Just Like the Grownups
The March 2014 Freebie Challenge

“Careful the things you say,
Children will listen.
Careful the things you do,
Children will see.
And learn.”
- Stephen Sondheim, Into The Woods

How often do you see children copying what the adults in their lives do? This month, we’ll see them throughout the challenge!

Show us a pre-teen, or two, or more, acting like the grown-ups do. Are they pretending to be grown-up? Are they helping out the older folks? Are they dressed up, or just in the clothes they usually wear? That’s up to you - but they have to be front-and-center in the renders.


THE RULES

The Rules are in the usual thread, except that I’m exercising my powers as host to require eight freebies, not ten.

Special Rule: Since this month’s renders must have pre-teens in prominent roles, for this month only, the pre-teen characters in the DAZ3D store - ChibiBel, Nana Original Chibi Toon Figure, Toon Boy Sam, Toon Girl Sadie, and Sadie and Sam for Genesis - are considered to be “no-count” elements. Their morph packs, if any, still count as paid items as per Rule 6. (Matt, Maddie, Kids 4, and Genesis Basic Child already were no-count elements according to Rule 3. And, of course, Decoco is free.)

A Word to the Wise: The forum’s TOS says “Images that contain depictions of children are especially sensitive and will be reviewed even more strictly than other such images.” I do hope this won’t be an issue this month.


THE PRIZES:

As usual, DAZ3D is giving GCs to the creators of the first-, second-, and third-place entries, and Jaderail is giving GCs to all of these folks plus the Honorable Mentions.

Once again, Mr Sparky has stepped forward with a gift of the winner’s choice - any one product with only his name on it at Poser Direct. This will go to the first-place winner.

tiggersprings has donated an expression pack for 3D Universe’s Dennis:Essentials. All of the Winners and Honourable Mentions will receive this gift.

fictionalromance is giving the top three winners advance copies of the “Lower Class Vintage Dress” for G2F. See here for more information: http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/37797/P75/#564612

And trumarcar has donated an outfit for K4 - “Just Like Mommy”. This will be going to the top three winners.


To recap:

First Place: $15 GC from DAZ3D, $20 GC from Jaderail, Expressions for 3DU Dennis by tiggersprings, Lower Class Vintage Dress by fictionalromance, Just Like Mommy by trumarcar, one item of your choice by mrsparky from Poser Direct

Second Place: $12 GC from DAZ3D, $15 GC from Jaderail, Expressions for 3DU Dennis by tiggersprings, Lower Class Vintage Dress by fictionalromance, Just Like Mommy by trumarcar

Third Place: $8 GC from DAZ3D, $10 GC from Jaderail, Expressions for 3DU Dennis by tiggersprings, Lower Class Vintage Dress by fictionalromance, Just Like Mommy by trumarcar

Honorable Mentions (×2): $5 GC from Jaderail, Expressions for 3DU Dennis by tiggersprings

Entry Gift: There might be one - watch this space!


THE JUDGES:

fictionalromance. Kismet2012, and Odaa have volunteered to judge this challenge. Thank you all!

NAE - at least, not an entry for this month’s Challenge. Folks who’ve been around for a while may remember this from the August 2011 Freebie Challenge.

This is a really cool theme. I have an idea but I have to figure out how to pull it off with freebies.

NAE:  Not enough free stuff in here…and not going to add more, besides it’s an older scene that I was just playing around with to test various shader settings.

The backdrop image, the gown (and it’s a rather bad conversion at that) and the hair are the only ‘countable’ items.  Genesis is sporting a custom sculpted morph and a no longer available skin…the backdrop plane, tissue and other stuff is all self made and not up for download…

I call it…“Look mom, it fits!”

13). REC Weaponry shaders (used on crosses): http://redeyecat.wordpress.com/tag/ds-shaders/page/2/

Your link labeled “Still Life” is pointing to “Prince of Tides”, and “REC Weaponry shaders” is pointing to an index page that starts with “REC Plushie Shaders”.

More importantly, it’s extremely difficult to see the shoes H3 is wearing - they blend into the shadows so much that it’s difficult for me to tell where they end and the cobblestones begin. But you have enough other freebies to qualify anyway.

ENTRY ACCEPTED. If you could edit your post to fix those two misplaced links, I’d appreciate it.

Sorry about that :(  I had forgotten that REC’s website was wordpress based, and that there were therefore individual pages for the freebies.  I don’t know what I was thinking when I put up the Prince of Tides link, but both have now been fixed.  I also shifted Etienne shoes to the “neutral item” area.  Thank you for hosting this, it looks like a fun theme.
