Low Poly Igloo by SupahPOW31 Low Poly Igloo by SupahPOW31
In short, I needed a new background for my 4k monitor, so I made this. I figured I might as well make it winter themed given what time of year it is. xD

I hope everybody has a merry Christmas!

Programs Used:
Blender 2.76 using the Cycles engine with OpenCL rendering at 2,000 samples on my AMD R9 Fury X
Gimp for color correction

Render Time:
54 minutes

may I ask how you did the snow? (aside from an intensity voronoi displacement texture)

Here is a link to some screenshots of the scene setup. Including the material node tree for the snow, I hope this answers your question! xD

The snow is essentially just a triangulated plane, with a displacement modifier on it, making it look like hills etc. The material is just a single diffuse node with two colors of white mixed together with a noise texture as the factor. What gives the snow its look is just a noise texture being used as a displacement map on the material output node.

And a very cutelow poly igloo it is too.  Those snow drops look heavy XD And it all goes surprisingly well with the not-low-poly snow XD

All my friends that I showed this to complained about the snow being out of place, but I couldn't find a way to make low poly snow stand out enough and not look overly dull. I think the more "realistic" snow is a nice contrast to the rest of the low poly scene. xD
