    Hi there!, i have not much time lately, but i really wanted to join this challenge, so i make this... 

    There's not much i can contribute about knowledge in this forum, almost every trick i have learned for carrara, comes from here, or the user manual hahahaa

    Anyway, i will explain my scene, sorry if it is too basic:

    The hologram figures i make them using a simple cube modified in the modeling room, Then i use extrusion for al the facets, and created a new material group for the extruded squares.  Then i make that squares invisible, and give the rest of the figure an emisive material (in octane render). I think in carrara native renderer you can make the same with glow effect. 

    For the outfit, i used a very amazing outfit by AerySoul called iVe  (NLA), that already have very nice glowing maps that can ve converted to emisive in octane render.  


     

     

    Excellent work namtar3d, glad you found the time to join in !!!

    This is by no means the final scene, a lot more to do...a lot. Well, but anyways, I modeled two simple monster figures, a 'husband' and 'wife'. They'll be sitting in their chairs (those chairs are just stand-ins at the moment) listening to an old radio, sort of like a 40's retro living room scene...

    I haven't given up.  Just been distracted lately.  

    If you remember the race track and terrain, 

    ...

    then here is the low res toy car

    BUT - it only has simple base shaders right now.

    Some Shader Work - Working on the Tire Treads

     

    New scene with black background

    Created a replicator with simple primitives setup for angled bars

    Rendered out

    Placed on UVMap for the tire tread

    Test Render

     

    EDIT:  Oh no!  My angled tread is angled in the wrong direction!

    Some More Shader Work

    Intermediate Step for side of tires

    Bugs bunny line when he is announcer for a car race - "Pneumatic Tire is flat!"

    I want to have Pneumatic tire written on the side of the tire, but my tire UV is circular. Need the writing to be bent.  So, I started a new scene in Carrara with black background.Inserted a text object.  Converted to a vertex object.  Used the bone tool to create a simple skeleton.  Do a test render of the text against the black backgroud.  Attached the text to the bones and bent the text for an arch.  Could probably apply a modifier, but I struggle with the bend/twist modifier.

     

    Oops.  Then I discover a typo.  Argh.

    .

     

    Typo Fixed

    As in "Far Out" angel or "something using more colourful adjectives" devil

    Is a PITA when that happens, hope you can get the scene back & running okay.

    Don't forget to put your entries in the entry thread !

    Here are some more scene assets I modeled: the blue chair, the orange chair, the radio, the round table and the floor lamp. I also rigged the two characters, though those aren't the final poses. Still plan on adding a few more elements and making a subtle wallpaper pattern. Colors are still fluid and subject to change, and the lighting is barely touched.

    Excellent - looking forward to the final render !!!

    Sigh

     

    Because Bunyip had emphasized that animations were allowed, I had really wanted to enter an animation of my cars circling the track but it isn't going to get done.  I'm just not comfortable with the animation tools yet. Lots of little things are going wrong, such as the cars turning sideways when I try to align them to the path.  No single issue is a big deal, or unsurmountable, but there are just too many little things going wrong.  I'll enter a still.  Here is something Yucky, but I did creat shaders for the cars.

    Parent them to a target helper that tracks the path

    then you can manually tweak them where needed
