Hello, and welcome back to another mind-boggling, brain-twisting and great fun Random Runtime Roulette Render Contest.
Now, with the holidays approaching we’re gonna have themed contest, on the theme sayings! Every nation has their own set of sayings this will be fun.
Who can play?
Anyone who can read this can play!
How do you prepare yourself for play?
The rules are very simple, but first you need to have all your items in some kind of order in a textfile, dumped from the itemized history into a text file or a spread sheet. Remove things like software, giftcerts, and special plugins from the list.
Then you use a randomizer to randomly pick 4 items from your list (your Runtime).
Randomizer that works well: http://www.random.org/
There are some situations where you allowed to redraw, these are:
- You picked something that doesn’t work, broken thing, only works in a version / software not used etc etc.
- You picked a software or add-on to a software or anything you should have filtered out from the list.
- You picked only huge environment props and will not be able to render a scene without crashing.
- You picked an item you already have been using in two RRRR renders in this content and that was picked randomly. Three is a curse - rule!
If you pull a bundle, use two three complete items from it, or more if you like, but you do not need to use all, but only picking a hairpin from V4 Complete Bundle is “too little”. A bundle still counts as only one pulled item.
The rules of madness!
Now you have successfully picked 4 items, make a scene, you can add other items as well but the one you picked should be prominent or cleverly used. Render it, post it and make us all laugh! Remember though that the renders must follow the TOS of the forum. As the theme is sayings, your render must illustrate the saying. The sayings can be:
(a) An old traditional saying like: Never put all eggs in the same basket.
(b) Your own just invented saying, like : It’s never too late to quit
(c) Or you can mix your saying from existing ones, like: Never put all eggs in the same pile of dung
The contest categories!
There are two categories, funniest and best, you get it. A fun render might not be a super great render but tells a fun story it will place whatever the viewer just put in the mouth on the screen and keyboard.
It stats now, and will go on until the end of the year (if they Mayans were wrong), Dec 31 23:59:59 DAZ std time.
Yes, we have prizes, thanks to our sponsors!
This months sponsors so far:
Jaderail has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
Totte has put in $20 in DAZ GCs
Ken OBanion has put in $100 in DAZ GCs
Kaputcha has put in $10 in DAZ CGs
I hope we can attract some more sponsors. Sponsors may or may not participate in the contest, their own decision, I won’t lock anyone out just because they are generous to sponsor this. If you want to sponsor, send me a PM or post in the thread!
Bohemian3 has a special $10 CG prize to the best newcomer (the teacher in him could not resist the opportunity to promote learning)!
More to know?
I will might edit this when new info on sponsors arrive.
Maximum number of entries?
Yes, this time we limit the number of entries per person to seven. You can make more, but those beyond 7 will be N/A entries.
Are you ready to render? 3….2….1…..go!
Posting of entries.
To make voting easier, we will post the entries in this thread as usual, where we can chat and comment as usual, posting our pulls and so on. I will setup another thread ( http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/12877/ ) where we only post the images with a tag Name and number, for example Spooky#1.
This way we can have the best of both worlds. One thread where we enjoy and comment and one thread that when voting starts will be easy to browse.
3…...2…...1…. We have a liftoff!
