December 2008 MMC Challenge – Abandoned


This can be just about anything, a piece of luggage on a railway platform, a car on the motorway, a sporting event in bad weather, a sinking ship, an old building, a whole community a whole planet. The only real limit is your imagination.


New Users - Don't be put off entering if you are fairly new to trueSpace as it is not always the best model\scene that wins. Judges can be equally influenced by good interpretation of the theme, originality and composition.


Good luck all – and most importantly, have fun.



The Competition:


Overview


The competition is open to all forum users - the idea being to have a challenge that is geared more towards the complete 3D development cycle from concept through modelling, surfacing, lighting, rendering, and post process. This is a chance for trueSpace user's to really show their stuff and help motivate the production of portfolio quality images.


The Rules


1) Submissions must express the stated topic.

2) Use your own work. No pre-made, purchased or free models, please.

3) You must start a Work In Progress (WIP) thread for your submission.

4) Final submissions should be a single image (800 x 600 max) and a link to your WIP thread.

5) There are no restrictions to the amount of images you can place on your WIP thread.

6) Indicate tools used to create your submission. trueSpace (any version) should be the primary application used to create the image. Post Processing in a paint program is okay.


The Timeline


Entry Deadline: Monday December 22nd at 23:59 GMT.

Poll starts Tuesday 23rd December at 12:00 GMT

Poll Ends Monday December 29th at 12:00 GMT


Notes


It's important that everyone who's planning to enter start a WIP thread. You can do that by starting a new thread in The Work In Progress Forum


With difficult challenges like this, many entries are over ambitious and don't make it to completion. In cases like this, an entry is judged entirely on the work displayed in the contestants WIP.

This is perfect, :) I have three scenes floating in my mind that I want to get to and one of them slides nicely into this. ;)

Here is my final entry:


http://forums1.caligari.com/truespace/showthread.php?p=88622#post88622


All models were done in trueSpace 7.6 on the model side.


(Edit) I just realized that there were two things , not one, I did not model, the photos and the tree casting the shadow.


In the interest of full disclosure and fairness I wanted to ensure that I reported this. In checking the rules I see that Breech did not want any pre-made objects in the scenes so if this disqualifies me then that's okay because it really doesn't look the same without it and I am not able to make a tree like that, yet. My apologies for the error.

Don't worry about it tahnoak, the photographs are textures and are quite permissable whilst you could easly convert the tree into an alpha plane by painting it white and rendering it against a black background. Thanks for being honest though.

Well my tree was done using DRYAD. Now I took a base tree and adjusted it to my liking. So it is not predmade. I do not want to model a tree..way to much time.
