Ooooh…

Me likey monsters!

Just one big question:

Frank0314 - 31 May 2013 12:19 PM

or Any other scary looking figure you can come up with

Does that mean I don’t have to use any yucky human base figures?

Here’s an example of using the Gigalien Parts on The Daz Cow (with a couple bits from Swidhelm’s Alien) which I did a while ago and am unsure if this sort of concept is a no go because it doesn’t use any yucky humans (and for that matter, the Swidhelm Alien is not even a DAZ Product, but a ShareCG Freebie and I’m not quite sure if this is limited to DAZ Only items or at least *some* DAZ Items, or if Anything Goes!)

Picture just to illustrate my question, and is Not an entry!

Yes you can use animals for your renders.

Just post your images here and at the end I will split them off to a contest thread. This way the thread don’t get lost.

8. Minimal Post-work to your image. Please keep within the spirit of the contest.

Please clarify this point; I do all of my rendering in DazStudio, but I post work in Photoshop with a set of filters.. For example (not an entry):

Using filters etc is fine, we just don’t want tons and tons of postwork where the entire image is completely changed by it (like where tons of parts are painted in…we wanted to concentrate more on the render then what can be done to it after (if that makes sense) Some postwork is allowed, just don’t go crazy.

Just a quick question, but does the monster figure need to be from this site, or can it be any monster figure from anywhere?

It does say in the contest title

DAZ Monster and Creature Render Contest

So I would assume that you are limited to using Daz monsters and creatures.
