I see Stonemason’s models in a lot of Bryce images (in a few if mine as well) and I noticed that he has a image contest. The grand prize is his entire model catalog(115 models!).

I hope the prizes goes to the professional Artists that they present real and modern and new ideas in CG 3d Art
As I will not participate in this contest but this didn’t prevent me to present my hopes to all who will participate in this contest and I say to them if you introduce a new ideas in our art that walk side by side with our World civilization and futuristic ideas ......
good luck for all who will participate in this contest ......

Thanks for highlighting this here Dan.  I was thinking about doing it myself as well.

It is a great contest, and a wonderful prize list for those of us who do use imported models in our renders.

Stonemason does some really cool models.

It occurs to me that if a bryce render using some of the advanced lighting options of Bryce were to win this contest that could concievably attract a whole bunch of new users to Bryce since Stonemason’s work is so well known and so widely popular.

I am hoping we will get a few Bryce renders entered.  I know I will enter, although I don’t think I have any chance of winning, it’s the taking part that counts.

Agreed,  simply posting exceptional Bryce made renders showcasing Stonemason’s models into the contest thread will generate interest from forum viewers,  because in the end everyone wants to create better art. Show them what can be done with Bryce.

I don’t know Pam, I gather what’s really going to determine the winner is artwork that pops. To me artwork that pops is artwork that is creative and makes the viewers mind go beyond the image. I think you have that ability. Maybe you won’t get a top prize but I’d be surprized if you didn’t get any of the prizes.

You’re right, I shouldn’t have said win, in my original comment, whether a Bryce image wins or not isn’t really important but if Bryce 7 Pro’s abilities get shown off to the extent I’ve seen many members of this forum capable of then I think it will definitely make a few people say, “whoa, I didn’t know Bryce could do that, I better look into Bryce more.”

Looking good Pam, some great light and shade and the light beams are very atmospheric.

I’ve posted a render too: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/15430/P120/#230645
