New User's Contest - October

Sponsored by DAZ 3D and ARTCollaborations


Are you new to the 3D World? Are you at the beginning stages of learning 3D rendering? Have you been around for a little bit but feel you could benefit from some feedback or instruction? Have you been around awhile and would like to help other members start their creative journey? Well then come and join the fun as we host our newest contest...

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

"Shaders"

This combined contest is designed to help you when re-texturing an item, using either shaders or jpg textures

Shaders and textures are 2 different ways of creating a new look for your Clothing and/or Props and each has it's uses. As this is a complicated subject we have decided to run the Contest over 2 months, concentrating on Shaders during the first month and textures during the second.

Intent: A New Look to an older product.

So for October we are going to concentrate on using shaders Next month we will carry on with the same topic, but use textures on templates.

Which product? The choice is yours, of course, but we do recommend that as a first try you use a product that is infinitely variable in how it can be made to look and also easy to work with.


I will be checking in on the WIP THREAD as will the rest of the Community Volunteers to try and help with anything you all may need



For a list of the current contest rules, please see this thread Contest Rules
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

When working on your submissions, if you would like to get feedback as you work or before posting your final image, please post your image to the WIP THREAD. People will be popping in to the WIP THREAD to give you some critique and advice on your entry and help along the way. Please keep all comments on entries etc to the WIP THREAD as well because comments or requests for help/feedback/advice will be removed from the contest thread and merged into the WIP THREAD. This thread is only for posting final contest submissions.

For those veterans of the forums that would like to help, because this contest is designed for the beginner to learn from, we will be randomly selecting posts offering helpful tips and/or critiques to receive a special voucher as well so whether you are a seasoned artist or an aspiring one, there is fun for everyone!

We would like to thank ARTCollaborations who have graciously decided to sponsor this month’s contest They will be awarding a special prize to the winners of this month’s contest. To view some of ARTCollaborations items please see their store front here ARTCollaborations Store
Closing Date: October 31st 2013

    "Crom"

    ...He dwells on a great mountain. What use to call on him? Little he cares if men live or die. Better to be silent than to call his attention to you; he will send you dooms, not fortune! He is grim and loveless, but at birth he breathes power to strive and slay into a man's soul. What else shall men ask of the gods?

    Rendered in DAZStudio 4.6. No postwork. Different metal shaders on the different parts of the sword.

    My entry:

    Custom shaders on the Franky Outfit. No textures or maps on it. Just played with surface settings. In the render I used 2 Uber Area lights and a spot light. Postwork in Adobe PSE 11 for the fog and the mood.

    My First Entry!

    "Cold Steel Against Warm Flesh"

    Can you Imagine how it would be if you had to be carried in a robot's unfeeling arms?
    Its ice-cold, non-human, metallic body against your soft, delicate skin?
    Totally vulnerable you are, with the sound of servos and motors humming driving it forward.
    Its heavy steel body thumping forward leaving solid imprints in the Martian dust,
    You feel the vibrations of all the mechanical mayhem going on inside it, but there is no heart!!

    Software Used:
    DAZ Pro 4.6
    Bryce Pro 7.1

    Sorry for asking this, but I was wondering. The storecredit has arrived (a couple of days ago), but not the product. I'm mostly just wondering if it was the same for the others or if something has gone awry

    *hugs*

    Same here. The credit is there (Thanks!), the product not.

    Frank did ask that you give it a few days. Things have been a bit hectic this month for those at DAZ 3D HQ.
