New User's Contest - July 2012
Sponsored by DAZ3D
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...
"Posed to Perfection"
Intent: To help in better understanding how a pose impacts a scene as well as how to use photo references to help create that perfect pose.
This month we will be focusing on Posing. For this contest we would like you to search the web for a Pose you feel is dynamic and interesting and then use that reference as a guide as you try to replicate it within your app of choice to be used in any way you would like within your final entry. I will be posting an example image as well as some ideas on terms to search and some other tips in the WIP THREAD.
For a list of the current contest rules, please see this thread: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/3440/
In addition to the rules listed in the link above, please also note the following additional rules for this contest:
1) When posting your entry this month you MUST also post the image you used for reference (or link to it).
2) To keep things fair, we also require that when replicating the pose you start from scratch. In other words, please start the creation of your pose of Vicky, Michael, Genesis etc from the figures default position without the use of Pose packs to aide in your end result.
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 HERE
. 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 as 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!
Closing Date: July 30th 2012
