New User's Contest - October 2016

Sponsored by Khory & DAZ 3D  

Are you new to the 3D World? Are you at the beginning stages of learning 3D rendering? Have you been around

for a little bit but feel you could benefit from some feedback or instruction? Have you been around awhile

and would like to help other members start their creative journey? Well then come and join the fun as we

host our newest contest...



This month, our attention will be on 'Atmosphere'. When working on your submissions, if you would like to get feedback as you work or before posting your final image, please post your image to the WIP THREAD. People will be popping in to the WIP THREAD to give you some critique and advice on your entry and help along the way.

Please keep all comments on entries etc to the WIP THREAD as well because comments or requests for help/feedback/advice will be removed from the contest thread and merged into the WIP THREAD. This thread is only for posting final contest submissions.

For those veterans of the forums that would like to help, because this contest is designed for the beginner to learn from, we will be randomly selecting posts offering helpful tips and/or critiques to receive a special voucher as well so, whether you are a seasoned artist or an aspiring one, there is fun for everyone!

    "Trick In the Mist"

    Created entirely in Daz Studio, with special note of Fuseling's Filth Shader for fog.
    I was walking past the local pumpkin patch and I thought I saw something out of the corner of my eye. I didn't take a second look.

    My second entry:

    "Dividing Candy"

    Skully hasn't been able to trick or treat since the prank with Wolfie and Drac went terribly wrong.  So Mummy makes sure that Skully gets a share.  Drac and Wolfie will be out all night again. 

    Rendered in 3Delight, postwork in Photoshop

    No Swimming

    Daz Studio 4.9.

    Photoshop - used Ron's smoke and steam brushes to break up the fog a bit and added the glowing eye to the skeleton and the rest is all studio.  No filter on this version.
