comment on someone else’s entry then please use the grey reply button next to their image post.

 

Have fun.

 

Dave

Haha yeah. I was going to add rubber rings as the pockets but it looked to crowded. I suppose you could use the rubber ring there so it's like a game of tiddlywinks/pool.

Nice idea Rafael. You have the perspective spot on and the colour matches well. But can we let a man with your skills get away with that other building reflection in the water ?  🙂

Oops! Good eye, Dave. I blame the landscapers, they were a bit sloppy and they did not clean up after themselves very well. Thank you for the comment!

"Do you want to carpool?" they asked. "Sure," I answered, unsuspecting.

Thanks, Dave ! 🙂

 

Dean, I glanced through SFTW Part 64 to see if you had posted (you did) and came across this comment from March 2019 that made me do a double-take. I loved the fountain, though — it was perfect!
