September 2013 NEW USER Contest WIP Thread.
Sponsored by DAZ3D
Welcome to the monthly NEW Users render contest. Are you new to the 3D World? Are you at the beginning stages of learning 3D art? Have you been around for a little bit but feel you could benefit from some feedback or helpful instruction? Have you been around awhile and would like to help other members start their creative journey's into 3D? Well then come and join the fun as we host our newest contest for this month...
MOOD LIGHTING, Capture the viewers eye with just the lighting in the image.
This months THEME is open ended. Any render you wish to make is OKAY for this contest, the STAR of this month's contest will be the lighting you use and how well the lighting is used to set the mood in the render. What? you say, here this is what we mean.
Sci-Fi renders- You love to do science fiction, do it. A hologram that lights the render will be awesome or other sc-fi stuff.
Fantasy renders- Is that dragon and wizard having a full on fight? The fire and magic tossed around would look so cool.
Horror renders- Creepy up lit creeps? Spooky just enough light to see the evil coming? That has our attention too.
Everyday renders- City scene in mid afternoon? See those great shadows and fill light to soften the dark places, that's great.
Love Scene renders- candle lit dinner for two? Man, I need to do one of those, I love low lighting and great expressions.
Other renders- yes anything you can dream up as long as the lighting is used to MAKE the render speak to the viewer.
For help this month we offer a Quick link to all the old WIP threads from the past. Here is the Master List, you will find help on lighting, posing and other useful render tips in many of the older contests. They are one of the best places for new users to start if you ask me. Not that you did...
I will be checking in on the THIS THREAD as will the rest of the Community Volunteers to try and help with anything you all may need, or to give you any hints and tips you can use if you have more questions or wish for others to give their view on your renders.
The Entries Thread for this Month can be found HERE.
