And here we are my final iteration and render of the lakeside shot I've been working on. I'm pretty happy with what I've been able to do with my first Blender project. It's been a really great learning experience and I'll definitely be returning to Blender.
Thanks for taking the time to look at and follow this journey I've been on I'm super hopeful for future projects and who knows maybe one of them will lead to my first position. As always thanks again

Final Comp on my first iteration is done. One problem I've had in the past is dwelling on things for too long so I wanted to get one iteration no matter how bad it might be done so that I have time to polish and improve.

Hey everyone this is my first modelling contest I've ever entered so for my first entry and introduction to working in Blender I wanted to do something simple but dear to my heart. Summers for me have always been filled with memories of going to the Lake and relaxing on the dock with a good book. Here is a reference photo I took last time I was out there that I think will be simple enough for my first time in blender.
