Blender: Modeling a Corona Virus in a few steps

in #blender10 months ago (edited)

Modeling a Corona Virus with blender


Add a Ico Sphere with 4 Subdivisions.


Select some Faces and enable Individual Origins.

Extrude the selected faces.

Extrude a second time.

Scale the faces.

Add a Subdivision Modifier with at least 4 Subdivisions.

I did the above steps with a few more faces and duplicated the virus some times. Then I got the following scene.

For coloring the virus, I designed the following two materials.


After assigning the two materials to the virus and setting the world background to red I start the rendering process and got the following result.


Then after activating the Depth of Field option in the camera settings and rendering again, I got the final result with some unsharpness in foreground and background.



Hey man ... great to see some blender things around here.

I have been using blender in the past as well and setup a Blender community here.

We can try and see can we grow it :)

Nice work! I've been modeling a generic coronavirus in the past two weeks and even made a video of it that I posted in an FB artgroup. I'll post my version soon. It was rendered in Octane for Blender.

Exceptional modeling!

That's some pretty cool looking virii O_O and some nice textures you slapped on it. Think the dof version looks the best as that arm that's jutting out in the immediate foreground is a bit jarring without it XD Nice work :)
