In the last couple of weekends, we have had a jail scene and a shopping scene. But with lockdown around the world, I thought that for this week we should escape to the countryside.
So, I have made a cabin in the woods. It is all CGI and created and rendered in Blender 3D, with Adobe Substance used for texturing.
Now the scene is set, what will you do with it? What story will you tell with your edited image?

This is beautiful, Dave!
Thank you Jane. In the 3D world, just like in Bob Ross' paintings, you get to decide where everything lives 🙂
For those who are interested in 3D, it used :
- Particle systems for grass, trees and flowers.
- Fluid simulation for smoke
- Volume scatter for haze
I had to look that up to see what it meant Jacob. Our New Zealand colleagues may cotton on quicker. 🙂
As soon as I saw the wood, so fine and full of light, I came to think of New Zealand woodland as seen in the railbiking (SFTW69) and elsewhere; and last time I saw the sign, I knew I had to use it in SFTW one day.
Life in the farm...
Thanks for taking us back to the old days Rafael, although I wasn't sure whether the girl at the front was tapping into a smart phone. I do now know where Jane got her eggs from last week - the giant chicken on the left 🙂
Funny, Dave! I hadn't thought about a smart phone but I hope she wouldn't waste time with that in such a lovely outdoor setting! The figure on the left is supposed to be smoke coming from a fire the two kids are tending to. Maybe they are cooking the chicken? 😆😆🤣
Oops now I see the fire - I did think it was a chicken though. Too much red wine tonight 🙂
Sorry about having my watermark on this post - after all, it is mostly your great CGI! I forgot that my export preset puts it on automatically. I would be happy to re-post it without it if you'd like.
If it's not a chicken, then where did I get the eggs last week? 🙂
Are those Fuse characters Graham?
yes but the insects are from Adobe Stock
Dave, your lovely woodscape made me feel romantic.
“All it takes is faith and trust . . . ”
Nice moonlight Rista 🙂

Bob Ross would love all of your happy trees, Dave!
I added a few of my favorite yellow wildflowers to your blue ones. They get a bad rap when they grow in yards, but when you really look at them, they are truly beautiful.
I'm glad someone is making use of the cabin Jane. I hope the dog keeps an eye on the rucksack, you never know who is about.
As for the yellow flowers, I've got some of those in my lawn - definitely weeds there ! 🙂
Can we quote with the current forum software? Dave, your 'keeping an eye on the rucksack' comment got me thinking about the New Zealand Kea. I have done most of the South Island big walks, and we were constantly reminded to be careful what we left outside because the Kea would nick it, or if too big to carry away, they get inside and nick the contents. I've heard stories of hiking boots getting dragged away, and the handlebar grips pecked off mountain bikes.
I love the wee dog Jane. I imagine that such an idyllic scene would find away to be free of midges?
Lets all play spot the animals. I hope there are at least two elephants behind the cabin. If not, that is one long elephant 🙂
Anyone wishing to have a closer look can RightClick and see full size; I ususally post at about 1500 px in width.
