                                  Third DAZ 3D Bryce rendering Challenge
                  ___________________________________________

                                                    NOW SPONSORED BY DAZ 3D

                  Theme for this month is “I had this weird dream”
                            __________________________________

This thread is the WIP thread, so you can post here to show us how things are coming along before transferring the render to the actual Contest thread for judging.


Rules
~~~~~

  All renders must be new renders.

  You can enter up to 3 renders.

  You must abide by the DAZ 3D forum TOS

  Imported content is allowed, but the render must be obviously a Bryce render.

  Post Work permitted, but please keep it to a minimum.

  Rules may be changed for subsequent Challenges, depending on the theme and the person who has selected it.

  The winner of the June Challenge will get the chance to name the theme for the July contest.

  This will then continue with subsequent winners choosing the theme for the next contest, which will enable a new contest to start with the minimum of delay between contests.

  Whoever nominates the subject for the Challenge can modify the rules to suit that challenge.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                                          Challenge ends on 30th June Midnight DAZ 3D time. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Lady, I believe if you go back and check I offered $20 in DAZ 3D GC’s for this contest. I hope the nice folks here at DAZ 3D will still match my amount. I’ve learned all I know about Bryce from you and the places you pointed me. Maybe one day I’ll even post a render.

OK, I’ll go first.

There is a lot I could have done and a lot I plan to do with this render, but for less than 24 hours work it’s not looking too bad.
Comments and criticisms always welcome.

I like it! Nifty piece of imagination going on here. It must have been a real pain to get the eagles, ropes and bed frame to all line up and in there proper positions and looking like they have some weight to them. First one out of the gate and you’re setting the bar pretty high there pal…I guess I’d better get crackin’...

@Dave:  I love it when someone produces images like that one then says it ain’t too bad.  Nice work.

Wow theSavage64 - your flying bed image made me gasp in amazement and delight - I love all the scene elements - they make for a worthwhile dream indeed!

Just a start—we’ll see where this goes.  The head stays, for sure.

Well, I finally put Minecraft (thanks David!!) aside and got in gear to produce a really weird dream image.  I still haven’t got a good handle on making these reflections, but each time tried is a learning process.  The stairs and doors were downloaded from a place I can’t remember at the moment.  The door wasn’t the best because it and the lock set didn’t download quite right.  Might be because it was an .3DS file.  Anyway, found out the lock set wasn’t grouped, or named, so fix that.  Door parts also had trouble joining each other, but I got that fixed as well.  Just added the material for the stairs, jock set, and doors.  Make sure you watch that first step, it’s a doozy.

Instant Escher!  I have got to learn how to do those reflections.

OK this is a finished contest entry.  It has many imperfections, is not beautiful . . but is perfectly weird.  No mas!
Head material is copper from David’s pro materials—a really interesting material.
Background is a spherical map of a similar scene on distorted spheres.
Head itself is a Genesis figure from Daz hacked apart using boolean operations in Hexagon (I’m liking that Daz bridge to Bryce and Hexagon - handy).
Green guy is another Genesis generic male with old-age morphs applied and wearing 3DU Kimberly’s pants (which have a far less sexier look on him) walking up Bryce spiral stairs.  Particle emitter producing green balls.
Head scarf is Optitex’s dynamic scarf applied to the disembodied head in Daz and then bridged to Bryce, with a custom texture.
The text on the scarf reads “MASS-T-CATION.”
What does it mean?  Whatever you want it to.

Looks good now.

I need a few more WIPS before I post the clean entry thread for judging, but don’t forget to trasfer it over once I do that.

This is a slow start this month, hope it picks up a bit.  I thought that bigger prizes would get more entires, but doesn’t seem to be that way so far.
