    Title: Opps!
    Butcher Bob dashed for the door, when his new gig filling in for the missing Magician Mike didn't work out as expected.

    I'm sorry but we had to remove the image - if you post it at a site with content filters and link it, assuming that's allowed under the rules, it will be OK but not without filtering for violence.


    I apologize to the group. The whole time I worked on that, I never thought of it as violence, but I sure see your point now! Unfortunately I don't have a filtered site to post it on, and I don't know if that would work for a contest where everyone needs to see it anyway, so I'll have to withdraw this entry.

    Some more comments:

    aemcclullough Zombie Cleansing - nice lighting and interesting image - makes me wonder what ever is happening?
    Sasje Protect by the Dogs - nice action and I like the kid's horrified expression
    emsim Magic on the Moon - another fun idea
    Luci45 Half-toon Girl - truly weird! But what a nice render - I love the lighting effect
    Estroyer Forgotten and remembered - lovely render, nice lighting, what a great start you've made!
    Ken OBanion What did Ashley find more astonishing... - another weirdy!
    Ken again The Montana Militia - and that one really makes me wish I didn't go back to look at the entries! Only joking - it's nicely done :)
    Kaputcha number 4 - That's really weird but strangely beautiful
    emsim Need a Lift? - good render, and I love the woman's expression at seeing the dog
    Luci45 As you can see Miss Krauss... - another lovely render
    Ken OBanion The Impaired Judgement of Paris - nice one! Poor old Paris, he can see he can't win
    Totte Nuclear power plant operator - ah, the dreaded multi-set draw strikes again - and nicely done too
    barbult - Opps - sort of sorry I missed this one, I think I can guess though!

    And for my next pull...

    376 = DMs Dark Shrine
    323 = Victorian Street Front
    297 = Martial Arts Weapons
    467 = Dust Bowl Clunkers

    Oh dear, that's a weird mismatch.

    I'm starting my next one:
    Residence Entry for Grand Staircase
    Genesis Evolution: Expressions
    Short Order Cook for Genesis
    Stage Magician Props

    OK, I'm sad my previous masterpiece couldn't be posted, but I made a new one which is much tamer. No virtual rabbits were harmed in the making of this image. Being TOS sensitive now, I was concerned about my image title. But I searched the forum and found the acronym used in many posts, so I deem it OK. I took this opportunity to try some new things in my RRRR, like DOF, instancing, and motion blur.

    Title: RTFM
    Chef Sean thought he'd avoid a trip to the market to get a rabbit for his Hasenpfeffer. He saw no reason to waste time reading the manual that came with his new magic kit.

    Tag:barbult#4 (to replace the one that was unacceptable under the forum TOS)

    The draw:
    Panthers
    Forest Dryad Bundle
    Let's Put On A Show
    M4/V4 Elite Ethnic Faces Bundle

    Also used: Stonemason's Enchanted Forest, Lantios Lights, Gorilla for Genesis, Business Suit for Genesis, Tequila hair, phone+tablet. (probably getting the official names of these wrong).

    Tag: Ostadan#1

    Sometimes in these things, a single item kind of dictates the direction the picture will take. Ethnic face, panther,
    druid – these go well together. But 'Let's Put On A Show'? So be it.

    Audition

    And the next (penultimate) draw:

    1207 - Street Mage for Genesis
    1302 - Pharaohs of the Sun for Genesis Male
    1028 - Fantasy Castle Grounds
    794 - Real Emotions for Victoria 3

    Hmm, tricky....

    Win, lose or draw, at least this round of the RRRR gave me an excuse to use the word penultimate. And that's something nobody can take from me!

    Since I have a new tag in my sig I thought I would have a go at this. Gives me just under 3 weeks to come up with an image.

    First draw looks interesting

    127 De Roca Hair

    736 Xerr

    642 Trampoline

    594 Supervisor for Raiver V4

    It is making me chuckle thinking how to use these items.

    Purple Pansies
    Try as she may Maggie Robinson's charms have no affect on the handsome young men. She would console herself by buying the pot of purple pansies, but she has forgotten her purse.

    Nice image!

    How come I've never seen this thread before? The idea is simply brilliant. I pumped my DAZ order history (sorted alphabetically) through randomize.org and got this (I swear; what a cliche!)
    1.Stephanie 3.0 Petite Base
    2.Basicwear for V4 Unimesh
    3.SwimWear
    4.Wet Hair

    I couldn't imagine doing an interesting or funny render with that, but rules are rules so I'll give it a shot.

    I'm going to have to wait for my next days off to start another one but I've been enjoying everyone's renders. I'm glad you've continued to organize this contest, Totte. It really is a lot of fun.

    Here's my next pull:

    1024 Echoes of Andromeda
    852 Revelrie Midway Interiors
    1183 Old Fashioned Bicycles
    352 Omega Huntress X

    Yeah, that's definitely random...

    Thank you! It's great to know you all are having fun, it's what it's all about.
    I know DAZ must have been doing something like this once as there are some bundles called "Think outside the box" (before my time though).

    Thank you, Totte, Melanie and Emperor Ken for comments. (I love the blue-footed booby and cormorant, bought the pack for them.)


    MelanieL, lots of nice renders, and great use of your pulls, as always. I see you’ve got your eye on our Star Prize, Ladies! - I love the posing and expressions and the herdbeast toy is a hoot. And how will you open the gates? - Just very ingeneous. looks cold! #5 Another really nice one, so well composed!

    Sasje, I'm glad you are having fun, It shows - a nice day in the garden is very pleasing, feels like it is just that.
    Protect by the dogs - great movement, pretty scary. #5 Another excellent one. All three of these have strong moods, but different from each other. #6 - Another awesome one. I love the little girl napping with the leviathan pillow.

    Kaputcha, #3 another dynamic render. Look even better at full size, as does #4 with all the richly textured surfaces. I love the weird little buildings.

    aemccullough Zombie Cleansing - nice night lighting, looks like something explosive is in the works.

    emsim- Magic on the Moon - a nutty one. I love Vicky's face. Nice color and night light. #4 I like the driving dog.

    Estroyer, wow, first render?! It's beautiful! And it's even better with the cat!

    Ken OBanion, the madness continues. I love the toy Skyrider and the guy's goofy smile. The cross-dressing survivalist is a real sweetie! #05 looks like Zues didn't show up for this one. ;-)

    Barbult, sorry your first amateur magician was taken off. It was a bit gory. "Dismemberment" is outlawed in the TOS, even unintentional. But zombies and vampires are OK as long as they behave. Hmmm. I love the Chef Sean with the bunnies! Truly wacky. Great expression!

    Totte, #4 Wow, that's a lot of stuff! Cool! I love Pippi watching her TV shows. Renaissance dancing? I've seen that before somewhere. #5 Truly bizarre use of digital camera. Leave it homeland security to come up with something like that. :lol:

    Ostadan, #1 I love it! The three figure are great together. The juggling leopard and gorilla w/tablet (is he recording the act?) are a hoot! And very nice composition.

    Micky, some more of your gorgeous women - a gem, as usual. Great lighting, color, composition, skin and postwork!

    My latest pull:
    beanstalk
    Digital Cameras
    Red and green Macaw
    Diner Tableware
