This is deeply weird. A few years ago when I started using Carrara I entered in the freebie contests as a way of learning. I identified Carrara as the program I was using and was never told I couldn’t enter. Was that just because I wasn’t good enough to be a threat then? If not, something has definitely changed in the attitude. So if I go buy a competitor’s prog I can enter, but if I use DAZ software I can’t. That is Kafkaesque.

Okay, here goes my first ever. If I’ve messed anything up please let me know (or if there are obvious ways to improve the render). Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Title: Music’s Call
Prog: Carrara (I know Daz Studio would be better, but I can’t get my head around two new programs at once).
A little postwork in Paint.net

Thank you to everyone who answered my questions!
ok…Cbird “Music’s Call”. I like the simplicity of a well thought out theme in this. No clutter. You start off with 10 points. You have 11 direct link freebies, 2 points each, 22 points. Total freebie points 22. You have a title and theme, 2 points. You have lights, 2 points, you have shadows, 2 points. Clearity is very nice and you can see the freebies, 2 points. Scene reality good, 2 points. Textures are good, 2 points. Postwork was done and mentioned, 2 points.
Cbird ” Music’s Call” total points = 46
This is a perfect score plus 1 extra item. Very well done and listed. Short, sweet and simple. My kinda render…and “My Call”...lol.
Thanks for entering this.
