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

We debated back and forth, with the release of all the cool new ones and a rather large list of existing monsters on this website from the likes of RawArt, Midnight Stories, Luthbel etc, I think for this contest we are going to stick with DAZ3D Monsters since there is a pretty wide array of them. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but the contest was started because me and hubby really wanted to see all the cool renders of the monsters here so I think keeping with the spirit in which the contest was created, we want to keep it as Monsters and Creatures here on DAZ3D smile

I apologize if I am being daft - when you say Monsters and Creatures here on DAZ3D, do you mean DAZ originals, like the new monsters they have been rolling out, or any monsters found on the DAZ site, like monsters from RawArt, Luthbel, etc?  I only ask because I want to be 100% clear on the rules before I waste any time making a render that doesn’t qualify.

When it comes to monsters, there ain’t no school like old school. So, here’s “Tall Dark Stranger.”

I actually did an alternate version with film grain and scratches added and it was kind of spooky how close it looked to original frame grabs, but some of the fine details did get lost so I ultimately went with the straight presentation.

The Genesis Gorilla & Mr. Hyde mixed to get the classic Big K look.  Set is Rocky flats and Rock Outcrop, backdrop image from CGTextures.com.  Girl is Genesis mix of yT Julie and V5, with Paxton Hair, the Bad Guy for Genesis’ T-Shirt and Hitomi’s panties.  All done in DS4.5 Pro, converted to B&W and scaled in Adobe Photoshop CS6 (plus one annoying branch removal.)

Edit - just saw the size restrictions.

And for those kids who don’t groove on the Dore-inspired Blacks and Whites of Willis H. O’Briens masterwork, here’s the “colorized” version.

Edit: and whoops again, just to be clear, this version of “Tall Dark Stranger” isn’t an entry.  It’s just what the image looked like before I turned it B&W.  Please delete if necessary.

Psst.  Just to be sure, am I correct in interpreting this rule

6. Submit no more then 1 image.

as meaning we can only submit one entry?  Or, as someone just asked me, does it mean one just one image per entry?  (‘Cause I whole gotta lotta monster renders percolating in my head.)

It means you can only add 1 image to the thread.

I think the point of the contest is to use the various creature morphs available at DAZ to make an original monster, not just post a pic using a premade one. Unless I misunderstood?
