New User's Contest - September 2012
Sponsored by 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...


_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
"Propping up the image"
Intent: To help in better understanding how to have your figures using props.


This month we will be focusing on using props such as Weapons, Tools, or a variety of other miscellaneous items that your figures are holding, manipulating, or otherwise interacting with, not the props you use as scenery.

This will allow for a variety of render themes to be used, so it should be fun.


For a list of the current contest rules, please see this thread: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/discussion/3440/

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________


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 HERE. 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!

"We would like to thank RawArt who has graciously decided to sponsor this months contest" He will be awarding a special prize to the winner of this months "Props"contest. To view some of RawArt's items please see his store front here RawArt's Store


Closing Date: September 29th 2012

    I don't know about the others but I found judging to be harder than most this month. Nice to see people challenging themselves and producing some excellent images already.

    I'm with you, it was a hard month to pick from. Such good work from all the users. I think the next contest will be even better, and no you can't know. I'm not spilling the beans.

    I say congratulations to everyone who entered, and a big thank you to all the people who helped out this month.
