Hello all!

First,  I would like to say that all the entries are excellent!

I am in the death throws of moving from Japan to the US and will be out of communication for a while.  I don’t really know if this is the place to vote or not but according to the rules, voting is supposed to begin by now.  According to the rules, we are allowed three votes.  As far as I can tell, we can vote for ourselves?

I vote for,

Time enough to last by evilproducer.
Visitors by dudu_00001
Windoze by Stezza.

Again, please forgive me if this is not the place to vote but I’m really crunched for time and I need a little grace at the moment.

Good luck to everybody!

Voting is really tough on this one, so I may be changing by the end of the week.  But, here is my thinking right now. 

EvilProducer, #2, Time Enough
Stezza, #7, Father Time,
Kixum, Door to the Twighlight Zone

I could easily change my vote to any of the others.  I see something new each time I look at Varsel’s backstage, Headwax’s bodysnatchers, Miciodue’s Game of Shadows, and Swordvission’s Shhh!.  The detail in each is amazing.  And Stezza’s Father Time has to split votes with windoze, which I think blends 3d and 2d art perfectly.  I think 0oseven should get the honorable mention prize.  I love the way the lighting rig/cloud/hair creates the swirling storm effect.  I had tried to create a similar effect in a prior monthly contest, so I am jealous.  For similar reasons, I admire Dudu_00001’s Visitors.  The image could easily be 2d art, which is an effect I wish I was better at.  The idea and execution of nCamp’s anime zone is wonderful, I am still laughing.  I thought Philemo did the best job of paying homage to the show in general, while several others focused on a particular episode or the opening credits.

I don’t envy PhilW in his duty in picking honorable mention.  Great job everyone.

Entry Title: “A Game of Shadows”
Artist Name: MicioDue

Entry #: 3
Entry Title: COSMIC VORTEX

Everyone did excellent work!

Entry #: 2
Entry Title: Time Enough at Last
Artist Name: evilproducer

Entry #/ 4
Entry Title: Visitors
Artist Name: DUDU

Entry #: 7
Entry Title: Father Time

It was a very difficult choice as always. It was also a toss up as I also really like :  Door to the Twilght Zone by Kixum
and A Game of Shadows by MicioDue. Not to mention Stezza’s other one.

Thanks very much FD and PhilW for your generosity and time. Well done smile

There’s a lot to love in this challenge! I’ve been extremely busy in the non-Carrara world, so I’ll have to study some of these before I can make my difficult choices!

Great work everyone!

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.

OK… what great entries we have for this Twilight Zone comp..

It makes it hard to pick just 3 entries and I have mulled over them all several times..

I have come to the decision that the creepiest image to me will be my first choice, which in itself is creepy as it is my number in life..

Entry #:5
Entry Title: Shhh!
Artist Name: swordvisions

This image has that creepy monster guy lurking around looking for someone to eat up and that kid looks like he is on his menu… but it’s the teddy bear that creeps me out along with the orange haired chick who reminds me of someone I once knew!! but that teddy bear!!

My second creepy image is

Entry #: 11
Entry Title: “Invasion of the Body Snatchers: The Head Factory.”
Artist Name: Headwax

which in itself is also creepy as it’s the number of my house.. and we did have a young red head kid live down the end of the street who was too scared to venture outside and play.. who knows what scary things the poor kid used to vision but I’d say it would be something like what Headwax has done here.. The young fella did grow out of his scariness of the outside world once he joined up with my twin boys .. not sure if that ended up being a good thing or not though as the years passed by!

My third choice is

Entry #: 2
Entry Title: Time Enough at Last
Artist Name: evilproducer

The number 2 isn’t creepy but I can see myself being the poor guy that’s all alone in the world with a plethora of books to read only to drop my glasses and break them and knowing my luck there isn’t any optometrist shops left either! I’d probably bum out as well by being in a foreign country where all the books are in a different language to English anyway..

all the rest deserve an honorable mention.. good work.

It’s always hard picking from the excellent entries. All of these are being that way.
For various reasons some of them rise to the top as I stroll through them each, paying attention only to the images themselves, ignoring who made them or whatever text went along with them and this is how I pasted my tastes this time around:

———————————————————
First Place
———————————————————

Entry #: 2

Entry Title: Time Enough at Last

Artist Name: evilproducer

———————————————————
Second Place
———————————————————
Entry #: 15

Entry Title: “A Game of Shadows”

Artist Name: MicioDue

———————————————————
Third Place
———————————————————

Entry #:  9
Entry Title:  Evening Twilight

Artist Name: Varsel

———————————————————
———————————————————

Whew… with that over with, I’d just like to add that, even in my apparent lack of forum activity lately, I have been making it a point to peruse the images submitted and some of the WIP. This community is doing some really fun Carrara activity. All of the imagination and different techniques and such going on in these contests is just cool. The requirement to do WIP is a really nice touch. It’s just fun to read through everything and then see how the images materialize out of it all. Bravo to all!

Many good entries and a difficult choice for me too. smile  My top three, no particular order:

Entry #: 2
Entry Title: Time Enough at Last
Artist Name: evilproducer

The spirit of the TV series together with an effective graphical concept. I like it.


Entry #:  9
Entry Title:  Evening Twilight
Artist Name: Varsel

This render had something intriguing , after a while I realized why. Straight lines and hard shadows remind me the covers of Karel Thole, especially some covers of the H.P. Lovecraft Anthology here in Italy.


Entry #: 11
Entry Title: “Invasion of the Body Snatchers: The Head Factory.”
Artist Name: Headwax

Visually disturbing (positive meaning, of course!), a lot of work in Carrara, good result.

Good luck to everybody, great job. smile
