Contest: The Level One Beginner

Just about everyone has been there - the Level One Beginner; And if you haven't you probably know about someone who has. There was a time at the start, when you first opened Blender, probably, when you would praise the Suzanne deity. It's time to go back to that; Not quite, but still...

Objective: Create an artwork whose main subject is the default Suzanne.

You can use any method you want, as long as you use only Blender, and keep at least something that resembles the default Suzanne.


  • Only new and original work
  • Blender only, non commercial add-ons are allowed
  • Keep it nice, nothing you wouldn't want to show to a five year old.
  • Include .blend file, so we can be sure it is yours (use pasteall.org)
  • The competition runs for a week, you can edit/change your submission at anytime
  • Late entries will be disqualified

  • Only one entry per person

  • $\begingroup$ Regarding the "voting guidelines", I think I must have a different definition of "subjective".. See my comments in the chat $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mod Nov 15 '14 at 0:59

The Endless Cycle of Suzanne

(click for a nice html5 video version)

  • $\begingroup$ A very unique approach! $\endgroup$ – VRM Nov 21 '14 at 2:42
  • $\begingroup$ Wow, I love this, would have been awesome if the entire thing were Suzannes, leaves etc. ;) $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Nov 21 '14 at 12:13
  • $\begingroup$ @iKlsR Haha, thanks. That is an interesting idea.. Though Suzanne isn't very leaf-shaped :P The orange part of the flower is made entirely of Suzannes (just in case they are too small to see in the render..). I also tried to do a subtle blender logo reference, I'd be curious to know if anyone spots it ;) $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mod Nov 21 '14 at 12:25
  • $\begingroup$ @gandalf3 I saw, I was thinking of this image when I commented artstation.com/artwork/morning-snow. The snow is made from monkeys. $\endgroup$ – iKlsR Nov 21 '14 at 12:30
  • $\begingroup$ @iKlsR Wow, that is some realistic snow. I think I could mistake that for a photograph :) $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mod Nov 21 '14 at 12:37

NOTICE: To late to qualify

The Fruit of the Noob: The Suzanne Apple.

(Old cult of noob theme tie in)

enter image description here

Fast fact, monkey fruit trees are a real thing.

Eating the Suzanne Apple is believed to give the power of rembering keyboard shortcuts, not that it helps since they are random.

especially as keys can change function depending on where the mouse is, what platform you are running it on, the day of the week, and the random movements of a quark someplace in the center of the Universe. - Blender page on Uncyclopedia


Behold, the Suzanne deity!! :D

    $\begingroup$ Wow, that is detailed! Interesting choice of background/lighting though.. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Mod Nov 21 '14 at 12:29
  • $\begingroup$ Excellent detail! I would be extremely interested in knowing how to do that! +1 $\endgroup$ – VRM Nov 22 '14 at 23:39
  • $\begingroup$ @NoviceInDisguise remesh set to bricks, then replace every brick with a block.. $\endgroup$ – Scalia Jun 22 '15 at 20:55
  • $\begingroup$ @RadishoftheOpera that is not how I did it. I have said in chat before, but if you would like to know I will be happy to tell you. $\endgroup$ – David Jun 22 '15 at 22:20
