                            __________________________________

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.

I hope he will make an appearance Dave, being Peter fan.

##I hope you have time to play as well.

I am really looking forward to seeing what people make of the theme, it has quite a few different connotations methinkest.

Who Goes there ?

Based on Who Goes there by John W. Campbell ( AKA The Thing )
The thing walks away from it’s crashed spaceship in the Antarctic only to be found several hundred years later by Swedes ( They are Norwegian Mac Norwegian )

Ok seems like I have painted myself into a corner with this one, the terrain is made up of 3 layers with 2D planes materials, the top two layers are semi- transparent and then skewed slightly up, the snow bank on top of the hill is a 2D plane also skewed, The point at which all these things intersect is exactly where the Thing is standing, If I put anything behind it, it breaks the illusion of a solid terrain, also if I put anything in front of it, that breaks the illusion of the snow bank, I was going for mood here and not realism, The sky is from Horo and David’s HDRI volume skies, There are three light sources. A small amount from the HDRI, the Bryce sun, and a spotlight, Also the FOV is set at 100 so I could get as much of that sky in there as I could.

Thanks for looking

I like snow, I must be strange.

And I almost forgot, Welcome dragonsbain, a new face joining in is always nice to see.

My little dog used to love the snow as well, I shall miss throwing snowballs for him to lose again this year, he always looked so puzzled cos he couldn’t find them

@bigh - good start and you were the first!

@dragonsbain - I love the idea of a monochrome image. New face here - or rather a new name: welcome to the Bryce forums. I’m looking forward to see more by you. Great start!
